Shrink Wrap Used as Art in Norway Museum

The versatility of shrink wrap still amazes all of us!   Alfa Solutions in Norway recently used shrink wrap as a form of art at a museum; and the pictures are amazing!  Shrink wrap provides a custom, form-fitting cover for any size object and these pictures prove that statement to be completely true.  It is easy to tell what each shrink wrapped object is because of the level of custom-fitting protection shrink wrap offers. Take a look and see if you can figure out what each shrink wrapped object is.  Great job to Alfa Solutions!

Dr. Shrink Wraps the Yacht Teleport


There are many amazing people in this world, each with equally amazing stories to share.  Dr. Shrink has had the pleasure of working with some of these wonderful people over the years.  Today we wanted to highlight the incredible story of Chris Bray, Jess Taunton, and their yacht named Teleport and explain how Dr. Shrink is now tied into their story.
Chris and Jess are adventurists from Australia.  In 2009, they purchased a yacht in Canada that was in need of some major refurbishing.  After spending three months rebuilding in 2010, the yacht was fixed up and given a new name, Teleport.   Since then, Chris and Jess have been sailing Teleport back home to Australia in stages each year, stopping along the way to see some of the world’s most fascinating places. Beginning their journey from Halifax in Nova Scotia this year, the duo have now sailed her up the east coast of Canada, across the notorious Labrador Sea to Greenland, up Greenland’s treacherous iceberg filled west-coast, and across into the infamous Northwest Passage in the Arctic above Canada.
Throughout their journey, they have been sharing their experiences with the entire world via the internet and blogging.  Many people have followed Chris and Jess’ amazing story and have been able to see some of the breathtaking sights they’ve had the privilege to see.   Some people have even become sponsors for their voyages donating supplies, gear, and anything else that would help them along their trip.
Chris approached Dr. Shrink’s CEO Mike Stenberg via email about being their shrink wrap supplier for when they have to let the Teleport lay over for a period of time.  Chris had just been covering the yacht with tarps and knew there was a better and more effective solution out there.  Very fascinated by their story, Mike has agreed to be their sponsor and is now the premium shrink wrap supplier for Teleport!
We are very proud to be supporting these amazing people traveling the world, doing something that they truly love and are passionate about.  If you would like to follow the story of Chris and Jess or to see Dr. Shrink’s special sponsorship page, please follow this link to read more about their incredible journey thus far.
