A proven provider of shrink sleeves

There’s a learning curve to designing, manufacturing and heating perfect-fitting shrink sleeves, which is why you’ll get the best results by working with an experienced shrink sleeve provider like Resource Label Group.

We know how critical each step in the process is, so we can guide you the whole way. That’s why we start with a 3D scan of your container so we can design a sleeve that fits it like a glove. This also lets us spot problems before they become costly errors.

Shrink Sleeves vs. Pressure-Sensitive Labels

Formed to fit their 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
  • Greater durability because the label is printed on the inside
  • Better security with tamper-evident seals that extend up the neck of the container
  • Waterproof quality makes them perfect for moist or humid environments
  • Require less lead time than pressure-sensitive labels
  • More sustainable options
  • More cost-effective over time
  • Reduce your packaging costs by buying the same color containers and using sleeves to simulate different colors

The Crown Jewel of Sustainable Packaging

To get sustainable packaging right, you need to consider the container, the sleeve, and any other parts as a whole in order to select the best materials. RLG can help you consider all the factors at play and choose wisely so you get it right the first time.

You may be surprised to learn that PET (polyethylene terephthalate) sleeve film is actually a more eco-friendly material than paper liners. But it’s true! 1.2M PET film is 48% thinner than 40# paper and 92 gauge is 60% thinner than paper liners, allowing you to get up to 27% more feet from each roll.

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

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