Price List & How to Order Custom Braided Lanyards

I custom braid lanyards to specifications in each order, and therefore, I require payment  prior to production.   For more discussion of my terms, please read  NOTE  below and Frequently Asked Questions.   The types of lanyards I offer are listed on the menu above, and each name contains a link to a page with a description and pictures of that lanyard type along with options and accessories..    Personalize your choice by  specifying length measurements, color,  and options.    Prices of lanyards, options, and accessories listed below are not open to negotiation. 

Please note:   I do not sell accessories as separate items.  I only make and or sell accessories as items within an order for a lanyard I am making for you or for a lanyard that I have made (as per my records).  If you were given a lanyard that I made and want to purchase accessories for it, provide the name of the person who ordered the lanyard from me and gave it to you.

FACT:  Regardless of how many and what kinds of discussions we have had about what you want, etc., I do not consider that you have  placed and confirmed an order with me until you have paid by check or money order or until you have given me a valid credit card number and expiration date.

Place your order by telephone, regular mail, or email to  I need to know
(1) Your name, shipping address, email address, and telephone number;
(2) The type of lanyard (or other product) you want and specifications such as length, color, and accessories;
(3)  How you will pay for the lanyard (or other product).

I custom braid lanyards as per each order. Rather than  buying a standard, stock item lanyard from me, you are asking me to braid a lanyard specifically for you, a custom braided lanyard.  Therefore, I encourage, expect, and depend on you to make informed, specific choices (regarding length, color, and accessories, etc.) and communicate them clearly in your order. If you do not, I will conclude that you want and will be satisfied with "standard" and  or "normal" as described in Options.  At my option, I may charge for any requested alterations arising from your failure to specify other than "normal" or from your dissatisfaction with specifications you made in your order.    Appearance (color, shade, texture, etc.) of leather in your lanyard may vary from what is shown in pictures on these web pages (and from what you see on your screen).  Samples of lace are available for true color determination.

Since your lanyard will be custom braided specifically for you, I expect you to pay or commit to pay the price I quote before I accept your order and add it to my worksheet. 

Prices quoted for a specific order may vary upward from base prices on these web pages. Estimated and actual delivery times will vary to fit unique items/requests and my changing circumstances.  I  reserve the right to change my posted prices at will (e.g.,  because my suppliers change their prices).  Because life is too short to braid even one lanyard with teeth clenched,  I reserve the right to decline (refuse) any order request, and most emphatically, I reserve the right to cancel any order if or when I deem that appropriate.   

My distinctive designs and color schemes are protected as works of art by US Copyright Law.  Duplicating them  is plagiarism.   I will aggressively defend what is mine. The Copyright Law has teeth. 

Now, by disclosing my positions on these points (and posting my Privacy Policy, immediately below on this page),  I have followed my attorney's advice; and by placing an order, you are accepting my terms, so let's get on with the good stuff!  I will enjoy making a lanyard for you, and I hope that you will enjoy wearing it in good health for many splendid seasons!

Privacy Policy:   I will use your information to communicate with you and to deliver your lanyard order to you and for no other  purpose.  I have not made and will not make order information (names, shipping addresses, phone numbers and email addresses) available for use by any third party. Credit card numbers are neither stored electronically nor retained in long term hardcopy records.  I appreciate the opportunity to make lanyards for you, and I try very hard to treat you my customers as I would expect to be treated!    Thanks!  Larry Smith
