At National Shrinkwrap, we DO NOT import our shrink systems from overseas, slap our name on them and sell them as our own. We custom manufacture and assemble each and every one of our systems in the USA.

Each System Includes

  • - A "free-arm" sealing wand that isn't attached to the system. 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 customers.

  • - 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.

  • - Your first roll of shrink film at a significantly discounted cost from our already industry low pricing.  

  • - 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*.

Wrap foodstuffs, 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 can even wrap chocolate too! Professionally shrinkwrap your packages for just pennies with this easy-to-use system.


MADE IN THE USA, this system features a DETACHED SEALING when you're wrapping smaller items, like soaps, fragrance, CD's, candles, candy, books, office supplies etc 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. See our special page just for Soapers.

When you're wrapping gift baskets or other oddly shaped 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, shrinkwrapping 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 $30.00 for a box of 1000.)

Additionally, 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 INSTRUCTIONAL DVD!

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).

All systems are sold with 24/7 customer support, a 30 Day money-back guarantee and a 2 Year, service and labor included!
Other systems require a $25 kit to fix a simple broken wire! For 2 are free and when you're out of warranty, repair kits start at only $4.00...and there's no minimum order. Call 1-800-423-7971 for answers to any questions. (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 1-800-423-7971 to discuss your specific application.
