The possibility of pad printing in RFID tag antenna manufacturing is investigated. Passive UHF RFID tags were printed on flat and on convex surfaces with two different polymer thick-film silver inks. The effect of the ink and substrate material properties on tag antenna performance was examined. The goal was to provide information which is needed in adapting the pad-printing technique in RFID tag manufacture. The results show that pad printing is suitable for tag manufacturing on flat and on convex surfaces. The curvature of the substrate did not significantly affect the tag performance. It was more important to take into consideration other substrate properties, ink characteristics, morphology, and printing parameters. The best practice is to take these matters into consideration in the initial tag design process to ensure proper tag performance at the desired frequency.
