Twinsert pharmaceutical leaflets – Twin-Serts

Twinsert pharmaceutical leaflets, also known as Twin-Serts or Twin-Leaflets, are a type of folded leaflet commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry. These leaflets are designed to provide detailed information about a medication or medical device to patients and healthcare providers.

Twinsert leaflets are called “twin” leaflets because they combine two separate leaflets into one package. This allows for the inclusion of more information in a smaller package size, which is beneficial for pharmaceutical companies looking to reduce packaging costs and environmental impact.

Braille Labels

Pharmaceutical braille is a tactile writing system used to label medication packaging for individuals who are visually impaired or blind. Pharmaceutical braille labels are designed to provide important information about the medication, including dosage, administration instructions, and warnings, in a format that can be easily read and understood by individuals with visual impairments.

Pharmaceutical braille labels are typically created using a special printing process that embosses the braille text onto the label material. This process creates a raised surface that can be felt by touch, allowing individuals with visual impairments to read the label with their fingertips.

Inverted Hanger Labels (IVHL)

The inverted hanger feature allows the label to hang upside down, making it easier to read the information on the label when the medication is stored on a shelf or in a medicine cabinet. This design also helps to conserve space, as the label can be hung on a peg rather than taking up valuable shelf space.

Inverted Hanger labels for medication are typically made from high-quality, durable materials that are resistant to moisture, light, and other environmental factors that can affect the quality and effectiveness of the medication. They are also designed to meet industry regulations and standards for medication labeling, ensuring that patients receive accurate and comprehensive information about their medications.

NFC labels are becoming popular for creating unique brand experiences before and after the sale. They allow customers to learn more about the product or brand by sending the customer to a product-specific landing page. This white paper will examine the use cases of NFC labels as a promotional labeling tool and explore two industries – healthcare and wine – where RFID technology is driving value.
