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

Printable heatshrink sleeving and markers

Print ready markers and heatshrink sleeving have undergone a number of highly specific flattening and cleansing processes to ensure optimum printing.  They are available in a number of grades meeting different industry specific standards including MIL-SPEC, fire safety, RoHS and REACH, UL and CSA regulations, and are offered in a wide range of colours and sizes as continuous sleeving or as labels on organised, ladder-style carriers.

In addition to being manufactured from compounds chemically composed to ensure the optimum surface tension for print permanence, print ready markers and heatshrink have been flattened and, in the majority of cases, cleansed with specific substances to enable high performing print capabilities.  Each of the below listed grades are used at Printasleeve’s own print facility allowing us to recommend the best fit for your requirements and supplement in-house printing if and when required.  A first-class, fast, reliable service is guaranteed and many sizes and colours are ex-stock, for next day delivery.

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.
