A blog spot on pop culture way back in 2009 revealed the timeless use of such bracelets though it was associated in various terms. The blog cited that people have literally made use of these rubbers to bind broccoli and asparagus in the market to be their so-called bracelets. It did not last long though because it gets stuck in one’s hair, arm and it breaks easily. Then in early 90s rubber bracelet once again emerged with the pop culture among rock bands, a few NBA players, and some institutions but due to the negative connotation associated to it (such as “sex bands”), it disappeared in the market as parents called for the eradication of said products. This identity though of rubber bracelets was found out as a mere urban legend and such has nothing to do with the colors associated to it as well.

And to continue, in the later part of 1990s NIKE introduced this product once more,rebranding them as ballers – which are given to their players for NBA and was customized with the team’s color. As ballers, only a few sports enthusiasts can afford it until it re-emerged again as “statement bands” with a few saying like “I love you and Livestrong.” In relation to such ballers, people may have recalled Lebron James who fondly used this in and out of the court whereas “the statement band” was associated with Lance Armstrong when he kicked off cancer awareness. Since then, the evolution of bracelets was unstoppable especially when various charitable organizations followed after Armstrong’s lead. Thus, in 2004 up to the present, bracelets are widely circulated and in demand.

Badge Lanyards: Business Identity In The Workplace

Badge lanyards are simple and effective ways of attaching an identification card to and around one’s body. The simple significance of the lanyard is to show the card clearly and visibly. This serves as a distinction characteristic for many people within a workplace or school wherein everyone is likely to be wearing the same or at least similar articles of clothing on a daily basis. This is required by most establishments with regard to their employees, faculty, students and the likes of almost everyone but the customer (on occasion, even customers are asked to wear an identification card when entering specific premises or structures).

Many employers, however, find these things to be rather unattractive objects that seem to add to the dullness of the uniform that each employee is already wearing. The simple string may generally be of a single color that may or may not match the uniform. The card grip usually may a simple plastic casing for the card or literally just a clip, especially when the identification card already has a slot where the grip could be attached to. Many find them too simple, plain, or they may even think that, since their employees are office workers, it would end up making them look like students instead.

Badge Lanyards

There are, however, many other ways to spice up an employee’s look, despite having the classic badge lanyard attached to their necks. Customized lanyards are now very popular among big establishments and are normally distributed to employees. They are also occasionally given even to the customers as a means of advertising the business or product that is noted on the customized lanyard.

Badge lanyards can be customized or even themed by the office or establishment.

This actually aids in the process of identification simply because people notice the lanyard before they actually look down towards the identification card. It is a simple almost unnoticeable thing; however, first impressions do really matter in the world of business and even at times in the world of schooling and studies. A person who wears badge lanyards lets them know that they work in this particular grocery store would normally be mistaken for working elsewhere without looking directly at the person’s ID card.

It generally may seem like an uninteresting thing to note or think about; however, it may help in actually performing the job better. First impressions really make a big difference with regards to how the person treats another; hence these simple and almost un-notable differences that can be seen on a person’s attire actually throw in a big impact on other people’s perception. The eyes are the most utilized sensory organ in today’s technological society; hence what appeals to the eyes will generally appeal to other people, the customers in particular. The message from the eyes to the brain elicits responses, and these responses can be affected by simply going to the source, and adjusting the sensory input in order to elicit a positive response.

It is clear and well defined, when a person wears badge lanyards from the employers, that the person works in the establishment, hence the customers will easily be able to distinguish this, without even looking at the ID card that is normally attached to the lanyard. They would be able to ask the employee and eventually strike up enough to purchase something from the store. Many people don’t bother themselves with the name of the employee; however, they are very picky with the name of the business. Badge lanyards are a very simple, cheap, and effective way to advertise and present a business identity to customers and competitors alike.
