We are MIFARE® card printing specialists and are a registered MIFARE® Partner, so you can buy with confidence. All our cards contain genuine NXP chips. NXP's integrated 'originality check' feature protects against cloning and the use of counterfeit tickets.

MIFARE® cards are widely recognised as the industry standard in numerous applications including smart ticketing, contactless transport, access control and employee ID.

The MIFARE® family includes:

  • Classic®: the original and most popular range, used across public transport and access management. Available in 1K and 4K memory.
  • DESFire®: the high security range for multi-application smart card solutions. Used when fast and secure data transmission is needed and the choice of solution developers and system operators. Well suited to the complex needs of Universities, Colleges, Public Transport Operators and Government bodies. Available in 4K and 8K memory.
  • Ultralight®: ideal for low cost, high-volume applications. Commonly used to replace magnetic stripe or barcode cards with a contactless alternative. They are often used for single-use tickets or limited-used passes due to their lower cost.

Please note that if you are choosing Biodegradable or 100% Recycled PVC that this applies to the PVC element of the card only. The chip itself is not recycled or recyclable.

Custom RFID Common FAQs

Read our FAQs for questions about our Custom RFID Cards.

Can you send me a sample RFID card to test on my system before I order?

Yes, we always recommend testing one of our cards on your system to double check they work as you’d expect before ordering.

Please contact us and we’ll send one out to you.

Do you offer more sustainable options to virgin plastic?

Yes. We now offer Wood and Bamboo RFID Cards, plus Biodegradable and Recycled Plastic options.

Please contact us for more information or view our ECO-Friendly RFID Range.

You can check our credentials here.

All our MIFARE® products have genuine NXP chips so you can buy with confidence.

I use a MIFARE® card currently, will a Fudan card work on my system?

Fudan is a compatible technology to MIFARE®, so it’s likely that it will work on your system, however we recommend getting a sample card from us first to test.

Do your RFID Key Cards work with Ving, Onity, Salto or Dormakaba?

Yes, we provide custom programmed key cards for all hotel key card systems, in both plastic and wood.

We will always send you a sample to test first, to ensure they work on your specific system before ordering.

Do you offer a more sustainable RFID Keyfob?

Yes. We offer Wood RFID 1K Keyfobs that have a Fudan chip, which is compatible with MIFARE®.

We can also customise these to your requirements.

Is a matt or gloss finish better?

It depends on what you want your cards to do and long you expect them to be in use, but there are definitely times when we would recommend matt over gloss due to the fact that it doesn’t show up scratches or smudges as easily.

Can I include a number range on my cards?

Yes. You can add number ranges, individual names and personalised details onto each individual card.

We refer to this as variable data as it changes on each card.

There is a small additional cost for this on top of the card price.

I’m not sure what features I need on my cards, can you help?

If you’re unsure about whether you need to add extra features like barcodes, embossed numbers or spot varnish, give one of our friendly team a call.

We’ll run through your requirements to make sure you aren’t paying for extra features you don’t need.
