Benefits of shrink-packaging

Shrink packaging offers a versatile, cost-effective packaging solution for several reasons.

  • The materials used are strong, yet flexible, and provide effective protection while making the product tamper-proof.
  • Shrink packaging is transparent, making its clear surface suitable for retail and wholesale display, and ideal for general marketing purposes.
  • Shrink packaging is an ideal low-cost option and relatively inexpensive packaging solution for your product.

Stretch Sleeves

Stretch Sleeves are ready-to-use labels that are stretched and then applied to the container without the use of adhesives or heat. The natural elasticity of the material is all that is required to hold them in place.

Stretch sleeves are beautiful, eco-friendly, and cost-efficient; using stretch sleeves can save up to 50% compared to standard shrink technology. The low-density materials used, go further which is why its carbon footprint is said to be four times smaller than that of the average shrink sleeve. Additionally, new technology allows application to bottles that could only be labeled with other label types in the past.

Shrink Packaging

Shrink packaging is the process in which sheets of transparent plastic film are wrapped around a product to form a solid, weather-resistant packaging layer. It typically refers to plastic films that have been pre-heated, stretched, and then cooled prior to use, creating flat sheets of plastic film.


Shrink wrap is a packaging process used to wrap products in a special type of plastic film. When these shrink packaging films are then applied to a product and re-heated, the plastic film begins to shrink and wrap itself around the shape and form of the product. Most bottles, cans, cartons, and boxes are ideal for shrink wrapping. It is also possible to shrink wrap many other sorts of products. This type of packaging has several advantages:

  • Product protection
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Less use of raw material per pack
  • Product visibility


While shrink wrap is applied loosely around products, stretch wrap is a highly stretchable plastic film used to wrap product and keep them tightly bound. In this case, the plastic is not re-heated, only stretched around the product.
