DISCOVER THE SHRINK SLEEVES AND STRETCH SLEEVES WITH DPG LOGO FROM HELIOS PACKAGING!

Do you want to offer drinks products on the German market without compromising on your label design or ecology? As a DPG-certified packaging partner, Helios Packaging puts your product in sleek, striking sleeve packaging with a deposit logo. Your products are then 100% market-compliant for sale in Germany. Discover the advantages of shrink sleeves and stretch sleeves for your production now.

SLEEVE LABELS WITH DPG LOGO

The first step in getting your product ready for German consumption is obviously making your packaging legally compliant. German legislation requires all drinks packaging to display the DPG logo. This symbol means that German consumers can collect deposit money when returning product empties. As a result, recycling at end users is encouraged and littering is minimised.

Until recently this DPG logo could only be printed on smaller (adhesive) labels. This caused major limitations with regard to both the design options and the ecological impact of your packaging. Shrink Sleeves or Stretch Sleeves are however easy to separate in waste material flows, so they optimise circularity in the recycling process.

SLEEVE PACKAGING BRINGS THE END OF DESIGN RESTRICTIONS

Do you sometimes have to make compromises when translating your ideas or designs into a product label? Is everything not looking as accurate, sharp or attractive as you had envisaged? There are no more trade-offs when you start using shrink sleeves and stretch sleeves.

When designing your product label you have a practically endless choice in perfectly incorporating any colour combination in the ultimate sleeve concept. What you see is what you get.

SLEEVES OPTIMISE YOUR PRODUCT SURFACE

Do you as a producer want to put an attractive promotional text on your packaging? Do you want to graphically put the spotlight on a special promotion? But you also have to comply with the legal obligations concerning contents and ingredients? You then soon find yourself struggling with a lack of space on your packaging.

Shrink sleeves and stretch sleeves give you the opportunity to partly or fully utilise the surface of your product with cap sealing, middle body, full body, overall body and multiple-item packaging. You can also give a sleeve extra safety features such as perforation on the bottleneck. This is again without having to curtail your design options.

Does your primary packaging differ from the “traditional” forms? No problem. The adhesive-free shrinkage or stretching makes sleeve labels tightly enclose the most unusual of shapes. The narrowest and widest product circumference may even vary up to 70 % depending on the form of the sleeve.

Does your product range include different formats and shapes? You can then simply switch between different coloured versions and sleeve formats in your packaging process.

STRETCH OR SHRINK SLEEVE PACKAGING: TOWARDS A GREENER FUTURE

The consumer taking your product of the shelf not only ponders your design. He or she also critically looks at the green image of your company. From now on, with sleeve packaging you are also working on sustainability and efficient recycling.

With the DPG logo littering is minimised on the one hand, while the circular recycling of your products is encouraged. Shrink sleeves and stretch sleeves facilitate the recycling process to boot. Sleeves do not use any adhesive, so they can be simply separated from the primary packaging at recycling centres. Proof of this comes from the fact that our sleeve packaging meets the RecyClass guidelines.

Besides reducing the basic weight of your packaging, there is also less residual waste after use. The result is much lower CO2 emissions at your company. With every-increasingly stringent environmental laws in mind, you get ahead of the ecological standards coming in future.
