Shrink sleeves that maximize your shelf impact
Shrink sleeves — also known as shrink sleeve labels — are high-quality, high-impact labeling products. They maximize branding real estate to make a bigger splash on the shelf.
On the surface, shrink sleeves may seem simple:
- Using our HD flexographic printing capabilities, we print your graphics on shrink sleeve material.
- We then use our shrink seaming equipment to convert this material into shrink sleeves.
- When the shrink sleeves reach you or your co-packer, the sleeves are dropped over your container and sent through a shrink tunnel.
- The end result is an eye-catching, 360-degree label.
But after decades of experience in manufacturing shrink sleeve labels, we know how much testing, planning, and expertise go into getting shrink sleeves right.
We’ll help you navigate your shrink film options (PETG, OPS, PLA, and PVC) to select the right one for your container. And to prevent unplanned shrink distortions, we conduct pre-commercialization analysis and grid distortion testing. This allows us to create shrink sleeve prototypes for you to test in your own shrink tunnel. Because we take responsibility for how your shrink sleeves appear on the shelf, we can send field tech engineers to your facility to help address any application problems.
To get started on shrink sleeves with serious shelf impact, contact our team and send us a sample of your container.
Sleeves for any product, container, or industry
We print, seam, and deliver shrink sleeves that provide full-product branding for any container — trigger bottles, jars, cans, etc. If required for your product, we can incorporate a perforation into your sleeve as a tamper-evident feature.

- Household chemicals & cleaners
- Food & beverage
- Personal care
