RFID Badge Design Guidelines

The surfaces of most RFID cards have irregularities that can cause printing issues over the raised chip and antenna areas when using direct-to-card (DTC) PVC printers. To avoid these issues, it is recommended to restrict your badge design and avoid the antenna zone. You can use a mobile phone flashlight to locate the antenna zone on the card. It is also suggested to use reverse-transfer printers for this purpose and use composite 60/40% formats for extended durability. Laminating the card with a 1MIL patch on each side can provide even more durability.

However, MIFARE® DESFire® is making its way into our reader-controlled ecosystems for its cybersecurity compliance at the highest level. eXpress badging is your card technology guide to the correct product mix. With NXP MIFARE, customers are given the freedom to choose in an open solution channel.

Do you know exactly what your RFID specifications are?

Knowing exactly what card technology your organization needs is number four in our Eighth Step of the Discovery journey. Your card box or packaging label should contain the information needed for repeat orders.  If ordering for the first time, you should ensure the format is not vendor-specific.  Manufacturer-specific is OK, as few open formats are on the market today.  Check with other card reader systems within your ecosystem to configure with either the same technology, or have a combination of them so one card works in them all.

Why would you laminate RFID Photo ID badges?

If you’re looking for durable Photo ID badges with embedded RFID technology, eXpress badging suggests using composite card stock of 60% PVC and 40% Polyester. To ensure longevity, it is recommended that you duplex laminate the badge with a 1MIL laminate using your PVC badge printer. This will help protect the badge from wear and tear, ensuring it lasts much longer. When We Print for You, these two features make up our DURAbadge format, where we guarantee your badge lasts a minimum of two years. Lamination is essential if your ID badges have a magnetic stripe or barcode to avoid damage from swiping.
