Shrink Sleeve Labels

Dress To Impress

You’ve put in the work to make a quality product, now dress it for success with a shrink wrap sleeve. Form-fitting heat sleeve labels create the dynamic, highly visible shelf presence customers will notice.  Create brand icons with unique container and sleeve combinations for your product to achieve maximum impact.

For multi-packs, cross merchandising and on-pack sample promotions, shrink sleeves offer production flexibility, reduce the need to store pre-printed preprinted packaging and save on labor costs. For product safety, shrink sleeve labels are available as stand-alone tamper bands or as a perforated tamper band incorporated into a full body shrink sleeve.

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.
