In-Mold Labeling (IML) and Decoration (IMD)

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. We’re here to help give your product and business a competitive edge.

In-mold labeling—also known as in-mold decorating or in-mold graphics—is a process designed to outperform other post-production labeling alternatives.

By applying a label during the injection molding cycle, your design becomes a part of your product, rather than an adhesive or painted overlay.

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