Epson colour label printers provide on-demand pharmaceutical labels that improve the visual recognition of vital information. They’re flexible, cost-effective and put you in control of your production needs.


Medical devices

Companies that produce devices or solutions used for medical purposes:

  • Patient safety requires colour codes and images
  • Highly variable colour content
  • Precise fine print text and barcodes
  • High-value products
  • Bespoke made in many cases
  • Need for enhanced branding
  • Part tracing is essential

Clinical trials

An Investigational Medicinal Product (IMP) is defined as a pharmaceutical form of an active substance or placebo, being tested or used as a reference in a clinical trial. In such trials, there is a need to produce drugs in very small batches that require appropriate bespoke labelling, to include:

  • Legible information
  • Eliminate mistakes
  • Greater flexibility and production speed
  • Easy to make changes as regulations change
  • Enhance branding

Pharmaceutical labels

  • Print fine details like small fonts and barcodes in high resolution to improve legibility

  • No compromise of quality and readability of text on the labels, even the smaller fonts

  • Print the product image on the label to improve traceability and minimise errors

  • Improve workflow and cost efficiencies

  • Shorten inventory times through enhanced flexibility and speed

  • Automate processes to avoid human error

  • No need to use a pre-printed stock of labels, which could be a long and manual process

  • Enhance company branding
