Shrink Sleeve Label Design and Application

As you read about shrink sleeve labels, you may wonder how we create the labels and put them on your product. Here’s how that process works:

  • Design: Our in-house design staff uses 3D software to show you how your custom-printed shrink wrap label will look on your product. They collaborate with you to create the label’s design, including its colors and layout.
  • Printing: Once our staff and your team finalize the design, we begin printing the labels while they lie flat. Once we print them, we bring them to the shrink sleeve label applicator.
  • Application: We apply shrink sleeve labels by seaming and shrinking them to fit your product’s shape in the applicator. Then the labels go through the applicator’s shrink tunnel and slip onto your product. After we complete the application of the shrink sleeve labels, we deliver them to you so you can ship them where they need to go to reach your customers.

Which Products Work Best With Shrink Wrap Labels?

Shrink wrap labels often work best for bottle sleeve printing processes and food and beverage labels. They also work well for liquor bottles, beer cans and bottles, and cannabis product packages. Why do they suit these products’ packages? Products in these industries often hit the market in bottles, cans, or containers that require tightly applied labels to catch customers’ eyes and convey regulatory information. These containers often have long shapes that fit the way shrink film labels are printed and seamed. Ultimately, shrink sleeves’ film material fits cans, bottles, and containers tightly while displaying all relevant brand and regulatory information.

What Are Shrink Sleeve Labels’ Benefits?

Shrink wrap labels offer a variety of benefits, including the way they allow you to tell your brand’s story through labeling. When you shrink labels onto your products, you increase the label’s space for branding and information by 150%. With that increase in real estate, you can provide as much information as your customers need. The extra space gives you the chance to explain your company’s message while also showcasing directions for your product’s use. Another benefit is their printing flexibility. When you create shrink sleeve labels with our design team, you can choose between digital and flexographic printing options. We help you determine which option best fits your label. Once you choose your printing option, we print the label on the inside of the shrink sleeve to prevent abrasions that could make your label less readable. Overall, shrink film labels provide extra space, abrasion resistance, and flexible printing options for your products’ packaging labels.

Do Shrink Sleeves Boost Products’ Shelf Appeal?

Yes, they do, if they’re paired with the right products. Consider a beverage bottle. A traditional die-cut label would lie flat against the bottle and give its manufacturer limited space to talk about their product and brand. On the other hand, a shrink film label hugs the bottle’s shape and provides space to display the brand logo, product usage directions, and regulatory information. Shrink sleeves conform to your product shapes to tell your brand’s story. Because of their shapes, shrink wrap labels boost beverage bottles’ shelf appeal. When the label conforms to a bottle’s shape, the logo, colors, and relevant information stand out to consumers more than they would if the bottle had a simple die-cut label.
