Magenta LLC of Downers Grove, IL, a sister company of injection-molder Permian Plastics, was recently honored with a 2013 Gold Award from the In-Mold Decorating Association for the innovative use of IML (in-mold labeling) in their new “Classic”, all-purpose, travel beverage cup.

The award was bestowed in the “Best Injection Molded (IML) Package” division and recognized Magenta’s use of IML technology to actually fuse a custom, four-color image with the exterior cup material during the manufacturing process. The result is a cup image that far outlasts a screen printed image and will not peel, scratch off or degrade with repeated dishwashings. The IML technology is perfect for customizing high-quality, four-color images for novelty and promotional products. The environmentally-friendly, American-made “Classic cup” also features a proprietary, ultra leak-resistant lid design with fun flipper color options.

“We are proud to be associated with Magenta and congratulate them on receiving this honor from IMDA,” said Dale Emge, President of O’Fallon, MO-based Permian Plastics.

MDA is an organization of molders, printers, material suppliers, and equipment manufacturers who are committed to the development and growth of in-mold decorating products, technologies, and markets.
