SHRINK LABEL PRINTING WITH 10 COLORS
The Sleeve Seal integrated shrink label printing process produces the most visually striking products on the shelf.
Our 10 color Rotogravure press allows us to shrink label printing of the highest quality, producing the most beautiful product labels in the packaging industry.
10 color printing offers vibrant colors and custom finishes for a variety of looks limited only by your imagination. 4-color CMYK, plus PMS spot colors, with gloss, matte or pearl finishes can be combined in a single run to create labels that stand out from the competition on overcrowded shelves.
Shrink sleeves are also a more durable, scuff resistant, water resistant alternative to other labeling options. A quick visit to any retailer will reveal shrink labeled products, with everything from full body labels to holographic tamper bands produced by our integrated process. Our start-to-finish manufacturing and printing processes give you complete quality control at the most competitive prices available.
Shrink Label Material Manufacturing
Sleeve Seal has quickly become a leader in shrink label printing and substrate manufacturing. We manufacture PETG, OPS and PVC film materials as thin as 20 micron that can be printed using our ten-color rotogravure press or can be purchased as clear substrate. We embrace sustainability through the use of thinner sleeve films.
Sleeve Seal Label Film Types:
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
- Up to 63% shrink
- PVC starts to shrink at roughly 130°F
- Lower costs due to widely available raw materials
PVC is the most common shrink film type in the market today. Raw materials are readily available due to applications in other industries and PVC has historically been a “proven” performer for shrink sleeves. Excellent optical clarity, high shrink rates at lower temperatures and durability are qualities that make PVC film a popular choice.
PET (Polypropylene Terephthalate)
- Up to 75% shrink
- PETG starts to shrink at roughly 160°F
- Environmentally Friendly – Conforms to PET recycling standards
PET is a more scuff resistant film option with a higher gloss and the best optical clarity – all are factors in the best looking labels on the shelf. The natural heat resistant properties allow PET film to be pasteurized. PET is a new industry favorite due to its ability to be recycled.
OPS (Oriented Polystyrene)
- Up to 73% shrink
- Softer feel
- Slower shrink rate better suited for contoured containers
OPS shrink film is less dense film and therefore offers a unique feel. Consistent finish and thickness results in quality printing with high shrink rates. The “touch” or feel of OPS film makes it a good choice for squeezable containers.
