Shrink Sleeve Labels

Shrink Overview

About Shrink Sleeves products for pharmaceutical packaging

Shrink sleeves are a mono-axial oriented plastic film that is seamed together to making a tube (sleeve). The sleeve slips over the product, when heat is applied to the sleeve, the sleeve will shrink down and conform to the bottles shape. A variation of a shrink sleeve is a tamper neck band which seals the cap of bottle and provides a tamper evident solution. Shrink sleeves are available in full body, full body with tamper evident, half body and tamper neck bands. Full body shrink sleeves are an excellent choice for manufactures that utilize custom containers with curves that are hard to label. The shrink sleeve will conform to the shape the container and accentuate the containers design. The combination of a high quality printed shrink sleeve and custom bottle can produce stellar results for brand looking to stand out on the shelf.
