Custom Made PVC Keyrings are one of our favourite items here at Studio Dais. They are affordable, durable and pack an incredible punch visually. Also known as silicone rubber keyrings, rubbery keychains and 3D molded keyrings. We wanted to teach you a little bit about them, and why you should be considering them for your next marketing push this year!
What Are Soft PVC Keyrings Made From?
PVC stands for polyvinyl-chloride, and is one of the most widely used thermoplastic polymers in the world (Polymers are materials made of long, repeating chains of molecules such as proteins, rubber and even wood, basically it’s just smaller parts that make bigger parts). Our PVC Rubber / Vinyl keyrings are made to environmental standards ISO 14001 with zero waste.
PVC Is Safe For Us And For The Environment!
There are no health dangers with our PVC products that you need to worry about. PVC is not plastic! Plastic feels cheap and well, ‘plasticky’, and we don’t do cheap here! PVC Keychains feel supremely high quality and have a smooth but satin feel to them. This tactile nature gives them a sense of sophistication that is hard to find in other cheaper keyring alternatives! Don’t skimp on price. Cheaper is definitely not better! PVC rubber keychains are soft, light and flexible, perfect for carrying around in pockets or bags all day. They have a charming and ethereal feel to them, and make great fidget toys on their own!
A Few PVC Rubber Promotional Product Variations
Before we explore ‘Rubbery Keyrings’, let’s first just clarify that our PVC keyrings are a variation of our other promotional PVC products. We also make PVC Rubber Badges, Viny Toy Figures as well as PVC patches and even PVC Coins. Studio Dais can adapt your designs to any of these other products in any way you see fit. We have a team of 4 dedicated and experienced designers who can help you navigate the complex world of promotional merchandise. Just get in touch with us to get started!
Custom Made Soft PVC Keyrings Are Affordable!
Our soft PVC keychains have an awesome and proven ROI (return on investment) and that makes them one of our most affordable customisable promotional merchandise products we have on offer. They are bright, fun and colourful and who doesn’t want a bit of that in their life after the crazy year we have had recently? They are also very durable and versatile, near impossible to break and will therefor last an incredibly long time. Let’s take a look at the prices now. Below is a screen grab from our PVC Keychain product page (most of our products have a live price feature so you can get a quote instantly (go have a play).
The smallest size is 30mm to 40mm (longest side). You don’t want to go smaller than this with PVC Vinyl Keyrings. The price is a respectable £222 for 100 pieces, or £2.22 each. This will allow you up to 7 bright colours and a jump split ring for free.
If you wanted 200 of the same keychains, the price would be £288, or £1.44 each. Once the master mold has been made, we can double your quantities without doubling the price. The more you buy the cheaper per piece you will get. 1000 rubber keyrings would be £828, or £0.82p each. 5000? Get in touch to find out more!
Economies Of Scale Price Chart
Below you can see the chart very simply explains how the economies of scale works. With the above quantities example, if you wanted just one keyring, you would be paying maybe £200. If you wanted 100 keyrings you would be paying £222. As you increase your output you decrease the price. We find the sweet spot is around 100pc to get the best price vs quantity ratio.

Outdoor Adventure Clothing Companies
PVC Keychains as we have mentioned are durable and of course waterproof. They are great for companies like Patagonia who have customers exposed to the elements all day. And ‘outdoorsy’ types will naturally be drawn to more bespoke durable products. As the keychains would either be used on keys in bags or on the bags themselves to show support for their favourite outdoor company. The PVC keychain is essentially just a badge with a keychain loop, so if you are after PVC Badges or Patches, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Charity, Fundraisers, NGO, Government Organisations And Local Councils
We suggest Vinyl PVC products for the above mentioned due to the cheaper costs involved in manufacturing of our PVC products. We know they are constantly on budget reviews and keeping costs down is an integral part of their strategy. The keyrings can be given out to attendees at trade shows, local village / town events, awareness initiatives and corporate fundraisers.
Fashion Brands And New Start Up Businesses

Rubber PVC Keyring / Keychain Design Considerations
When designing for rubber PVC Keyrings, your designs or ideas can be more complex than if you were designing for our Soft or Hard Enamel Pin Badges, but we still need to adhere to some basic vector art principles to ensure flawless production stages.
If you are using Illustrator or Photoshop, your minimum line weight should be 0.4mm, this will ensure we get that clean PVC Keychain look, any thinner and colours will not be boldly separated. If you just have a rough sketch on the back of a napkin, we can also work from that too! Just send it in via email or via the upload artwork box when you place your order online.
