Shrink Sleeves

Shrink sleeves can differentiate your product from that of your competition. They are versatile and allow you to cover the entire product with attractive to attract attention and shout on the shelf.

Products that typically fit into this category would include premium alcoholic beverages and sparkling wines, sauces and marinades, mayonnaise, milk shakes, flavored milks, drinking yoghurt, fruit juice, bubble bath, hand cream and body lotion.

Shrink sleeving entails placing a pre-printed plastic sleeve onto a container and then applying heat to the plastic film (typically between 40 - 70 micron) so that the film shrinks to the shape of the bottle.
