In-Mold Labels (IML)

IML is the perfect merger of label and container

IML — your packaging dream come true.  Offering all surface branding (even the bottom), structural integrity, and lightweight containers.  Unlike other label types that must be applied to a finished container, IML and blow mold labels are placed in the mold and become a part of the plastic container wall itself providing a no-label look to the product.

In-mold labels are a great option if sustainability is on your mind. They make for easy recyclability, since the label and container are made from the same material.

We’re the pioneers that brought IML to North America. Our expertise consists of pre-die cut, roll-fed IML, as well as blow mold packaging. We continue to invest in the IML label segment purchasing state of the art offset presses and a dedicated IML facility.
