integrated RFID Source Tagging solutions combine EAS devices with
your labels and tags that are delivered directly to your product
source and will provide solutions to:
• Improve product tracking
• Improve supply chain tracking
• Reduce retail theft
What is Source Tagging?
is the integration of security tags with a product, either at the
point of manufacture or point of packaging.
Source tagging reduces the cost and labour involved in applying
security devices 'in-store' and opens the supply chain to greater
track and trace capability.
The most common system in use is the attachment of a security tag
to the product, either overtly or covertly, which is then
deactivated at point of sale.
Protect your investment with security tags
Security tags are disposable tags which come in a variety of
styles and materials depending on the desired application required.
Available in either RFID (Radio Frequency) or AM (Acousto Magnetic)
formats, the format used will be determined by the hardware reader
systems used by the retailer.
How Image Label Systems do it
Our source tagging is focused on the integration of RFID tags or
AM tags into labels and swing tags for antitheft and product
tracking. These solutions range from:
The entry-level product is an RFID tag that is overprinted with a
bar code or other variable information.
Integrated Swing Tag
The integrated swing
tag is either covert or overt. The covert solution encases the
tag device (either RFID or AM) within the swing tag.
The overt solution applies the tag device to one side of the swing
tag. In either case the swing tag can either be plain (unprinted)
or can carry brand imagery, as well as other variable information
for use at point of sale.
woven label product looks like a traditional woven label.
However it is manufactured using the patented Comfortsoftwear™
process, as a 'pocket' that houses the tag device (either RFID or
After sale, the woven pocket is generally removed by the consumer
to prevent reactivation, so this solution is generally of a generic
nature and doesn't usually carry any form of branding.
There is no substitute for top quality labelling and good design
particularly when it is used to enhance product tracking and reduce
