Shrink sleeves are a great packaging option. They maximize the amount of surface space available for an impactful packaging design. However, there are a couple items to consider before taking the leap from labels to shrink sleeves.
Quantities: If you require a low volume of labels, or packaging, shrink sleeves may not be the best option. Shrink sleeves are generally more cost-effective with higher print runs of at least a few thousand.
Container: Shrink sleeves are a great packaging solution to an unusually-shaped container. A bottle with ridges will hold a shrink sleeve without an adhesive much more effectively than an un-contoured bottle.
Product/Container Quality: The material used for shrink sleeves is clear. A quality container or product will be enhanced by a shrink sleeve. Oppositely a shrink sleeve may highlight imperfections of a lower quality product.
Processing/Shrinking: The process of hand shrinking sleeves can be labor intensive. It’s important to consider the costs of this vs. having the sleeves shrunk by your filler.
Bonus: If you require tamper-evident packaging, shrink sleeves can have that built into the design through a perforation around the lid.
