The best custom lanyards are not just about design and creativity. You may have a wonderfully-designed lanyard, but when push comes to shove, it should also last for a long time.
Some companies know that lanyards are not just identification card laces: they are partners of its users in everyday life.
But there is no denying lanyards are beautiful. They are great for advertising because the graphics and logos printing companies can have on lanyards are usually large and exquisite.

Some usually throw in free hardware with the lanyards. Hardware is commonly, but limited to the following: hooks, retractable cords, water bottle holders, clips, and rings. They do not hamper the view of the card attached to the lace and make accessing important and small item easier.
Sometimes people forego the actual design process in favor of function instead. A lot of people prefer blank ones over custom lanyards, especially when there is a cause involved (sicknesses, anniversaries, and birthdays). Clients usually use these lanyards as keys to their event in favor of commonly given pieces of clothing, like bangles and colored shirts.But more commonly, people who order custom lanyards want their products to look and feel special.

Lanyards are built differently. The materials are different and the methods of making them vary. But when it comes to hardware and attachments, companies pull out all the stops in ensuring things are in working order.
Some companies throw in freebies together with their lanyards. Those who do custom lanyards would most probably base the hardware they would give to your needs.
But clients still have free rein on what they want to get. It is a nice gesture to see a company that makes an effort to satisfy their client/s with their laces.
The hardware is usually the one that makes lanyards more durable, a different breed of multi-use tool. One can have a j-hook to hold his phone or a set of keys. Or a quick release buckle for commuters so when they get in a tight pickle, they can handle the situation with more finesse than usual.
