Shrink Sleeving

For those looking to update their packaging format, Adams now provides a contract shrink sleeving service, designed to offer a 360 degree wrap to bottles of many shapes and sizes, allowing stronger branding to products and the ability to include more information on the bottle.

The flexible shrink sleeve packaging format may help companies to reduce cost by using the same generic bottles for their whole range, only differentiating between products with the shrink sleeve. Sleeving also provides ease of recycling to the end user, as shrink sleeves can be more easily removed than standard bottle labels, providing two separate streams of recycled material.

Prior to sleeving, bottles can be filled using Adams’ custom-built 4-head liquid filler.
