Silkscreen printing and dye-sublimated printing are two kinds of printing techniques. But the final results are the same: adding the graphics on the surface of the lanyards. Silkscreen means attaching the graphics with ink by using the silk screen to the lanyards along with strong pressure.

Generally speaking, the awesome lanyards used by dye-sublimated printing process are available for all kinds of graphics. But the silkscreen printing lanyards will be limited by color. If the order is small, we suggest you choose the silkscreen printing lanyards. Larger order should choose dye-sublimated lanyards. It’s ok to make dye-sublimated lanyards and then add some information by using another silkscreen printing process. These two printing processes can combine together, but the production time will be longer and the cost will be higher.

The logos cannot be seen clearly if placed too close. We suggest you take a look at There are lots of good lanyards for reference. Don’t worry about it. We have what suits youthe best.
