In Mold Labeling & Decorating Plastics

In-Mold Labeling (IML) is the process of labeling or decorating a plastic object while it is being molded. The resulting part has permanent graphics with superior durability. This process eliminates the need for a secondary operation such as pad printing, or heat transfer labeling to add branding, user instructions or decoration. IML is used commonly on items such as shampoo and dish soap bottles (blow molded) but it is becoming more popular for injection molded items as well. A major benefit of IML is that it can add the ability to customize an injection molded product because you can change the graphics on the label without having to make any changes to the mold. Other Product decorating services include pad printing, screen printing, hot stamping, and heat transfer decal decorating, as well as decorating irregular shaped parts. Examples can be corporate gifts and screen printed POP displays decorated to specification.
