Attach Your Take Out Menus to Custom Lanyards as a Way to Boost Sales

January 30th, 2015

Busy people love take out.  When there isn’t time to dine in a restaurant, men and women turn to the take out menu to eat their favorite foods.  As a restaurant owner, you’re likely to offer a takeout menu to customers.  How often do you replace lost menus and how much does it cost your business?

What if we had a cost-effective solution that defrayed costly printing costs?  Would you be game to listen to our ideas?  As a leading custom lanyard company we offer solutions to our customers’ needs.  Your business is important to us.  Let’s come up with a fun and inventive solution together.

Standard and Upgrade Attachment Options

Here’s an idea for you to think about.  Why not create miniature versions of your take out menu and attach them to the lanyards you give away?  We offer a number of attachment options for you to choose from.  For example, you can select a Lobster Claw, J-Hook or Split Key Ring for free.  They are among the standard attachments we offer with every paid order.

For an additional cost per lanyard, upgrade to a Thumb Hook, Carabiner Hook, Oval Hook or No-Swivel Hook.  Each offers sturdiness and functionality to the lanyards you order.  One last option that works well for some restaurants is the badge holder.  Place a folded up mini menu in the plastic pocket attached to each lanyard for safekeeping.

Your Idea + Our Lanyards = An Outstanding Gift for Your Customers

Come up with your own inventive way to use custom lanyards.  The durable gift items are as versatile as they are unique.  Brainstorm some ideas and then contact Signature Lanyards through our website, by phone or email to request a no obligation, free price quote.  In order to serve you best, we’ll need to know the quantity of lanyards needed, the style you prefer, and the purpose of your order.

Office Organization Tips That Prepare You for National Clean Up Your Computer Month

January 29th, 2015

If you have one resolution this year, make it your mission to get your office in order.  Start with your desk.  It’s National Clean Up Your Computer Month.  What a great place to organize!  A few simple changes can boost morale, increase productively, and give you a sense of peace.  Forget about the frustration of a messy office.  You won’t have to deal with that anymore!

Here are some tips that will help you better organize your office space:

  • Declutter your desktop. Shred papers that you no longer need.  Empty trays, drawers, and wastebaskets.  Wipe everything down so it’s clean and ready to use once again.
  • Establish work zones. Designate areas of the office for different tasks.  Have a main workspace, a reference area, and a supply area.
  • Keep USB flash drives within reach by attaching them to custom lanyards. Instead of saving files to the hard drive of your computer, save it to a thumb drive to keep your computer in optimal working order.  Encourage your employees or co-workers to do the same.
  • Label office supplies so they are returned to the right employee. Staplers, hole punches, and office manuals get passed around.  Make sure they get returned to you.  Label them and no one will have a doubt as to whom the items belong to.
  • Create a folder system for all important documents. Make it easy to get access to the information you need.  Come up with a system that works for you.  Make document names simple and date them if needed.
  • Delete duplicate documents. Scan files and delete what you no longer need.  Free up space in your USB drive for new documents.
  • Sort mail. Create separate piles based on what needs to be done.  If mail needs to be read, put it in the “to read” pile.  Shred advertisements.  Hand off bills to the accounting department so they can be taken care of immediately.
  • Use baskets, bins, and containers to keep clutter minimal. There are a number of places where storage items are available for purchase.  Buy a few and be creative when placing them.  You’d be surprised how much space is available in the smallest of offices with baskets, bins, and containers.

A little organization goes a long way in improving efficiency, eliminating frustration, and keeping on top of workplace affairs successfully.  If you haven’t thought about cleaning up your computer and office space yet, now is the time to do so.  The new year brings with it new opportunities to do things better than you did in the past.

Make sure you have enough custom lanyards on hand to supply your entire office with one.  We offer polyester, nylon, woven, tube, eco-friendly, and specialty options to meet your needs.  Learn more about the styles available by visiting our homepage at

You can also call 1-800-270-9019 toll-free or email  We provide free artwork and design services as a courtesy to our customers.  Take the stress out of organizing.  Contact us with your design ideas today.

Eco-Friendly Lanyards for National Green Week and Other Environmental Issues

December 4th, 2014

National Green Week is an environmental initiative celebrated in the UK in February each year.  You don’t have to live in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales to get the word out about environmental issues.  Nor do you have to wait until National Green Week to raise awareness.  You can do it every day of the year in the choices you make.

One of the first things you can do to make others aware of environmental problems is by creating custom eco-friendly lanyards to hand out to members of your community.  People like to show support for the causes that mean something to them.  Encourage them to spread the word about your efforts and to discuss solutions that minimize the taxation of the planet and its natural resources.

Eco-friendly lanyards can be flat polyester or imprinted tube.  Before sewn, the lanyards measure 35 inches long.  They are available in 3/8 inch, ½ inch, and 5/8 inch for tube lanyards, and 5/8 inch, ¾ inch, and 1 inch for flat polyester.  You can select black, white, yellow, green, red, orange, light blue, royal blue, gray or dark brown for the colors for your gift items.  Exact color matches are not available because of the nature of the material being used.

There is a longer production time for this style of lanyard so keep that in mind.  Ordering early prevents any issues from arising.  Lanyards are created 14-18 business days or less from the date of order.  The sooner you contact us with your request, the faster we can get a free price quote and email attachment file of artwork to your inbox for you to review.

Create Custom Lanyards for Your Healthcare Facility Workers

November 14th, 2014

There is a big demand for identification in healthcare facilities these days.  With so many people coming in and out of hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and retirement communities, it’s important to know who works for whom and who is just visiting.  To get rid of the confusion, many healthcare companies require employees, vendors, and volunteers to present identification at all times to access the building.

Lanyards are Suitable for Day-to-Day Wear

Identification cards can be hard to carry and to remember to wear on a day-to-day basis.  That’s where custom lanyards come into play.  Sturdy and attractive, they can carry everything a healthcare facility worker, vendor or volunteer needs without getting in the way.  There are a number of different attachment options to choose from.  Each adds a different function to the lanyards.

Standard Attachment Options

Here are the different standard options you have to choose from:

  • Lobster Claws
  • Bulldog Clips
  • J-Hooks
  • Split Key Rings

Each is free with the purchase of custom lanyards.

Upgrade Attachment Options

Our upgrade attachment options include:

  • Thumb Hooks
  • Carabiner Hooks
  • Oval Hooks
  • No Swivel Hooks

Ranging in price from $0.25 to $0.30 each, upgrade attachments offer strength.

Additional Attachment Options

Additional attachment options include:

  • Safety Breakaway
  • Velcro Breakaway
  • Buckle
  • Retractors

Some facilities choose safety and Velcro breakaways particularly if they’re in direct contact with patients.  You never know when someone will grab onto and pull on a lanyard.  This precautionary measure reduces the number of workplace injuries that occur each year.  Best of all, safety breakaways add $0.10 to each lanyard and Velcro breakaways add $0.11 to each lanyard.
