In-Mold Graphics

Sanwa specializes in designing and producing unique in-mold components and graphic overlays. Our one-stop-shop concept means we’re equipped to meet your demands for high quality, wear resistance and rapid delivery. At Sanwa, we’re here to help give your product, and your business, a competitive edge.

What Are In-Mold Graphics?

In-mold graphics systems, also known as in-mold labeling or in-mold decorating, are designed to outperform any post-production labeling alternatives. By applying graphic effects during the injection molding cycle, your design becomes a part of your product, rather than an adhesive label or painted overlay.

The result? High-end graphic effects that are made to last. In-mold graphics diminish the occurrence of variations and defects, reduce waste, and can be used to give your product a unique and aesthetic edge.
