Frequently Asked Questions

What are shrink sleeve labels?

Shrink sleeve is a 360-degree closed-loop film label (sleeve) that are supplied on rolls. The sleeves use heat during the application process, which shrinks the labels and conforms them to the container.

What are the advantages of shrink sleeves?

Shrink sleeves create shelf impact by offering 360-degree graphics, overall container coverage, and the ability to cover unique-shaped containers. The sleeves can also cover the cap of a container to incorporate tamper evidence. Multi-pack and on-pack sleeves can be used for promotional product bundling.

How are shrink sleeve labels applied?

Shrink sleeves are applied by using application equipment to place the sleeve onto a container (or placed by hand for low volumes). The sleeved containers then go through a hot air or steam tunnel that shrinks the sleeves and conforms them to the container.
