Expanded Content Labels


What are Expanded Content Labels (ECL's)

Extended or expanded content labels also known as ECL’s, booklet labels, wrap around labels, multi-ply labels, piggy back labels, leaflet labels, foldout labels, or hinged label are the perfect cost effective multi-page solution suitable for a wide variety of packaging types that require multilingual and additional regulatory information. As a pioneer in the expanded content label space, CCL Healthcare has lead the way in innovation for decades producing the largest selection of formats and configurations in the pharmaceutical and life sciences secondary packaging industry available. This means that no matter the container shape, size, or material, CCL Healthcare can design and manufacture a custom expanded content label solution for you. We offer countless configurations and value added features that can be integrated into expanded content labels. Expanded content labels are available in leaflet or booklets styles. They can be removable or resealable depending on your requirement.

Pharmaceutical Expanded Content Label Products

ECL’s not only display large amounts of information to meet regulatory demands but they can be printed with full graphics that will produce the stopping power needed on retail shelves. The combination of a booklet or leaflet streamlines the packaging process, eliminating other components which increases productivity, lowers cost, and can be an environmentally sustainable solution. ECL’s can be dispensed on standard labeling equipment, this means no re-tooling.

Looking for a solution for multiple languages in one label? ECL’s are your solution. ECL’s can provide up to 184 pages of content space on the label, allowing room for directions for use, instructions for use, multiple languages and promotional campaigns.  ECL’s are the perfect solutions for OTC or RX medication that require extra consumer content, directions for use, education, or promotions. This diversity allows the label to be placed on small, large, round, square, curved, or uniquely shaped bottles, cartons, and containers. They are cost-effective, secure, and user-friendly.
