Informational Fix-a-Form®

Booklet Labels enable customers to multiply the area used for communication on their packaging several times over and provides unlimited potential for cost savings, waste reduction, and increasing efficiencies and sales.

Increased legislation and consumer demand for product information can present many packaging problems for pharmaceutical, agrochemical and other product information-driven industries. The available space on a standard label is normally too small for mandatory text such as dosage instructions, contra-indications or product descriptions. The result is usually information-cluttered packaging – and typically illegible – on the carton or outer packaging, as well as an insert inside the carton.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ensuring you're always informed.

The booklet labelling system, Fix-a-Form®, is designed to create extra space for product usage instructions or promotional messages. As with standard self-adhesive and pressure sensitive materials, they are supplied on-reel and may therefore be applied by using standard label application equipment. They can equally be applied by hand if required.

We have created Fix-a-Form® labels for all product shapes and sizes so we are able to advise what the best format and specification would be for your packaging. Fix-a-Form® booklet labels can be die-cut so you get a shape to reflect your packaging design. We can produce Fix-a-Forms® as small as 40mm in diameter.

Our trained sales advisors can help you to select the right construction to suit your needs. There are no set sizes, folding patterns or standard shapes restricting your choice. Each product is tailored to compliment your host pack or container. We will also provide you with plain handmade dummies so that you can see how they will look on-pack. You will also be able to get a feel for how your Fix-a-Form® label will work for you.

Fix-a-Form is a combination leaflet-label, which means there is the cost of the leaflet + label + combining the two. A Fix-a-Form® can carry many times more information on pack than an ordinary label can, which means the cost per page of information using Fix-a-Form® can easily be lower than for a standard label. Fix-a-Form® saves on labour costs compared with slower/manual leaflet insertion into boxes or onto bottles using elastic bands. Fix-a-Form® often eliminates the need for a carton, which is another cost-saving.

Our labels are normally supplied on-reel. There are no limits to how many labels can be on a reel – this will be determined by the maximum roll size that your label applicator can accommodate. Generally, the minimum core size is 76mm, so as a rule, you can expect the finished reel to be anywhere from 100mm to 400mm total diameter. This will also depend on the label applicator – 300mm or 350mm is generally standard. The rewind direction can be specified when ordering.

We have an in-house prepress department that can supply a works map document in a suitable format once an order has been confirmed. This works map shows you each page and how they relate to each other. You can then place your artwork into this document and send it back for processing. This will normally be in a standard prepress open file. Industry-standard instructions regarding electronic file specification apply.

Generally, four or six colours can be printed on the base label and four on the leaflet, but more can be achieved if required.
There are a whole range of optional extras, including hot foil blocking, varnishes, latex scratch-off panels, Braille, randomised variable winning numbers or combinations spread through the printing process, inserts or removable stickers, fluorescent inks and heat ‘n reveal panels.
There may well be no minimum order quantity but there are basic costs that are involved in producing a job and this is likely to affect the unit cost. Likewise, there is virtually no upper limit on how many Fix-a-Form® labels we can produce.

The lead time for producing Fix-a-Form® labels varies according to the complexity and volume of the job. A general guideline of 15 to 20 working days ex-factory can be expected once your artwork has been approved.
