Shrink Sleeve Labels Benefits

The benefits of shrink sleeve labels are numerous, but can be summed up easily: Increased Sales.

It is difficult to argue with the versatility of custom printed packaging and security seal labels rolled into one with added visual branding options. From full body shrink sleeve labels to tamper evident shrink bands to multi-pack or promotional shrink bands, we can provide you with the tools you need to help increase sales, market share, and consumer confidence in your brand.

  1. Visual Branding. Shrink sleeves can be custom printed with full color photographic images that wrap 360 degrees around the entire container. Without the space limitations of conventional labels, shrink sleeve labels allow for greater creativity in presenting brand identity, specialty promotions and product information. Revitalize an old brand by showing consumers that a product they thought they knew is worth another try.
  2. Security Seal. A full body shrink sleeve can also perform as a tamper evident security seal on a product container, eliminating the need and the expense of multiple labels and packaging processes.
  3. Consumer Confidence. Add an extra layer of confidence in your product by using the inherent transparency of shrink film to create a clear, unprinted window section that allows consumers to view the contents inside the package.
  4. Durability. Shrink sleeve labels are reverse printed on transparent shrink film, sealing the inks safely behind 40-70 microns of clear film. This means your graphics are protected from the scuffing, marring, or tearing traditional labels are exposed to during transport or while on the store shelves, ensuring your product packaging goes to market in pristine condition.
  5. Sustainability. Shrink Sleeves are available in several environmentally friendly shrink films, including the fully biodegradable EarthFirst® PLA, or polylactic acid, a corn based biopolymer. Market your product as sustainable and appeal to an ever more environmentally conscious public.
