What is RFID? Basic Terms and FAQ

RFID Inlay and Tags: Questions and Answers

The following is a list of things to consider and determine so that we can build the perfect RFID solution for you.

LABEL DIMENSIONS

What size label does your customer need?

  • Label width & length – please ask what the min & max size your customer needs, along with their ideal size. We may need to alter size a bit depending on the inlay that best fits your customer’s application.
  • Label carrier & repeat – with RFID, the label carrier & / or repeat may need to be adjusted due to inlay PET size & / or end user’s printer requirements.

RFID INLAY

Has your customer already done any testing with inlays to verify which inlay will work best in their application?

YES – what inlay?

NO

  • What are the maximum and minimum dimensions of the tag?
  • What read distance do you need?
  • What will the tags be applied to?

ENCODING

Does your customer plan on encoding/imprinting the labels themselves, or would you like us to provide this service?

If the customer is doing the encoding, are they using a printer or handheld?

If a printer is doing the encoding, please provide both make and model. Certain printers require specific inlay placement and have minimum pitch requirements.

PRINTING

Do you need any static flexographic print on your label?

If you are able to provide the artwork up front so that our art dept can review that would be helpful.

MATERIAL

What type of label/tag do you need?

  • Paper / Synthetic
  • Adhesive or Tag with no Adhesive
    • If we are making a pressure sensitive label, what type of adhesive do you need?
  • How long do you want your label to last?
    • What type of surface will the tags be applied to?
    • Any special temperature requirements?

FINISHING

If you have any finishing requirements, please let us know:

  • Roll qty
  • Core ID / OD
  • Perf / No Perf
  • Specific number of rolls per carton
