These innovative labels are used on plastic, glass or metal containers and are common in a wide variety of markets.
Tamper-evident shrink sleeve packaging
Sleeves are especially popular for food and beverage labels, particularly juices, energy drinks and alcoholic beverages, because they offer tamper-evident seals. They’re common on pharmaceutical and nutraceutical labels for the same reason.
More space on packaging for branding and regulatory information
Shrink sleeves also make it easy to comply with regulations or maximize shelf impact, as text and graphics can be updated on the shrink sleeves, which are easy to remove from containers without wasting the containers themselves.
Abrasion, moisture and product resistance
They’re common on household cleaning products now too (detergents, soaps, cleaning agents), as they can use highly durable materials that withstand moisture, friction and high temperatures.
