Dual Chamber Hinge Sleeve

This sleeve is designed with a seam that separates the two chambers. Just like the Dual Chamber Sleeve, it is used to bundle products of different sizes or shapes. It has the added advantage of allowing the graphics on both items to be visible. Customers can therefore read the information on each item by handling the bundled.

Solutions to common multipack shrink sleeve challenges

  • Perforations and/or tear tape can be added to facilitate the opening of the multipack.
  • Blockout inks can be used to block out the underlying UPC symbols. Rather than sticking labels on individual items to cover the UPCs, blockout inks save labour and time while ensuring that only the multipack UPC is scanned. Blockout inks also increase the legibility of the copy on the multipack sleeve (the underlying graphics do not show through).
  • Heat activated adhesive can be used to secure the units within the pack or to create a straight wall of containers. The adhesive does not leave any residue.
  • Trays or puck can be used to align the containers and assist with the under wrapping of the bundle.
