A proven provider of shrink sleeves

Get the best results by working with an experienced shrink sleeve provider like Resource Label Group. We know the value of each process step — and can guide you the whole way.

We start with a 3D scan of your container to design a sleeve that fits it like a glove. This initial scan also identifies problems before they become costly errors.

Shrink Sleeves vs. Pressure-Sensitive Labels

Formed for function, shrink sleeves have a number of advantages over pressure-sensitive labels:

  • More room for branding, thanks to the 360-degree surface
  • No adhesives or liners needed, making them easier to recycle
  • Flexible enough to fit around any shape of package
  • Label printed on the inside delivers greater durability
  • Better security with tamper-evident seals that extend up the neck of the container
  • Waterproof quality perfects labels for moist or humid environments
  • Require less lead time than pressure-sensitive labels
  • More sustainable options
  • More cost-effective over time
  • Reduced packaging costs by buying the same color containers and using sleeves to simulate different colors

The Crown Jewel of Sustainable Packaging

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) sleeve film is actually a more eco-friendly material than paper liners.

PET sleeves, combined with washable ink on a PET container, make for a truly circular plastic solution. This crown jewel of sustainable sleeve options meets the recommendations of the Association of Plastics Recyclers.

While you may consume a little more film going the shrink sleeve route, you’re also bypassing adhesives and liners. You end up with less packaging in the end, which lowers transportation costs and occupies a smaller footprint in warehouses.
