At Partitalia, we print and customise RFID wristbands, key fobs, hard tags and labels using various techniques, ranging from offset printing to thermographic printing, pad printing and silkscreen printing. We also number the tags using our robotic laser marking unit or inkjet printing. Learn more about customising our RFID tags!


The offset technique, also called lithography, applies four-colour printing (magenta, cyan, yellow, black) and up to 8 colours in one pass. We produce prints in Pantone colours and with a glossy or matt finish.

Offset printing offers extreme flexibility and very quick production times. We apply custom logos to RFID wristbands made of polyurethane, PET and Tyvek, a synthetic material with a paper-like appearance; clear disks and hard tags in PVC; RFID labels made of adhesive paper, PET, PVC and polypropylene. We also work with RFID key fobs made of ABS and PVC. Their entire surface can be customised with logos and prints.


Inkjet printing is a digital technique used to print numbers at high speed with very high production quality standards. The process involves tanks of solvent-based inks and a series of tubes that carry the ink to a printhead.

The printhead sprays tiny drops of ink onto the surface to be printed (drop-on-demand). We use the inkjet technique to print serial numbers on RFID wristbands equipped with a PVC dial, and on Tyvek or polyurethane wristbands; on RFID key fobs made of ABS, nylon and PVC; and on clear disks and hard tags in PVC. On RFID labels made of paper, PVC, PET and polypropylene, we print both logos and numbers in black and white using inkjet technology.


Thermographic printing is a digital printing technique that relies on a heated printhead. When the image is sent to the printer, the printhead draws the figure on the surface using heat.

Thermographic printing is also called dye sublimation printing. Using thermographic printing, we customise RFID labels with logos and numbers in black and white on a variety of materials — PVC, PET, polypropylene and fabrics such as nylon, taffeta and polyester, which are used for smart labels applied to garments.


Laser printing during the production process allows variable data such as serial numbers to be applied to the surface with extremely durable results. Laser marking is a monochrome printing technique that guarantees very high resolution.

This technique can be used on all solid materials. The laser beam etches the material and causes the removed part to evaporate. With our robotic laser-printing unit, we apply serial numbers to RFID wristbands made of polyurethane, silicone, faux leather and PVC dials; key fobs made of ABS, PA6 (nylon) and PVC; hard tags in any plastic material; and glass tags, special glass tags for animal tracking and industrial uses.


Silkscreen printing enriches prints with bright, solid, metallic, gold or silver, glitter, fluorescent or phosphorescent colours. The reference for silkscreen printing colours is the Pantone scale and, in some cases, the RAL scale.

Silkscreen printing is performed by ‘squeezing’ the colour through special frames directly onto the printing substrate. Each silkscreen printing colour must be dried individually, which is done automatically by machines equipped with drying ovens or UV lamps. We use this technique to apply custom logos to silicone RFID wristbands with PVC dials; key fobs in ABS and PA6 (nylon); hard tags in nylon and plastics such as PPA and ABS; clear discs, disc-shaped RFID tags consisting of a laminate or PVC layer enclosed between two transparent PET sheets.


Pad printing is a printing technique based on a silicone pad. Dampened with a thin layer of ink, the pad is passed onto an engraved plate known as a pad printing plate, which is then placed on the surface of the product.

Pad printing is suitable for both irregular and smooth surfaces, and can be used on numerous materials. With the fixed-colour pad printing technique, we print logos on silicone and PVC wristbands; on ABS, faux leather and PVC key fobs, which can be customised over the entire surface; and on hard tags made of PVC, ABS, PPA, epoxy resin, nylon and other high performance resins, polymers and industrial plastics.
