Frequently Asked Questions

Will my logo be suitable for print?

If you require a logo or other art work on your lanyard then ideally it should be set on a transparent background and submitted in an Adobe CS4 Illustrator or Photoshop file format, we can also use png or jpg images. All images should have an original 300dpi.

Please note. When you submit images to use, you must have the rights to reproduction of the images.

  • We shall not be required to print any matter which in its opinion is or may be of an illegal or libellous nature or an infringement of the proprietary or other rights or any third party.
  • The customer shall indemnify and hold We Print Gifts Ltd harmless against all claims, demands, costs, expenses (including but not limited to legal costs and disbursements), losses and damages arising from or suffered or incurred by reason of the work it is required to produce pursuant to a customer order being or alleged to be defamatory or in breach of any copyright or trade mark.

My desired font is not listed as a choice.

Not to worry! If you require a specific font that is not listed on our webpage please contact us and we may be able to locate the font in our wider selection offline. If we do not have the font at all you can send us it in a true type font format (TTF) but this will take 24 hours to register on our system before we can proceed with the order.

My desired lanyard colour is not an option.

We can colour your lanyard any colour that can be made up from the CMYK colour pallet. We do also have background designs or you could use our design service for that extra special lanyard.

Can you print a solid Pantone® / PMS colour?

We print CMYK and not solid colours. If you supply us with a Pantone® / PMS colour reference we strongly advise that you use the Pantone CP reference. This refers to a process colour rather than a solid one (A Pantone C reference). You can find these colour references here Pantone colour finder.

We will convert the PMS CP reference into CMYK using the appropriate percentages from Pantone® and aim to match it as close as possible within the tolerance of +/- 10% as stated in our T&C’s.

If you are setting artwork, please set the artwork using the Pantone® CP reference.

Please note. Certain colours can look very different on screen to how they look in print. Shades of burgundy, blue, purple and red are particularly difficult. We strongly advise that you print the proof of your design that is emailed to you before you approve it, as the printed version will give you a much better representation of the final product that any screen will.

How do I send my artwork to you?

You can upload the images via our website as you do your design, however if you would like to check it’s suitability please send your artwork to, once we have checked the artwork someone from our design department will contact you to let you know if it useable for lanyard printing.

Do you charge to prepare my art work?

We don’t charge to prepare artwork.

Can I attach keys to the trigger clip?

We would not recommend you add keys to the trigger clip, you should use the key ring option. Keys generally should not weigh any more than 100g.

Can you supply lanyards without a safety breakaway?

We are not able to supply lanyards without a safety breakaway. The safety breakaway is designed to stop strangulation, should the lanyard get trapped in machinery, lift doors, etc.

How is the personalised ribbon produced?

Once you have created your design using our online design tool, we will use this to create a continuous repeating pattern that will run your desired length of ribbon on both sides of the fabric. Using a dye sublimation print process, your design will then be printed onto our high-quality, satin finish, recycled polyester material.

Unlike screen printing or transfer techniques, this allows you to create a full colour design and allows you to colour match the ribbon to your brand colours giving you much more scope to be creative! If you require a specific colour please contact us with your PMS reference.

Your design is printed onto both sides of the fabric but is not aligned and print matched so that any text is readable on both sides. Due to the nature of the fabric and the print process your design may be slightly visible through the fabric. This is especially the case on larger areas of a light colour such as white.

As soon as we have received your approved artwork and payment your order will go straight into production. It is therefore important that if you notice any errors or wish to make any changes to your design, you notify us immediately. Unfortunately, once your order enters the batching stage we are unable to alter or cancel your order.
