Flexographic Printing

Flexographic printing uses wet inks and printing plates to transfer an image or text onto various substances

Flexographic Printing

Flexo printing uses printing plates - one for each colour and one for each spot varnish. These plates take a wet or liquid ink and transfer it onto the substrate. The wet inks are either water based, evaporation dryed or UV cured.

We have each colour on its own plate and these are then installed in a press, brought into register and then the job is printed.

Up to eight colours can be printed in each ‘pass’ with second or even third passes available if required.

With laminating, cold foil, reverse side printing, adhesive printing, spot varnish, top and/or bottom side die cutting the opportunities are almost endless.

These presses are roll to roll, roll to sheet or roll to fold (zig zag).
