The Benefits of Shrink Sleeve Labeling

Shrink sleeve labels offer many benefits to the manufacturer – especially when using irregular shaped containers. Traditional packaging and labeling methods may not be possible with an irregularly shaped container. A more specialised and controllable labeling machine is required for these containers.

Shrink sleeve labels offer these benefits:

  • Full product branding
  • Ability to create tamper-evident packaging
  • Integration with an existing packaging line
  • Perfect for irregular shaped containers
  • Scratch resistant
