17 Best Lanyard Mockups + Free (Tested 2024)

lanyard mockups

Are you searching for the best free and premium lanyard mockups but somehow feel lost, not knowing where to find the right ones?

Not anymore.


This post covers:

We thought lanyards and ID card holders were old-school, not in fashion anymore.

Oh boy, were we wrong.

Events, festivals, forums, promo material, so many clients NEED lanyards for this and that reason.

Thus, we want to share with you our active collection of mockups to impress your clients and your audience.

Make everyone curious, starting with a mockup.


Best Lanyard Mockup Generators

These are for all who don’t want to use Photoshop to make mockups.

Note: Each mockup generator is only $7.95/template. But you can pick a monthly ($14.95/mo) or yearly ($89.69/yr) subscription and save extra money.

1. Man at work with a lanyard

Not too formal and not too casual – just right! That’s what you get with this particular mockup generator, creating your custom-made lanyard.

You treat yourself to an extremely speedy creation with just a few clicks. That’s awesome.

We like this one the most. But all the other ones below are GREAT, too.

Insert the lanyard design, change its color and you’re all set. There are options to add text and logo but that’s optional.

Hint: I found this awesome custom lanyards service if you want to go beyond creating mockups. They do a great job even if you need help with the design. Plus, there’s no min quantity (!).


2. Lanyard on a flat surface mockup

While we sure do prefer lanyard mockups with actual models, we also included several that feature just the item.

Here is a simple and minimal version that you can use for online stores, social media, anything.

But most importantly, impress your client with a realistic presentation they sure did not see coming.

You can edit the background and strap color by navigating to the convenient color picker. From then on, it’s ONLY a matter of importing your logo or special design (800 x 200px).


3. Lanyard mockup of a woman

This one came in exceptionally handy when working with an event organizer. We used their logo and changed the color to green to create a nice stand-out effect.

You can use this mockup for anything – it doesn’t need to be for an event. It’s just that it worked really well in our instance.

The whole EXPERIENCE will be a piece of cake for everyone.

Even if you are no designer but have the logo ready – a realistic presentation is just around the corner!


4. Minimal lanyard mockup (customizable background)

Keeping things minimal and simple is what we are big fans of. It doesn’t always work, but it does in most cases.

The same applies to lanyard mockups. If you want to exhibit your design or logo idea exclusively, this one will do you well.

You can also alter the background color to make the design POP even more.

Heck, you can even make it transparent if you’d like to use a custom backdrop for your special client.


5. Lanyard mockup of a relaxed office woman

This is a female edition of the first lanyard mockup. You can easily achieve the casual office VIBE that everyone can relate to.

Make your lanyard design shine in crowded social news feeds with confidence.

You can craft as many variations as possible, even before creating a free account.

Specialty: You can also change the book cover color if you want, so it goes along with the matching lanyard.


6. Office woman with a lanyard mockup generator

And now the more formal version, for all the professionals, businesses, offices, you name it! This one is very versatile due to the lady’s white shirt since it fits any lanyard color and design style.

Make an ID holder strap to promote any brand, event, or other special occasion. You can now do this quickly, saving time and the hassle of working with photo editing software.

You can do it – NO experience with mockups is necessary!

Also, don’t miss adding some text, a call-to-action, even a logo in the corner of the template.


7. Close-up lanyard mockup (office style!)

A close-up shot is perfect if you’d like to pay more attention to the design.

After all, you’re pretty limited with space. Plus, an image of a lanyard from too far may not really show what’s on it.

However, everyone will know exactly what’s up with this particular lanyard mockup.

(And you can test it out without spending a single penny. Only once you are OK with your creation.)


8. Smiling dude with a lanyard mockup

College gatherings, sports events, young entrepreneur forums, whatever – here’s a lanyard template that covers them all and then some.

Heck, you can even use it for a music event’s VIP guests and press. The options are VERY many – just approach it with an open mind.

The only thing missing is the option to change the color of the T-shirt. (But you can also check our tutorial on how to make a T-shirt mockup without Photoshop.)

Luckily it’s white, so it works with anything without causing any distractions.

How To Easily Create A Lanyard Mockup (In 5 Steps)

One of the easiest, quickest and, at the same time, MY FAV ways of creating a lanyard mockup is using an online generator.

Placeit is still my preferred platform after working on 100s of projects.

And these are the five simple steps to create your custom lanyard presentation:

  1. Head over to Placeit and type in the search bar “lanyard.” Or even better, visit this link to save yourself time.
  2. Pick the template you like and click on it.
  3. The first thing I always do is insert my design or logo. You do this by clicking the Insert Image button. (You can upload it from your device or your downloads.)
  4. The next step is customizing the background, the lanyard color and adding other details, like extra text and graphics.
  5. You’re DONE! Click Download and use your lanyard mockup anywhere you want.

But even if you use a PSD, it’s quick. Import it to Photoshop and attach your design via the smart object layer.

Then, you can nagivate other layers to perform as many or as few customization tweaks as you want.

Save, download, and that’s it!
