Much more than just fancy equipment
The perfect shrink sleeve application is an art form as much as it is a science. EG was an early pioneer in the development of shrink techniques in the US and we’ve been refining our craft ever since. We have over 1 billion sleeves’ worth of experience that we’ll utilize to help you achieve the perfect packaging for your product. We’re talking substrates, lay flats, cut lengths, shrink factor, film gauge, varnishes, and flexo/roto/web offset/digital. It’s one thing to apply a shrink sleeve label onto a container, it’s another thing entirely to do it properly and with precision.
Giving your product the respect that it deserves
We go to extreme lengths to ensure that our customers’ products are properly cared for in our facility. We are certified by BRCGS, a global food safety & quality system that is part of the GFSI umbrella. We are FDA registered and hold USDA Organic Handler certification & Kosher certification. Our shrink sleeve equipment is fitted with in-line quality inspection and culinary-grade steam and air. Our facility features temperature-controlled shrink sleeve storage and our teams adhere to strict GMP & HACCP procedures. We’ll not only make your product beautiful – we’ll keep it safe too.
Stand out in the “sea of sameness”
Packaging is oftentimes the customer’s first impression of a product. Shrink sleeves will help you stand out from the competition due to their incredible graphic potential and full 360-degree coverage. They provide brand managers with more real estate to tell their story. Vibrant colors, matte varnishes, foil, and holographics are all on the table. When every square inch matters, shrink sleeves deliver. Our team can guide you from concept to completion including pre-press artwork assistance, sleeve spec development, and of course, the perfect label application.
The ultimate flexibility in package decorating
Shrink sleeves are unique in that they can form-fit onto nearly any shape & size of container – square, circle, wide, narrow, short, tall, asymmetrical, etc. Many industries utilize shrink sleeves including food & beverage, home fragrance, health & beauty, personal care, household goods, automotive, pet, craft beer & wine, and more! Compared to other deco methods, shrink sleeves are remarkably resilient against scuffing, humidity, and dirt. If sustainability is important to your brand, perforations can be added to the sleeve to encourage recycling.
