Title: Mask construction for profile correction on an RFID smart label to improve print quality and eliminate detection

Abstract: An RFID with uniform profile. A compressible mask layer or cutout mask layer provides a uniform profile despite the presence of an RFID integrated circuit and antenna. The uniform profile allows clear overprinting and hinders visual detection of the RFID transponder.
