Egg-Shaped Household Cleaner Packaging Shows Off Shrink Sleeve Design
Ecoegg's new cleaning product comes in an egg-shaped package, and Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury (chadwicks-lids.com) was responsible for the eye-catching shrink sleeve design.
Producing the shrink sleeve for Ecoegg was a huge technical challenge due to the complexity of the unusual and eye-catching container shape.
Ecoegg wanted to create a shrink sleeve that would encapsulate the container and stay attached even when the cleaner was twisted open. It was vital that the shrink sleeve remain on the product after first opening, so the instructions stay attached to each half of the egg-shaped container and are clearly visible.
“This gave us the challenge of designing and producing a perforation that peeled down and around the product to reveal the centre of the container, which is twisted open to reveal the cleaning paste and sponge in each half of the ‘egg’. A cold seal adhesive is applied with a bespoke pattern to allow the shrink sleeve to remain on the container without it being removed when peeling the perforation and twisting the product open," said Paul Mayall, Clondalkin Bury’s shrink sleeve technical manager.
Based in the U.K., Ecoegg produces eco-friendly laundry and cleaning products that don’t contain any harsh chemicals and are environmentally friendly.
Jane Brown, Ecoegg’s Head of Product, added: “We are delighted that together with Clondalkin Bury we have been able to design a fully functioning hard surface cleaning product that closely identifies with our core branding. We are very pleased with the high quality visual finish of the shrink sleeved product.”
