Instructional leaflets and package inserts are mainly found in medicine and cosmetics packaging. In the case of pharmaceuticals, legal requirements very precisely regulate the type of information, the arrangement and design guidelines of the insert. The information in the cosmetics sector is not quite as regulated but, here too, it is important to provide the user with a great deal of information.
In addition to the pure provision of information, package inserts are increasingly used to showcase the product and, if necessary, other products. The inclusion of QR codes create added value for the user and make the "leap" into the digital world of the manufacturer via smartphone.
The package insert is frequently regarded as a "necessary evil" that needs to be enclosed. Legal requirements demand the inclusion of more and more information in the tiniest of spaces, presenting a significant challenge for manufacturers. It is important to adapt the package insert to existing package sizes to match the production and printing design processes already in use.
Poor layout of information leads to miscommunication or a full disregard for the information provided which can lead to a breakdown in communication and undesirable outcomes.
Three major trends are emerging in this area. First, production must be flexible enough so that changes, such as legal requirements conveyed in many languages, can be implemented at any time, for any country, without any major effort. This can only be achieved by a maximizing layout efficiency and process automation.
The second trend is the integration of QR codes containing information about the product and its application with interactive functions that greatly enhance the consumer experience. Additionally, the use of sophisticated materials and folding techniques will gain in importance.
The package insert is also an integral element of a consistent customer experience with real added value and a multitude of branding options.
