RFID Labels
Global Venture is keeping on the cutting edge of label printing.  RFID labels are at the forefront of label technology.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) labels are a method of using specially printed labels for identifying unique items using radio waves. Typically, an electronic reader communicates with a microchip embedded in a label which holds digital information.

RFID labels can be used wherever regular labels are being used.  An RFID label delivers a great value beyond standard thermal labels.  It’s smart.  The electronic reader can be strategically placed to read the RFID label.  Say, for example, the Pepsi Bottling Company is using RFID labels on palettes of Pepsi in the warehouse.  As a pallet is moved around the warehouse it passes several electronic readers.  Information about when the pallet passes the scanner is recorded automatically.  RFID labels on products create the ability to track when and where the product is moved.

As RFID technology costs diminish, more and more businesses are relying on RFID. From wholesale distribution to retail sales from animal tracking to property protection, RFID labels are being used across all industries.

Recently, the big box retailers like Wal-Mart have introduced initiatives to ultimately place an RFID label on every item they sell. While it may be some time before consumers take home a bag of RFID products, the emerging trends are clearly leading in that direction. RFID labels are in great demand.

RFID can have many benefits, from controlling shrinkage in retail environments to speeding distribution throughout entire supply chains to tracking individual purchases to specific items and so on. The uses are many and varied – based on saving resources or gathering valuable data or both.

The real limits to RFID labels have more to do with costs of implementation an ongoing use and support than they do with the actual benefits available. RFID labels can be costly and the business that looks into RFID needs to be very specific about their expected return on investment. That said, RFID labels are used by thousands of companies – and growing daily.
