Free White Paper on Pharmaceutical Labels
In the pharmaceutical, healthcare, biotech and medical technology industries, labels tackle a wide variety of tasks. They display information for doctors, pharmacists and patients, and they increase the attractiveness of over-the-counter products. Also, they help manufacturers to make their production processes transparent and traceable and protect themselves against product counterfeiting. To handle all these tasks and many others in the best possible way, labels are available in a large number of variants.
In its new white paper „Pharmaceutical Labels: All-rounders for High Demands“, August Faller provides a comprehensive overview of materials, technologies and design options for adhesive labels. For example, readers can find out which type of label is suitable for which kind of use, how the individual components can be ideally matched to one another and which factors are decisive in the production of labels....read more

Faller trainees get involved in Waldkirch residential and nursing home
For 10 years our trainees have been involved in the campaign "Social commitment" for institutions in the region. This year, they supported the St. Nikolai Spitalfonds residential and nursing home, including the restoration of park benches.

Faller offers new DryPeel Flag Label for reliable documentation
August Faller has developed a new label. The DryPeel Flag label consists of three material layers and is particularly suitable for documentation and simple product marking. The label can be removed in partial layers without leaving any residue or adhesive. It enables doctors, for example, to safely and accurately document the use of an anaesthetic or a vaccine.
The middle layer of the DryPeel Flag Label is easy to separate from the base label. More part labels can also be removed for descriptions: for marking injection vials in medical technology, the pharmaceutical industry or laboratories. These can be designed in such a way that they adhere to the container and stand out like a flag. The user can mark them easily and legibly with a ballpoint or transparency pen....read more
Faller presents environmentally-friendly multi-page adhesive label
The sustainability of packaging is gaining in importance in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. To react efficiently to this situation, August Faller has developed a multi-page adhesive label for glass, plastic, paper and cardboard containers – without the usual film lamination.
The label is made of paper and can be safely and completely recycled – making a significant contribution to more environmentally-friendly pharmaceutical packaging. The innovative idea was realised at the Faller factory in Schopfheim, southern Baden-Württemberg, which specialises in the production of labels....read more
August Faller wins FINAT Award
This year, the coveted FINAT Award in the "multi-layer labels" category goes to August Faller. The packaging specialist convinced the jury with its Faller info label. The multi-page info label offers sufficient free space on the smallest possible surface – and it can be handled easily by manufacturers and users alike.
The need for information on pharmaceutical packaging is increasing rapidly, because as well as legally-prescribed information, labels must also contain more and more application aids for doctors, pharmacists and patients – often in the form of pictograms or multi-lingual versions.
Faller executives beat their way through the wilderness
Cooperation based on trust, an open communication culture and a strong community are an important part of the secret of our success. In order to keep these factors alive, our managers from all countries and locations recently met to exchange ideas outside of their everyday working lives.
However, this meeting was very unusual: the entire team spent 2 days together in the wilderness. Instead of calculations, planning and budget rounds, the program now included tracking, making fires, or determining plants, animal tracks and mushrooms....read more
