NFC and What Are You Missing So Far (The Birth Of Wave Cards)

Smartphones have had access to NFC over the past many years. Honestly, it sounded like an “extra application” that you find too lazy to explore. For many people, it doesn’t fall much into the “must-have” category. However, it turned out that we may have little knowledge about NFC, and we have no idea what we are missing.

To begin with, NFC stands for Near Field Communication. It is a form of wireless communication between two electronic devices that are near to each other (approximately 4 centimetres to 10 centimetres).

Generally, this comes in two forms; Active and Passive. Active NFC consists of two active devices, and in most cases, the other one is your phone. To make it simple, paying to your favourite coffee shop using Google Pay or Apple Pay is an active form of NFC. That is because there is another active device involved aside from your phone. On the other hand, Passive NFC doesn’t require another active device. It is a form of communication between your smartphone and a readable tag. A readable tag is passive since it doesn’t need a battery or electricity to use it. In this case, your smartphone can generate a Radio Frequency (RF) that will power the tag. We will talk more about Passive NFC and how to maximize it for your benefit.


NFC is a standard on most smartphones today. The good thing is, you do not need an application to make your smartphone communicate with readable tags. All you need to do is to activate the NFC in the settings.

Furthermore, it does not matter whether you connect to wifi or not. You do not need an internet connection for this form of communication.

Now that you get your smartphone ready, you can connect it to a readable tag. But what is a readable tag? You can call them smart tags, NFC tags or even NFC Cards. This little card has a storage memory and a radio chip attached to an antenna. As I mentioned above, readable tags are passive, they don’t have power. They draw power from your smartphone instead.

Readable tags vary in terms of design and function. To give you a better picture, there’s a company called UV Print Australia, which specializes in creating different kinds of readable tags, and they call it Wave Cards:

1. Digital Business– either for personal or business use, share your personal contact information wirelessly such as name, title, email, website, address, and phone number.

2. Social Media– You can grow your engagement, increase your followers, advertise your business, and many more, across all social media platforms.

3. Reviews Collector– Get more client reviews by easily sharing your Google, Facebook, Trust Pilot, or any reviews platforms, without chasing clients by emails or newsletters.

4. Lead Generation– Direct leads and potential customers to your appointment booking system or calendars, where they can book your services, and lock date and time instantly

These cards are made of high-quality materials that are resistant to water and heat. You can customise the cards to match your taste in design, and you can also choose from Plastic PVC, Bamboo Wood, and Metal in terms of the material you prefer to use. 

Wave Cards are easy to order, and unlike active devices, these cards are not costly. Over the years, the function of the readable tags has been evolving fast to meet the needs of the people today. We will explore more about different kinds of Wave Cards in the upcoming blogs.
