The world of labeling is constantly changing and today the rate of innovation is even more rapid. Industry trends on sustainable packaging and lean manufacturing have caused many companies to focus on in-mold decoration for injection molding. That's why InkWorks has created a line of in-mold label products specifically designed for injection molding.
