SHRINK SLEEVES

ABOUT SHRINK SLEEVES

Shrink sleeves (sometimes known as heat shrinkable sleeves or shrink-on labelling) are now a standard production process for many everyday items including sauces, soft drinks, juices, spirits and cleaning products.

In recent years, shrink sleeving has been widely adopted across a large number of market sectors including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, household and cosmetics.

In simple terms, a printed shrink wrap or film is is wrapped tightly over the contours of the 3D object it is covering.

They provide a 360 degree packaging design solution with extreme shelf impact.

OUR SHRINK SLEEVE PROCESS

Your designs are reverse printed onto a special substrate and if desired, we can then apply satin or matt treatments to the front facing surface.

After carrying out pre-print distortion tests and checking bar-codes, we use a professional solvent based sleeve maker along with our sleeve maker to ensure that the final seams are of a production standard.

In our London studio, shrink sleeves are applied by our experts in a professional shrink cabinet. This ensures that we always get consistent results, especially with trickier shapes and higher volumes.

Our shrink cabinet precisely focuses steam to provide a perfect shrink every time!
