Shrink Sleeve Labels Experts Since The 1970's

Gilbreth helped pioneer the shrink sleeve labels market over 40 years ago as one of the first to introduce gravure printing on shrink film. In 1983, Gilbreth designed the tamper-evident band in response to the Tylenol tampering incident. Gilbreth's history as an innovator continued with the development of the full-body shrink sleeve label which became an alternative to pressure sensitive paper and film. Gilbreth's engineers solved art distortion problems on high shrink films. Our innovative solutions to new packaging challenges help our customers to differentiate their products in today's retail environment.
