Limitless Design Possibilities Using the Gamut of Colors and Finishes

Sleeve Seal shrink labels are printed using a 10-color rotogravure press that produces the most beautiful product labels of the highest quality available in the packaging industry.

Ten-color printing offers vibrant colors and custom finishes for a variety of looks limited only by your imagination. Four-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 sleeve labels are 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 shrink label printing processes give you complete quality control at the most competitive prices available.

High Speed Shrink Sleeve Labeler Color Palettes

Rotogravure shrink label printing is the flexible packaging industry’s highest quality printing process.

We have refined and engineered this 100-year-old technology to create the fastest, most consistent shrink label printing with the highest level of image reproduction. Rotogravure printing utilizes lower cost inks but delivers more ink to substrates, resulting in beautiful, saturated colors.

Color options are limitless—from metallic to fluorescents—with PMS spot color accuracy. The rotary method of applying ink to the film in the rotogravure process renders your art in high definition with no degradation of image quality despite running in massive volumes.

In addition to the benefits of low-cost high production runs, accuracy and repeatability of quality printing, rotogravure is ideal for shrink sleeve printing since it provides the precise control required to print on the thinnest of shrink films.

Shrink Label Printing & Design Services

Sleeve Seal Shrink Label Printing

Shrink label printing goes beyond the standard printing process, requiring a higher level of finesse—the ability to create two-dimensional art for a three-dimensional surface. Sleeve Seal’s experienced staff provides this expertise as well as timely proofs to ensure your label looks its best.

Shrink Label Printing Design

Once your design is complete, Sleeve Seal provides either a digital or printed proof so you can review and refine your design before any ink is applied to our high-quality substrate materials.

Our 10-color shrink label printing capacity allows the following ink and finish options for amazing visual design and ultimate impact:

  • CMYK
  • Metallic colors
  • Fluorescents
  • Pantone spot colors (PMS)
  • Pearlescent finishes
  • Matte varnish
  • Gloss varnish

We print on PETG, OPS and PVC film materials with up to ten colors on our state-of-the-art rotogravure presses. We adhere to the strictest quality control standards from start to finish for the best results. From the production of raw materials, the engraving of high-speed precision printing cylinders, to the final output, we meet our customers’ requirements for price and delivery time.

Through the use of thinner substrates, we embrace sustainability while simultaneously realizing cost savings. With the same high-end look as other films, we are able to offer labels as thin as 20 microns—half the thickness of standard sleeve labels.

Our in-line CCD line scanner checks every meter of printed film for material imperfections, ink density, print alignment and proper color match. This high speed scanning prevents unwanted waste—keeping efficiencies high and costs low.

Shrink Label Material Manufacturing

Sleeve Seal Shrink Label Printing

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 microns that can be printed using our 10-color rotogravure press or 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
  • 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 remains a “proven” performer for shrink sleeves. Excellent optical clarity, high shrink rates at lower temperatures and durability make PVC film a popular choice.

PETG (polypropylene terephthalate)

  • Up to 75% shrink
  • Starts to shrink at roughly 160°f
  • Environmentally friendly—conforms to PET recycling standards

PETG is a more scuff resistant film option with a higher gloss and the best optical
clarity—all factors found in the best-looking labels on the shelf. Its natural heat resistant properties allow PETG film to be pasteurized, and its ability to be recycled has made PETG a new industry favorite.

OPS (oriented polystyrene)

  • Up to 73% shrink
  • Softer feel
  • Slower shrink rate better suited for contoured containers

OPS shrink film’s less dense quality offers a unique feel. Consistent finish and thickness result in quality printing with high shrink rates. The “touch” or feel of OPS film makes it a good choice for squeezable containers.
