Industry-Leading Expanded Content Labels

ECL Printing Overview

At CCL Healthcare, we are committed to innovation and excellence in developing packaging solutions. We specialize in producing expanded content labels that meet the highest industry standards.

What Are Expanded Content Labels (ECLs)?

Extended or expanded content labels are also known as booklet, multi-ply, wrap-around, leaflet, foldout, piggyback or hinged labels. They offer a versatile and cost-effective solution for packaging requiring extensive multilingual and regulatory information.

As a pioneer in extended content label development, CCL Healthcare has a long history of innovation. We offer the widest range of ECL formats and configurations in the pharmaceutical and life sciences secondary packaging industry. No matter your container size, shape or material, we can design and manufacture a custom booklet label solution suiting your needs.

Our ECLs come in various configurations, like leaflet or booklet styles, and can include numerous value-added features. Whether you need them to be removable or resealable, our booklet labels are fully customizable. 

Pharmaceutical Expanded Content Label Products

Our expanded content labels display enough information to meet all regulatory demands. They can be printed with full, eye-catching graphics to grab attention on retail shelves. Combining a leaflet or booklet with your label streamlines the packaging process by removing other components. This increases productivity, lowers costs and supports environmental sustainability. ECLs are also compatible with standard labeling equipment, thus eliminating the need for re-tooling.

ECLs offer a convenient labeling solution when multiple languages must be included, providing up to 180 pages of content space. They are ideal for over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription (RX) medications requiring extensive consumer information, directions for use, educational content or promotional material. 

ECLs are a secure, cost-effective and user-friendly option. Their versatility allows them to adapt to various container sizes and shapes. They can be placed on small, large, square, round, curved or other uniquely shaped bottles and containers.
