There are two sizes of subwraps: one suited for a footlong, and one suited for a six-inch, though a six-inch may be wrapped in a footlong wrap if needed.
Wrapping a sub Edit
The best position from which to wrap a sandwich can be described as an equal T:
- A line drawn from the far corner of the subwrap directly down to meet the sub at a right angle would meet it in the middle of the sub and form a ⟂ (upside-down T).
- The right and left corners of the subwrap are of roughly equal distance to the sub itself - in a strictly horizontal direction.
These practices are exemplified in the image above. Below, we see three ways for a subwrap to be poorly placed, leading to a poorly wrapped sub:
A properly wrapped sandwich appears as below:
Subwrap label EditA sticker adorned with the SUBWAY logo, known as a subwrap label, is available to seal six-inch sandwiches; it may be used for footlongs as well, but they will generally hold together better.
The sticker features a non-adhesive tab for ease of application and removal, but note that the non-adhesive portion of the sticker extends in a straight line to the opposite end of the sticker. A properly configured dispenser makes it easy to pick up subwrap labels by the non-adhesive tab, by pulling on the residual backing paper which exposes that tab.
