Dye Sublimation Lanyards (Full Colour Lanyards)

Is your logo very detailed, or does it need to be near-photo quality? If so, our dye sublimation lanyards may just be the lanyard type for you. They’re the highest quality lanyard available from Lanyards Direct. Read on to find out the features and benefits of these lanyards.

Complex, high quality logos

Dye sublimation is a special printing technique that uses cutting-edge heat transfer technology. The result? Flawless, detailed logos that are almost picture quality. This technique is perfect for you if your logo is on the complex side, for example if it involves several colours or is very detailed. The heat transfer method makes printing your logo easy, and produces beautiful results, every time.

A superior no-flake finish

These lanyards come with a wonderful satin finish that’s superior quality. This means your logo will never flake, crack or fade. Put simply, your logo looks great and stays put for as long as you need it.

Professional, high quality look and feel

Dye sub lanyards come with a texture and finish that is sure to impress clients and prospective customers. This makes them excellent gifts or freebies for your next event or conference.

Durable and reliable

Our dye sublimation lanyards don’t just look pretty. They also perform well under pressure due to their high quality fabric. They’re designed to be durable and long-lasting, meaning they can withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight and even repeated washes.

Large quantities

We provide dye sublimation lanyards in quantities of 100 or more and we’ll even produce a mock up so that you’re completely happy before the production process begins. Usually your highquality lanyards can be produced and ready to use within a week of placing your order.
