Avery Dennison Printer Systems Offers RFID Gen 2 Kit

Avery Dennison Printer Systems,
Philadelphia, reports its new Avery Dennison™ Basic Gen 2 Starter Kit features the components
companies in the apparel, footwear, packaging, distribution, retail and industrial markets need to
meet Gen 2 radio frequency identification (RFID) labeling requirements.

The kit’s Avery Dennison AP 5.4™ RFID Printer, which encodes and verifies RFID Gen 1 and Gen
2 chips, prints bar codes, copy and graphics on label surfaces, and detects nonconforming labels.
The included Windows®-compliant Label Management System software, featuring wizard-driven screens
and design tools, allows users to create or use preformatted RFID labels. A starter roll of RFID
carton/pallet labels, and technical support and on-site installation assistance from Avery Dennison
Printer Systems also are kit elements.

“The Basic Gen 2 Starter Kit is an economical solution for companies that must meet Gen 2
compliance mandates and have medium-duty label production requirements,” said Dan Williams,
marketing manager. “With the Gen 2 starter kit, even companies having little or no RFID labeling
experience can quickly get up to speed and initiate RFID Gen 2 labeling activities.”

Additionally, Avery Dennison Printer Systems has upgraded its Avery Dennison Industrial RFID
Starter Kit, which was released in early 2005, for Gen 2 operation.
