Unifoil Corporation (www.unifoil.com) is pleased to announce that its award-winning patented and patents-pending Ultralustre® technology has been used to create brilliant metallized in-mold-label plastic cups.

An in-mold-label cup made with Ultralustre, available in metallic silver and or any stock or custom holographic design, is ideal for use as a stadium cup at entertainment venues such as theme parks, sports events, and concerts, and as a coveted collectible. The new metallic KRŌM™ cups manufactured by IGH Solutions provide consumers with a premium item that stands up to the rigors of reuse or long-term handling. Unique, eye-catching KRŌM™ cups that host brand graphics and messages are the newest marketing innovation available to end users and marketing decision makers.
