Shrink Wrapping for Printed Products

Shrink Wrapping for Printed Products

Shrink wrapping is a packaging process used to enclose or wrap products in a clear, plastic film. Once wrapped, heat is applied to the film – either through a heat tunnel, oven, or handheld heat gun – causing it to shrink tightly around the item. It is considered as a finishing method to better handle the printed products. Finally, this process facilitates the storage and warehousing of printed products:

Generally, the material used for shrink wrapping on printed products are polyolefin, PVC (polyvinyl chloride), and polyethylene. Each type has different characteristics in terms of strength, clarity, and shrink ratio.

As a trade printing expert, we take each finishing process very seriously, so that your clients’ demands go beyond their expectations. Here’s an general overview of the shrink wrapping process for printed products:

  • Wrapping: The item is wrapped in a loose piece of shrink film. This can be done manually or with automated equipment, depending on the scale of operations.
  • Sealing: The edges of the film are then sealed together, creating a loose bag around the item. This is often done with a sealing bar.
  • Shrinking: The wrapped item is exposed to heat, either in a heat tunnel or using a handheld heat gun. The heat causes the film to contract tightly around the item.
