Shrink Sleeve Labels

Build Your Brand

Shrink sleeve labels are a great way to differentiate your brand on shelf whether it’s a new product launch or the revitalization of an existing product line. Using shape and color, the labels provide 360º billboard graphics on contoured containers for dynamic shelf presence.


High-Impact Functionality

Full surface coverage allows consumer product manufacturers to inventory a single white colored bottle, replacing container colorants with full body shrink sleeve graphics.

For multi-packs, cross-merchandising and on-pack sample promotions, shrink sleeves are a cost effective solution compared to traditional paperboard carriers and boots with overwraps. They offer production flexibility versus storing preprinted packaging and in some applications, additional labor cost savings.

For tamper evidence, full body sleeves protect consumers, your brand and your reputation as well as additional surface area for promotion and branding.


Print Flexibility
