Value Added Packaging

Shrink sleeves are the ultimate billboard for your brand. Not only is shrink a label, but it’s also an advertisement. They use vivid colors and graphics to surround containers and packaging, which demand attention on any shelf.

What Are Shrink Sleeves?

Shrink sleeves are one of the fastest growing labeling methods in the packaging industry. Their ability to fit complex contours and provide 360 degrees of branding space helps them deliver shelf differentiation. They’re constructed from a shrinkable film that “shrinks” when introduced to an elevated level of heat. Shrink sleeves are typically applied by hand or machine.  Once the sleeves have been applied to a container, they are run through heat sources like heat tunnels and steam tunnels to be shrunk.

Why Shrink Sleeves?

Consumers make purchasing decisions rapidly while looking at shelves packed with hundreds of bottles, containers, and packages.  For this reason, your brand must have an impact.  And shrink sleeves serve as the perfect vehicle to convey your message while wowing your audience.
