SHRINK SLEEVE PRINTING FAQS
The right packaging and labeling not only helps customers identify your brand and quickly learn everything they need to know about your products, but it also helps establish your brand identity and convey a clear message of quality to consumers. Shrink sleeve printing offers many advantages over traditional labeling, so it’s important to know a few key facts about this printing technique and what it could mean for your products. Drew & Rogers has addressed some of the most frequently asked questions about the shrink sleeve printing process for your consideration.
Q: What Is Shrink Sleeve Printing?
A: With traditional printed labels, the labels affix to the product container itself. Shrink sleeves wrap around the entire product container and shrink to conform exactly to the shape of the container using heat, resulting in a smooth and seamless product label that covers the entire container.
Q: How Does Shrink Sleeve Printing Work?
A: Drew & Rogers uses high-gloss PETG film that offers the highest achievable shrink rate. Gentle heat application ensures the film completely conforms to the product container, offering a 360-degree display of high-resolution artwork, product information, and branded graphics.
Q: How Are Shrink Sleeve Applied?
A: After printing the shrink sleeve, we align it around the product container and use heat to shrink the sleeve around the container.
Q: Do Shrink Sleeves Work on Aluminum Cans?
A: At Drew & Rogers, beverages in aluminum cans are one of the most common shrink sleeve processes we complete for our customers. Our partial-sleeve shrinking labels can fit virtually any size metal can and conform completely. This ensures 360-degree branding with all required product information and easy recycling.
Q: How Do You Seal Shrink Sleeves?
A: Our partial sleeve labels fit perfectly around most product containers, leaving room for an easily accessible cap. Full-body shrink sleeves can encase the product container as well as the cap, complete with tamper-evident seals or perforation to ensure quality. It’s also possible to bundle multiple items together with our multi-pack shrink sleeves. With any type of shrink sleeve, we use a steam tunnel or heat shrink tunnel to seal sleeves completely.
Q: Is Shrink Sleeve Printing Cost Effective?
A: Shrink sleeve printing can potentially save manufacturers money they would otherwise spend on separate caps and tamper-evident seals. Shrink sleeves also protect consumers by ensuring they purchase authentic, high-quality products. They can also eliminate the need for separate front and back labels for some products.
Shrink sleeve printing allows any product manufacturer to create visually stunning, safe, and original product packaging for all types of consumer products.
