Tips on designing the perfect customised lanyard for your event

Unknown to many of us, the simple act of slinging a lanyard over your neck can actually do a great deal for your brand. Our torso is one of the most prominent parts of our entire body and displaying a lanyard with your brand’s name engraved in bold across it can actually help increase your brand exposure. At SWITTS, we provide several options for you to customise your lanyards and transform it into the perfect corporate gift for your clients.

Material of the Lanyard

We have several different materials which you can choose from for your lanyard. This includes cotton, tubular, polyester and woven. The polyester lanyard is the most popular material and is suitable for most events due to its strength and ability to withstand wear and tear resulting from daily use. It also dries very easily and does not shrink when exposed to moisture. The tubular lanyards are made from tube-stitched polyester, similar to that of a shoelace. Due to its light weight and comfort, this material is especially popular amongst sports enthusiasts. This would be a prime choice if you are faced with a limited budget as it offers outstanding performance at an affordable price. However, if you do have another material in mind, do let us know and we will customise it according to your needs!

Attachment of the Lanyard

There are several attachments of the lanyard which you can choose from, depending on your needs. These include a safety breakaway clip, oval chip, lobster clip, crocodile chip and a double crocodile chip. A breakaway clip offers an enhanced safety option, allowing the lanyard to automatically disconnect when placed under pressure. This eliminates the chances of choking occurring. On the other hand, other attachments such as the oval clip and the crocodile clip provide a very firm support for your attached name cards, ensuring that they do not fall off even when engaging in more rigorous activities.

Imprints on the Lanyard

We also have a range of unique imprints available if you’d like to get customised lanyards in Singapore. You can choose to engrave your company’s brand onto the lanyards along with any design or theme specifications which you may prefer. The imprints on our lanyards can differ from affordable one-coloured designs to detailed multi-coloured dye-sublimation imprints. If you have a certain design in mind, do let us know and our experienced designers can help transform these ideas into reality!

Our vision at  SWITTS has always been to strive to provide you with customised corporate gifts of the finest quality in Singapore. Feel free to drop us an email or a text message to find out more about our customised lanyards or any of our customised corporate gifts.

Here is our list of our top 6 eco-friendly corporate gift ideas

With the ever increasing number of environmental advocates, there has been a shift in the trend towards the conservation of our natural environment. Fret not if you are pondering over what corporate gifts to get. We have compiled a list of the top few eco-friendly corporate gifts which you could proudly present to both your existing as well as potential clients.

  1. Foldable Metal Straw

A very simple but effective way to help reduce the amount of plastic you use would be to switch over to metal straws instead. These straws can be washed after each use, making them reusable. In addition, unlike ordinary metal straws, these ones are foldable and can be conveniently packed into a small box and carried around. We also offer laser engraving/printing services on the straws for you to provide a more personalised touch to your corporate gifts!

  • Felt Folders

These folders are made using felt, which is a form of natural fiber derived from wool. The use of such a textile provides it with a soft and natural feel without compromising on durability. These folders can easily hold a laptop, documents or small objects.

  • Rice Husk Lunch Box

Our lunch boxes are made up of rice husk fiber which is completely chemical-free, making it eco-friendly. There are two tiers within each box, which enables you to easily separate different types of food from one another without worrying about them being mixed up with one another when transporting your food around.

  • Rice Husk Cup

Similar to the lunch boxes, these cups are also environmentally-friendly since they are made using rice husks. They can store both hot as well as cold drinks. However, unlike regular porcelain cups which are extremely brittle, theses cups will not break when dropped, saving you any potential mess that could occur.

  • Canvas Bag

Canvas Bags are made from cotton which is a natural fiber coming from the cotton plant. It is also recyclable and is a renewable resource, making it environmentally friendly. Despite this, its plain cotton weave makes it durable and can easily last you for years. Additionally, canvas is a washable material and its fabric cannot be easily damaged. This material also allows for easy printing and engraving of words on it.

  • Eco Friendly Pen

These pens come in a wide assortment of bright colours and are made using recycled paper. This ensures that no additional waste is generated from the manufacture of such pens. They are easily customisable based on your needs and would make the perfect corporate gift for your clients!

In addition to the items listed above, we also have a huge range of other customisable corporate gifts which you can select from in Singapore. Simply visit our website https://switts.com.sg , select the corporate gift which you desire and contact us via whatsapp to place your order!

How your business could actually benefit by providing GWPs

If you still do not know what a GWP stands for, it actually refers to a Gift with Purchase. This usually arrives in the form of a complimentary or discounted gift that is given when someone purchases one or more products. Many companies/brands provide GWPs to their customers which either serves as a token of appreciation or to encourage sales. However, the benefit which a GWP can confer actually goes far beyond that.

Drive sales/purchase

For one, a GWP would definitely provide an added incentive for customers to increase their spending in order to meet the minimum purchase criteria and qualify for the complimentary gift. This in turns leads to an increase in the store or brand’s average sale. GWPs can also serve as a way to increase the engagement with the customer. After establishing a more personal connection with the customer, GWPs can be used to provide an added level of personalisation to the customer. For example, a GWP can be carefully selected based on the wants of the customers and provide the customer with an even greater purchase value. In addition, a GWP can also help create increased brand awareness amongst potential customers. For example, a skincare brand which offers a technological product as a GWP could help create awareness for its brand when its customers utilise the GWP and other consumers become exposed to the skincare brand as well.

Motivate instant purchase

GWPs can also serve to increase the conversion rate of customers. By providing a deadline, for the distribution of GWPs, this provides a shorter window of opportunity to customers and motivates them to buy now rather than wait. With this increase in purchase intent, it may also make it easier for your company to cross-sell other products or services to these motivated customers.

Foster stronger ties

Lastly, GWPs can be used to foster a stronger relationship with your top-tier customers. For example by creating a personalised corporate gift you could schedule a visit with one of these customers and leverage on this gift to recommend your latest product or service to them. This personalised “shopping experience” felt by the customer can in turn lead to purchase and a stronger loyalty to your brand.

As can be seen, there are numerous performance benefits which your business can reap from the offering of a GWP to your customers. In Singapore, there are several corporate gift companies which can help provide you with the perfect gift to meet your organisational goals. At SWITTs Singapore, we promise to provide you with customised corporate gifts for your customers which would also meet your business requirements.
