Shrink Sleeve Label Printing and
Heat Tunnel Application

Shrink Sleeve Labels conforms to the sexy shape of your bottle when applied correctly. Blue Line Label can print and professionally heat shrink your products. The 360 degree branding of your product as well as built in perforated for tamper evident cap sealing, make this unique label that has no adhesive a great alternative for your products.

Digital shrink labels are printed in full color on shrinkable PETG plastic producing high impact graphics. Blue Line Labels can help give your product high impact visibility when sitting on the shelf. If you have a heat or steam tunnel we can provide the printed film individually or on rolls.

Flexible Shrink Sleeve Labels are printed on the inside and laminated together with a gloss layer that is shrinkable in size through the application of heat. Shrink Sleeve labels are one of the fastest growing segments in drink and commercial packaging. These full-body labels provide colorful wrap-around coverage that conforms to unique shapes. Once the film shrinks, it conforms tightly to the shape of the container creating a sleek look and presentation.

Additional benefits of high gloss PETG film is that it allows for the most achievable shrink rate, prints amazing with excellent clarity and is moisture and scuff resistant. Horizontal and vertical perforations in the film adds the perfect security of product tampering when covering the cap that acts as a tamper evident seal.
