The modern times tend to be stressful on everyone. With all the advancements and the speeding up of everyone to catch their deadlines, business meetings, classes, employment opportunities, jobs, and almost anything that is currently being done by man today, people do not need to add to the problem of finding a way of keeping that pesky ID card on or around them at all times. Most people would simply just give up with trying to find a way to do that and stick the cards in their pockets, wallets, bags or other small and troublesome compartments instead. They, however, do not see that the answer was a simple piece of cloth or nylon that could be wrapped around the neck. Such is what these relatively well known things called ‘badge lanyards’ do.
Badge lanyards are generally the most ideal choice with regard to finding a means to attach an identification card to one’s body. They are very accessible and are very simple to put on. A simple over-the-head motion would set them around one’s head almost immediately without the fuss of finding another place or article of clothing to attach it to. More often than not, when getting ready for work in the morning, it would serve as less of a hassle to simply throw them on as compared to clipping or finding that shirt that has the name stuck on to it. It is clearly visible in most locations because of its unique shape, such that it could easily be spotted on top of a desk or a night table. The person would see it almost immediately in the morning and simply snatch it up, throw it on with that over-the-head motion and simply walk right out the door, and be ready to face the day.
Many people would not have guessed that simple items such as badge lanyards would be the answer to their problems. It is a small and almost unnoticeable struggle that unwittingly adds to a person’s daily stress. In actuality, the small few seconds that the badge lanyard saves when one is getting ready for work may be just the right amount to keep that person cool and collected at the end of a hard day’s work. That split second may not mean much on a daily basis, however, once taken in retrospect, those few seconds of life may be just the amount of stress to push someone over the edge and turn them into a scowling angry passenger that sits next to others on the bus ride home.
Tried and tested for many years, badge lanyards have been the trademark of schools all over the world. One could tell if the child is a student simply by locating the lanyard that is wrapped around the child’s neck. Often times, children, being young and playful, tend to roughhouse and get themselves into all sorts of dirty and sticky situations; however, the lanyard proves a sturdy and all around means to retain the ID card on or around the body. Even up to the collegiate level, lanyards serve as excellent time-saving items. Instead of bringing out the wallet and fiddling with the other ID’s, credit cards, licenses and cash, while wanting to simply enter the school or the workplace, the lanyard provides a quick access area that will immediately be seen by the establishments receptionist. All that is needed, should it not be clearly visible, is to raise it up with one hand and drop it again as soon as the receptionist sees it. These badge lanyards have stood the test of time and have proven to be effective, even with today’s fast paced society.
