Things you Should know While Selecting a SS Vendor

Your brand is only as good as the products you sell. But once you have developed superb products, the next crucial step is to find an excellent shrink sleeve supplier – the one who is capable of providing innovative, cutting-edge solutions for your ongoing packaging needs.

In this article, let’s discuss the five things to keep in mind while selecting the right Shrink Sleeve vendor for your business.

PROVEN EXPERTISE: Your shrink sleeve supplier must demonstrate remarkable technical excellence along with a strict adherence to shrink sleeve best practices.

Since each product comes with its own set of requirements, access to all the latest printing technologies is a must. The last thing you need or want is a sleeve supplier who lacks knowledge and fails to follow the right processes.


COLLABORATIVE SKILLS: Always work with a vendor with skills to understand your packaging requirements even better than you. You see, clear communication between you and them is crucial, especially when troubleshooting issues as they arise – as your supplier’s knowledge and experience can be critical to the success of your project. Hence, look for a shrink sleeve partner who is proactive both in thought and action.


 ENVIABLE EXPERIENCE: To benefit from the latest shrink sleeve innovations and set your products apart from the competition, find a shrink sleeve vendor experienced at handling multiple types of shrink sleevesubstrates. And make sure they have access to different printing technologies and grades of shrink films as one type of shrink film does not film all applications.


RIGHT INFRASTRUCTURE: Before finalizing the vendor, find out if they

  • Have a state-of-the-art R&D lab and an expert technical team?
  • Are they open to innovating their shrink sleeve packaging solutions?
  • Offer value-added and security sleeves?
  • Have the expertise to provide premium-looking sleeves?
  • Have a solution for distortion-free shrink sleeves and mock-ups?

Now that you know what to look for in a shrink sleeve supplier, let’s quickly discuss the prerequisites of a sound labeling partner for your brand.

Your product shrink labels serve the role of your silent sales team, turning your brand into an Ad-on-the-Shelf.
