Labels have a variety of applications and can be used at many stages of product production. Depending on the requirements, the labels must combine several characteristics: the design must meet all the demands of both the product and the customer; the information must be in compliance with the legal and regulatory requirements; the materials should be selected according to the usage conditions and the application.
Labels for flexible packaging
One of the most common types of packaging in the field of veterinary and zoo products are flexible packaging. They are used for a wide range of products - from food and fodder for pets and farm animals to veterinary medicines.
It is no coincidence that the combination of flexible packaging and self-adhesive labels is widespread. In this way it is possible to use the same type and size of packaging for different products. Only the adhesive labels are changed to give clear information about the product, its purpose and composition.
Labels for plastic surfaces
Plastic jars and boxes of different sizes are a suitable way to store and distribute various veterinary medicines. When properly designed, they can assure that the product has not been opened. They are delivering certain level of protection from environmental conditions and allow the product’s preservation for a defined period of time after opening.
Plastic packaging in the veterinary medicine is also available for animal cosmetics such as shampoos for dogs and cats, powders, sprays and others, as well as in nutritional supplements. Self-adhesive labels for plastic surfaces must take into account the surface of the material to which they will be adhered, its shape and the conditions under which the product is expected to be stored and used.
Printing on material for Sachets for powdered products
Not so common type of packaging is sachets, which allow the product to be distributed in equal doses and allow the quantities that will not be used immediately to remain tightly closed. Therefore, sachets in veterinary medicine are often used as packaging for soluble antibiotics for animals. Depending on the composition of the material, sachets can protect the product from various external conditions, and preserve its quality for a long time.
Printing directly on the material for the sachet allows seamless incorporation of the required information into the design. It is also possible that the sachet has a more artistic design and presents products such as vitamins for animals in an attractive way.
