Retractable embroidery Neck lanyards, also known as Woven Lanyard. If you want your custom lanyards to have an elegant, finished appearance, woven polyester lanyards are the best solution. Tough and durable, these lanyards are great for simple font style and simple logos and up to 2 weave colors, since more elaborate lettering will not be legible. Woven polyester lanyards weave your message or logo into the lanyard with thread through machine, using a process similar to embroidery. But woven is a relatively top grade process. The demand for cotton yarn is very high, the poor quality cotton yarn can't make the shape of the pattern.
