Stretch Sleeve Labels

Stretch sleeves are an eco-friendly and cost-effective way to provide a 360-degree labeling solution on bottles, cans, and jars for almost any market. They're made from Polyethylene (PE) which allows for the high levels of elasticity necessary to wrap around highly contoured containers by a single machine. No adhesive or heat required for application reduces carbon impact and cost.

What are some benefits of stretch sleeves?

Stretch sleeves offer retailers an economical way to create 360-degree product decorations on cans bottles and jars. With no adhesives or heat required for use, they are an ideal option for products in almost every industry. Our stretch sleeves are made from linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and offer high elasticity (30 to 40%) needed to conform close to highly contoured vessels. We can also add perforations to sleeves. These can serve as visible features surrounding a seal or help consumers remove their own sleeves.

In addition, there are 2 types of stretch label materials - fabric and polypropylene, which means they can be printed using a huge range of printing techniques including laser engraving, digital print, pad print, flexographic print, thermal transfer print and rotary screen printing.

How do we customize our stretch sleeves?

Printing on stretch labels can be done using either direct print or with a secondary label. With primary labels you place the primary label stock over the stretch film and then print directly onto the film while your Laser printer is running through its engraving cycle - we'll talk more about this later in the article. For secondary labels there will be a separate label that becomes part of the sleeve material itself. This means that when customers remove your product from their packaging, they also remove your branding for maximum impact.

What types of products can be packaged with stretch sleeve labels?

Some products to package with stretch sleeves are housewares, clothing, toys, cleaning products, detergents, propane tanks, antifreeze, windshield wiper fluid and other types of personal goods.  Stretch sleeves are a fantastic way to brand your product if you're seeking an inexpensive and effective method.

What are some reasons to choose stretch sleeve labels?

1. Stretch sleeves are cost-effective
Stretch labels are an effective method to brand consumer's goods with maximum exposure so they won't have to remove a sticker or anything else. These labels can be stretched to fit any shape without ripping off. There is no adhesive or heat required for usage, which ensures that the design being read on the product will not be altered by these labels. Because there is no need for heat, stretch logo labels are ideal for delicate contents such as food items.

2. They have high elasticity
The material used has tension capacity of 30-40%. This makes them ideal for contoured surfaces.  You may also utilize perforations in the sleeve fabric to make a visible seal or let people remove them quickly.

The flexibility of stretch sleeves means that they may be produced on a wide range of printing technologies, including laser engraving, digital print, pad print, flexographic print, thermal transfer printing, and rotary screen printing.  If you're searching for an innovative method to brand your goods, consider using stretch sleeves.

3. They're available in a range of colors
You'll have lots of colors to choose from with stretch sleeves: over 30 opaque and countless translucent. You may also use special effect pigments to give your creation a lot more appeal.

4. Able to withstand the elements
The product can be kept outside in the elements. Think antifreeze, windshield wiper fluid, and propane tanks.
