Dye-sublimated Lanyards

Dye-sublimated lanyards are a popular type of lanyard that is created using a printing process known as dye-sublimation. The process involves printing the design onto a transfer paper using special dye-sublimation ink, which is then transferred onto the lanyard material through heat and pressure.

Here are the steps involved in making dye-sublimated lanyards:

  1. Design creation: The design for the lanyard is first created using graphic design software like Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw. The design can include text, logos, and other graphics.
  2. Printing onto transfer paper: The design is then printed onto a special transfer paper using dye-sublimation ink. This ink is unique because it turns into a gas when heated, rather than a liquid.
  3. Preparing the lanyard material: The lanyard material is typically made of polyester, nylon, or a similar synthetic material. The material is cut into the desired length and width, and any necessary attachments (such as a metal clip) are added.
  4. Heat transfer: The transfer paper is placed onto the lanyard material, and the two are placed into a heat press. The press applies heat and pressure to the transfer paper, causing the dye-sublimation ink to turn into a gas and penetrate the surface of the lanyard material.
  5. Cooling and finishing: After a few seconds, the heat press is opened, and the transfer paper is removed. The lanyard material is allowed to cool before any final finishing touches, such as trimming any loose threads or adding a safety breakaway.

The resulting dye-sublimated lanyard has a high-quality, full-color design that is durable and long-lasting. This process is commonly used to create lanyards for events, conferences, schools, and businesses.

Another type of lanyard to consider is a badge reel lanyard. This style allows the id card or keys to be extended from the lanyard without removing them from the lanyard or from having to remove the lanyard from your neck. When not in use the reel recoils the keys back to the end of the lanyard
