Dr. Notes - News from Mike
"It's hard to believe September is already here. This will be a busy month of traveling and trade shows for our sales team-- if you are in the area of one of our shows, stop by and see us. You can check out where we'll be in the trade show section below. 

Please don't forget to take advantage of our 10% early buy discount  on our premium shrink wrap. This offer is good until September 15th by using online promo code: FALL17 or by mentioning the fall discount over the phone.

There is always interest and questions regarding shrink wrapping a pontoon boat for winter storage. I'm pleased to announce we have a brand new How-To Training Video on the simple steps for installing a shrink wrap cover on a pontoon boat.  The video is featured below or you can also view it by clicking here.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend! We'll be using our new outdoor patio area today to have a pre-Labor Day BBQ for the team-- grilling some hot-dogs and making fried green tomatoes picked from our very own Dr. Shrink garden. Hope you all enjoy the weekend with family and friends."
This month the Dr. is highlighting products and services as it relates to the Marine & Recreation Industry. Despite only 3 primary peak months, the Marine and Recreation Industry is one of the most recognized and well-known in the shrink wrap industry. With recognition comes saturation, and this is the most competitive industry in shrink wrap. It is essential to provide quality products and service to your customers-- rest assured when you use Dr. Shrink products, you are using the highest quality products on the market. 

Typically for Marine and Recreation applications you're going to use a 6 or 7-mil material. The 6-mil is our thinnest shrink wrap and is used on smaller items such as boats, shed frames, pallets and machinery that will be stored rather than transported. Our 7-mil is the standard thickness for shrink wrapping boat in snow load areas, for light construction jobs and for medium sized machinery that will be transported. 

Questions on what size wrap to use, what color, or what mil thickness is right for you? Visit our designated website page  here or call us at 800-968-5147.

All of Dr. Shrink's products are made with you, the user, in mind to make your lives easier and your shrink wrap jobs hassle-free. Working from the top of the picture down, we will explain how working with Dr. Shrink's products will help to eliminate hassles and hurdles before, during, and after the shrink wrapping process.

1) Our shrink wrap knives are made with a safe-hooded blade so you won't scratch your boat or cut yourself during the shrink wrapping process. 
2) Dr. Shrink's shrink wrap is 100% virgin resin material and will NOT biodegrade in a landfill, so it is very important that it is recycled. We offer our REBAG® Program throughout the Continental US that allows you to recycle your shrink wrap scraps and entire covers. Please don't throw it in a dumpster! 
3) Our Zipper Access Doors are taped on the finished cover of your object and allow you access into it without compromising the durability of the cover. 
4) Our Shrinkfast® Extensions are available in 2', 4', or 6' lengths. They help you get all those hard-to-reach surfaces and allow you to be safe without having to be unbalanced on a tall ladder. 
5) Dr. Shrink's Film Racks and Carts are a great way to keep yourself organized and to keep your shrink wrap off the ground. Shrink wrap produces static and it will easily collect dirt and debris if it's left on the ground. These small pieces of dirt and debris can cause holes in your covers. Our Film Racks easily hold our shrink wrap rolls and keep them off the ground.

If you have any questions on the above products, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 800.968.5147 or email us

Dog of the Month: Loki Stenberg Dog

Here at D r. Shrink, Inc. we are an animal friendly office (to say the least!) and our pets are part of our family. There are 6 dogs and an office cat that roam around on a daily basis, so we decided we should introduce them to you. You may have heard a few of the more vocal dogs through the phone when you call. We are featuring each of our dogs so you can put a face with the voice!

Meet Loki - Mike Stenberg (President & CEO) is Loki's owner. Loki is an Alaskan Klee Kai, miniature Husky who was born in Minnesota about 8 years ago. He's a little bit aloof, but once he likes you, he will always like you. He's very loyal, enjoys running, loves to come to work, and yodels like he's from Switzerland when Mike comes back from anywhere.

For the month of September take advantage of our special pricing on our 3" x 1000' Anti-Chafe Tape - only $29.21/roll!

Dr. Shrink's Anti-Chafe Tape is a high performance polyethylene tape that provides a tough, puncture resistant material to prevent abrasion. This tape is a low-tack film that acts as a barrier between the shrink wrap cover and the object you are shrink wrapping. 

Simply apply the tape directly to the object where the shrink wrap touches. The tape prevents any scratching or chafing to the object. The black underside of the tape contains UV inhibitors to prevent the sun from drying out the adhesive.

QUOTE of the Month
Every month Dr. Shrink will be highlighting one of the feedback points from our fantastic customers. Thank you all for being part of the Dr. Shrink Family!

"Providing quality materials, have ordered a couple rolls of shrink wrap, tape and have had great success - even used the tape to hold a bumper fascia together until I could get it repaired."
