The NFC Tag is at the heart of any Contactless system. Small, inexpensive and portable, tags consist of a tiny chip and antenna, usually embedded within a sticker, poster or other product. NFC tags store data, transmitting it to a Contactless reader when in close proximity. The clever thing about NFC tags is that they don’t need batteries and never need to be recharged – they generate all the power they need from the Contactless transmission process itself.

NFC Tags can store data such as web addresses, product IDs and business card information. The main factors likely to influence your choice of tag are memory capacity and transmission strength.

  • Workplace NFC Tags

    With an ever-increasing range of workplace applications for Contactless technology, tags are being deployed more commonly in harsh environments. Our range of workplace NFC tags are specially designed to be more tough, robust and resilient, so they can be more reliably used in places where traditional Contactless tags may be subject to damage.

    In warehouses and retail environments, for example, heavy and repeated moving and handling can take its toll, so it’s advisable to use a tough, workplace NFC tag for asset control. Similarly, in outdoor Contactless applications and medical settings, workplace NFC tags can help to maintain reliability and efficiency.

  • General NFC Tags

    NFC tags come in a range of different styles and shapes. The industry standard is the 38mm white sticker, which is generally considered to offer a good balance between capacity and Contactless scan range. General NFC tags are suitable for a wide variety of Contactless applications, from stock control and marketing to security, and can easily be attached to a range of objects.

  • On Metal NFC Tags

    If your Contactless application involves attaching NFC tags to metal surfaces, you will need to use special On Metal NFC tags. Because of the sensitivity of NFC chips and antenna, they are susceptible to interference from metals in close proximity. This could corrupt the signal, rendering your tag less reliable or even unusable. On Metal NFC chips solve this problem by incorporating a shielding layer to protect the chip’s Contactless signal.
    Happily, you can use On Metal NFC tags on any other kind of surface too. So even if only some of your items are metal, you can still benefit from bulk ordering benefits.

    For custom print On Metal NFC tags simply select the print option you would like within the product page. With custom print On Metal NFC tags you control exactly how your tags will be personalised. Whether it’s your corporate logo, text, contact details, marketing message, photos, or in fact any other textual or graphical element you can think of, we will ensure that your Contactless tags are printed to your specific requirements. This is the perfect way to make sure that your marketing and branding are consistent, helping to promote customer engagement and advertise your embrace of cutting-edge Contactless technology.

  • Clear NFC Tags

    A clear NFC tag differs from a general NFC tag by not having an opaque top layer. This means that the Contactless circuit can be seen, the tag will be transparent, and it will be thinner than an ordinary tag. Clear NFC Tags are ideal for incorporating or embedding into other items because their ultra-thin form makes them unobtrusive and versatile.

    Clear NFC tags are ideally suited to applications in which you have your own items that you wish to make Contactless, such as product labels or wearables. Generally, clear NFC tags should be protected under a label or other material.
