Patriotic Pharmacy Bags: A Summer Marketing Opportunity for Pharmacies

U.S. residents widely celebrate 11 major holidays a year, with Christmas, Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day, Easter, and Independence Day (a.k.a. Fourth of July) rounding out the top five occasions that are celebrated by the most people. In 2017, Easter and Mother’s Day have already passed us by, leaving businesses who perform seasonal marketing campaigns to prepare for the next big holiday on the horizon: Independence Day.

Using Patriotism to Promote Your Pharmacy

The Fourth of July is more than a significant date in our nation’s history; it’s a festive interlude in the middle of summer when people make purchases in celebration of American patriotism. But a business doesn’t have to sell fireworks or party supplies to get in on the action.

Wikipedia amusingly notes that Independence Day is “best known for fireworks and barbecues”. From a commercial standpoint, it’s true. The 45% of Americans who claim to celebrate the Fourth of July spend nearly $700 million on fireworks alone. They also commonly buy products that feature celebratory themes or are connected to businesses that make a point of calling out the holiday in a patriotic fashion.

With the help of promotional, patriotic pharmacy bags from Drug Package, LLC, your pharmacy can be among the businesses that profit from calling attention to the holiday that most symbolizes our nation’s independence and the floodgate of international success that followed after we courageously set out on our own.

Patriotic Pharmacy Bags: What do You Get?

We offer a great selection of bottle size pharmacy bags that feature rich, pre-printed, patriotic graphics in our nation’s most classic patriotic colors: red, white, and blue. We also offer a unique bag design that features the official seals for different branches of the U.S. military.

All 12 bag designs come in the same dimensions — 5” x 2” x 10” — and feature a square bottom that supports up to 6 pounds, or a bottom that has the traditional, one-seam seal. Examples of products you can dispense in these patriotic pharmacy bags include but aren’t limited to:

  • Blister cards
  • Prescription vials
  • Foodstuffs in small containers
  • Bottles of drinkables
  • OTC medicinal products
  • Cosmetics
  • Small products near the point-of-sale
  • Behind the counter goods

The type of patriotic pharmacy bags you choose and how your pharmacy uses them is up to you. Drug Package, LLC, is here to provide you with readymade bags your business can use to help work its seasonal marketing magic. With the Fourth of July roughly a month away, now is a great time to start creating marketing synergy between your pharmacy’s products and its patriotic passion.

RX Prescription Bags: Expand Your Brand With Health Observance

Every business that sells something has a target audience. For pharmacies, the audience is exceptionally broad. Almost everyone occasionally gets sick and needs a prescription.

However, when a pharmacy’s marketing team “segments” the audience, specific patient populations emerge, and branding opportunities are developed around the populations’ most defining characteristics.

One way that pharmacy patient populations are defined is by disorder or illness. To increase brand appeal with these populations, a pharmacy can dispense medicine in RX prescription bags that feature national health observance themes that signify awareness of specific disorders and illnesses.

Below are 12 examples of health observance themes — one for each month of the year — along with image links for each theme to inspire graphics that are printed on the bags (note: images are subject to copyright, these are just examples). For more options, also listed are additional health observances by month.


  1. January: Thyroid Awareness Month
  • Images for thyroid awareness
  • Other health observances in January: cervical health, birth defects, and glaucoma


  1. February: American Heart Month
  • Images for heart awareness
  • Other health observances in February: low vision, prenatal infection prevention, and children’s dental health.


  1. March: Kidney Awareness Month
  • Images for kidney awareness
  • Other health observances in March: bleeding disorders, trisomy, and colorectal cancer


  1. April: Oral Cancer Awareness Month
  • Images for oral cancer awareness
  • Other health observances in April: autism, irritable bowel syndrome, and sports eye safety


  1. May: Arthritis Awareness Month
  • Images for arthritis awareness
  • Other health observances in May: food allergy, hepatitis, and mental health


  1. June: Alzheimer’s Awareness Month


  1. July: Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

Pharmacies have a duty to care for their customers.

Drug Package can print bags that feature your pharmacy’s brand along with colors and symbols associated with the themes.

Pharmacy-Bags‘Tis the season to be jolly, even for healthcare facilities, where most people associate more of a serious and straight faced insinuation when thinking about this industry.
