Shrink Sleeve

Shrink sleeve graphics have revolutionized product sales for everything from beverage containers to cosmetic products. The eye-catching 360° graphics create great customer appeal and the packaging industry has rapidly embraced them as a way to stand out in a highly competitive market.

Many industries are converting to the 360° graphics that custom shrink sleeve labels provide. Extremely popular in the food and beverage industry, printed shrink sleeves are also used to decorate pharmaceutical products as well as personal care and cosmetic items.

Some of the advantages to using shrink sleeve labels include:

  1. The ability to use 360° graphics over the entire container allows for many versatile design options and the high-end, eye-catching aesthetic provides for great visibility from every angle.
  2. Shrink sleeves can be used for tamper-evident sealing.
  3. Shrink sleeve labels allow for complete customization from container shape to product messaging.
  4. This decorating option offers the ability to produce both short run and longer run applications in a cost-effective manner.

What is the shrink sleeve application process?

Labels can be applied manually or through an automatic application process. The labeled container then travels on a conveyor into either a steam or heat tunnel where the heat then shrinks the label to conform to the container. Mystic offers both manual and automatic label applications as well as steam and hot air tunnel processes. We can also offer tamper-evident banding on container closures.

Types of Shrink Labels

There are various “types” of shrink labels, depending on what you are trying to achieve with your packaging.

Custom Shrink Sleeve Labels (Partial Body)

Custom Shrink Sleeve Labels allow you to use sleek graphics on your containers in areas where an adhesive label would not be possible. Especially on unconventional bottle contours and angles.

  • Shrink Sleeves only cover a portion of a container
  • Shrink Sleeves are usually placed on a container’s body, allowing the lid/cap to be sealed separately
  • Shrink Sleeves shrink to fit the contour of your bottle, making an unusual shape sexy and appealing

Custom “Full Body” Shrink Labels

Custom Full Body Shrink Labels cover your packaging from top to bottom, maximizing your valuable marketing area.

  • Incorporate perforations onto the portion covering the lid, making a tamper-evident seal
  • Complete container coverage, allowing you to decorate your product with 360° graphics
  • Custom Shrink Labels can be used to re-brand your products with an eye-catching, updated look

Promote your products with combo band shrink labels

Proper product marketing is essential to the life of your products. Shrink labels offer awesome alternatives to helping you with product promotion. Combination packaging allows you to package and promote multiple containers together as one unit. This is ideal for:

  • Buy One / Get One promotions
  • Complimentary trial sizes
  • Product launches
  • Seasonal promotions
  • Liquidation of slow-moving merchandise
  • Stimulating sales during slow cycles

Staying Green with Shrink Sleeve Labels.

It’s important that we continue to reuse and recycle. Since shrink labels do not use adhesive, they are able to be removed, making your container reusable. We are also able to supply shrink sleeve labels made from fully biodegradable, plant-based PLA material.

Save money with low cost, short-run digital shrink sleeve labels

Yes, we can provide medium to long run shrink labels on both the Flexo or Rotogravure presses, but for your short-run needs, digital is the only way to go. Digital printing allows for you to:

  • Keep your inventory levels at a minimum.
  • Order low quantities at a low total cost.
  • Prototype your new packaging at an excellent price.
  • Meet tight deadlines.
