Professional Shrink Sleeve Labels

Shrink labels, also known as shrink sleeves, are a type of label made from heat-shrinkable plastic materials such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride), PETG (polyethylene terephthalate glycol), or OPS (oriented polystyrene). These labels are designed to be applied to products or packaging and then shrunk to conform tightly to the shape of the container using heat.

Key Features & Characteristics of Shrink Labels:

Heat-Shrinkable Material: Shrink labels are made from plastic materials that have the ability to shrink when exposed to heat. This property allows the label to tightly wrap around the contours of the product or packaging, providing full-body coverage and a seamless finish.

360-Degree Branding:

Shrink labels offer full-body coverage, allowing for 360-degree branding opportunities. This means that the entire surface of the container can be utilized for branding, product information, promotional messages, and decorative graphics, maximizing visibility and impact.

Tamper-Evident Packaging:

Shrink labels provide tamper-evident packaging solutions by securely sealing the product or packaging. Once the label has been shrunk onto the container, it cannot be removed without showing visible signs of tampering, providing consumers with assurance of product integrity and safety.

High-Quality Printing:

Shrink labels can be printed using various printing methods, including flexographic, gravure, offset, or digital printing. This allows for high-quality, vibrant graphics, and detailed designs to be printed on the labels, enhancing brand visibility and product presentation.

Applications of Shrink Labels

Beverage Industry:

Shrink labels are commonly used for labeling bottles and cans in the beverage industry, including water, soft drinks, juices, alcoholic beverages, and sports drinks. They provide vibrant, eye-catching graphics and help differentiate products on store shelves.

Food Packaging:

Shrink labels are also used in the food packaging industry for labeling containers, jars, trays, and pouches. They are suitable for a wide range of food products, including sauces, condiments, dairy products, snacks, and frozen foods.

Health & Beauty Products:

Shrink labels are utilized in the health and beauty industry for labeling cosmetics, personal care items, skincare products, and toiletries. They enhance product visibility, communicate brand identity, and create a premium packaging experience for consumers.

Household Products:

Shrink labels are used for labeling household cleaning products, detergents, disinfectants, and pet care items. They provide product information, usage instructions, and branding elements, while also offering tamper-evident packaging solutions.

Shrink Labels Application Process

The application of shrink labels involves several steps:

Label Design and Printing:

The label design is created, and the artwork is printed onto the shrink film using the desired printing method.

Label Application:

The printed shrink labels are applied to the product or packaging using specialized equipment, such as shrink sleeve applicators or labeling machines. The labels are positioned around the container or packaging and held in place temporarily.

Heat Shrinking:

The labeled products or packaging are then passed through a heat tunnel or oven, where they are subjected to heat. The heat causes the shrink film to contract and conform tightly to the shape of the container, creating a smooth, wrinkle-free finish.

Cooling and Inspection:

After heat shrinking, the labeled products are cooled to set the shrink film in place. They are then inspected for quality control to ensure that the labels are applied correctly and securely.

Shrink sleeve labels offer a versatile and effective labeling solution for product packaging, branding, and marketing needs across different industries. With their full-body coverage, vibrant graphics, tamper-evident packaging, and 360-degree branding opportunities, shrink labels help brands enhance product visibility, communicate brand identity, and create memorable consumer experiences.
