The SCOOP ON EXTENDED CONTENT LABELS

With certain industries, the regulatory content that is required on your label can often seem impossible to fit. This is where extended content labels come in!

Extended content labels are a great way to stay within strict FDA rules or industry regulations without overwhelming your consumer with a text-heavy label. They are also ideal for small products that cannot fit all of the necessary information on their label parameters. In addition to the extra room that that they provide, they can also be used to hide promotional codes or offers for companies who wish to entice their consumers.

Summit Labels is one of few label printers who have mastered extended content labels, and is pleased to offer two different options.

The first option is a PeelBack label. A PeelBack label is essentially a double-layered label, where the top layer can be peeled back to reveal more content underneath.

The second option is a Wrap-Around label. A wrap-around label is very similar to a peelback label, but instead of it being a label on top of a label (double layered label) it is a long label that wraps around itself. The top layer can then be peeled back to reveal an underlying layer with additional content.

EXTENDED CONTENT LABELS 

  • What method is better: the Peelback or Wrap Around method? 
    The Wrap Around method is more cost-efficient, faster to produce, and provides more room for content. However, some label application machines require a bit of adjusting to accommodate the longer length. 
  • What prevents a consumer from peeling the label right off the container? 
    When using an extended content label, a 'stopper' is used to help prevent a consumer from peeling the label right off the container. Essentially, it is an area without the peelable release agent.
  • What is the smallest size font that can be used for extended content?
    Typically a minimum font size of 6 is needed, however, we recommend you consult your specific regulatory body.
