Regardless of the product, whether it is a glass jar, egg container, pair of socks, or a soap bar, packaging sleeves instantly enhance its look.

Packaging sleeves come with customizable options for any product of different shapes or dimensions.

Enhance the Shelf Appeal of Your Product with Belly Bands 

Packaging sleeves are the most accessible and affordable way to make your product stand out. You can use these customized paper wraps to enhance the appearance of your products by wrapping them around.

Using a packaging sleeve is a great way to enhance your product’s shelf appeal while maintaining a simple appearance. The paper used to create the sleeves is thick, durable, and high quality, which lasts longer than traditional plastic wrap.

In addition to your brand logo, box sleeves can serve as a quick packaging method to enhance holiday and limited edition offers that grab your customers’ attention.

Packaging Sleeves with Multiple Customization Options

At CBM, we welcome our clients to customize their packaging and help them with all design options, including offset and digital printing, coating, and finishes. Let us have a brief detail of all of them. 

For Printing, we use two printing color scheme system, which is environmentally friendly and produces vibrant colors.

  • CMYK is the cost-effective color system used in Offset printing for creating images.
  • Pantone is more expensive than CMYK and is used for accurate brand colors.

The coating allows you to experience the sophistication of a beautiful, clean card stock going straight for style. It aims to protect the printed design from scratch, dirt, or fingerprints.

  • Varnish is a cheaper, water-based, sustainable coating and is less protective than lamination.
  • Lamination is an expensive, plastic coated layer that protects your designs from cracks, but not eco-friendly.

Two commonly used finish options used in packaging in both lamination and varnish are Matte and Glossy.

  •  A matte finish for your packaging can give it a softer appearance and a smooth texture. It doesn’t reflect light and remains unaffected by fingerprints.
  • A glossy finish is a great option for a shiny appearance. Keep in mind that this type of finish will create a glare when light reflects off of it. Also, fingerprints are more visible on glossy packaging.
