Best Custom Heat Shrink Labels and Shrink Labeling Equipment Providers

Posted by Chela Mancuso

Using custom heat shrink labels is one of the most cost-effective and sustainable options for manufacturers looking for an efficient way to package and label their products. When it comes to heat shrink printing experts, it is crucial to find a reliable printer that has the right equipment to finish the job. Heat shrink labeling is a commercial packaging method that involves placing a shrink sleeve over a container, whether it is glass, plastic, or any variety of material, then heat is applied to the shrink sleeve which fits it to the container. Shrink sleeves provide a few different key elements to packaging including: 

  • Customizability. Each shrink sleeve is highly customizable and comes in full color with high-quality imagery to represent your brand well on shelves. 
  • Tamper-proof seals. One of the biggest benefits of heat shrink labels is the ability to use tamper-proof sealing to keep your product and your consumers safe. 
  • Sustainability. Shrink sleeves can be produced with sustainable and eco-friendly materials. 
  • Cost-effective. Not only are shrink sleeve labels more cost-efficient, but when manufacturers and packagers use the right equipment the heat shrink sleeve labels can be applied hands-free which reduces the cost of labor overheads and offers increased packaging speeds. 

For many of these reasons, heat shrink labeling has become the standard in the manufacturing and labeling industry for its many application options, highly customizable features, and its cost efficiency.
