What Should You Consider Before Heat Shrink...

Heat shrink sleeving machines apply a heat shrink sleeve to the neck or body of your product and then heat it so it shrinks to provide a tamper-proof tight seal. Heat shrink labels can be applied to all different types of container shapes servicing numerous industries, such as pharmaceutical, beauty, and food.
Flexible heat shrink sleeve labels will be placed over the neck of your product by the sleeving machine. The product will then pass through a heat tunnel which reduces the size of the label. When finished, your product will have a sleek finished label with 360° coverage.
When applying heat shrink sleeving it is important to pre-distort your design. This step is essential to having easy-to-read labels. You should also avoid complex shapes and realistic imagery as the distortion of shrinking the label can affect the images. Your label will be printed on a flat 2D sleeve which is then converted to a 3D cylinder which means you will have a seam in your label. Considering where the seam is placed, avoiding small text and detailed imagery, will guarantee a cleaner label for your product.
Heat shrink sleeving is beneficial for tamper-proofing products. As the label has adhered to your product, it must be removed to open, meaning it will be clear if your product has been tampered with. This anti-theft application protects your product leaving you with peace of mind. Heat shrink sleeving does not use adhesive allowing for your product to be recycled and reused. Heat shrink sleeving provides full coverage of your product to enhance brand visibility and to guarantee all important information is printed on your product.
