IRVINE, Calif.—HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure     identity, today announced the addition of a convenient yet sturdy mobile     sticker format to its family of contactless payment and identification     cards. The stickers make it easier to add closed-loop payment and     loyalty systems to existing automatic fare collection or retail systems,      or to augment campus identification systems with new access control     capabilities. They also can be affixed to mobile phones as a bridge to     coming NFC mobile payment services.

Unlike other stickers, HID’s sturdy, adhesive-backed stickers include an     internal ferrite layer that shields electronics from interference even     when attached to items containing metal, such as mobile phones. They     come in a breakout ID-1 card format and can be printed with customer     information including serial numbers, activation codes, messages, brand     elements and/or promotional text and artwork. HID Global offers print     customization in low quantities, providing companies with an economical     way to extend their brand presence. To meet existing customer     environments, HID’s contactless payment and identification stickers are     available with DESFire®, MIFARE® and iCLASS® technologies, ensuring     maximum flexibility in design and use.

“Contactless payment stickers enable users to experience the convenience     and reliability of next-generation NFC-enabled mobile payment, now, by     simply attaching them to mobile phones, MP3 players or other frequently     carried items,” said David Nichols, Product Marketing Director,      Credentials, with HID Global. “We continue to offer more ways to deliver     secure access and conduct cashless transactions, whether with     traditional cards or easy-to-use contactless stickers, and each of our     credential form factors plays an important role as consumers seek more     reliable and convenient secure identity solutions.”

HID Global’s contactless payment and identification stickers are     available in both volume and sample quantities. HID’s sticker     customization program allows customers to choose from a variety of     printing, laser engraving, programming, artwork and contactless chip     technology options, upon request. In the field, stickers may be printed     with brand elements, custom designs or other information using desktop     card printers such as the Fargo® line of financial card printers with     patented High Definition Printing (HDP™) technology. The single-use part     can be discarded by the end-user after receipt.

For more information on HID Global’s family of secure contactless     payment and identification stickers please contact an HID Sales     Representative. In addition, these solutions will be on display at     CARTES & Identification 2010 in Paris, France, located in Hall 3, Stand     F002 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center from 7th December to     9th, 2010.
