Shrink Wrap Soap Bands (200 Count): With our simple to use shrink wrap soap bands, you can easily provide a professional finish for your soap without investing in a heat tunnel. Our Shrink Wrap bands shrink down with the application of heat from a heat gun. Although a hair dryer will work, it won't achieve the smooth, fully shrunken wrap results. Best of all, they have a perforated easy-open strip for ease of use when your customer gets their soap home. Hint: If you have small soap, just cut the Shrink Wrap Band in half to fit smaller bars easily.
Note: These shrink wrap soap bands were originally created for our Birchwood Molds (9 Bar, 18 Bar and 36 Bar), but will also work well with our wooden loaf molds and our 10” Silicone Loaf Mold.
Made from PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) plastic
Dimensions: 3 15/16" x 3 7/16" (opens on this side). Tear strip runs the 3 15/16" length.
These were perfect for my soaps! I use a hairdryer and I got them to work with no problems. I also don't have any wrinkles on them. They're smooth, wrinkle-free and cover the edges perfectly. The key with a hairdryer is once you have the bands mostly shrunk on the one side, get the hairdryer as close as you can to the band without touching it and smoothe it out and it does the trick for getting any wrinkles out! I will definitely be buying these again. Please don't get rid of these!
After reading reviews here, but needing a better way to wrap my soap, I took the plunge. I am very happy I did.
I ordered 200 bands. The first band was a test, and I had not added my label so it came off after my initial success. 1 wrapper "wasted".
It took me 2 wrappers to understand to put the tear-away strip on the bottom of my soap, not a full side. The amount of heat to get a good wrinkle-free wrap it too great for the strips, and they pop. So making sure to rotate that strip to the bottom edge gives me a good clear wrinkle-free facing and just the barest of passes on the bottom where the strip is.
I have wasted a total of 7 wraps. 4 of which were entirely my fault as I used the wrong label and needed to re-wrap them.
I love these wrappers. They fit the 10" Silicone Mold very well (some of my bars are a tad over 1") and they fit my Card Box loaves perfectly. I was afraid they wouldn't. (Card Boxes from the local gaming store, hold Magic the Gathering or Baseball Cards)
I received my wraps today but alas they don't fit my taller soaps. My fault as I didn't read the description of the size. Will you be offering larger sizes as I do love, love, love these wraps!
I just recieved my bands a couple of days ago and I used them with no problems. I must order more in the future.
This was my first time ordering this shrink wrap bands and I'm going to compare them to what else is on the market wrt shrink wrap soap bands. First, the are about 1/4" smaller than others, however this is noted in the listing. Second, they are thinner, noticeably thinner. I was worried this would cause problems when shrinking the bands, and it did. Third, about half the bands ripped while shrinking which means I had to get the ripped packaging off and try again with another. I do use a heat gun but I use a setting that has never caused problems with other shrink wrap products. I find this to be an inferior product and would not purchase again or recommend.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Rachael! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this product. We love our Shrink Wrap Soap Bands and how easy they are to use. We use them in our soap lab all the time and have not had any problems with them ripping as seen in our How to Shrink Wrap Soap tutorial. Though, it can be tricky to get the temperature and timing of shrinking just right. The bands will rip if they are overheated or heated for too long.
