A revolution in can personalisation! From early 2024, we’ll have access to a sophisticated digital printer that allows us to directly print designs onto cans. This machine offers high print quality, up to 1600 dpi. Photorealistic images, all sorts of finishes (glossy or matte), different structures; the possibilities are endless. Digital printing instead of sleeving means printing without a ‘seam’, all the way to the neck (or shoulder) of the can. In other words: a fantastic new option. And unique in the Benelux area, so give it a try!
At Canlab, we have access to a unique installation that allows us to sleeve open cans without the need for a steamer. The cans are provided with a shrink sleeve, a printed piece of film that shrinks as a result of heat and forms a second skin around the can. This reduces the risk of deposits on the inside of the can. Our system allows us to fully encircle the can with a PE label designed with the latest printing and painting technology. This opens up amazing marketing opportunities! Of course, we always work with recyclable PE and never use PVC.
Are you curious about the vibrant colour and design options? We are happy to help you design the sleeves, and we can even take care of the entire process for you. We order our sleeves at our partner Eshuis, a company with years of experience with a variety of internationally renowned beverage brands. Thanks to this partnership, we can offer our digitally printed sleeves in small batches or classic runs starting at 20,000 units.
Would you like a demo box? Please contact us! You’ll receive six cans and an overview of the amazing possibilities.
We prefer labelling open cans, but it’s definitely possible to label filled cans, too. Contact us to hear all about the options!
