Print and NFC
NFC – Print's Digital Connection
Near-field communication (NFC) technology uses tiny, radio frequency (RFID) emitting tags to connect with digital devices like smartphones. When a smartphone comes within range of the RFID signal, its web browser displays the content the signal steers it to. It’s that simple. There are no special apps needed or software to download. With Apple’s release of ios11, virtually all mobile devices moving forward will provide NFC interactivity.
NFC tags can be embedded or applied as stickers to anything that can be printed. And, the content that the chip is linked to can be changed at any time, providing versatility, adaptability, and campaign longevity. Drive people to a website, a video, a contest, to update their contact profile or any online destination through any printed piece.
Print Uses for NFC
Brochures, in store signs, posters, flyers, mailers, manuals, instruction sheets, coupons, business cards, invitations, menus, folders, magnets, door hangers, table tents, coasters . . . whatever can be printed!
