RFID Labeling Information

RFID Labels

RFID labels are produced with a variety of face stocks, and UHF, NFC/HF inlays are inserted to meet the requirements of specific applications. Any RFID form factor, wet or dry, can be inserted to produce RFID labels:

  • Logistics labels: meet retailer mandates for case and pallet shipping labels
  • Asset tracking labels: produce RFID labels for warehouse, inventory and production tracking
  • Airline bag tags: provide luggage tracking and enhance security
  • Apparel labels: improve inventory management and merchandising with item-level tagging.
  • Library labels: locate, track and manage library materials
  • File labels: track legal and patient files
  • Pharmaceutical and nutraceutical labels: provide item-level tracking for inventory, anti-counterfeiting and e-pedigree requirements.


RFID inlays are inserted between top-of-tag and bottom-of-tag plies to produce tag and ticket constructions:

  • Apparel tags: improve inventory management and merchandising with item-level tagging. Inventory counts are completed with dramatic time savings, resulting in rapid ROI.
  • Tickets: meet transportation, leisure and event ticketing requirements for patron convenience, security and anti-counterfeiting
  • Ski-lift tickets: for patron convenience and enhanced security
