Designed for the highest demands: Our pharmaceutical packaging

Apotheke mit Pharmaverpackung


Due to the legal regulations to which pharmaceutical packaging is subjected, our demands in this segment are particularly high. Auch hier können wir unsere Kunden optimal in diesem herausfordernden Prozess unterstützen. Here, we can also optimally support our customers in this challenging process. We succeed in this not only because of our strong understanding of the quality of our products, but also because of the technology we have at our disposal.

Whether lasered first-opening protection or consecutive numbering: thanks to our punching and laser technology as well as digital printing, we are the perfect partner to implement this challenge in a high-quality and cost-efficient manner. In addition, we work exclusively with HACCP-certified manufacturers.

The requirements for pharmaceutical packaging are diverse:

  • Packaging for pharma articles must be marked with an individual and consecutive number, a first-opening protection (for example in the form of an adhesive seal) and a scannable matrix code.
  • In addition, the sensitive products must be protected from unauthorized access by children.
  • In turn, seniors should have easier access and handling.
  • Pharma packaging must also list the most important instructions in Braille.
  • The HACCP concept ensures compliance with the high quality standards for safe food.

We cover all of these factors at packaging warehouse - with our special packaging offering for the pharmaceutical industry.


deutsches Arzneimittelgesetz


Until the establishment of the German Ministry of Health in 1961, parts of the pharmaceutical law were governed by various regulations. It is since 1961 that there has been a special pharmaceutical law, which has since defined all these legal regulations in a uniform manner.

The original version of the law initially dealt only with the registration of pharmacological products. In order to keep the German pharmaceutical industry competitive on the global market, extensive testing of products by the Federal Health Office was dispensed with. It was not until 1964 that pre-clinical as well as clinical studies became mandatory. A universal guideline according to which products must be tested was adopted in 1971.

As a result, the German Drug Law has gradually been subjected to increasingly stricter rules. For example, the indication of an expiration date has been mandatory in Germany since 1986, or the printing of the drug name in Braille since 2004. In the course of time, further criteria were added, which mainly affected pharmaceutical packaging. Today, for example, they must meet the following criteria:

  • Printing of all information in understandable language as well as in durable and well readable font
  • Marking with approval, batch and individual serial number
  • Deposit of all information in a scannable code
  • First-opening protection



The printing of the drug name in Braille has not only been specified in the AMG as a mandatory feature of pharmaceutical packaging since 2004 - the specification of the drug name in so-called Braille is also prescribed in the European Human Code. In order to guarantee a durable, good and fast feel, the letters must be printed in a high quality.

The quality of the material plays a major role here, because Braille is easier to read on smooth surfaces than on roughened surfaces. The height of the embossing points as well as their distance from each other also affects how well the information can be analyzed.

Pharmaverpackung für Rentner


Because the need for pharmaceuticals increases with age, seniors make up a disproportionately large share of consumers for pharmaceuticals. For this group, it becomes increasingly difficult to handle drug packages as they age and their motor skills become less efficient.

Due to declining eyesight, it is also becoming more and more challenging to read the information correctly and therefore to remove the medicines from the packaging in the correct dosage. Therefore, packaging for medicines for the elderly should be barrier-free, safely accessible and meet the following criteria:

  • easy to open and close
  • well readable information
  • no risk of injury due to sharp edges
  • easy removal of individual dosages

In addition, the imprint of an RFID, NFC or QR code can take on several functions in the future: Scanning with a smartphone or via digital displays not only provides information such as the date of the initial opening or the number of quantities removed: Seniors can use the codes to have the package insert and other information played out or read aloud to them individually.



Pharmaceutical products are very diverse in their properties and can be produced in different aggregate states, for example:

  • in powder form
  • in tablet form
  • in liquid form
  • as cream

In addition, there are drugs for external use such as special patches or bandages. What they all have in common, however, is that a high level of barrier resistance is required to protect these sensitive products from external influences. Among other things, pharmaceutical packaging ensures that products do not become contaminated or contaminate other items. At packaging warehouse, we always focus on barrier resistance, no matter what type of packaging is concerned. Our pouch materials meet high requirements for the following barriers:

  • Oxygen barrier
  • Water vapor barrier
  • Aroma barrier
  • UV barrier

This means that your items are optimally protected from external influences with our pharmaceutical packaging and can be shipped safely.

Transportschutz für Arzneimittel




Our shipping boxes in high grammage and thickness perfectly protect your medicines and medical devices in case of shocks, pressure or falls.

Another special feature for pharmaceutical products is their storage. Unlike conventional consumer goods, cryogenic cooling may be required. In order to optimally protect the products even at temperatures around -250 degrees Celsius, it is important to choose the right packaging. We will be happy to explain to you in a consultation which materials provide your products with optimum protection - together we will find the best solution.



At packaging warehouse we use offset and digital technology  to print our packaging.  Digital printing is a particularly good and efficient way of meeting special requirements for pharmacy packaging. This is because, unlike offset printing, digital printing does not require any aids such as printing plates. The file to be printed is read electronically, for example from a storage medium, which has various advantages:

  • Printing requires only a few preparation steps.
  • Changes to the printed image are possible at short notice.
  • Due to the absence of a static printing plate, the process is in general cheaper and faster.
  • Digital printing delivers a very high-quality print result and can display fonts with high contrast and good readability.

The decisive advantage of digital printing for pharmaceutical products, however, is the high degree of customizability. Due to the legal regulation of the Drug Law, the individual, consecutive product number must be printed on each package. Unlike offset printing, digital printing makes it easy to customize this consecutive number for each pharmaceutical package - and it's absolutely cost-efficient, even for small quantities.

Packaging Warehouse: Our special packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical industry


LARGE CHOICE OF MATERIALS: All our pharmaceutical packaging is available in different materials and designs, which you can select and combine yourself in the configurator. So you decide for yourself which type of paper (pulp, recycled, grass, natural or chromo cardboard) and which additional protection (protective varnish, protective laminate) best suits your application.

FREE SIZES AND FORMATS: Among other things, we have specialized in implementing individual customer wishes exactly. In our configurator, you can determine the right format and size for your area of application.

FIRST-OPENING PROTECTION: We have various customized solutions to implement the mandatory first opening protection. By using a laser, it is possible to integrate a perforation as a pre-determined breaking point at which the pharma packaging is opened. Protection can also be achieved with an adhesive label that acts as a seal.

BRAIL LETTERING PRINTING: The state-of-the-art machines we use are capable of printing type markings in Braille in the specified standards in terms of character spacing and embossing height. Through a final quality check, we ensure that there are no spelling errors. Our materials with particularly smooth surfaces additionally provide a low-barrier for people with visual impairments.

HIGH QUALITY PRINTING: Our digital printing technology enables durable and highly readable type with sharp edges and high contrast. The printed products are also highly customizable and allow for cost-effective printing of a consecutive serial number. We offer double-sided four-color printing in all Euroscale color tones - with outstanding qualitative results.

For this purpose, they are stuck over the opening of the pharmaceutical packaging as a seal. Our roll labels made of foil are particularly suitable for this purpose. They can not be peeled off in one piece and therefore provide very good security.

The lettering on labels must be high-contrast and easy to read - throughout the entire period of use. Printed in different colors, they help the elderly in particular to differentiate their medicines and minimize the risk of confusion.
