FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Don’t worry, you’ll get the lingo quick. “RFID” stands for “Radio Frequency Identification” and RFID chips use, you guessed it, radio waves to transmit information between two or more devices. This is cool because it means customers can scan their RFID enabled product with your ticketing reader for seamless, smooth, and faster entry.
A cloth wristband is our customers favorite and our most long lasting wristband. They are the festival and event industry favorite as well, they work the best when RFID is incorporated and have the durability and coolness to be worn long after the event takes place. Function and keepsake in one! We have various options when it comes to cloth wristbands like our full color, woven or elastic bands.
Not only is it secure, it’s become the industry standard it’s so good. Security features include:
- - Fraud Elimination: Traditional print-at-home tickets can be duplicated, sold, and/or scalped. RFID credentials, on the other hand, have unique identification chips that make them impossible to duplicate.
- - Lost Bands: Since you don’t have to worry about counterfeit tickets anymore, you can now securely duplicate credentials if someone loses their pass. How? Simply deactivate the lost RFID enabled product and activate a new one using their original identification tag.
- - Cashless Payments: No cash, no credit card, just a wristband (or whatever credential you’re using). With secure RFID technology, guests simply add their payment information to their RFID tag before the event and scan or tap for transactions. Great for events, COVID safety, and anyone who doesn’t like dealing with losing their wallet.
We take security seriously and all our bands offer a high baseline level of security, no matter what. However, if you’re looking for top-of-the-line peace of mind and you’re asking what we’d pick if it were us, we’d absolutely go with our RFID Airbands. They offer the best technology with an encapsulated chip sewn into the band, offering the most secure credential possible. Take it up a notch? Add our barrel locker (once fitted onto your wrist, you can’t loosen, twist, or tear).
Unfortunately, no. However, we have a number of RFID solutions partners we recommend, including:
