Overall, the benefits of shrink sleeve labeling are numerous. However, have you ever wondered what the shrink sleeve label process looks like? First, you have to find a custom shrink sleeve designer, decide what type of material you would like to print on, decide if you would like to include tamper-evident neck banding, and make a few other choices. This also includes designing the label. Luckily, shrink sleeve labels are incredibly versatile and won’t deform the design that you create for your product.
