QuickTags


FAQ

What are QuickTags?

QuickTags are created using NFC (Near-Field Communication), which is a technology that has been around for a while. Small strips of metal are hidden within stickers, posters, key rings, or anything you want. These metal strips are programmed with a specific task (such as turning on or off bluetooth) which then communicate that with an NFC enabled device.

What can QuickTags do?

QuickTags can do anything your device can do. Unlike other NFC tags which are available, ours are different. QuickTags come with a free app which is installed to your device the first time you scan a QuickTag. Once the app is installed the QuickTags communicate directly with the app, allowing QuickTags to do anything the device is capable of doing.

Some examples of uses include:

  • Turn Bluetooth on and off
  • Connect to a WiFi network
  • Download a PDF menu or brochure
  • Visit a website
  • Turn the device off
  • Install/launch an app
Can QuickTags do...?

In short: yes. QuickTags can do anything your NFC-enabled device can do. Common actions can be written into our standard app. More bespoke actions (such as downloading a restaurant's menu, or opening a specific app) can be created on a bespoke basis. Please get in touch if you are interested in a bespoke app.

Do you do custom printing?

Absolutely. Most of our products can have a custom print placed on them. Some products aren't suitable for a custom print, such as the silicone wristbands. Other products can be sent as a blank canvas for you to print on yourself, such as the tickets or cards.

Do I have NFC on my device?

The majority of new, mainstream Android devices come with NFC. We currently only support Android devices (iOS does not have NFC capabilities on any devices).

If you are unsure if your device is supported consult your manual or drop us a message.

My BlackBerry has NFC, will QuickTags work?

Unfortunately not, no. Our app only works with Android devices. If you have a real need for a BlackBerry solution you can always get in touch to see if we can help.
