Sleeve wrapping requires a pack to be enclosed in shrink film before the pack and film are introduced to a heat source which activates the film’s memory to produce the desired effect.
There are two ways in which pack may be wrapped – the pack may be either wholly enclosed or partially enclosed using a sleeve.
Sleeve wrapping generally involves polyethylene material and collations of packs where the medium provides the lowest packaging costs for moving products in bulk.
The total enclosure of a pack allows it to be offered principally for display in a thin material that enhances its appeal.
Print on sleeves can be plain, 1 colour and anything up 4 Colour Process and as many special colours as required.
