Custom Printing of NFC Stickers

MONOCHROME PRINTING OF NFC STICKERS

It is a thermal transfer printing that is performed directly on the sticker and can be applied to any NFC Stickers available in reels. This kind of printing withstands water and rubbing.

It can be made in one color (black) on any sticker on reel, both normal stickers and on-metal ones.

This kind of printing is intended for simple logos (no shades, white background) or for serial numbers, QR, EAN codes. You can also print more variable data together.

This is a very fast printing: we can print thousands stickers a day. UID printing is not supported.

Price is 0.05 €/tag, in addition to the price of the chosen sticker (min. 100 pieces) - Go to the monochrome printing

In short:

  • printing in black only
  • simple logos
  • variables, serial, QR, etc.
  • resistant
  • quick (1 day)

EXPRESS PRINTING OF NFC STICKERS

Express printing allows full-color printing, even for small quantities. It is performed quickly: usually we print the same day of the order. It can be applied to "normal" NFC Stickers, "on-metal" NFC Stickers, and PVC Stickers, both on-metal and standard ones.

On Custom Printed NFC Stickers, we offer a "standard size label", which is the fastest and most economical solution. Otherwise, you can choose NFC labels with custom shape and size (more expensive).

Size is fixed in case of On-metal NFC Tags (diameter 32 mm) and PVC Tags (diameter 30 mm).

In any case, printing is performed in high quality and it is very resistant to water and weather.

If you choose "standard size label", we can also make variable printing. UID printing is not supported.

OFFSET PRINTING OF NFC STICKERS

Offset printing is done in CMYK directly during the production of the Tag itself. Offset printing offers the best print quality. However, due to the production process, the minimum order quantities are higher (2000 pieces for labels, 1000 for PVC tags) and longer times (from 2 to 5 weeks).

An offset printed sticker is very durable and waterproof.

With Offset Printing, you can print variable fields, including the UID.
