Stretch labels are used to label and decorate products such as beverages, food,
personal care products, chemicals and cleaning products. They are similar to
shrink labels in that they allow 360 degrees of print area on the label around
the container. The label is constructed of a stretch film material that has
elasticity to it. The label is stretched over the container and released when
it is in the proper location. Once released, it will fit snug and form to the
contours of the container. The stretch sleeve label does not need any glue or
heat to enable it to stay in place.
The labels are available on clear or opaque film and can be reverse printed.
They are supplied on rolls and a perforation can be added between labels if
desired. The stretch labels can be supplied for manual, semi-automatic or automatic
The application process does not cause any fumes and it does not contaminate
the container with glue. The application of the label is a very clean process
and very environmental friendly. The stretch label is moisture proof and is
easy to remove from the container at the time of recycling due to the absence
of glue. Although stretch labels will not work for all applications, they are
gaining popularity worldwide.
