What We Offer
Full Body Shrink Sleeves
Brands have an ever-increasing demand for unique and interesting containers. The creative touch of a new bottle style can help set your product apart on the shelf. The beauty of shrink sleeves is that they give you the freedom to choose the container you want and still have the graphics and marketing messages you need.
Shrink sleeves also give you the flexibility to switch up your container presentation and product offering, from single items to double packs – or more – banded together.
At Atlantic, we design and print shrink sleeves for a range of container shapes and sizes with quality processes that ensure the the integrity of your brand. We also have the equipment expertise to get you set up with a shrink sleeve application system that meets your demands for production.
With creativity, collaboration, and perseverance, we’ve been able to meet the challenges of sleeve design and application for some of our customers’ most distinctive containers and brand-specific artwork.
ACCURACY AND EFFICIENCY
Your shrink sleeve application system must have an accurate and efficient process resulting in a clean and professional presentation for your container. From the conveyor, to the bander and the steam tunnel, you want your bottles moving through the line with ease and coming through ready for the spotlight.
Our sales and technical engineers work with a range of equipment and systems, from manual applications for contract packagers, to more complex, fully automated applications on designer bottles. Extensive trial-and-error testing and single color comp work will ensure that your shrink sleeves are applied with consistency and accuracy, every time.
Whether you’re banding multiple items together or giving your single item a sleek look, Atlantic has the resources and expertise to set you up for success.

TAMPER EVIDENT SEAL
CONFIDENCE IN SAFETY
Tamper evidence is critical to ensure the safety of your consumers. Whether you’re producing food and beverage products, health and beauty products, or household items, tamper evident seals communicate trust and security in your brand.
With shrink sleeves, we can produce a perforated seal to show tamper evidence which can be removed without compromising the body of the sleeve.
Our label experts will work with you to determine the best application for your sleeves including the tamper evident seal.
The ability to preview your shrink sleeve before it ever goes to print saves time and money in the development phase.
Sleeves often require a degree of distortion in printing to account for the varying points where the sleeve shrinks around the bottle. Because of this distortion, it can be difficult to gauge or approve the sleeve by simply looking at it before it gets to the bottle. And running physical prototypes adds time and costs to the project.
That’s why we offer 3D proofing.
This software program allows you to to see a 360°, 3-dimensional, accurate image of the sleeve on your bottle for your approval before we go to print. You can view the sleeve from all angles and be confident that your container will come out looking exactly like the image you approved.
This 3D imaging also gives you an excellent marketing resource that you can use to show off your product on your website, email, and print materials.
We have an extensive process for quality control at Atlantic Printing and Graphics. Our Quality Policy states that we are dedicated to a quality management system that complies with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 as well as the requirements of our customers and industry-specific regulations. Atlantic is committed to setting data-driven, measurable objectives that will continually improve our quality system and our offerings.
PROTECTING YOUR BRAND
Beyond standards and regulations, Atlantic is committed to protecting your brand and making it shine. Our presses and proofers are G7 calibrated to ensure that the proof we show you on your shrink sleeves will match exactly with the sleeves we run on our press for your final product. We run spectrodensitometer testing for color consistency, and tensile strength testing for material quality.
Making your brand look its best on your products is our priority when it comes to printing and applying your shrink sleeves. You can be confident that with Atlantic as your partner, your products will shine on the retail shelves.
STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
Use eye-catching shrink bands to pack multiple items together and help your product stand above the competition. Multipacking is a great way to move additional inventory, introduce a new and related product, or feature a seasonal discount. It’s also a creative way to bundle your products and influence consumer buying decisions.
Multipacking opens up opportunities to change your product offering as needed. It also gives you more space on the shelf to attract buyers. The team at Atlantic can help source, design, proof, print, and apply your multipack bands for a clean and professional presentation.
Whether you’re offering a special value on twin packs or piggy-backing a trial size product, multipacking with shrink bands gives you a competitive edge with your retail packaging.
