Top Applications for Shrink Sleeves

A shrink sleeve is a popular label type that can fit most containers as well as contour to unorthodox shapes. They are also full color and feature all-round (360°) design coverage. Printing on shrink sleeve films often involves many intricate tasks: priming, pre-pressing, printing, varnishing, slitting (for uniform edges), sealing and everything that leads to the final heat shrinking stage. The common printing processes that are used to manufacture shrink sleeves include digital printing, flexography and rotogravure. In addition, they can be produced in roll form or as cut labels.
