How are packaging sleeves shipped?

Packaging sleeves can be produced two ways before they are shipped. Sometimes, packaging sleeves are glued before they are sent to the customer. This means that the two ends of the sleeve are connected and sealed at the printer’s shop. Depending on the customer needs, the sleeve will be printed but the sealing of the paper can be left incomplete before shipping. This means that when the customer receives their packaging sleeves, they can form the sleeve by connecting the two ends and sealing it themselves. This requires a “peel and seal” solution that allows glue to be placed on the sleeve, but covered so that it does not stick in the shipping process. Once the customer receives it, they can simply remove (peel) the protective layer and apply the glue to form the sleeve.

All packaging sleeves can be folded flat before shipping. This allows the printing company to maximize the amount of space per box to ship your packaging sleeves. This industry standard saves you money on shipping costs and ensures the product arrives without impacting the quality of production.
