Our organization requires that all volunteers wear name badges. The lanyards our volunteers were using were falling apart and very old. Our volunteers were very excited to get new lanyards! I specifically bought these lanyards for the the breakaway feature, although it does take a bit of umph to have them breakaway. I also appreciated the blank side for imprint to further identify our company's volunteers, along with the positive message of "...hands that serve, hearts that care". Although we've only been using them for about a month, they seem to hold up well.
