3 Panel Back Label

Expanded Content Labels

3 Panel ECL Back Label

Back labels are traditionally found on OTC products such as cough medicine, creams, antacids, lotions, and other medications and personal care products that come in square, rectangle, or oddly shaped containers. These labels are resealable and can be opened multiple times without compromising the integrity  of the label. They can range in the amount of printable panels depending on the specifications and requirements of the packaging.   

Overview of Back Label ECL

Expanded content back labels (ECBLs) are an additional label that can be affixed to over-the-counter (OTC) products, including cough medications, to provide more space for regulatory information. These labels offer a range of design options, allowing for various shapes and sizes. ECBLs can be designed as fold-out leaflet style labels or booklet labels, and they are resealable to protect the label and its contents from damage.

 

Moreover, ECBLs provide ample space for companies to include essential drug and regulatory information. This enables consumers to make informed decisions regarding the usage, storage, and disposal of the product. Additionally, these labels are useful for incorporating marketing content and coupons, enhancing the consumer experience while ensuring the product’s safety and effectiveness.

Overall, ECBLs are an important tool for companies to provide detailed information about their products while ensuring consumer safety and satisfaction.
