Engineered for form and function in any sector

Full-body shrink sleeves offer far more versatility than common pressure-sensitive labels:

  • 360-degree design — Get 150% additional real estate to enhance your brand with more story, bigger graphics or custom embellishments on your can or bottle.
  • Increased performance and protection — Because we print art inside of the sleeve, the material itself protects your brand from moisture, friction and chemical exposure.
  • Tamper proofing — Extend the label over your container’s cap to protect your consumers and your product— and we’ll test multiple configurations and materials to find the right solution for you.

Cost varies — but you’ve got options

You’ll need a custom consultation to accurately estimate shrink sleeve costs, but these factors affect the per-label price:

  • Material selection — When choosing between PETG, PVC, OPS and PLA shrink sleeves, it comes down to price and shrink needs. Learn more here.
  • Container shape — Shrink sleeves can conform to anything, but it’s easier to engineer sleeves for generic containers. Greater complexity requires more engineering, driving up costs.
  • Digital vs. flexo printing — For large runs, flexographic shrink sleeve labels are cost-effective. Go digital for short runs or for VDP customizations.
  • Embellishments — They increase per-label costs, but cold foil stamping, custom finishes and UV metallic inks can also differentiate your product from competitors.
