What should be the size of an NFC antenna given an operating distance?

I am dealing with a project about a PCB with NFC antenna. We are designing PCB now. Do anyone know about the size of an NFC antenna if we want it operate in 10 centimeters?

NFC Type 4 can operate within a distance of 10 centimeters. NFC, which is compatible with ISO 15693 that is capable of  NFC phones, can operate within a distance of 100 centimeters.    

The size of an NFC antenna is related to

  • The antenna size at the tag.
  • The size of the antenna at the NFC reader.

How can I indicate pin 1 on a SMT package footprint without silkscreen?

Sometimes when I order PCBs from a board house, I omit the bottom silkscreen for budgetary reasons. When I place surface-mount chips on the bottom of the board, I then end up with a footprint that doesn’t indicate the chip orientation. How can I clearly indicate pin 1 with the remaining layers in a way that will be clear but not significantly impact the PCB size or cause issues when soldering?
