Aluminum cans have been making a comeback in the beverage industry for a variety reasons like portability, sustainability, freshness, and even changing consumer perceptions/preferences. Smaller manufacturers, however, may find that pre-printed cans are unfeasible for their operations due to printing and minimum requirements costs – fortunately there is an alternative. Shrink sleeve labels(commonly referred to as ‘shrink sleeves’) are a unique product we produce that offer 360-degree design coverage for cans and other packaging types such as bottles, aerosols, and tubes. Check out the benefits of shrink sleeves for cans below!
There are many reasons why our customers choose shrink sleeves over traditional ‘pressure sensitive’ labels – mostly because they make their product look amazing! Whether you’re a craft beer manufacturer looking to get a competitive edge or a beverage company expanding their product line, shrink sleeves are an inventive, stylish solution for can packaging. Benefits of shrink sleeves for cans:
Before you start your order, there are some things you should know about shrink sleeves. For one thing, applying shrink sleeves require equipment made specifically for shrinking, like a radiant heat tunnel, hot air tunnel, steam tunnel, or hybrid tunnel. The equipment isn’t cheap but the investment can pay off in the long run; another option is to outsource to a co-packer which has benefits and drawbacks. Our dedicated customer service team would be happy to help you get started on your custom shrink sleeves or answer any questions you may have.
