What Is the Usual RFID Label-Printing Process?

Posted By RFID Journal, 02.06.2015

How is labeling typically carried out?

The process starts with assigning specific serial numbers to specific items. This is done in a database application, and the precise process depends on the software and tags you are using. A tag might come preprogrammed with a serial number, or you might write the number to the transponder when printing the label. If the tag is preprogrammed, then you would simply print the label and apply it after assigning the serial number to your product in the database.

If you are writing the serial number to the tag, then you must assign that number to the product and send that information to the printer, which would then encode each label with the appropriate serial number. There are a variety of software applications on the market that would enable you to do this. I encourage you to contact the company that makes the labels and printer you are using, in order to determine the best option to meet your needs.
