Enterprise RFID Event Wristbands Sourcing Guide

1. Event wristbands case experience

With the increased frequency of festival events, the prevention of counterfeit tickets and ticket dumping, and quick ticketing access have become an urgent issue. The foreign market environment differs from that of China. For ticket verification, foreign events are used to RFID event management solutions. They are more secure and dependable than the QR code tickets used in China for events.

CardCube has rich experience in the music event industry with its perfect control system, including laser numbers, writing NDEF data, exporting UID data to avoid duplicate entries, correct assembly of cards and wristbands, etc.

Due to CardCube’s previous excellent experience with various festival events, CardCube was fortunate enough to receive an order from the famous electro-music festival Ultra for the cooperation project. During the 4 years of cooperation, CardCube designed and produced over 6 million RFID event ticket wristbands for Ultra.

Using advanced RFID technology, CardCube provided Ultra Festival organizers with a real-time data collection-based information system. It enabled ticketing, verification, management, collection and settlement, aggregation and statistics, and information analysis. The event RFID payment function was also added to the RFID concert wristbands. It allows electro-music event participants to pay small fees, improving customer satisfaction and experience. The brand image of Ultra electro-music festival organizers was also improved.

The wristbands of different materials can only use a specific process. The marketing effect achieved by other techniques will be different.

  • fabric knitting and Thermal Transfer Technology

These two processes are suitable for RFID woven wristbands and elastic wristbands. The fabric knitting Technology can not make different patterns on both sides of the wristband. Nonetheless, the knitting process has a more textured design, high cost, and a long production cycle. The Thermal Transfer Technology processing is the pattern embossed on both sides of the wristband; both sides can be embossed with different pictures, lower cost, economical and colorful patterns.

  • Processes for disposable PVC plastic wristbands.

Screen printing is more supplied on wristbands. It can also be color printing, two-dimensional printing code, bar code, or laser code.
