Shrink sleeves

For maximum use of the packaging area. A shrink sleeve is great for marketing purposes, product protection, or for complex shapes where a traditional label comes up short. Thanks to its ability to wrap 360∞ around the product in a perfect fit, it can handle even the most challenging bottle shapes.

A shrink sleeve is placed around the product and shrinks when exposed to hot air or steam. This way it precisely wraps all the productís contours and you get much more space for marketing. The creativity of your design is limited only by the shape of the underlying container.

Benefits of shrink sleeves

  • You can use literally the entire surface of the packaging for marketing purposes
  • Shrink sleeves are also suitable for complex shapes where a classic adhesive label is impractical
  • They can protect your product against external elements

Method of production and printing

We offer our partners the production of larger series on flexographic printing machines, and the printing of smaller volumes using digital printing. The quality of both methods is comparable.

With flexographic printing, you can take advantage of up to 10 colour options, including all necessary finishing operations such as cold embossing or partial varnishes.

We print the underside of the packaging, so the colours are protected by the film itself and thus have greater durability. We customize the proofs and send them to you in 3D, so that you have a better idea of your productís final look. Subsequent shrinkage is most commonly achieved using hot air, steam, or infrared tunnels.

The final processing is done by sheet or roll.

Extra options

As a certified company for DPG printing, we can also use this technology in the production of shrink sleeves. We also offer transverse and longitudinal perforations – especially appreciate in the case of recycling.


Shrink sleeves appear most often in the beverage segment, in drugstores, and the cosmetic industry. In short, wherever a simple label is insufficient and packaging needs adapting to a more complex underlying shape.

Our customers often use shrink sleeves to protect their goods. For example, you can place it over the cap of a bottle to secure the contents against tampering or theft.



Shrink sleeves are made of special shrinkable materials.


Our most frequently used type of shrink sleeve material. Material with shrinkage up to 79%, thickness 45 mic.


Oriented polystyrene. Material with shrinkage around 70% and in various thicknesses.



Printing technologies

Volume is no obstacle. We offer digital printing for smaller runs, as well as higher volume production using flexographic printing.

DPG symbol

We are licensed to apply the DPG symbol even directly to the shrink sleeve. It is used on the German market.

Labels marked with this symbol are printed under a special security regime and subsequently stored as valuables.
