Tagging best practise

Following are the different tagging procedures and the steps which need to be followed while doing tagging.

By following this procedure we can make sure the RFID tags are tagged properly and there is no chance for opening of the RFID tags.

Straight Tag

  • Peel the tag from ‘Head’ side.
  • Try to hold tag between the thumb and index finger. This ensures limited disturbance to the glue area.
  • Stick tail to one side of tag, the tail should not cross the ‘half’ mark.
  • Fold the crease line that divides both sides of tag.
  • Press it towards upward movement.
  • This method ensures there is no air bubble or gap being build up between both sides.
  • ‍If the tag is not aligned it will expose glue and collect dirt.
  • ‍Ensure tail is not pushed in all the way so it folds and creates a bubble.

Caution: RFID labels have an additional layer of material inside, to ensure the glue holds we need to apply more pressure than regular labels.

Butterfly Tag

  • ‍Peel the tag from ‘Head’ side.
  • ‍Hold tag between the thumb and index finger. This ensures limited disturbance to the glue area.
  • Fold the tail end by half.
  • While the tail is still placed, follow the crease line on the other half of the tag and press it to attach both sides.

Caution: RFID labels have an additional layer of material inside, to ensure the glue holds we need to apply more pressure than regular labels.

  • Avoid touching the glue area.
  • Press the label firmly for few seconds to ensure the tag is positioned and stick properly.
  • Do not forcibly open tags once it is attached, this leads to glue losing the bond and RFID chip may get damaged.
  • Do not hide the tags inside the Jewelry. you can use nylon thread to tie the tags and place below the item holder.
  • Avoid tags laying one above the other.

Important Note:

  • Whenever you print the tags, Scan the tags to make sure the tags are properly encoded and reading before sending to showroom. At sometimes the tag may not be properly encoded when printer not calibrated properly.

Methods of Damaging Tag

  • The tag may look in good condition but it is damaged when tagging (E.g: User inserting the tag with the items in the holder).
  • Rubbing the tags at the center point (Chip Present) will damage the tag.
  • Do not bend the tags at the center as it will damage the tag and tag will not read at all.
  • The tags should not be completely stuck to the metal which makes the tag not readable by the scanner.
