Shrink Sleeve Labels, Wraps, and Bands

Shrink sleeves on bottles

With head-turning graphics and vibrant colors, custom printed shrink sleeve labels have been shown to increase sales by 20% over traditional pressure sensitive labels. 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 sleeve labels include:

  •       Full color, 360° design coverage.
  •       Fits most containers and can contour to special shapes.
  •       Moisture and abrasion resistant.
  •       No adhesive makes containers reusable.

Add Visual Interest To Products With Full-Body Labels

Shrink sleeve labels 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 they 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, Shrink Bands, 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. If you don’t want to completely rehaul your labels but would like to protect product contents, an excellent option is to use shrink bands which are strips of film that are shrunken to the cap and neck of a container. Shrink bands can be perforated with a ‘V’ or ‘T’ cut to allow for easier removal.

Shrink sleeve combo with two bottlesCombination packaging uses shrink sleeves to package and promote multiple containers together as one unit. Packaging different size and shape containers together is easier than ever with multi-pack shrink sleeves. After your promotion is done, any multi-packs left over can be converted back into individual units by removing the sleeve.
