COVID-19 Service Update
Shipping to the UK, Europe and the rest of the world
We have managed to continue shipping out NFC products to our customers over the last two weeks even though we have faced restrictions imposed by the UK government. We have two main methods of shipping being Royal Mail for the shipments under 2KG or DHL for shipment over 2KG and when customers require the more detailed tracking and speed of delivery that DHL provides.
We have noticed this week and that many of the Post Offices located in shops are starting to close for at least a week or two as the virus escalates. As the closures increase, we are expecting that the only method of shipping available will be the DHL service and we will continue to offer this as the only shipping met

With the growing need for NFC tags for asset management and tracking we are now selling these very strong black ABS cable ties with the NXP NTAG213 chip. This is a very small NFC chip that enables us to produce a reletively small cable tie at 196mm in total. The amazing thing is that even though it is so small it can still be read by a mobile phone - check out video of reading below
They are manufactured to the IP68 standard so will withstand high temperatures and deep water depths. They are expremely strong and engineered to the highest standard.
We have introduced a new range of NFC Tamperproof Stickers that continue to work, but provide an indicator as to whether the item has been opened or not. This is done by a unique antenna system and the NXP NTAG213TT chip. The chip has the same compatibility as the NTAG213 so is compatible with all mobiles on the market enabling the validation of an item using a standard mobile device either Adnroid, Windows or App that has NFC capability built in.
If you do not get us to encode these for you, you can encode them yourself using an Android NFC enabled mobile and the NXP TagWriter tool. You just need to write a URL and choose the Configure Mirror Options and then on the next form select NTAG213TagTamper as your tag type and just accept the defaults initially. Onc
We do not provide any online automatic process for creating NFC customised products as we have found it is better to treat each project with care - the same as a production agency would with any of their clients. As such here are the basic steps required to take aproject from conecpt through to starting production. Having completed 100's of bespoke projects we are more than willing to share our experience with you and provide professional guidance and advice.

We do many types of encoding projects for clients in large volumes, but as many companies use the NFC chip unique identifier (UID) for matching a sticker or tag to a person, asset, location they require the UID to be written as a text record to the tag and have it locked. They then need a spreadsheet of the UID's used so they can be loaded into their system for admin and security purposes. You can read the UID direct from the chip with no need to write the text record, but a lot of system will only read the NDEF record. The iPhone as an example will not allow you to read the UID from the chip and only a NDEF text record so this the only way you can currently make use the UID with Apple technology.
To help with implementation we add a removable label to the outside - our customers prefer this as once implemented they can remove for security reasons.
