Paper Pharmacy Bags

Pharmacy bag advertising is an effective and affordable way to reach consumers. With nearly half the population currently taking a prescription drug, the ads placed on these bags offer you repeated exposure through a reliable source.

The average pharmacy fills about 700 prescriptions a week, and almost all of these prescriptions are given to the client in a small plastic pharmacy bag, although more and more are switched to paper prescriptions. Ads are usually placed on the front, side and back of these bags and can vary in both size and function.

Pharmacy bags are 10 or 13 inches high, almost always 5 inches wide, and are printed with ads in 4 standard sizes. The ad sizes are as follows:

Standard: 4.5 inches x 2.75 inches
Executive: 4.5 inches x 4.125 inches
Economy: 4.5 inches x 1.375 inches
Complete: 4.5 inches x 7.5 inches

Using these different ad sizes allows advertisers to distribute a coupon directly to local customers, share basic company information, or even display a stunning full-page ad similar to those seen in newspapers or magazines.

Pharmacists are considered some of the most honest and ethical professionals around. A survey conducted by Gallup in 2016 reported that almost 70% of participants said that pharmacists were people with "high" or "very high" ethical standards. With the common perception that pharmacists are so positive, why wouldn't you want to link your brand of success to theirs?

Adults over 50 represent 74% of pharmacy customers and are the wealthiest of any age group. So the next time your company is looking to capitalize on the 50+ demographic in a cost-effective but impactful way, look no further than your trusted community pharmacy.

Before pharmacy customers buy prescriptions, the medication is placed in paper bags, which are usually stored in two ways: inside clear bags that hang on a shelf, or inside prescription containers that have holes in the cubicle. Here, we focus on the above method of prescription drug storage, and discuss three reasons why the size of the hanging prescription drug bags is important.

Rack level spacing
Some shelves for pharmacy hanging prescription bags are rigid and do not allow the space between the bars that suspend the bags to be altered. But there are also many models of racks that allow you to adjust the space of the bar.

If you use a rigid rack, the size of the bags you can use may be limited. On the other hand, if you can set up the bars at different levels, you will want to have the option of purchasing different bag sizes from your supplier. You have this option when you get pharmacy hanging prescription bags from us. Check out our bag sizes by visiting our Prescription Retrieval System Catalog.

Isolation of scheduled medications
Many pharmacies have a rule that prescriptions for two or more people should not be placed in the same hanging bag. However, even in pharmacies that are ultra vigilant about not dispensing the wrong medications, there may be some exceptions to the rule.

For example, if children in the same household need different medications, the medications can be placed in different paper bags that are placed in the same hanging bag. When there is a policy that allows medications for different people in the same bag, care should be taken to dispense scheduled medications, the use of which is carefully monitored to avoid poor results.

Placing a scheduled medication in a small bag next to the larger bag containing the rest of the prescriptions makes it easier for pharmacists to remember to provide information about the medication. The small bag and the large bag can be color-coded to show that they belong to the same collection or delivery order.

Medication recovery time
The size of the pharmacy's hanging prescription bags also affects the time it takes to retrieve the medications. Ideally, a pharmacy has the option of using several bag sizes to store prescription drug orders of different sizes.

Forcing multiple prescriptions into a bag that is too small can increase medication retrieval time, and you can also do this by placing prescriptions in large bags that require a lot of reach and grip to retrieve medication bottles or blister packs.
