Pharma packaging

We design and produce pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging. The primary task of pharmaceutical packaging, besides protecting the product content, is to communicate precise details about the ingredients, inform consumers about usage through mandatory text, and also contribute to creating brand awareness.

Under the pharmaceutical category, you will find packaging for medical devices, dietary supplements, health foods, and pharmaceutical products. We offer medicine glass, plastic bottles, and aluminum bottles. Additionally, we also offer tubes, pill boxes, pill bottles, dropper bottles, as well as boxes for medical devices. It is possible to have pharmaceutical packaging delivered in both standard and custom designs.

Requirements for pharmaceutical packaging

There are strict requirements for pharmaceutical packaging, and it is therefore important to be aware of the regulations in the field. The rules for marketing pharmaceutical packaging have been developed to ensure that consumers use products correctly and safely. Therefore, the labeling on the packaging must also be indicated by indelible, legible, and visible letters for safety reasons.

Our product solutions are carefully developed for the products that need to be packaged. If you have a product that requires special packaging, including regulatory requirements for storage, safety, and product protection, we can provide packaging that is approved for your specific product. When choosing packaging for pharmaceutical products, it is also important to facilitate the user’s administration of the medication and thereby increase compliance.

At Packwise, we are specialists in providing pharmaceutical packaging that matches your product content. Therefore, you are in safe hands with us as a supplier of your pharma packaging. You can also read about our packaging for CBD products and how we comply with the authorities’ regulations.

Compliance and user-friendliness

When developing pharmaceutical packaging, compliance, and user-friendliness are essential. Patients must take their medication as prescribed to achieve the intended therapeutic effect, so it is important that this is reflected in the packaging and design. Consider how the days of the week are indicated on birth control pill packs, allowing women to keep track of which days they have taken the pill. Another example is how some pharmaceutical products have an easy-to-grip screw cap, enabling a person with Parkinson’s disease to open it.

Designing your pharmaceutical packaging

It should be easy for the consumer to decipher the benefits of choosing your product over another on the shelf. The easiest way to differentiate yourself from competitors is through a well-thought-out and visually appealing packaging design. It is possible to appeal to selected segments through the packaging’s visual identity and design language. Therefore, you should consider which target audience you want to communicate with – it has a significant impact on the outcome of your packaging design.

We work strategically to ensure that both form, function, and visual appearance speak to your product’s target audience. In addition, we take pride in ensuring that your packaging’s visual identity aligns with your company’s values and DNA. You can read our blog post on how to create aesthetic and functional packaging for vitamin pills.

High safety and quality

The quality of packaging is vital in the pharmaceutical category. At Packwise, we are always in dialogue with raw material manufacturers, factories, as well as testing and certification institutes to continuously update quality procedures. Our factories and production meet at least the ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ensuring that your pharma product packaging complies with all requirements and regulations in the field.

In addition to being quality assured, it is also important that pharmaceutical packaging has a high degree of safety. This applies to packaging design and development, production, transportation, and commissioning. Pharma packaging on the market is often special solutions developed with a specific product content and target audience in mind. The products are subject to different safety requirements according to the product content. The same safety measures also apply to chemical cleaning agents, where child-resistant packaging is the preferred and safest choice.

Design and production of pharmaceutical packaging are therefore subject to some legislative guidelines. However, it does not prevent a good user experience from being considered. There are many possibilities within pharma packaging, and we always start with your wishes and requirements when developing new packaging for medicine or health products.

Requirements for pharma packaging

It is important to be aware of the requirements for pharma packaging. Pharmaceutical packaging is subject to some rules to ensure that users use the products correctly and safely. For safety reasons, the labelling on the packaging must be in indelible, easily legible, visible letters. In addition, it is essential that patients can take the medicine as prescribed and ordered so that it works as intended. At Packwise, we consider ease of use when designing your medicine packaging. We follow the legal requirements for your pharmaceutical packaging. Indeed, there may be specific requirements for storage, safety and product protection depending on your product content. Naturally, we will develop your packaging in accordance with any regulatory requirements that may apply to your product packaging.


What to consider when designing pharma packaging?

When designing pharma packaging, there is, as mentioned, a lot to take into account. We have put together a guide on how to design your pharma packaging in terms of usability, shape, colour, font and legibility, sustainability and safety:

Ease of use

For consumers to benefit from your product and want to invest in it again, it is essential that the packaging is user-friendly. It must be easy for consumers to use the product correctly. User-friendliness must therefore be taken into account when designing and developing packaging. This is of course also true for pharma packaging such as medicine bottles, medicine boxes etc.


The shape of your pharma packaging has an impact on how customers perceive your product and brand. In addition, some packaging shapes are better suited to some products than others. It is therefore important that you consider the shape of your pharma packaging.


Some of the most popular colours in pharmaceutical packaging design are white, blue, red, green and brown. Colours have a psychological effect on people, so it’s worth considering which colours to include in your product’s packaging design. Colours have a big impact on the look of your packaging. You should therefore carefully consider what you want to signal with your product and your brand. Colours can also help capture consumers’ attention and are an effective way to stand out from your competitors.

Font and readability

The choice of font is one of the basic elements in the packaging design of pharma products. As mentioned earlier, it is a legal requirement that the labeling on the packaging must be in indelible, legible, visible characters. It is therefore essential to choose a font that is easy for consumers to decode.


Developing sustainable packaging solutions is becoming increasingly popular. There is a wide range of materials that can be said to be more sustainable than conventional plastics in some respects. You should consider whether you want your packaging to be more sustainable by, for example, being made from recycled plastic. This can benefit both the environment and your business, as many consumers value sustainability. 


It is important that safety is at the forefront when developing packaging for pharma products. We want to help you with that at Packwise. The primary purpose of pharma packaging is to keep the pharmaceutical product safe until the expiry date is exceeded.
