In addition to supplying our customers with Shrink Sleeves and Sleeve Machinery, we also provide a contract sleeving service. We can print and apply your Sleeves onto any container or bottle that you provide, or we can source the bottles for you. We apply Sleeves with our automatic Shrink Sleeve machine onto bottles/containers in-house at our Leeds production facility. The Sleeves can be applied individually or in combination with a fully body application.
