Complete 18" shrink-wrap system,
includes 21" sealing Wand, film carrier, teflon pad, cushioning
pad, deluxe dual-temp heat gun and biodegradable Polyolefin film. Appropriate for

CD's etc ) as well as mid-sized individual items, stationery and more.
This is our most popular system with soapers. Wrap 16-20 bars in a
single sealing session lasting less than 1 minute! Another 2-3 minutes
to shrink them and you can expect to process 100 bars in about 25
minutes. This system is large enough to wrap
gift sets, trays and small baskets. Add a loofah, some lip balm and
lotion, (or candles) and create Spa and Aromatherapy Kits in just
Pawn & Loan Shops • Amazon FBA's & Resellers
This system is also our most popular with Pawn Shops and Amazon
resellers. Your not certain from one day to the next just what you'll be
wrapping...but this versatile system can do so much! Protect and
preserve your inventory or bundle your products. Maximize the return on your cameras and accessories
bundling components, parts and manuals together. Tired of losing cords,
cables, connectors, manuals and other important parts to your pawned
video game consoles? Bundle EVERYTHING together, along with some games
you have extra copies of, to make value-added packs...that are good for
you...and great for your customers.
Confectioners & Chocolatiers
Unless you regularly wrap LARGE baskets,
this is the right selection for you. Wrap small baskets, platters, trays
and boxes quickly and easily. Requires less heat to shrink
down, and does not exert as much pressure on your items, so delicates,
like ganache, or flimsy packages won't get smushed.
Each system includes
- A "free-arm" sealing wand. Not attached to the unit. Much more versatile and productive to use than stationary arm
systems (I-Bar systems).
- A special heat resistant pad and a cushioning pad
that goes underneath the machine and on top of the sealing surface to be
used to protect against any damage and to make sealing the film with
the wand easier on less than optimal surfaces. Other systems include a
pad 13" wide...Ours is a full 36" wide (rolls up for space-saving & storage!) giving you almost 3 times the working surface!
- An Instructional video that shows you how to set up
and use the system, wrap your products, wrap your gift baskets and gives
you many ideas we've picked up from our thousands of satisfied
- A film carrier/dispenser that supports and protects
the roll of film, allowing it to be rolled out without spooling. There
is a special dividing bar on the carrier that separates the two layers
of film as you dispense it, so you're not fighting the static charge
while trying to separate them.
- A FULL roll of 500' 60 gauge biodegradable Polyolefin centerfold shrink film
- Our own professional light-weight
dual-temp heat gun with high and low settings. Specially designed for
shrink packaging. Much easier and less tiring than older, heavier models
that don't offer any better service.
Works on standard 110V (220V available in systems 18" and larger). Easy
to use, the finished product is indistinguishable from items
sealed with systems costing 10 times as much! Good for wrapping,
bundling and gift basketing*.
cosmetics, perfume, books, copies, artwork and matted prints (we include
acid-free film for them!), cookies, fudge, brownies, DVD's, CD's,
Videos and Game Carts, bundled items etc .....you can even wrap
chocolate too! Professionally shrink wrap your packages for just pennies with this easy-to-use system.
MADE IN THE USA, this system features a DETACHED
SEALING WAND...so when you're wrapping smaller items, like soaps,
fragrance, candles, lotions, boxes, candy, books, office supplies etc etc...you
can seal multiple packages with a single operation!
Saponifiers...(that's soapmakers to the rest
of you!) if you make and wrap soap...the ease and efficiency with which
you can now wrap your product will stun you! How does 12 bars
(professionally wrapped) in a one minute sound? ...IT'S ALL IN THE
INCLUDED INSTRUCTIONAL DVD! Compare THAT to your Saran-wrapping and
Sam's Wrapping efforts! Wrapping a dozen bars of soap (or any such small
item) would only take about 7 seals if you arrange them in rows and
columns on the sealing pad. (Check out our special page for
soapers...with a video demo here)
Compare that to the 2 seals PER PACKAGE fixed-arm units require...not
to mention the fact that you'd have to pick up each item TWICE, once to
seal and a second time to re-position it next to the sealing surface for
trimming. With a detached sealing wand system, you bring the sealing
operation to your product quickly and efficiently.
you're wrapping gift baskets or other oddly shaped items...you can
custom cut the film to the proper shape with a twist of the
wrist...without having to reposition the basket, film or product! You
can create custom bags to the size of your baskets without having to
have dozens of pre-cut shrink bags or cello bags to go through to see
which one fits. It only takes One Minute to cut, wrap and shrink your gift baskets with our system! The Instructional DVD/Video shows you how.
How's that compared to 20 minutes with cello or other
wrapping products. Not only that, shrink-wrapping your baskets holds
your products in place and to make your baskets extra secure, use Glue Dots™ to hold your products in place. (We sell them for $36.50 for a
box of 2000.)
if you have to wrap something LARGER than your film will allow,
DOUBLING THE CAPACITY OF YOUR FILM takes only a minute or so as you can
open up the centerfolded film (to double its width) and seam two pieces
together, so you needn't buy a larger system just because you have an
occasional oversized package or basket...IT'S ALL IN THE INCLUDED
Please Note: We have systems in a number of sizes,
from 8" (good for single CD's, videos, etc) to 30" (suitable for big,
matted prints and humongous baskets).
systems are sold with a 30 Day money-back
guarantee and a 2 Year warranty...parts, service and labor included!
Other systems require a $25 kit to fix a simple broken wire! For 2
years...parts are free and when you're out of warranty, repair kits
start at only $4.00...and there's no minimum order. (When ordering, please indicate what
you are going to be wrapping so we can include the right film for what
you want to do. It's to our advantage that the system works well for
you...and using the right film is a big step in that direction. This
does not affect the cost of the system...only how well it works!
Finding the right system for your Gift Baskets:
To determine the right width of film and the right
sized system for your gift basketing, measure the circumference of
a basket you'd typically wrap. Place your flexible ruler on the top of
the handle and wrap it around the bottom of the basket...back up to
where you started., add 10%, Divide by 2, and round up to the next even
number...that will determine the width of the film, and typically, the
system, you'll need. For occasional larger baskets, you can double the
capacity of the film...but this is an accommodation...not a production
technique. Please feel free to call to discuss
your specific application.
Polyolefins are soft shrink films with a feel similar to that of your
standard Ziploc-type sandwich bag. There are two processes by which
polyolefin is manufactured, the latest of which is a method called
cross-linking. Cross-linked polyolefin yields a stronger, more
puncture-resistant film than shrink packaging produced by the old
method. It's more expensive than standard films and is usually sold
under the PREMIUM FILM designation. Polyolefin,
an FDA-approved-for-food-contact film is breathable, freezable,
microwaveable and allows the scent through the film WHETHER PERFORATED
We originally perforated many of our film selections for the benefit of
our many goat's milk and dairy-based soapers, whose bars need to
"breathe" (to avoid rancidity from any dairy components). While these
perforations allow the scent through quickly on wrapping...given a day
or so, the scent of the soap will still come through the non-perforated
polyolefin films as well. Another reason many of our soapers, even those
not using milk in their recipe, prefer the perforated films is that the
perforations allow any air trapped in your package to escape.
Sometimes, without the pinholes, if you perfectly seal a bar of soap, it
will trap the air in the package as well...and puff up like a little
pillow as you shrink it down. The technique to resolve this minor issue,
is to squeeze the bar as you handle it normally for shrinking. The air
will find a way out, while other than squeezing the bar, you haven't
really done anything extra, or taken any extra time.
If you'll be wrapping individual bars only, 60 gauge is the film of
choice. (Just to give you some perspective on the film, Apple uses 60
gauge film wrapping iPads). Thinner, easier to cut and seal and quicker
to shrink than any of the other films, this film is available in
standard, perforated and Soft Shrink varieties. Soft shrink polyolefin
is a special formulation that requires less heat to shrink down, a big
plus for wrapping butters and other heat sensitive items, and it exerts
less force during the shrinking process...so if your decorative bars
feature delicate designs, like the petals on a soap rose...or you make
shaped soaps, like pie slices, muffins etc, you might want to opt for
this variant of 60 gauge film as it conforms to shapes better than other
If you've "gone green" there is a 60 gauge (only!) biodegradable film,
Biolefin™ , that will serve the same purposes as standard film, but take
90% less time to degrade in the environment, and in a landfill
situation, it will decompose into biomass in a span of 3-5 years. It's
available perforated or not, and, as do all polyolefins, allows the
scent of your soaps through whether perforated or not.
