Shrink sleeves are labels constructed from a heat shrinkable film material, that rather than using adhesive, shrinks around the container as heat is applied.
Shrink sleeves are printed flat and seamed into tubes. The tube slides over the container, heat is applied (usually the product goes through a heat tunnel), and the sleeve shrinks down to hug the container’s shape. By using this type of labeling, it allows graphics to be displayed around the entire container. The sleeves provide scratch, fade, and moisture resistance. Presto Labels produces sleeves on PETG, OPS, and PVC in 40-70 microns. We offer full body sleeves, combo packs and tamper-evident perforated sleeves, in either rolls, or individually cut to fit your application.
Our 13” 7-color digital press prints Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Orange, Green, Violet, and opaque white ink. According to Pantone®, 7-color process extends the press’ color gamut, allowing it to match roughly 90% of Pantone® spot colors. We added Mosaic software to our press, which provides 4-color process variable printing of text, images, backgrounds, numbering, barcodes, and data to make each shrink sleeve unique! Spot matte or total matte, metallic, fluorescents and cold foil embellishments are also available.
If your order is cost prohibitive on a digital press due to high quantities, or if your shrink sleeves need to be wider than our digital press can handle, we will run the job on our HD 10-color 22”, UV cured, Servo driven Mark Andy flexographic press. Our printing processes allow us to run volumes as small as 500 shrink sleeves with no maximum.
