A NOTE FROM YOUR DOCTOR:
“As the fall shrink wrap season is fast approaching, I want to let you know that we are here to help you in every step of getting your boats, RVs, patio furniture, and outdoor equipment wrapped up for the winter season. I highly recommend ordering your film and accessories early this year so you can be stocked and ready to go when the calls come in to schedule jobs. Also, now is the time to make sure your heat tools are in proper working condition. We are offering a 10% off early-repair discount on all heat tool parts. Our heat tool technician is also available to troubleshoot any existing problems or issues with your gun. Take advantage of these opportunities! I want to see all of our shrink wrap installers have a successful shrink wrap season. Being a shrink wrap installer myself 20+ years ago, I know how busy and chaotic the season can get; it is imperative that you get organized and prepared ahead of time.
Remember while doing your shrink wrap shopping this season of the Dr. Shrink value you receive with our line of products. Our product line and the American-made quality is what sets Dr. Shrink apart from low cost and low quality products. We stand behind every roll of shrink wrap and accessory that we sell, deliver after-the-sale service, and offer prompt service and delivery. Remember that our American-made product line cannot be matched by any other company in the world!
Keep an eye out for our catalogs as they will be coming within the next week or so.”

DR. SHRINK’S PARTICIPATION IN LOCAL RELAY FOR LIFE
The Dr. Shrink, Inc. Shrink Walkers took part in the local Relay for Life here in Manistee this past weekend. It was a beautiful weekend full of sun, fun and walking for a great cause.
To keep track of just how many miles each participant walked, necklaces were available for purchase and for every lap, participants received one bead. Every 7 beads was the equivalent of one mile. Once walkers hit 5 miles, 10 miles and 20 miles, they had the option to sign a board to show how many people have walked that far. There were special laps to recognize local police departments and fire departments as well as a lap to honor all of the survivors.
Dr. Shrink had a Bra Pong board (shrink wrapped in our new PINK shrink wrap, of course) to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness where kids and adults could stand at a line and toss ping pong balls into the bra cups for different points to get a prize. Dr. Shrink also sold homemade packets and jars of Taco Seasoning, Steak Seasoning, Rotisserie Chicken Rub and a Ranch Seasoning. The event was a great success and several members of the Dr. Shrink team participated in the event– Mike Stenberg reached the most miles walked on our team at a completion of 20 miles!
INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT PROTECTION
We all know that it is crucial to vent shrink wrap covers to allow air into the cover and eliminate moisture and mildew from forming. If you are in an area that is very humid or have an object that is prone to moisture buildup, you may want to look into using some of our mildew and moisture control products for added protection. Our VCI products work excellent when shipping or transporting shrink wrapped equipment or machinery.
We are proud to introduce two new products from ProGARDO:
ProGARDO CargoPack 300 (DS-PROCDRI) – Desiccant bags with special characteristics of 300% + absorption rate and polymer encapsulated. Product protects 90 cubic feet and is sold with a convenient hanger for easy placement.

For the month of August, take advantage of our special pricing on our Dr. Shrink Super Cap – only $2.69/each!

Dome shaped and 20″ in diameter, the Super Cap rests on the woven cord strapping running both lengthwise and crosswise, thus minimizing support poles from poking through shrink wrap covers.
