RFID Pressure-Sensitive Smart Labels

RFID labelsWeber is applying its expertise as a leading manufacturer and supplier of pressure-sensitive labels to provide the finest in RFID smart labels.

Many big-box storesare now mandating RFID labels at product and carton levels for incoming products they warehouse and sell.


An RFID labeling program can not only help you meet these requirements, but also  improve your logistics operations.  By adding RFID tags and labels to your products or in-house processes, you can get a better handle on where your products are at any given time.


Weber can supply the custom RFID labels you need to fit your products and help you with equipment to apply those labels. We can even help you print/encode/apply labels if you need variable data on the labels with our label printer applicators.


When working with RFID labels, specifically Walmart, you need to get actual samples of the label you will be using and get them qualified by their source. Our experts can help you get the samples and quote your needs so you can anticipate timing and costs. Let us know what you need and we can help. We can just build your labels or print and encode them so they are ready for application.

RFID Label Overview

RFID Label Overview
Weber is an expert at manufacturing labels. We use the latest high-speed flexographic presses to produce rolls of blank and printed pressure-sensitive labels and tags.

Our innovative method of inserting the RFID inlays fits seamlessly within that conversion process. And because we manufacture the RFID smart labels ourselves, we're able to offer RFID media that will maximize performance and minimize costs.

Weber is a full-service, ISO 9001-registered labeling company. We do more than convert label material. We also are expert at recommending the right facestock and adhesive combination for a specific application.

Our facestock materials are available in thermal-transfer and direct thermal papers, film and other synthetic substrates – all of which can be provided in custom shapes and sizes – along with high- or low-tack adhesives. These are important considerations that can contribute to the overall success of an RFID label program.

Also critical is the selection of the optimum RFID inlay. We can help you determine which inlay will deliver the best performance for the intended application. And we'll guarantee its performance.

RFID Performance Factors

When chosing an RFID label and inlay, there are a couple of things to consider when trying to maximize your RFID read-performance.

Inlay Size and Manufacturer

A larger RFID inlay will usually give you a longer read range. Various manufacturers make their inlays available in different strengths and sizes to fit your need. Weber can help you decide which type of inlay will work for your application.

RFID Reader Type

What type of RFID reader/scanner will you be using? Readers are available in hand-held, fixed position and overhead types and each performs differently. The inlay must be able to broadcast to the nearest reader to be successful.

Product Material and Surface

The readability of your inlay will be reliant on how your product is packaged. What type of surface is the label applied on? Corrugated, glass, metal, plastic, concrete, liquid-filled? Each of these materials will give you a different read so testing would be advisable. Also, if you stack multiples of your product on pallets or within other packaging, your RFID readability can be affected, too.
