Avery Dennison Offers RFID Sourcing Solutions

Avery Dennison Retail Information
Services (RIS), Westlake Village, Calif., now offers RFID Ticket Express®, a program designed to
facilitate ordering and delivery of goods by vendors that use radio frequency identification (RFID)
labels in order to comply with government and retailer sourcing requirements.

The company says the program enables vendors to ship pre-programmed and verified RFID labels
to their manufacturing and distribution centers worldwide in 48 to 72 hours. It operates on an
existing Ticket Express service bureau platform, which comprises more than 35 printing centers in
more than 30 countries and can be used in association with in-house RFID printing operations.

“With RFID Ticket Express, we receive variable data from our customer, program RFID labels
with the Electronic Product Code, and preprint them as required with human-readable data, bar codes
and symbols,” said Robert Loop, vice president, marketing, Avery Dennison RIS.

“RFID Ticket Express gives companies enormous flexibility and can eliminate costs and
management involvement associated with in-house RFID labeling,” he added.
