Printing and production of high-quality shrink sleeve label

sleveco has been focusing on the printing of shrink sleeve label and stretch sleeve label since its establishment in 1988. According to Mr. martinwilson, deputy manager of the company's sales and marketing department, the reason why the company can cooperate with some internationally renowned consumer goods manufacturers on many challenging projects is also inseparable

In addition to the prepress and printing departments, sleepeco also began to extend downstream to the process and manufacture all kinds of labeling equipment. When processing complex shrink labels, every process link, from design to labeling, must be accurate, and sleeveco can provide all the professional technologies required for the whole process

1. Sleveco produces high-quality shrink sleeve labels

sleveco is aimed at some markets that have very strict requirements on product labels, including automotive aftermarket, cosmetics market, consumer goods market, greening and garden products market, etc. When printing shrink sleeve labels, sleeveco uses solvent based inks. The printing materials suitable for gravure printing include 6 sets of attachment PVC, high shrinkage PVC, PETG, OPS and OPP films for various mechanical experiments, such as various heat preservation systems, adhesives and flexible water-resistant putty, while PP films are mainly used when printing on flexographic printing machines

because sleeveco has both gravure printing machine and flexographic printing machine, it has high flexibility in production and can choose the appropriate printing method according to the product situation. Flexographic printing machines are suitable for printing bills, coupons, lotteries, etc. that require 100% complete recycling of materials, and labels that prevent leakage and pollution of chemicals in containers. In addition, it is also suitable for drum packaging with a printing volume of 8 ounces to 55 gallons, and can select the ink color and the number of lines added according to the requirements of image color concentration

with gravure printing, sleeveco can also provide photo quality images, and can print with special inks (including metal ink, pearlescent ink, mixed ink and matte oil). Some labels with translucent effect look like labels without labels

2. Practical experience

because sleepeco is an enterprise specializing in label printing, it processes a wide range of moving parts, from ordinary label to more complex label, and even some innovative new products. If necessary, the company will spend several months on research and development to make all indicators of products more perfect, such as size, deformation rate and image quality, Therefore, many packaging users came here one after another

Mr. Wilson highlighted the case that the company spent several months developing shrink labels for some gasoline containers in PENNZOIL quakerstate. He said: at present, the domestic new energy vehicle market for gasoline is still guided by policy subsidies, and the shape of the bottle is similar to that of a racing car. Other companies in the industry believe that this product should not adopt an overall shrinkage label. In order to make the label shrink and wrap it just outside the car shaped bottle (the wheel and canopy on the label must be able to closely cooperate with the wheel and canopy on the bottle), the designers of our company's prepress department have correctly deformed some parts of the label. In addition, our company also cooperates with bottle manufacturers to make the density of bottles suitable, and has developed a special system for pasting such labels

another challenging project is the successful development of shrink sleeve labels for bluecoral's blackmagic series products. Bluecoral wants to use the integral shrink sleeve label for its spray gun bottle. The main challenge is the deformation of the bottleneck. Sleeveco has developed a solution that can provide the correct shrinkage rate in both the small cap and the large bottom

at this time, the elongation of the material fell to 5.8%, and the successful application of shrinkage labels and special inks greatly improved the business of the company. Mr. Wilson said: our customer whiterockdisti2. Design standard of carton inspection equipment: lleries plans to change the product packaging from the original frosted etched glass to an integral shrink sleeve label, which can also achieve the original effect after matte glazing. This saves the company a lot of costs and reduces the inventory of bottles

3. Opportunities and challenges

although sleepeco is facing the growing packaging and printing market, it still faces some severe tests. Mr. Wilson said: the biggest problem comes from the requirements of end users for speed and timeliness. The market and major retailers (such as Wal Mart) require suppliers (that is, our customers) to shorten the delivery cycle, and the amount of supply required each time is gradually reduced. The key to the success of our company is to correctly formulate the initial project plan for these problems, so that we can help customers quickly enter the market

despite various challenges, Mr. Wilson believes that the development prospect of shrink sleeve label is bright. He said: with the further development of shrink sleeve labeling technology and the deepening of people's understanding of shrink sleeve labeling, plastic container blow molding enterprises are now able to produce all kinds of strange bottles, which is more attractive and humanized. Although the cost of shrink sleeve label is slightly higher than that of pressure-sensitive label and paper label, it can bring higher added value to the product
