Welcome to Printasleeve - High Quality Printed Sleeving Products for All Your Professional Needs

Hot knife cutters

Recommended for cutting braided sleeving and cable jacket, these hot knife cutters have the capacity to cut up to 200mm flatwidth and are available in a range of sizes and powers.

Electrically powered hot knife cutters cut and seal braided sleeving, webbing, ropes and cords made from Polyester, Nylon, Terylene, Polypropylene and most other man-made fibres. The mounted hot blade enables users to draw the braided sleeving across the knife blade under tension.  Both hands are then free to manipulate the sleeving and to seal and flare the ends. Cut ends are fused together minimising any tendency to fray. They are ready to use within 60 seconds of being switched on and come fitted with a two metre mains cable. Constructed of steel with a Polyester coating and an illuminated on/off switch, they have pre placed screw holes for bench mounting if required.  The cutting blade is easily removed for cleaning or replacement.  For use in well ventilated areas.

Free Artwork Service

As part of the fully comprehensive print process, we offer a free artwork service for both thermal and hot foil printing. This involves, advising on print suitability, resizing to fit final fitted size and re-ordering information supplied in spreadsheet format according to the sequence of installation or into kits.

To ensure superior print results, it stands to reason that artwork needs to be best quality and this is why we advise on whether artwork is suitable for purpose in terms of fine detail and ornate graphics which may not successfully transfer to smaller sleeves and markers, or where a high shrink rate is required. Furthermore, as heatshrinkable products do not shrink in a uniform manner (transverse and longitudinal shrink ratios differ widely) we resize artwork so that there is a strict correlation between original and final fitted dimensions.

We accept many formats for artwork including, but not limited to, tiff, eps, bmp, jpg, gif and PDF. For jpeg, save your image using the best quality. We use a single colour print system. This means the sleeving and print can be different colours, but the print itself can only be one colour. For best results send your image in black and white with what you would like printed in black. We can then take the image and print it on your selected sleeving in the correct print colour.

We also print from spreadsheets, CSV or text files, .lists or drawings. Where required, we can sort, print and pack according to the sequence of installation.
