Custom NFC Stickers Options

An NFC sticker is possibly the most versatile tag. It comes in a wide range of sizes, shapes and types. Types range from common stickers, rigid stickers such as PVC and more specialised such as an industrial ABS plastic sticker. There are many additional options so a common sticker is customised to your application’s needs.

Common Plain Sticker

The common sticker is plain white. There is  also the option to print in a variety of colours such as solids and gradients. Needs an antimetal layer so it functions on metal and carbon fiber surfaces.

Printed Design

This option is the most popular because you can have your own logo or custom artwork printed on an NFC sticker. No colour limits! Full colour printing at no extra cost. Add antimetal layer for extra functionality.

Antimetal Stickers

You need an antimetal sticker, if the sticker is going on a metal or carbon fiber surface. This special layer allows it to function on these surfaces. It is slightly thicker than the common sticker. The layer is 0.35mm thick with the option of going thinner.

PET / Paper / PVC

Materials

Sticker are made from a variety of materials. The most common are paper and plastic. Plastic options are PET, PVC, ABS and PP. PET and PVC are most common for printed designs. ABS and PP are suited for more industrial. These are also rigid types and doesn’t allow for much custom printing options. It is recommended that paper is only used for indoor applications.

PET / PVC

PET or PVC

PET and PVC are both durable materials. They are ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. The thickness is graded as semi rigid so a sticker conforms to a moderate surface curve. PVC has two main differences. The colour white is blueish in PVC so PET is recommended when there is a lot of white in the artwork. PVC also comes in rigid form.

Epoxy Finish

All common or printed design custom stickers have the option on being finished in two types of epoxy. Epoxy is a clear drying and tough resin. It provides additional durability and enhances the appearance of a sticker. The first type is soft epoxy. It is a soft finish and conforms to mild surface curves. The second type is hard epoxy. This finish makes a sticker rigid. 

QR Code, Serial & Barcode Numbers

QR codes, serial numbers, barcodes or a mixture of identification markers are printable options on stickers and tags. This makes identification and management much easier. What and the amount to be printed is only limited by the sticker’s printable area.   

3M Adhesive

Sticker Adhesive

We use 3M 200MP adhesive as the standard for all custom NFC sticker orders. This adhesive provides good adhesion. Stronger adhesives are available such 3m VHB 4920 which is industrial grade and alternative for mechanical or chemical fixing. If you require a specific adhesive, please get in touch.

Shapes & Sizes

Stickers and tags come in many shapes and sizes. The most common are rounds, squares and rectangular. There are many available stock sizes. As an option, a custom mold is possible for a one off fee. This means you are able to have a custom shape sticker so it stands out!
