Quality lanyards manufactured in the UK

UK Lanyard Makers is a UK based manufacturer of lanyards, fabric wristbands, fabric keyfobs (K’dangles), snoods, microfibre cloths and printed ribbon. We are a trade only supplier and do not supply end users. If you are not a distributor and would like to buy our products, we will be happy to put you in contact with one of our distributors. Being a UK manufacturer speed and turnaround times are key to our business. We can despatch orders as quickly as next day on an express service. Our standard turnaround is 5 days.

We use a full colour, dye sublimation process to brand all of our products. All our manufacturing takes place in-house. We have a production capacity of over 5,000 lanyards a day and make over 1 million lanyards per year!

While lanyards are the main item that we make we can also produce branded medal ribbons. If you or your client were to provide us with medals these can be sewn on, or attached, to our UK made branded ribbons. Our full colour process means that there are very few limitations to the branding process. Whether you require a one colour print, a close Pantone match to a CMYK equivalent, rainbow or gradient we can do it. The ribbon we use is a flat smooth polyester with a satin finish. This will give your medal ribbons a premium look and feel.

Guy and Phil deal with the sales side of the business. Phil is one of the directors and has been manufacturing lanyards in the UK for over 10 years and has lots of experience.

The years of experience have enabled us to provide rapid artwork proofs and quotations which helps the company run smoothly.

The environment and being as eco-friendly as possible is really important to us. All our raw materials come to the UK via sea or rail freight from China. These methods of freight produce considerably less CO2 than flying goods in from the Far East. We will be switching all our lanyard, medal ribbon, wristband and keyfob (K’dangle) production over to recycled polyester (RPET) ribbon later this year. This is to further reduce our CO2 emissions.

The eco-friendly points don’t stop there! The dye sublimation inks used in the production process are water-based instead of solvent-based. The factory is partly powered by a 40kw solar array and it has a biomass heating system which helps keep us warm in winter! All the waste paper goes for recycling with our waste partner Chambers. They will convert our paper waste at their factory in Kent to make cardboard for boxes.

To help with the reduction of the carbon footprint of the goods once they leave us, they are shipped with DPD who have a carbon-neutral commitment, more information about this can be found on their website. We are active within our trade association the British Promotional Merchandise Association and their sustainability group to find ways that we can make our products more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

If you would like to find out more or have any questions about our products, please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you are a trade customer and are looking for some prices, we can provide quotes over the phone or via an email, whatever is easiest for you.

The kettle is always on so if you would like to come over and visit our factory you would be more than welcome.
