Lanyard Lab Blog
Information and Fun. We're more than just lanyards.

In addition to our budding Lanyards in the Wild series of posts (of which there is only one so far), I’d like to also regularly point out here just how effective custom lanyards in promoting your business or organization.

I was at the Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom recently and a particular lanyard stood out to me. Now, anyone who has been to a Disney theme park since Disney began their pin trading program 10 years ago knows that you can’t walk 15 feet without spotting a cast member (Disney employee) or park guest wearing a lanyard. They’re used both to show off collected lapel pins as well as to display pins available for trading with other cast members and guests.

So in walking through the Magic Kingdom and in helping to run Lanyard Lab, I’ve become quite accustomed to seeing lanyards everywhere – to the point where I rarely pay attention to them anymore. But as I passed by Space Mountain recently, I my attention was drawn to another park guest wearing a bright blue “Universal Studios Orlando” lanyard.

Here I was, standing in front of one of the most famous rides in the world’s most popular theme park and I suddenly found myself thinking about a nearby competing theme park just because I read someone’s custom lanyard. And it wasn’t even a result of a paid advertisement, but rather just some guy who decided he liked the lanyard and would wear it.

Now that’s a powerful promotional product.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get my camera out in time to snap a picture of the lanyard described here but I assure you it was quite effective in getting me to think about Universal Studios instead of the Disney park I was standing in, even if only for a second or two.

While we generally operate a Monday – Friday business, we still check our e-mail and voice mail throughout the weekend, as we like to always stay on top of what’s happening at Lanyard Lab.

As part of checking in today, I realized that we had not yet updated the copyright notice in the footers of our web site… and we’re 16 days into 2010!

So let this be a reminder to all of you out there: Take a moment now to update your web sites, documents, e-mail signatures, or anything else that contains a copyright year.

Or, better yet, here’s a bit of PHP code you can use to never have to worry about this problem again:

<?php echo date(”Y”) ?>

That code will automatically insert the current year (or at least the one set on your web server) to any .php file. It won’t work in any other type of file on the web though.

Now, back to the e-mails…

Today I’d like to introduce a new photo series for this blog:

Lanyards in the Wild

The goal of this series is to showcase various custom lanyards we’ve spotted while out and about. We don’t necessarily know the people who are using the lanyard we plan to take pictures of, so we won’t be showing their faces here. The lanyards are what are interesting to us anyway. We think it’s fun to see how different people utilize them.

So here’s the first:

Wild Lanyard 1

This custom lanyard was seen hanging out of this man’s pocket at a local supermarket.

Here’s what we think it is:
Style: Printed Polyester
Width: 3/4″
Lanyard Color: Reflex Blue C
Design Color: White, silk screen print
Attachments: Plastic Buckle and most likely a Key Ring (Many people use lanyards to hold their keys, leaving the extra material dangling out of a pocket as seen here.)

We hope this ongoing photo series will be helpful to readers of this blog who are interested in custom lanyards but want to see examples of them in use. Let us know if you find it handy.

And please feel free to e-mail us any photos you take of other…

Our hopes for 2010

About: Customers, Holiday, Lanyards, Randomness

It’s Dec. 31, 2009 at 10:36 p.m. as I begin to write this quick post on our new blog.

I thought it would be appropriate to add a quick entry to our new venture at the end of a great year.

What’s in store for Lanyard Lab in 2010? We hope to meet many amazing new customers, not only to help design and produce custom lanyards, but also just to get to broaden our horizons.

That’s what makes this job great. Sure the routine of answering phones and e-mails, designing lanyard proofs, sending price quotes, and processing orders can get repetitive. But it’s the individual customers that consistently make it entertaining and enlightening.

So for 2010, we look forward to not only success in business, but success in forming new relationships and learning little more about what makes the human race so unique and each if its members so very special.

Happy New Year! We’ll talk to you in 2010.

Show us your lanyards!

About: Lanyard Fans, Lanyards

Yes, it’s only a couple minutes after posting the very first entry on this new Lanyard Lab blog, but we couldn’t wait to share our first (and possibly only) good idea for possible uses of this blog.

We want to see you!

No, you don’t have to fly to visit us in Central Florida (though I’m sure you’d enjoy a Disney vacation). But we would like to see you enjoying the custom lanyards you have ordered from Lanyard Lab.

So, snap a photo of yourself or someone else happily wearing your custom lanyards, e-mail it to us, and we’ll proudly display it here on this blog.
