Carton Sleeves

Carton sleeves are a unique approach to folding cartons, offering shorter run capabilities using our flexo presses to print and die-cut in-line. Great for limited or smaller runs. Available on 16pt white coated one-sided or two-sided.

Shrink Bundling Film

Shrink bundling film is an economic and efficient use of printed poly film to gather and contain products in a tight package while still displaying the product and the brand. Shrink bundling is economic because it eliminates the waste of bulky disposable packaging. It can be used for store shelves, freezer cases, bulk, and other display methods.
