You pay per impression (or package) for printed shrink films. Prices are based on 1,000 impressions. Some MOQs apply. These prices can range from $240-$500 or more for 5,000 impressions.
Quality will also be important to consider when finding lower prices elsewhere.
If you were to order 100,000 impressions, pricing can be as low as $50-$70 per impression. You can expect a +/- of 10-20% tolerance (fluctuation) in the production of impressions.
Printed Films have a wide range of factors that impact the cost, so it's difficult to provide an exact price.
When Printing for the first time: You will need your design, colors, printing plates will have to be made, samples will be run and then approved. All of this takes time and money upfront.
If you run multiple designs, you pay for additional colors above the base colors, regardless of the amount of SKUs.
Once plates are accepted, items that change the cost from here would be changing colors, the price of the film which fluctuates and is dependent on the resin market.
Plates are good for a limited time, around 8 years. If not used for extended periods, they may need to be re-evaluated. If a plate expires, new plates will have to be made.
