Why Choose an NFC Smart Poster?

You no doubt already use posters or in store displays to catch the eye of passing customers, to attract their attention and encourage them to take a further look at what your business has to offer. But there is a limit to how much information a poster can display and still maintain its impact. 

NFC Smart Posters do the job of attracting customers attention but also give them an easy, instant way to connect with more detailed information through their smartphone. An NFC chip installed in the Poster can direct a customer to whatever information you want to give them: that might be a link to your website; details of special offers; opening hours; product availability; marketing video; contact details or a link to relevant social media pages. They offer you a way to interact with your customers before they have even set foot in your premises and are at the cutting edge of digital advertising.

Extra Print Options

Please Note: These options are only available if they are listed within the selections above. 

Variable Number Print:
Many of our NFC Products - from NFC Tags to NFC Cards and Industry NFC Tags - can benefit from Variable Number Print, which allows NFC Tags to be individually identified. We can print directly onto the surface of a Tag (in black), clearly displaying an ID which matches a Tag's encoding and allows it to be referenced quickly.
Depending on requirements, some of our customers require the printed number to be the 14 digit alphanumeric UID number that we would retrieve directly from the NFC chip (IC) itself, and then print this UID number on the surface of the NFC Product so you would be able to visibly see the number you would be scanning when using the NFC functionality.
To select the Variable Number Print option simply select 'Variable Number Print' in the drop down above and upload a file with the Variable Number Print sequence that you require printed. If you require the NFC chips UID to be printed rather than a specific sequence, please make this clear on the file you upload.

Variable QR Code Print:

Variable QR Code Print along with the NFC functionality on products gives users two options to retrieve information via either using a camera on the QR Code or tapping onto the NFC chip (IC). The information received from the user could be a simple URL or some text. Variable QR Code print also offers the easy individual identification of NFC Products, with the printing of an alphanumeric or numeric sequence. In this way, NFC QR Code Print allows for easy cross-referencing.
We require that customers send a spreadsheet with two simple columns - one for the QR Code information, and one for the data to be encoded (if required).
To select the Variable QR Code print option please select 'Variable QR Code Print' in the drop down above.

Barcode Print:
Barcode Print allows many of our NFC Products to be individually identified, displaying a sequence on your NFC Products. This offers an easy reference for a number of purposes. These alphanumeric or numeric sequences can vary according to each unique NFC Product.
We offer the choice of an NFC Barcode Print in a simple shortened format which allows for quick identification, or a longer version. To take advantage of our NFC Barcode Print service, all you need to do is send us a spreadsheet containing the barcode information.
Please Note: Barcode Print is not a selectable option. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
