Dr. Notes – News from Mike
“Hello everyone! I have spent this week in Dubai working the Dubai International Boat Show with our distributors. There were several absolutely beautiful boats in the water at the show. Our trade show booth was constructed by hand and made of wood. The entire booth was then completely shrink wrapped; even the pillows on the chairs were shrink wrapped. A very neat presentation and it certainly drew people in.
On another note, we have seen an increase in inquiries and calls regarding shrink wrap for roofing applications. Dr. Shrink, Inc. offers a complete line of shrink wrapping products used to protect and/or compartmentalize structures after natural disasters or while remediation/restoration work is being done. Shrink wrap can be used to easily cover entire buildings, roofs, or other specific areas that are damaged.
Dr. Shrink’s premium shrink wrap shrinks “drum-tight” and is far more effective than traditional tarps and sheeting. Our durable, weatherproof covering creates a proper enclosure and protects the project from further or potential damage. Also, our specialty Flame Retardant Shrink Wrap meets or exceeds all NFPA 701 specifications
-Mike Stenberg President & CEO, Dr. Shrink, Inc.

The Protection Needed for Transport & Storage of Product
It’s maddening when a product – of whatever size – is damaged during transit or storage. Many businesses just chalk is up to the cost of doing business. Preventing damage of product during transport or storage is essential for any business. Tarps, custom wooden crating, and cardboard packaging can be very costly and ineffective.
Products and goods become exposed during transportation and storage to a variety of happenings capable of rendering damage. Weather, human error, accidents and more are capable of spurring unsaleables.
At Dr. Shrink we offer premium pallet bags which not only eliminate problems typically associated with shipping and transporting skidded products, but also simplify the packaging and shrink wrapping process.
For products or equipment too large for pallet bags, our premium shrink wrap film, available in 12 to 60 feet, is the best option. You can rest assured as your product travels across country or is being tucked away for storage that they have the best protection possible.
How It Works:
The simple application includes installing the pallet bag over the skidded products, tucking the bottom of the bag under or around the skid (if possible) and then heat shrinking the bag.

Recycling Your Shrink Wrap Covers
It’s that time of year again! With spring right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking of the warmer weather and removing those shrink wrap covers. Dr. Shrink wants to help – we have 2 different programs in place to make it an easy process for you.
REBAG Recycling Kit:
The REBAG Recycling Program works across the Continental US and comes in a complete kit that includes a 30″ x 50″ clear bag with cover removal directions printed on it, a closure device and a prepaid FedEx shipping label. All you have to do is remove all strapping, buckles, vents, zipper doors, etc. before stuffing the bag full of the plastic. Then just take the bag to a FedEx drop off location or give them a call to come pick it up.
Recycling Run 2019:
For the 10th year, we’re partnering with Bay Area Recycling for Charities (BARC) in an effort to recycle shrink wrap covers with our Recycling Run. This program offers an environmentally friendly option to all local boat storage facilities, marinas and boat owners, asking them to help the environment by recycling your shrink wrap. This program is only available throughout Michigan.
Dr. Shrink’s premium shrink wrap is a 100% virgin resin material that is easily recycled into a variety of usable consumer products. Shrink wrap will NOT biodegrade in a landfill – that’s why it is extremely important to recycle.
