In this blog, I will explain to you the different ways of wrapping a soap as listed below:
- Shrink Wrapping

- Paper Wrapping
Shrink wrapping is one of the simple ways to wrap a soap. The process is really simple and affordable.
Tools Required for shrink wrapping
- Shrink Wrapping Bags
- Heat Sealer

Process of shrink soap wrapping
The process is pretty simple! you just have to take a shrink wrapping bag and seal it from one side by using a heat sealer. After sealing the bottom side of the shrink wrapping bag place your soap in the middle of the wrapping bag. Seal the other sides of the bag, do it from the top of the bag first and then the other sides of the bag. Don’t worry if the bag’s size is too big. I'll tell you how to fix it.
When the soap is completely covered with the wrapping bag it turns to use the heat sealer again. Place the bag’s sides in the heat sealer blades and wait for 2 or 3 seconds. When you get the bag it completely fits with the soap and finds some gaps in the air. Here you have to use your heat gun to fix the air gaps. Don’t use a hair dryer to fix the gaps. It is not enough to fix the gaps in the shrink wrapping bag. Heat all sides of the bag to fix the air gaps of the bag. After the heating process, you can paste your logo printed labels on the bag.
Here your soap is ready with a shrink wrapping bag!
Note: This process is only useful for disk-shaped and round or circular-shaped soaps, it is not applicable for heart and star-like soaps.
Belly Band Wrapping
Belly Bands seem to be paper strips that form a jacket for wrapping soap bars, displaying a segment of each bar. You can wrap belly bands around your soaps in either a lengthwise or widthwise pattern, and they come in a range of widths and weights from which to choose. You can print your company’s logo and ingredients on the wrap that will be more attractive and appealing for the customer experience. It is comparatively expensive from the shrink soap wrapping.
Materials used in belly band soap wrapping
Generally, belly bands are made of the following materials:
- Kraf or eco-friendly
- Cardboard or cardstock
You can go with your desired material for wrapping your soap.
Wax Paper Wrapping
Wax paper wrapping is one of the best ways to wrap soap because it allows the customer to smell and see the colors of the soap. In this process, you just have to take wax paper and cut it 3 times your soap. After this just wrap all of the soap in the wax paper. Fold the top and bottom remaining parts of the paper nicely. You can use tape or glue to fix it better. After wrapping the soap you can paste your logo printed labels on the wrapped soap for your branding. The process is pretty simple but maybe time taking.
Another choice is paper wrapping using wax, parchment, or tissue paper, particularly if you want to take a more individualized, gift-like touch to the packaging.
The purpose is to package your soap like a gift with paper that has been trimmed to the right size and then finished with a ribbon, label, or sticker to keep everything in place. Although it takes more time, this approach is more elegant and, if you use transparent paper, still allows them to see what you're selling.
