What is Shrink Sleeves?
Shrink sleeves is a relatively new type of label and is quickly gaining importance in the market. They’re printed on a digital or flexographic press, with text on the inside of the shrink sleeves, then slipped over a container and tightened around the container using heat (heat-shrunk). The label then conforms to the surface of the container.
Many manufacturers today are turning to shrink sleeve applications for their packaging needs. It's resistance to scuffing and moisture, easy detection of tampering, and ability to fit on almost any container give it various advantages over other label applications, making it a widely popular choice amongst many different product lines.
Custom printed digital and flexo shrink sleeves from FlexoPartners Inc. are successful in a wide range of markets largely due to their aesthetic appeal and functional versatility. These highly attractive labels are printed on a flexible shrink film that reduces in size through the application of heat. Once the film shrinks, it conforms tightly to the shape of the container or product, creating a sleek label and product package. With a 360 degree display of brilliant artwork and text, custom shrink sleeves give products maximum aesthetic impact and marketing exposure.
