Blow Mold is primarily used for enclosed bottle and jug like containers, where Injection In-Mold labels are used for non bottle shaped containers like cups or buckets. Blow Mold containers are made from molten plastic that is extruded into a hollow tube (a parison), which is placed into the mold. Hot air is blown into the parison, pushing the walls out to take on the shape of the mold and create the container. Injection In-Mold containers are made from molten plastic that is “shot” into a mold to create the container shape. In both processes, the labels are placed into the mold before the container is formed. Injection In-Mold labels are made of the same material as the container so they fuse with the molten plastic and become a part of the wall itself. Because the wall thickness of Blow Molded containers is typically thinner than Injection, a heat activated adhesive is used to help fuse the label to the wall of the container. If you have any questions or an interest in finding out more about Injection In-Mold or Blow Mold labels, please contact us.
There are two main forms of embossing, aesthetic and functional. Aesthetic embossing is aimed at improving the appearance of a label, using techniques such as registered (raised) embossing, linen embossing, and pebble embossing. In contrast, functional embossing uses a special embossing cylinder on press that adds a very fine texture to the paper, which will improve label application and reduce flagging. To learn more about embossing and discuss whether it is right for your label, contact us.
Common border colors, horizontal and vertical, allow us to optimize the sheet for less waste and less cost. Ink bleeds, or overlaps, extend usually 1/8″ past the margin to prevent white areas. When borders have different colors, the space where the inks overlap is cut out, or trimmed (what we call a “trim-out”). When the border colors are the same, an overlap does not require a trim-out. Each border with different colors requires two cuts to trim away the overlap, where it only takes one cut with common borders. These extra cuts add up to extra time and money. Inland Label will work with your designers to optimize your art and print layout without impairing your design to save you time and money. Contact us today to receive your complimentary guide to cost effective label design and to discuss your label optimization options.

We help you choose the correct substrate, size, shape, ink, coating and print press combination to reduce waste and eliminate costs from the entire supply chain.
