Frequently Asked Questions

What are in-mold labels?

In-mold labels are provided as stacked labels after printing and cutting. The labels are applied during the molding process and become fused with the bottle.

What are the advantages of in-mold labels?

Because in-mold labels are fused with the bottle during manufacturing, they are very durable and will not peel, flag, or curl. When the label film used matches the resin of the plastic container, the label can be recycled and regrinded along with the container.

How are in-mold labels applied?

In-mold labeling is a process in which producing plastic packaging and labeling are done at the same time during manufacturing. The IML is placed inside the mold and fuses with the bottle to become part of the package.
