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


Neoprene sleeving is a very flexible, petrol, oil and ozone resistant tubing made from highly elastic extruded Polychloroprene Rubber quality 3490. It is available in 12 different colours and in diameters of 1.2mm – 17mm as standard. Bespoke sizes and wall thicknesses on application and cutting and printing as required.

Also known as Chloroprene, neoprene rubber sleeving is ideal for the binding and identification of cable harnesses, braided mains leads into plugs and portable equipment, and as electrical insulation. It has good elastic and mechanical properties and is not corrosive to metal. Neoprene’s elastomeric properties mean a high degree of expansion can be achieved during assembly making it easy to apply either as a continuous length or in cut markers.

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.
