Esko’s shrink sleeve solution comes with dedicated functionality:
The Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves is part of Studio Advanced, and is available as a subscription!
Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves is a unique application to simulate a heat shrink sleeve around one or more objects.
See in Adobe® Illustrator® how your artwork will distort and automatically apply a counter distortion, based on substrate specifications. Produce great looking 3D PDF files and avoid trial-and-error. Print your shrink sleeve packaging the first time right, every time.
Getting artwork for heat shrink packaging and labels right, is a tough job. As the film shrinks, the branding and the design can be seriously compromised, rendering the packaging or labels useless.
Artwork for shrink sleeve packaging needs to be repositioned and compensated for the shrink factor of the substrate. Without Esko’s Studio 3D view, you are working blind.
We work with many unusual containers, such as flavored water bottles, for example. We will design the shape with a 3D modeling program and import it into Studio Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves. From there creating the label is pretty easy
