If you run your own DIY business you may run into many obstacles that may seem impossible to overcome while working out of a small space such as at home or in a studio. One problem many have is trying to streamline production without large machinery. Namely, applying labels to products in mass quantities.
CoolJarz has seen many DIY businesses run into this very problem, which is why we have developed our compact, portable shrink sleeve label machine, that will allow you to label thousands of products in a single day.
Many DIY businesses are stuck using packaging that looks like it came from a DIY business. While this is a stylistic choice for some, it doesn’t really become economical when trying to expand production numbers and cutting cost.
Shrink sleeve labels are used by some of the largest companies on the map for multiple industries. Shrink sleeve labels are a great way to brand your product’s packaging because they can cover more of your container’s real estate with your design than the average sticker label.
The reason why many DIY businesses don’t use them, however, is because the application process has always either involved a large-scale machine or a slow heat gun method.
Not anymore with the CoolJarz SST shrink sleeve steam system. Our shrink sleeve system is small enough to work in almost any room and can up your label application process indefinitely.
Using the CoolJarz SST machine is very easy. Shrink sleeves require a small amount of heat to bind them to their containers. Our shrink sleeve machine creates this heat in the form of steam. This makes the heat not as hot as other shrink sleeve machines and can seal the sleeves even better.
Since the heat doesn’t get as hot, you won’t have to work in a room with a literal space heater. This device also works anywhere with a plug. Meaning this shrink sleeve machine could be used anywhere from a small garage to a full factory. Also, whenever you need to move your operation, the SST isn’t very heavy and can be easily picked up by a single person.
In fact, our shrink sleeve machine’s dimensions are only 22” x 17” x 45” in inches of tablespace. That’s less than 2 square feet of table space. Then when operating the device, you’ll only need about 4 square feet of space to work.
The best part is this machine’s price won’t run you the same as those heavy-duty factory models. A CoolJarz SST shrink sleeve machine will run you about $3500 at the moment and when you see how fast it is able to apply shrink labels, you’ll be saving money just off production time.
Quickly Apply Shrink Sleeve Labels
The SST Shrink Sleeve Machine is compact, yet has made the shrink sleeve process so quick and easy there is no need for one of those factory models. The sleeving process with the SST shrink sleeve machine becomes as easy as dropping your container down a tube. How so? Check out this video of just how quickly and easily our shrink sleeve machine applies to shrink sleeve labels.
As you can see, you’re getting factory-like speeds for your shrink sleeve labels but with our compact, shrink sleeve machine. Also, if you were thinking of going with a heat gun to apply your shrink sleeves instead, check out this video showing just how inefficient they are.
Seeing how long it took to just heat a tamper-evident band, you can just imagine how long it would take with an entire label. If you think using a heat gun is the cheaper option, you’ll be paying the difference just on time spent using one. With just one SST Shrink Sleeve Machine, you could possibly wrap over a thousand of your containers within one hour.
As shown from our videos above, the Cooljarz SST machine works great with our plastic pre-roll tubes, but you’re probably wondering if it’ll work with your product’s container.
Our shrink sleeve machine has 3 stock steam tunnels that work with most pre-roll tubes and containers of that size. We call these our “steam heads” and are interchangeable when you need to switch product sizes.
However, if your product doesn’t fit our 3 stock steam heads, we can also design a custom steam head made specifically for your containers. We offer this service because we believe our shrink sleeve machine can really change the labeling industry for many smaller businesses looking to use shrink sleeve labels.
The Cooljarz SST Shrink Sleeve Machine makes shrink sleeving easy and affordable for DIY business owners. Its compact size and a small area of work allow businesses of any size to quickly apply shrink sleeves to their products all at an inexpensive, affordable price.
