Shrink Sleeve Labels
With head turning graphics and a smooth finish, custom printed shrink sleeve labels have been shown to increase sales by 20% over traditional pressure sensitive labeling. Shrink sleeves are one of our most durable label products because it’s printed on plastic or polyester film material – perfect for products that encounter moisture or friction. Popular benefits of using shrink sleeves include:
- Full color, 360° design coverage.
- Fits most containers and can contour to special shapes.
- Moisture and abrasion resistant.
- No adhesive makes containers reusable.
Full Body Labeling Solution
Shrink sleeves can maximize the marketing space on your product allowing for more opportunities to impress your customers. Not only do they have a larger coverage than regular labels, shrink sleeves are a good choice for products that face humid or moisture heavy environments, such as showers and refrigerators. Since the graphics are printed on the inside of the sleeve, the design won’t be damaged regardless of friction or rough handling.
Although shrink sleeves can fit onto almost any kind of container, it’s important to note that shrinking a sleeve onto shapes that taper downward can be difficult because the sleeve won’t be able to grip the bottom of the container. Another consideration is the heat in steam tunnels because it can damage the container if it’s not made to withstand above a certain temperature.
Tamper Evident Seals and Combination Packaging
Shrink sleeves can also dual perform as a label and tamper evident seal. All we need to do is add a horizontal perforation near the cap. With shrink sleeves, your limited time and resources can be saved and used elsewhere since you won’t need to buy and apply two label products.
Combination packaging uses shrink sleeves to package and promote multiple containers together as one unit. Packaging different size and shape packages together is easier than ever with form-fitting shrink sleeves. After your promotion is done, any combo packs left over can be converted back into individual units with minimal effort – all you have to do is remove the external sleeve!
