Hi my graphic designer is working on custom logo and mockup for my ice cream lid. The company I am buying ice cream pints and lids from doesn't sell shrink bands with the items, so i have to go to a different site to get those. The shrink band site has A lot of different sizes so I'm not sure which one will fit my products. Any idea how I can figure out the proper dimensions for a shrink band from the photo? The measurements are in inches.! Photo of lid dimensions! . The site I'm trying to get the shrink bands from says to use this formula to find the dimensions but this is where I get confused ! Site description how to find measurements
This is much more a "basic math" question, than a graphic design one.
You simply need the circumference of a circle, given its diameter. The formula is C = πd, so circumference of your band equals roughly 12.742 (3.14 * 4.0709) inches.
The height of your band is up to you, but probably taller than your lid (which seems a bit taller than 0.65 inches)
