More Than an ID Strap

LanyardsWhen most folks go out of their offices for lunch, one of the things that can really cramp their style is having a bad looking id strap around their necks. Not only will this id strap tell the whole world that you’re not free to have fun in the afternoon, but it can also make women less attracted to you because they do not like the way you look. This, however, is a common problem, and if this same problem sounds like familiar to you because it is part of your everyday life, fret not because this answer to your problems is here.

For the working man who wants to get more attention in a good way, it is time to say goodbye to your old ID strap. Lanyards, which are tremendously fashionable, are the only things you should consider when wearing your ID to work or to play. Lanyards, unlike ID straps, are not dull and do not break easily, unlike their counterparts which not only look bad but are not well equipped to sustain a plethora of situations such as extreme winds, theft, and the like. Although most people still tend to go for the old ID straps because these are usually cheap since they are made from a single string of wool or other similar household items, the truth of the matter is that you should never sacrifice quality just to get something on the cheap. Lanyards may be pricier than your average ID strap made at home, but in the span of a year, you would probably have had to keep replacing that home-made ID strap because it is not of superior quality.

Likewise, a lot of people who use the old ID straps always run the risk of their ID being lost or misplaced. This is a common occurrence because most of the time, the old ID straps snap when you least expect it, and before you know it, your ID is in the hands of another person. This situation may be well and good if the stranger who happens to pick up your ID is a friend or a good Samaritan, but if the person who happens to pick up your ID with all your details is a conman or some other unsavory character, you could be in a lot of trouble. In a lot of countries, people have even reported the loss of important data because along with their ID card, they also decided to include their USB in the home-made ID strap dangling from their necks. As such, when the home-made ID strap broke, both their ID and their USB fell into the hands of a complete stranger who, most often than not, no longer bothered to return such possessions. All this could have been avoided if only a better item was used to keep ID cards and USB drives safe when worn around the neck, and until people realize that they face a very harmful risk each and every day whenever they choose to wear cheap ID straps to work, more and more of these unfortunate event will continue to take place.

In the end, the choice of what to use in order to secure an ID card around the neck is a personal choice that each person must make. Normal ID straps made out of items that can be found at home are the cheapest way to secure your ID. Lanyards, on the other hand, might be more expensive because they are made of better quality materials, but at the end of the day, they are also more durable and safer.
