In-Mold Decorating Right For You?


In-mold decorating (IMD) is a process in which a pre-printed label or graphic is placed inside a mold before injection molding, resulting in a decorated finished product. Total Plastic Solutions can work with you to realize some of the benefits of IMD including:

  • Durable and scratch-resistant: The graphics and labels are protected by the molded plastic, making them highly durable and resistant to scratches and wear.
  • Aesthetic appeal: IMD allows for highly detailed graphics and labels that are integrated seamlessly into the final product, resulting in a highly aesthetic and visually appealing appearance.
  • Cost-effective: IMD can be a cost-effective alternative to other decorating methods, such as pad printing, painting or hot stamping, as it eliminates the need for additional decorating steps.
  • Design flexibility: IMD allows for a high degree of design flexibility, including the ability to incorporate multiple colors and textures, and to customize designs for individual products.
  • Production efficiency: IMD is a highly automated process, allowing for high-volume production with minimal labor costs and reduced material waste.
  • Brand recognition: IMD can help to enhance brand recognition by providing a highly visible and distinctive product appearance that can be easily recognized by customers.

Successful In-Mold Decorating projects depend on a strong relationship between product development and manufacturing partners. Total Plastic Solutions looks forward to helping you solve your next complex engineering problem with an elegant contract manufacturing solution.
