Custom Medical Labels

The information provided on medical labels is extremely important. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) makes it a requirement for each label to include:

  • Name and Place of Business
  • Intended Use
  • Clear Directions
  • Allergy Information
  • Side-effects

There can be no false information on the labels. Having false or misleading information can lead to lawsuits against the company. Another requirement of the labels is that they need to be durable. It should be able to withstand a lot of handling and stick onto surfaces for a long period of time.

While the guideline is very strict, it does help prevent the risk of taking medication. Taking the wrong dosage of medication can have very serious side-effects and in worse case scenarios, death. Patients need to always have clear and concise information on the product to assist them in using the product properly. Generally, everything on the label is written in layman terms to make it as easy as possible for the reader to understand.

Multi-Layer Labels

It can be difficult to provide all the information necessary on one label. In order to get around this issue, many businesses create multi-layered labels (also called expanded content labels). A hinge attaches the label onto a pressure-sensitive label. They don’t have any adhesive, which is why on pharmacy vials, the label will slightly stick out. This makes it easier to peel the label back and access the additional information.

Eye-Popping Design

While the information on the label is important, it’s also important to have a unique design. The design should make it easy for people to read the directions, but it should also be appealing. Having a unique shape or design can make it easier for people to notice your products.
