Does a Single RFID Label Printer Print Labels With Only One Type of RFID Transponder?
Is it possible to have labels containing transponders with different antenna shapes?
Most label printers print one size of label. That RFID printer can print and encode transponders of a variety of antenna shapes, as long as they are within the same label size. Typically, you would purchase rolls of labels with specific transponders embedded in them. I should point out that while you can print labels with a variety of transponder types, it is typically cheaper to use a single type of transponder. That's because you get a discount for bulk orders, so purchasing one lot of 100,000 labels is usually less expensive than buying five lots containing 20,000 of each type of transponder.
