Which material to choose?
There is three core materials we use to manufacture our ribbon. Dye sublimation polyester, Screen printed rib polyester, and the classic ribbon (most popular). The latter can be printed full color or solid block color to suit your branding requirements. And if you require a special color we can pantone dye the material to any specification. Simply visit our pantone color chart to see available dyes.

Use it throughout the event for more exposure, and it will pay off in the long run.
A business finds they have several options when it comes to material for their ribbon. Lanyards USA uses three core materials to manufacture these products. In addition, the material color can be altered using Pantone dye to ensure it meets the client's specifications.
- Dye sublimation polyester ribbon makes use of special dyes that are sensitive to heat to print any image on the ribbon. The desired image is placed on special transfer paper, which is then put into a heat press with the pre-cut ribbon. Once the heating cycle has completed, the image has been transferred to the ribbon and been incorporated into the material. The user can't feel the dyes when he or she runs their hands over the ribbon.
- Screen printed rib polyester ribbon is created using a wet ink that is applied through a screen. This type of ribbon is extremely durable and can be washed as needed, making it the ideal choice for any ribbon that will see a lot of use.
- Classic ribbon is the most popular choice among the ribbons offered thanks to its versatility.
Obtaining The Perfect Ribbon
Once a ribbon material is selected, the company needs to determine what to include on it. Branding and print quality are keys at this stage, thus we ask that customers provide their logo in a high-resolution format. If this isn't possible for any reason, the client needs to let us know so we can prep the logo before printing. Be aware that this does add to the turnaround time, thus it's best to provide an AI, EPS, PDF or CDR of the logo. In addition, we can accept vectorized SVG files. Furthermore, we ask that the client supply as much information as possible, including the website, as this allows our graphic team to get a feel for the company.
Customers can rest assured they will get the perfect ribbon. Before production begins on any item, the graphic team creates a sample that is then sent to the client for approval. Only when this approval has been obtained will the item actually be produced and sent.
Many companies operate on a deadline when planning an event. We understand this and provide a short turnaround time on all orders. To facilitate this, we recommend customers choose from items we have in stock, as this reduces the turnaround time by three days because there is no drying time to add to the process. Furthermore, orders that are needed quickly should consist of only one or two colors, as this reduces the print time and print runs. When placing an order, don't hesitate to ask for other ways to reduce production time. We'll be happy to provide this information once we have the order details in hand.
