Sleeves with a Secure Function

IMG_0806-(1).JPEGProduct theft and shrinkage is a constant area for packaging development, as brands and retailers evolve their technology to stay one step ahead. The affects are so significant that Forbes reported the retail industry lost $46.8 billion in inventory shrink in 2018.

Hammer Packaging has developed a method for inserting (or "on-serting") EAS and RFID tags into our shrink and pouch films inline with our finishing equipment. Piloted by Gorilla Glue tape, the EAS tags are adhered to the inside of the shrink sleeve packaging, providing hidden security against theft.

This label insertion technology on our finishing line opens a wide range of creative uses, including hidden promotional games and consumer-facing marketing, supply chain tracking devices, among others. 

Have an idea? Let's brainstorm. Contact us today.
