New Packages

Braille-Embossed Cartons and Labels

March 7, 2013

Cortegra, a Fairfield, NJ provider of packaging solutions, has added Braille-embossed cartons and labels in compliance with impending European Union legislation mandating that secondary drug packaging must have label information in Braille for sight-impaired customers.  Using special tooling, Cortegra embosses the Braille in an uncontracted Braille system, which means the words are spelled out, instead of in a contracted or chain system, in which one character can represent an entire word. Tooling does not damage the carton.  More info: www.cortegra.com
