Shrink Sleeves Basics

In today’s competitive market, presenting your product in a distinctive and innovative manner can make all the difference. Enter the world of shrink sleeves!

But what exactly are shrink sleeves? Read “Shrink Sleeves Demystified: A Guide to Enhancing Product Packaging” for an overview of this packaging solution that not only adds aesthetic appeal but also offers practical advantages.

From material to application

At their core, shrink sleeves are crafted from film and seamlessly turned into a tube. Once placed over a product, they’re subjected to heat until they fit snugly over the container, akin to a second skin. This method provides an expansive canvas, giving brands a 360-degree space for branding.

Shrink sleeves are also especially appealing for products that require multi-lingual directions or expansive labeling. Moreover, their versatility extends across various sectors, including:

  • Specialty foods
  • Beverages
  • Household chemicals

Understanding shrink sleeves regulations

Manufacturers often raise concerns about using shrink sleeves if a product is subject to regulatory requirement. In fact, shrink sleeves can be great for these types of products because there’s more room to print required information, including:

  • Warnings
  • Multilingual directions
  • Tamper-evident packaging

Shrink sleeves are actually an optimal method to ensure both regulatory compliance and a seamless user experience.
