All things RFID..

Custom or blank, one technology or many. Let us bring your brand to life!

125 KHz Low Frequency

The bulk of legacy systems in place use proximity cards. These cards contain a unique format, facility code and programmed number that tie to the card holder and access rights.

13.56 MHz High Frequency

Considered more secure than prox, high frequency is used for transactions (tap) and is built into most modern phones (NFC).

928 MHz Ultra High Frequency

People and asset tracking. Read range of 10 to 30 feet. Passive tag that reflects back the signal with data. Most common use is Enhanced DL's, WHTI/ETC and pallet delivery/inventory control.



From basic cards to custom, we can do it all!

All of our production is handled at the Lima, NY plant. Starting with sheets, the printing is done. Collation is next where the protective layers are added and the core, RFID prelam is inserted into the card structure. Next, we hydraulic laminate the sheets together so it forms one solid piece. Last is die cutting using a match die for perfect edges. 


Custom sizes such a rearview hangtags, over-sized event cards or even key tags are often cut using a steel rule die. These dies require a thinner card structure but offer the cheapest product to be made. This allows us to deviate quickly from form factors and get your product out in a timely fashion.

You Ask, We Answer

How long does it take to produce custom RFID cards?

The first concern is if the RFID chip is in stock. Once we've established that, production typically takes 3 weeks. Some blank cards are in inventory for quick shipment to tide you over while production takes place. Preprinting, security features, silkscreen inks, etc. all add to the lead time.
