Overview

The Material

Used in full-body shrink labels, Embrace™ film copolyesters deliver superior performance, flexibility, and printability to maximize product shelf appeal. The excellent printability of Embrace™ supports high-gloss vibrant colors or eye-catching matte finishes that are soft to the touch. Embrace film utilizes RAS™ (roll applied shrink label) technology to form contoured shapes, effectively turning any package into a 360-degree billboard.
