29mm Garment Spec NTAG424

  • Cost effective flexible garment tags
  • Powerful NTAG424 authentication chip
  • Perfect for clothing and accessories
The 29mm clear garment specification sticker tag is a strengthened version of the popular standard 29mm clear tag. Designed for use in product, garment and accessory integration where extra durability is required. The tag is constructed from thicker plastic layers and there's an extra epoxy bond over the chip and solder bonding.

This variant has NXP's NTAG424 chip for anti-counterfeit and authentication protection.

This tag can withstand flexing and domestic wash and dry cycles. It's ideally suited for use in clothing, shoes, handbags and other fashion or garment items. However, it's increased strength and durability means it's a very useful tag in a variety of other NFC use cases.

Supplied on reels of up to 2,000 tags. A superb cost effective alternative to the more traditional rigid NFC laundry tags.

Note that the NTAG424 chip is an advanced chip which requires specialist software such as our Ixkio Tag Management platform both for encoding and for verification to use the anti-counterfeit features. You cannot encode these tags for authentication using a mobile phone. Please contact us before purchasing if you want to use authentication tags but aren't sure how to start.

Using NFC Tags in Clothing

Seritag stock and can supply a wide range of tags for smart clothing, garments, shoes and other wearables. We have extensive experience and are always happy to provide help and advice. A few things to consider : 

Durability

Generally, the choice is between a 'garment spec' label and a hard disc tag. 

Seritag created the term Garment Specification tags to define strengthened labels which are typically designed for up to 100 domestic washes. Our tags are either tested using thermal and humidity cycling or testing to the ISO6330 international standard for textile washing. They are slightly flexible. 

Hard disc tags are rigid PPS plastic tags typically from 20mm to 25mm in size. 

Our general advice is that if your project should not have any failed tags under any circumstances, you need to use a hard disc tag. If you don't expect the garment to be washed (collectables) or washed infrequently, you expect the tags only to be scanned early in their life and/or an occasional failure later in the garment's life is acceptable - use a Garment Spec label. 

Attachment

Most garment tags - both disc and label - would be attached behind a sew-on or iron-on label. Sew-on is typically the best choice for all tags but almost always for rigid disc tags. 

We can also supply sew-on disc tags which look like buttons and can be directly applied. We aren't keen on these as the central holes can restrict chip and antenna design and can often lead to a tag that can be difficult to scan. 

We usually stock some direct iron-on garment tags which can be ideal for placing tags during manufacture or for shorter term direct use. Generally, for longer use, direct iron-on tags should be placed behind a second iron-on or sew-on patch to keep them secure.

Logistics

One bit of advice we always give - start simple and grow. The logistics of adding NFC tags to clothing can get complicated quickly - as most factories aren't used to using smart labels. While it might be the goal for unique tags in every product line, size and colour - it might not be best to try and do that from day one.

Keep it generic, keep it simple. The grow. 

Management

Seritag offer our groundbreaking ixkio tag management platform for deployment and post-installation management of both standard and authentication NFC tags. Whether you need to create dynamic NFC tags so you can modify the links later or full featured authentication for anti-counterfeit, our software has all the features you are likely to need.
