Extended Content Labels
Superior Quality Extended Content Labels
As a packaging designer, marketer, or brand designer you understand the importance of catching a prospective consumer’s attention. You’ve done your research and crafted a message that best represents your brand. And now, you are ready to design a labeling solution that will appeal to your target audience. Your goal is to clearly represent your brand’s value and have your product stand out on the retail shelf.
But what can you do when confronted with product packaging that is diminished in size? How can you get your brand messaging across, maintain shelf appeal, and meet regulatory requirements? The answer is simple, Extended Content Labels (ECL).
When packaging products are small and label space is limited, Extended Content Labels (ECLs) provide the necessary space for additional graphics and copy through the use of multiple pages. Often referred to as booklet labels or expanded text labels, they are used to increase the amount of space available for text and graphics to provide consumers with more information.
Extended Content Labels (ECLs) are commonly found on Health and Beauty products where packaging profiles are small and it is difficult to find space for government mandated health and safety information.
Reliable Extended Content Labels
Adcraft Labels’ Extended Content Labels (ELCs) are the ideal solution when you need to include instructions, information, warnings, and/or multiple languages on your product. The front panel of the packaging is directly visible to the consumer and can be in full color. Peel open the re-sealable front panel and reveal the back and base panels where the user will find more detailed information.
Extended Content Labels (ECLs) are constructed as a multi-ply label or as a booklet label which combines a pressure-sensitive label and a loose, folded outsert. This technology brings all the benefits of multi-page labeling and growth in new product categories, while providing the space for required information.
There are several options for manufacturing ECLs. The most efficient method is in-line production. Choosing a manufacturer that has single-pass printing and finishing capabilities streamlines the process, eliminates the possibility of mismatched components, ensures brand consistency, and reduces your bottom line. These in-line produced ECLs are available in 3- and 5- page booklet formats greatly increasing the content area. ECLs most importantly are customizable and can be designed to suit any packaging profile.
