White matte NFC cards with a NTAG216 chip
(Product ID: 3510)

Are you looking for NFC cards with enough memory to store your digital business card? Check out our white NFC cards with the most commonly used NFC chip for business cards.

The NTAG216 is a NFC Type 2 chip with a memory of 888 bytes which is enough to store your business card information in the form of vCard.

To store a digital business card, you can use your NFC mobile phone and a free app like NFC Tools.

With such a NFC business card, you will be able to easily transfer your contact details to other NFC supporting mobile phones.

This is very convenient for use at business meetings, exhibitions, or even for private use. The receiver only has to unlock his phone to enable a contactless scan of your card. Your contact information will be displayed on his mobile phone and there will be an option to save contact details into his address book.

The contactless data exchange is especially important in these times when we are confronted with various dangerous digital viruses.

The NTAG216 chips are suitable for use in various other NFC applications as well. The NTAG216 is almost identical to the NTAG213 but has a larger memory, and it can store up to 888 bytes of different kinds of data.

You can purchase white cards from stock, or send us an inquiry for printed cards with your company logo or other information. Depending on the quantity and deadline, we will help you select the best option for printing.

NFC cards with a NTAG216 chip are plastic cards with a standard credit card dimension (86 x 54 x 0.85 mm). The top layer contains a coating so the cards can be printed with thermal printers.

They operate on a frequency of 13.56 MHz, which is a frequency range for proximity cards that operate within proximity distances – usually up to 10 cm. 

NTAG216 is a NFC Type2 chip, is compatible to the ISO/IEC 14443-3A standard, and has a 7-byte long unique ID number that can be used for identification purposes.

The most frequent use of NTAG216 chips is to store the content of a digital business card. The standard format for exchange business card information is called ‘vCard.’

Such a card is automatically recognized by various NFC phones, even with different operating systems, and the user can easily transfer a contact information to his phone.

The encoding of the vCard is quite simple and can be done even with free NFC apps like the NFC Tools. You have to click “Add Record” – select “Contact” – write your data in the fields, and click “Write.”

Options for customization (for pricing please send us an inquiry)

For printing smaller quantities (1–500 pcs), we usually use high quality thermal retransfer printers which print each card separately with CMYK colors. This type of card can have multiple artwork variations or personalized data which doesn’t affect the price. 

The advantage of thermo retransfer printers is that they print one card at a time and allows us to print even a single card when needed. The disadvantages of thermal retransfer print are high costs of ribbons and slow speed, so it makes it less cost effective for higher quantities.

When producing more than 500 printed cards, we use offset printing technology and other professional manufacturing equipment. Beside the CMYK colors, we can print gold, silver, or Pantone colors as well. These cards can be serialized or personalized during the manufacturing process or later on with thermal printers.

Our other customization services include:
-    Numeration or personalization form Excel table
-    Printing different kind of barcodes and QR codes
-    Reading and printing the chip ID numbers in various formats
-    Chip encoding – the content of digital business cards, writing custom data, change keys.

If you need printed cards or other customization services, please send us an inquiry with the desired card quantity and deadline.

Reading test for NFC cards with a NTAG216 chip

We have tested the NTAG213 cards with different kinds of readers and measured the reading distances. This is not an official test, but it was made to inform you what reading distances you may expect with your application.
RFID Reader Reading distance
Syris RD300-H1-G 6 cm
ACR1252U-M2 4,5
Syris RD200-M1 3,5 cm
R80UF NFC Reader 3 cm

The reading distance between the card and the reader is affected by many different factors, like the size of the antennas and quality of the chips, the interferences of metal, and electromagnetic signals, etc.
