And what is a short- or tight-pitch label?

—Name withheld


A label’s pitch is the height of that label, plus the border around it. If a label has a short or tight pitch, it usually means that the label is not very high, and/or that there is only a very small gap between labels. This can prove challenging for RFID printers, since it means that transponders in adjacent labels are very close to one another, so a reader-writer might not easily be able to write information to a given transponder.
