The many uses of lanyards for business
Lanyards have become very popular and being used in various ways by many different people all over the world. They are something most often associated with the working world, which is true, but are also used for many unique as well as handy things every day.

The standard lanyard is a thread or rope that is worn around the neck and used to hold something important such as an ID card or badge and was created because these items have a great importance or purpose and are easily forgotten. It is best that items of such importance be carried without any difficulty with the use of a lanyard. Within organisations and companies, the customised lanyard is most popular.

The lanyard was first used by the military to hold a whistle, pistol or sword, all of which held great importance. This basic lanyard slowly changed into something more decorative with various patterns and colours and today is used in almost all parts of the world.

1. Security. Widely used in hospitals, schools, nursery for identification and security purposes.
