When the moulding operator and the IML printer work together on defining the correct specifications IML labels can be used for decorating a wide range of containers including those moulded with clear, white and coloured polymers.
End-uses can include dry foods, refrigerated foods, frozen, industrial products, garden products, liquids, hardware items, powders, storage containers, toys, novelty containers and others.
IML decoration is possible for correctly developed lids, bases and side-wall combinations. A range of shapes, styles and sizes can be decorated given suitable consultation and testing of label variables.
Complex Container Shapes
Increasingly complex container shapes are using IML decoration across multiple surfaces to satisfy branding opportunities and allow designers greater freedom to use the packaging as a selling point.
By using multiple labels the regulatory requirements, barcodes and other information can be placed away from the primary brand marketing.
