They hold the keys to our house, our car, our motorbike, the mobility scooter, and heck even that yacht in the South of France. And various valuable belongings. They live in handbags and pockets. They dangle from belts, or hands. Barely noticeable sometimes but always present, many aspects of daily living are held together by this small metal item, the keyring. The keyring has been around for centuries. It followed soon after the key, another equally old and significant symbol. Keys were used as early as four thousand years ago, by the ancient Egyptians, and symbolised power.
Keyrings apparently gained fame as a fashion statement in ancient Rome. In those times, the wealthy elite wore copious and excessive amounts of gems and jewels. Romans of old believed in wearing as much as possible as a way of showing their superiority over the less financially fortunate. They were status driven and not prone to modesty until that is, crime came to town, and thieves began a reign of robbery. Now the elite were required to keep their jewellery under lock and key when not wearing their finery. So began the trend of locking away jewellery in a chest. But who would look after the key? The solution was found in the simple but effective keyring, upon which to hang the keys.
The desire to flaunt was still prevalent though and this is where the keyring came in as a fashion statement. For, to wear a keyring, was to tell one and all that being merely in possession of the keyring, the holder could have untold wealth. So much wealth in fact, that it had to be locked up. The togas worn by many Romans unfortunately had no pockets, so the best way to keep small objects from getting lost were to wear them on one's person. Owners began to don keyrings, not only to secure their valuables but ostentatiously to show others that they had wealth worth locking up. Whether for pragmatic or illusory purposes, they became very popular indeed.
Keyrings have evolved over time to have other uses and designs. The simplest design of the keyring is a double loop, with two ends on opposite sides. Here, the user will be able to insert or remove his keys securely without fear of losing them. Other designs involve adding a smaller jointed contraption which releases the keys instead of slipping them into the coil. Custom keyrings are normally used not just to hold keys but also to hold other smaller items, such as key chains, key fobs, IDs or security tags.
Keyrings still continue to evolve today. More recently, they have been made as carabiners. The carabiner is a more advanced type of keyring, mostly used by professional mountain climbers to secure the ropes they are suspended from. Due to its strength, its use has been extended to include holding keys and valuables together. This is a more specialised and larger form of key holders.

Custom keyrings are an efficient way of ensuring the client's brand is at the foremost of people's minds. They have been a main component of marketing toolkits for years. They are hard-hitting, without breaking the bank, and ordering bulk custom keyrings is a good way of presenting a thank you present, a subtle marketing gift, or a special launch memento.
As stated, the most common form of the keyring is a single piece of metal in a 'double loop'. Either end of the loop can be pried open to allow a key to be inserted and slid along the spiral until it becomes wholly engaged onto the ring. But there are other forms of rings such as a single loop of metal or plastic with a mechanism to open and securely close the loop. There are electronic keyrings which are prevalent, but souvenir custom made keyrings are said to be one of the most popular keyrings that sell. These usually represent a particular occasion, trip or a location that a person visited. Some collections are small enough that the collector can place all of their keyrings on a bigger standard keyring. Some larger collections can be stored and displayed on cork boards, tool racks, in display cases, hung on walls, or even displayed on Christmas trees. Some collections are large enough that entire rooms have to be dedicated to the collection.
Not too far off from the days of ancient Rome, when you think about it, designer labels have got in on the act and have created a way of making specially made key rings. The wealthy, or those pretending to be, can show off these creations and quietly but not subtly tell the onlooker that they are wealthy. Shapes such as hearts, apples, logos, or engravings can be found. These keyrings are available for customers and fans to have in their attire. There is the added benefit of not only enabling the clients to feel trendy but the designers get the bonus of knowing that their brand is being showcased for free.
At The Pin Factory’s custom made metal keyrings, can be made in dozens of different metal finishes and their branding options are endless. We do digital print epoxy dome keyrings which are designed to last for years with the hard epoxy coating. Impressive full colour print of the logo, photographic images and gradient designs can be brilliantly reproduced underneath the coating. These badges have a brilliant, smooth finish and a slightly raised bevel edge. Print colours are vivacious and really stand out. This style of lapel pins are very cost effective, making them suitable for any organisation.
Another design we have are the moulded and polished keyrings (no enamel). This style of customisation features a simple mould of the customer's design. The design's raised sections are sandblasted which creates a contrasting finish. This brings the logo or emblem out of the background metal. These outstanding results will last for decades, due to the fact they do not have enamel ink filling or any print to wear off. In that state they remain in pristine condition for longer.
The Pin Factory also offers screen print epoxy dome keyrings. Screen print is the printing of up to five colours. These keyrings have a brilliant, smooth finish and a slightly raised bevel edge. The print colours are vibrant and this style of custom printed keyrings is also very affordable. Colours are matched to the Pantone standard. The Pantone standard is a defined colour chart that gives the exact colours regardless of computer screen or resolution which varies from type to type of media process. When customers refer to this standard they can be one hundred percent guaranteed that the colour they are choosing will match exactly the one they have in mind. The Pantone matching system, otherwise known as PMS is a proprietary colour space used in a variety of industries but predominantly in printing. By standardising the colours, different manufacturers in various locations can all refer to the Pantone system without having to make direct contact with one another to ensure that the colours precisely match.
One of our most popular styles of metal finish is the raised enamel ink filled keyring. A brilliant effect, it is a mould of the client's design into the shape of the keyring. These custom shaped keyrings design sections are then filled with colour matched enamel to create a vibrant, extremely long lasting and durable finish. The difference between raised enamel and flat enamel is that these badges have an almost 3d look, with the raised section polished or sandblasted to create a more defined finish.
Custom logo keyrings are not the only product we create. We can also do button badges, dog tags, enamel ink filled medals, raised and polished medals, commemorative coins, plain etched medals, and epoxy dome medals.
We specialise in a wide range of customised and bespoke manufactured lapel pins. With all kind of options including enamel pins, epoxy dome finish, custom shapes and sizes all with low minimum order quantities. We also do special personalised wearable items such as corporate cuff links, custom branded tie clips and bars, and custom belt buckles. For the fun and thirsty at heart we create items such as bespoke bottle openers, branded beer coasters and custom fridge magnets.
Our trolley coin designs are extensive and involve various types of keyrings as attachments. All of our items can be customised which is great for brand awareness. There is a simple approach to coin customisation and custom promotional keyrings and that is the stamped enamel-filled coins which contrast the sheen of polished metal with the logo. Photo-etched enamel trolley coins adds more colour, while the screen printed epoxy dome coatings allow for even more detail, which has proved to be a popular choice. The coatings include a silk-screened image that is protected by a resilient layer of acrylic and is permanently fastened to the token.
Meanwhile, the full colour epoxy dome printing allows just about any branding to be accurately reproduced, even at small scales. The durable acrylic epoxy ensures that the image will remain protected and therefore be long lasting.
Last but not least, the great duo, the trolley coin and keyring. The keyring itself can be customised according to brand or aesthetic aspirations, perfect for people looking for customised keyrings. There are a variety of stunning, durable styles and finishes. The clip style keyrings allow the coin to be removed from an integrated snap hook whenever it is needed. Once the trolley has been returned, the token can be released and snapped back onto the keyring with ease. For the multitasking shoppers, the holder-equipped keyring allows the coin to be easily slid out or back in as needed with only one hand free required. A popular style among companies is the two sided coin key ring. They fulfil a double task with each side of the included token mimicking a coin of a different denomination. This in turn opens up more space for branding.
