NFC stickers are capable tags for a variety of applications. They come in many shapes, sizes, variety and surface finishes. Stickers will go on most surfaces even metal and carbon fiber. They tolerate a fair amount of environmental stress such as water splashes, dust and abrasion.
Our printed stickers are all original designs. Some are designed for simplicity and with no branding so they are useful for commercial use. Other designs are designed for a specific use. Most come in a variety of colours and designs including antimetal type.
Our plain stickers are just that, plain and white. They’re easy to write on. Most are made from durable PET or PVC plastic including antimetal option so they are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. There is also a small but growing selection of wet inlays (stickers).

Where Are You Sticking It?
Knowing the surface of where a sticker goes on is important. Metal and carbon fiber surfaces requires an NFC sticker to have an antimetal layer. This enables the sticker to remain functional. Without this layer, a sticker will not work on metal or carbon fiber surfaces.
A Variety Of Finishes
Stickers come in a variety of materials and surface finishes. The most common materials are paper and plastic such as PET or PVC. This forms the base of the sticker. The surface comes in either gloss or matte. Soft epoxy is an additional option that adds protection and visual appeal.
Have It Your Way
NFC stickers come in many shapes, sizes and form. Round, rectangular and square shapes are the most common. The size can be small such as a 10mm diameter round or a large 80mm diameter. Stickers can also come in a rigid form such as PVC.
The Safe Choice Antimetal Stickers
Not sure what surface material the stickers are going on? An antimetal sticker is the safe choice because it works on most surfaces including metal and carbon fiber. An NFC sticker on a metal surface without this special layer doesn’t work.
It’s about energy. An NFC tag is a passive device that needs energy to work. The antimetal layer prevents energy from the mobile being lost to metal or other conductive materials such as carbon fiber.
Does Size Matter?
The answer is both yes and no. It all depends on the application. There are 2 ways to approach it. The physical sticker size and the antenna size.
The physical sticker size is the actual size. Your application may limit the maximum size because of dimension requirements such as limited surface area to stick it. This also possibly limits you to a particular sticker shape.
Bigger stickers are easier to notice. If there are no size limit in your application, a bigger sticker is a good idea. In most cases they look better , more space for artwork and a bigger antenna.
The size of the antenna is important. A good size is between 25mm diameter to 76x45mm (NFC card antenna size). It is not recommended to go bigger because there is little performance improvement. Antenna sizes between 32x32mm and 76x45mm are much easier to pick with phones. All other sizes means it may take a little more time to read the tag.
