RFID & Antitheft Label
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. A tag can be read from up to several feet away and does not need to be within direct line of sight of the reader to be tracked.
RFID labels, also called smart labels, are a useful tool for tagging and tracking consumer products, monitoring inventories and handling other applications.
Our RFID labels can be ordered blank, pre-printed, or pre-encoded. Our inventory of popular sizes allows us to ship labels quickly. We also offer RFID label sizes made to most major printer specifications. The most common sizes are 4″ x 2″ and 4″ x 6″.
How RFID labels work
RFID stands for radio frequency identification. Similar to the way bar codes collect and send data with a visual scan, RFID technology uses radio waves to collect and send information, but it doesn’t require a line of sight between a label and a scanning device.
Benefits of RFID labels
What makes RFID tags special is their ability to transmit information to a networked system. Instead of needing to individually scan each item using UPC codes and barcode scanners, you can use computer systems in coordination with RFIDs to locate your products, automatically log your inventory and get actionable logistics data. They’re a highly efficient means of managing inventory, and today, they open up opportunities for new mobile payment systems.
RFID label applications
These labels are designed for use with standard RFID readers and are stocked in a variety of inlay types and sizes. They are available in paper and synthetic materials that work on non-metallic surfaces, plastics or corrugate.
Transportation and Logistics: Distribution, shipping and receiving and warehouse operations including case, pallet and cross-docking applications
Manufacturing: Work-in-process, product labeling, product ID/serial numbers, security and product lifecycle tagging
Healthcare: Specimen, laboratory and pharmacy labeling, document and patient records management
How we can help you with RFID label capabilities
We embed RFIDs into die-cut labels for our customers. More importantly, we help you identify the best way to put RFIDs into your labels without compromising design.
Anti-theft labels are small VIN stickers. They always have the vehicles VIN number and can also include a barcode, or paint, body, and chassis codes. Every car has anti-theft labels on each body panel of the vehicle. The pourpose of an anti-theft sticker is to trace each piece of the body to the original VIN. These small VIN tags are not to be confused with metal VIN plates or dashboard VIN labels. There can be 10 or more anti-theft stickers on one car, however when a vehicle gets damaged and needs replacement small VIN tags body shops will often order anywhere from one to four replacement anti-theft stickers.
