Exam Papers

Apologies to students everywhere – shrink wrapping is one of the main ways exam boards ensure your papers reach you securely, safely and in pristine condition on the big day! With its tamper-evident properties, our shrink wrap is a brilliant way of making sure the upcoming questions have not been leaked prior to the test.

Shrink film is a perfect way for banks, minting factories and treasuries to wrap legal tender in its various forms; whether in bricks, folds or flats.
