Shrink Sleeve labels are flexible branding labels that can adapt to the shape of the product on which it is applied. These are mainly used as bottle labels with a 360-degree viewing surface that is appealing from all directions. Moreover, bottle labels withstand moisture and friction to ensure a long shelf life. The shrink labels are made from PVC, PET-G or some special polyolefin films. These are typically around 40 microns thick.
Our 10 colour Flexo printing press can create fabulous visual effects on the bottle labels even in very low volumes at competitive pricing. We add further value to shrink-sleeve labels or bottle labels by integrating a holographic stripe running across the bottle label which secures the products against counterfeits.
Shrink Sleeve packaging is a first-choice option for a variety of industries ranging from food and beverage bottles to personal products and pharmaceutical and several others.
- Flexible Packaging: Manufacturers can use shrink sleeve labels as Bottle labels on blank bottles cutting the cost of directly printing and avoiding loss in case of low sales.
- Tamper-evident: A holographic tape is added on the sleeve which makes it tamper-evident. This gives an assurance to the consumers that the product is safe and genuine.
- Durability: The shrink sleeve labels are very durable as they are reverse-printed. They will not be damaged during the transport.
- Branding: Shrink sleeves have a lot of space for branding due to their wraparound character. Exclusive colours and designs can be printed for impact.
