RFID Paper Turns the Page on Label and Card Printing
Russian RFID technology company ISBC Group has released a solution known as RFID Paper, which is intended to enable companies to inexpensively print customized RFID labels in-house and on demand, as an alternative to label-conversion machines or third-party service bureaus and the long rolls of tags typically purchased from such businesses. Since its release earlier this year, ISBC's HF- or UHF-enabled paper has been used predominantly to print RFID-based cards and badges. RFID Paper can be printed via HP Indigo printers to produce several rows of ready-to-use RFID tags.
The paper is intended to serve one of the company's largest customer sectors: smart cards that can be used as contactless payment for transportation, access to lifts at sky resorts, or access to loyalty or other services by retail chains.
