Printed lanyards: At our price, and with all the additional services we offer, we sell a lot of them! Many thousands a month actually, and doing so, we obviously get many questions about them as well.
The kind of questions that we hear the most though are along these lines: “How will my screen printed lanyards look like? How will my logo look like on a woven lanyard? Will the colors look vivid on a dye sublimated lanyard?”, and so on.
I have to admit that, if I would be new to the matter of printed lanyards, and I had to order 3000 of them, then I would also like to get a good idea of what I’m looking at! After all, you do want the best out of your marketing budget, and sometimes, adding a bit to the total cost by switching to another printing process, can make a world of difference in the end result.
This being said, I decided to take close-up shots of the most common printed lanyards, so that the above question would be resolved once and for all.
Thus, here we go:
Two samples of the most common one of all printed lanyards: A Petersham Lanyard with a 1 color screen print:
Next we have a Petersham lanyard with a two color screen print:
And a similar one where the design makes a clever use of only 2 colors
Next: Even though the print is using only the color Black, this is a Petersham lanyard, full color dye sublimated.
Another Petersham Lanyard with full color dye sublimation.
Onto the Polyester lanyards now: Polyester Lanyard with full color dye sublimation print.
Again the same remark: Using a Dye Sublimation full color print, doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to print in more then one color. It is also about the look of the dye sub print, and the level of detail that is required. Just check the Registered Trademark sign and you will see how much detail can be achieved with a dye sublimation print.
And a second sample of a Polyester Lanyard with a full color Dye Sublimation Print, again using only one color
And some Polyester lanyards, Full color Dye Sublimation print with multiple colors:
From here it’s only a small step to the Satin Lanyards with Dye Sublimation Printing, which I personally tend to find to return the most vivid colors of the Dye Sublimation Print process!
A Satin Lanyard With Full color Dye Sublimation print, but again using only one color.
The biggest difference in the look between the Polyester Lanyards above and the Satin Lanyards below is the shine of the Satin Lanyards.
Let’s look how a Dye Sublimation Print looks like now when used to the fullest:
Satin Lanyards with Full color Dye Sublimation print going for it! 🙂
One thing about the importance of good quality artwork!
We can only print as good, as the artwork that we get from you. Therefore, the importance of a good quality Vector artwork can not be underestimated.
And we assist our customers with this important part of the process by offering FREE BASIC ARTWORK free or when a more complex artwork is needed, at a very low cost!
To give you an idea of the importance of artwork, check the 2 samples below.
Ok! For now, that’s what I’ve got!
I will be adding woven lanyards real soon but I hope the above clears some questions already!
Till then, keep well
