Its not everyday you get asked by one of the most sumptuous hotel brands to bring their ideas to life. We jumped at the chance to show our solution prowess.
Key cards are used in hotels day-in-day-out, they should open doors if made properly. However they all look the same. Rosewood wanted something different. We can make shaped cards easily, this one needed to have contactless technology and be an NFC key card. We love technical challenges!
Pantone ink. Four designs. Smaller bespoke designed RFID antenna. Matt finish. Curveball's aplenty. The main challenge was making the antenna small enough to fit, but large enough to give a good read range. After much testing we had fettled the solution. We loved it. They loved it. Euphoria all round. Those of you lucky enough to stay, will know lots of toil went into these micro key cards.
Fresh challenges await. Hybrid RFID cards a particular favourite, we have merely scratched the surface of what is possible with this technology.
