• Marine Industry

This month the Dr. is highlighting products and services as it relates to the Marine & Recreation Industry. No matter the size and depth of the waters our boats traverse, they are our vessels to adventure and enjoyment. They are also a large investment with critical dependence on maintenance and care. Shrink wrap is a tremendous asset for ship yard or marina owners in increasing profitability. There is a great profit margin for shrink wrapping boats and the profit grows the larger the boat gets. If you are currently a boat/ship yard or marina owner that offers winterization services, by adding shrink wrapping as a service, boat owners will get a complete winterization package from your company when they pull their boats out of the water. If refinishing or remodeling a yacht, shrink wrap assists the process by acting as an enclosure. Additionally, shrink wrapped boats can be worked on year round– and you’ll have no worries about chafing, abrasion, scratching, and other concerns.
At. Dr. Shrink, we stock a complete line of American-made shrink wrap products capable of wrapping any size or type of boat. With premium shrink wrap available up to 60 feet wide, even the largest of boats can be protected from shipping or storage damage. Dr. Shrink only supplies premium 100% virgin resin shrink wrap featuring maximum UV inhibitors. This high quality material ensures long-term usage and maximum protection. Unlike tarps, the shrink wrap will protect from most weather damage, is waterproof, and offers one-piece coverage.

• Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Dr. Shrink wants to help. For every roll of PINK shrink wrap purchased during October, we will donate $10.00 per roll towards the cause. There’s no better way to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness than by showing/wearing/promoting the color pink. Promote awareness by adding pink to your wardrobe, wallet/purse, and of course your shrink wrap jobs during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
Take a look at our video of shrink wrapping a brand new car at the local Ford Dealership for their annual “Pink Out” car show. See our recent blog for other applications that were wrapped in our pink material.
