National Novel Writing Month Participants Love Custom Lanyards

September 29th, 2014

National Novel Writing Month takes place every November.  Writing groups from around the country are preparing for the month long writing extravaganza in a number of different ways.  From building websites to organizing word count check-ins with members, event planners have got things covered.

One thing that many groups do to build anticipation is create writing-themed memorabilia to hand out to participants of NaNoWriMo.  Custom lanyards are fitting because they allow people to wear keys, hold onto cell phones, and carry identification and currency with ease.  Writers can grab their lanyards and go from one destination to the next without missing a beat.  This frees up time for them so they can focus on the task at hand.  Not many people can write a complete novel in 30 days.

Signature Lanyards makes the custom lanyard design process fun.  Take a look at our Design a Lanyard page to see how your National Novel Writing Month idea or concept would look on the different styles of lanyards that we offer.  Visit to try out our handy design tool.

A few of the ways you can make your lanyards stand out in a crowd include:

  • Selecting a style that will show off your logo or emblem well.
  • Choosing the color you like best.
  • Finding an attachment option that your members will find useful.
  • Adding text that helps writers remember this year’s NaNoWriMo.

Make this NaNoWriMo even more memorable for participants.  In addition to feeling the glory of completing a novel in 30 days or less, writers in your community are awarded custom lanyards as finisher gifts.  The personalized mementos serve as a reminder that hard work and perseverance pays off.  Although there is no monetary prize for completing a novel in a month, participants relay how deeply gratifying the experience is.

Request a free price quote from Signature Lanyards today.  We’ll contact you via email with details about your inquiry and a digital file attachment of artwork for you to review.  After we hear back from you, we’ll proceed with the ordering process.  We need your approval to finalize your lanyard order with our production department.

Custom Lanyards Promote National Family Literacy Month

September 23rd, 2014

National Family Literacy Month takes place each November.  The annual initiative encourages families to make reading a practice that they do together.  Young readers, in particular, need to practice their reading skills outside of the classroom in order to strengthen them.  A trip to the local library or bookstore can often offer children what they need to develop a love for reading.  Setting aside time as a family to engage in literacy strengthening exercises is encouraged throughout the month.

If you’re a business, organization, school or group who plans to celebrate National Family Literacy Month, there are a number of different things you can do to prepare for the occasion.  One in particular will be very helpful.  Partner up with Signature Lanyards to create a one-of-a-kind memento that you can hand out to members of your community throughout the month of November.

We offer a number of different lanyard styles for you to choose from.  For example, two of our best sellers include polyester lanyards and nylon lanyards.  Each has its own unique look and visual impact.  We also provide you with options where attachments are concerned.  Being able to carry items on a lanyard is very appealing.  This frees up the hands so they can be busied turning the pages of a book or magazine.

Learn more about the different custom options we make available to our customers by visiting  Select the color of lanyard you want to serve as the “base” of your design.  Decide which words or phrases need emphasis.  Select a logo or image that you feel ties into the overall theme.
