Silk-screen imprinting is a method of transferring ink onto a fabric surface through the designs outlined in a fine mesh screen. This method produces very good to exceptional quality yet is the most economical due to its simplicity. Advances in silk-screening have made it possible to create depth and gloss through additional ink application passes, rendering high-quality, decal-like results.

We always strive to meet our customers' needs.
And you wont find a higher quality more luxurious type of lanyard material. This results in a clear and crisp Logo imprint.

Nylon lanyards are the choice for most large organisations, complex logo reproduction is a breeze with nylon being such a fine weaved material it is no wonder that so many companies turn to this fabric for ultimate branding options.

The silk content in the material means that these lanyards are soft to touch and are also stronger than standard polyester lanyards.

Nylon lanyards may also be described as very similar to a seat belt material, however much softer and not as harsh on the skin as a seatbelt.


  • Soft to touch
  • Strong material like a seat belt
  • Complex logo reproductions
  • Pantone dye matching available
  • Silky high gloss finish (much like ribbon)
  • Extremely popular with big brand companies

Nylon lanyards are also used when heat transfer print is required by a client, this is the best way to achieve gradients and colour tints, even photographic images are available with heat transfer onto a nylon lanyard.

Heat transfer onto a polyester lanyard would result in a crackled image reproduction and would not finish as well as a nylon lanyard.

So in conclusion nylon lanyards and smooth and may sometimes be percieved as far superior to polyester lanyards.

Nylon is a generic designation for a family of synthetic polymers known generically as polyamides and first produced on February 28, 1935 by Wallace Carothers at DuPont. Nylon is one of the most commonly used lanyard materials today.

Nylon was first used commercially to manufacture tooth brush bristles, Soon after it was used to manufactured womens stockings (also called Nylons).

Nylon lanyards are made of repeating units linked by peptide bonds (another name for amide bonds) Occasionally nylon lanyards will be reffered too as Polyamide Lanyards or (PA Lanyards).

Nylon lanyards are the only lanyards to be commercially made entirely from coal, water and air. They are formed into monomers of intermediate molecular weight, which are then reacted to form long polymer chains.

Nylon was intended to be a synthetic replacement for silk and substituted for it in many different products after silk became scarce during World War II. It replaced silk in military applications such as parachutes and flak vests, Nylon lanyards are more durable and stronger than polyester lanyards, they are manufactured from using the same fundamentals as tyre internals or (Tyre canvas).

Nylon shows various characteristics including:

Variation of luster: nylon has the ability to be very lustrous, semilustrous or dull.

Durability: its high tenacity fibers are used for seatbelts, tire cords, ballistic cloth and other uses.

High elongation

Excellent abrasion resistance

Highly resilient (nylon fabrics are heat-set)

High resistance to:
insects, fungi and animals
molds, mildew, rot
many chemicals

Used in carpets and nylon stockings

Melts instead of burning, Excellent for safety lanyards.

Used in many military applications.

Nylon lanyards truly are an excellent lanyard material are are far superior to Polyester lanyards.

Dye Sublimation Lanyards

As dye-sublimation printers utilise heat to transfer the dye onto the print media, the printing speed is limited by the speed at which the elements on the thermal head can change temperature. By using the material to absorb various wavelengths of light, meaning we can create ultra bright or ultra dark, highly vibrant images and print them onto a lanyard of your choice.


Glow in the dark Printed Lanyards

The customisation options are the same as our other lanyards, the same clips and fittings and material options are available.

Tubular Polyester Lanyards

Our lanyards can be produced to match any pantone colour and then printed in any pantone colour so you have exactly the lanyard you want.View our Pantone colour chart here. The manufacturing process of the imprinted tube polyester lanyard gives the product a stretchability greater than that of any other style. Tube lanyards are made from loosely stitched polyester, formed into a tube and folded at the end.
