Frequently Asked Questions:

What kind of design can I put on a FestFork Lanyard? The short answer is, any design that fits on a lanyard! Our team will evaluate your art and use the best production method to match your art. Our most common production methods are dye sublimation, which allows for full color and full coverage, and step/repeat heat transfers, which are great for single-color designs with small text and fine lines.

What colors are available? Your lanyards are either dye sublimated with your design or sublimated and then printed. Most solid coated PMS colors can be close matched. Please specify PMS colors when sending your art. Forks and hardware are available with either a gold or silver electroplated finish.

What kind of art files can I send? Our team prefers vector art, sent in a PDF, EPS, or AI file, with all fonts converted to curves/outlines and all layers flattened. If you do not have print-ready art, no worries! Your order includes up to 1 hour of graphics design time to clean up and prepare your art for print. Additional creative design time will be quoted at an hourly rate and billed separately from your order.

Do you have a template I can use? Absolutely – you can download print templates for our two lanyard sizes here. .5″ Width Lanyard Template | 346-381-4741
