What heat tools are best to wrap my particular products?

Are you a small business owner who needs to wrap your products?

Perhaps you make handcrafted bar soaps or candles and need an efficient way to wrap your products before shipping from your Etsy shop. Well, Mr. Shrinkwrap has you covered!

Mr. Shrinkwrap has all of the tools you will need to successfully wrap your products to keep them free of dust or debris while providing a clean and professional look.

Your primary tools will include:

  • Hand Operated Impulse Sealer
  • Heat Guns
  • Polyolefin Shrink Film

Hand Operated Impulse Sealers

Impulse sealers are easy to operate and create a strong bond on various types of plastic or plastic-coated packaging. These sealers allow you to get as close to the product inside the packaging before sealing which creates a clean and professional look. Impulse sealers do not require any “warm-up” time making them ready to use as soon as they are turned on.

Pro Tip!

The experts at Mr. Shrinkwrap recommend selecting the 16” wide Impluse Sealer especially if it is your first one as this size can handle almost any job.

Impulse sealers range in price from $123 - $264.

If you are needing sealers for mid to high-volume production, Mr. Shrinkwrap offers other Compact Sealing Systems.

Heat Guns

While impulse sealers simply apply heat from a bar to seal a plastic bag or another plastic packaging, you may be looking for a more final product appearance. If you are wanting to tightly seal plastic around your soap or other products, you will need a heat gun.

For industrial applications, Mr. Shrinkwrap recommends propane heat guns, however, for a small business or Etsy shop, electric heat guns are typically a better option.

The temperature is controlled by a simple toggle featuring making is very easy to use and ensures a precise application of heat onto your wrapped products. This heat gun can be purchased for under $300.
