UPM Raflatac, a manufacturer of RFID tags and inlays and Hansaprint, a Finnish printing house specializing in marketing solutions, are launching an NFC tag portal that will enable customers to create and buy NFC-integrated print products online.
The products that can be ordered from TagAge include labels, patches, stickers and posters. All products can be customized and personalized, with order volumes ranging from dozens to tens of thousands. The TagAge production supports variable data printing to include elements such as consecutive numbers, changing 1D/2D bar codes, text and images.
After choosing a product type and size, the customer can upload the desired layout in PDF or image format. The customer selects the RFID tag type, positions it on the product and chooses an optional tag encoding information such as a URL or SMS. Products can also be saved in a personal archive for later retrieval, editing and ordering.
UPM Raflatac is in charge of the development and manufacture of the tags used in the TagAge service. Hansaprint is responsible for developing the technical structure of the portal and the end production.
