Tagging drinks

Every well-rounded product set includes drinks! Because drinks are liquid, they must be tagged properly. Drinks should be tagged with a Drink Flag Tag or Metal Safe Tag.

Before we dive in, let's take a look at the anatomy of the Flag Tag:

A Drink Tag or Metal Safe Tag will allow the RFID antenna to be placed up and away from liquids and any metal, which is critical in order for the tag to be read by the store's antennae.

Below is an example of a TetraPak, aluminum can and water bottle where a Metal Flag Tag or Drink Flag Tag should be used:

Applying the Metal Flag Tag or Drink Flag Tag to a yogurt should look like this:


Tip: Make sure there is air space between the tag and the product. This includes other products near the tag. Ensuring there is proper air space will allow the antennae to read the tags.
