Consolidated Label adds shrink sleeve production

June 29, 2011

The Florida converter aims to deliver quality shrink sleeves to middle market customers.

Consolidated Label, an award-winning manufacturer of pressure sensitive labels and flexible packaging products, has added shrink sleeve production capability to its wide array of packaging products.

The Company, which provides labels to small and large businesses, is now making it a top priority to deliver quality shrink sleeves to middle market customers as an alternative to labels alone.

“While there’s a great deal of challenges with the printing and production processes of shrink sleeves, we adopted it into our business because of the numerous benefits it had to our customers,” say Joel Carmany, president of Consolidated Label, Longwood, FL, USA. “In fact, one of the biggest benefits is the entire package and label can be recycled, as no adhesives are used within the shrink sleeve process.”

In order to print and produce shrink sleeves, the company has completely revamped old and introduced new processes to meet the manufacturing demands of shrink sleeves. This includes more advanced equipment, enhanced safety, and revisions to quality control.

Beginning with pre-production, the quality control methods include prototyping and distortion testing of the design prior to manufacturing the final product. Another element to the quality control is an air pressure system to discover any tears or gaps in the shrink sleeve seam. Last, before the sleeves are finished, samples are tested to ensure that the sleeves conform perfectly to the customer’s container.

“With each and every order, we’re exploring new and better ways to avoid the hazards, while becoming more efficient in shrink sleeve production,” adds Carmany. “We can now offer the opportunity for mid-level manufacturers to own an impressive visual identity that wasn’t available to them in the past, which has been our goal from the start.”

Founded in 1981, Consolidated Label produces labels and packaging for thousands of customers across a wide variety of industries, including food, beverage, household products, medical, pharmaceutical, and promotional products. The company has won TLMI’s Eugene Singer Award for Best Managed Company for the past nine years.
