Determine the tubing size you need:
Measure the circumference of the object to be wrapped and add 5%-10%. Divide that number by 2, this is the size of tubing you need. If the size you need is not available, a larger size can be used because the tubing film has a 40% overall shrinkage rate.

Measure the package around its widest point (you get biggest circumference), add 5%-10% to the number and divide by 2 to determine the width (W) of your bag. Measure the package around its tallest point (you get another biggest circumference), add 10% to the number and divide by 2 to determine the height (depth) or length (L) of your bag. If the size you need is not available, a larger size can be used because shrink bags have a 40% overall shrinkage rate.
