Diversified Labeling Solutions


Information-rich labels for manufacturing, shipping, and more. 




Custom and stock RFID labels for a variety of applications.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) labels are an excellent solution for companies looking to increase speed and accuracy of data collection. Customers in a wide range of industries including supply chain and distribution, retail, consumer goods and healthcare look to RAIN RFID technology. And as experts in both RFID and label production, DLS can help you reach these customers.

 What are RFID Labels?

A typical RFID label is similar to a typical pressure sensitive label but with a UHF RFID transponder (or inlay) embedded between the facestock and release liner. This inlay uses tiny microchips and an antenna to store information and transmit it to specially designed RFID readers. The information is encoded on the inlay using a specially designed printer-encoder such as the Printronix Auto ID T6000e, T4000 or T800 RFID printers, and these labels can be printed with additional information such as a traditional barcode, product identification or shipping information.


Much like barcodes, RFID is used to track and capture information about products, assets and inventory and is used in applications such as tracking goods through the supply chain and managing inventory in retail stores.



 Benefits of RFID Labels


Similar to barcodes, RFID labels can be attached to individual products, boxes or pallets for use in data collection and tracking. However, they provide a number of benefits to traditional barcodes including:

  • Doesn’t require direct line of site to be read.
  • Faster read rates, from farther distances.
  • The ability to simultaneously read multiple RFID labels.
  • Item level serialization.
  • Higher level of accuracy.
  • Information stored on the label can be updated on demand.
