Flexographic (or “flexo”) printing operates by using flexible plastic plates which are mounted on cylinders to apply inks to labels one color at a time. This process works with almost any label substrate or packaging material including metallic films, cellophane, foil, papers, plastic, and acetate films.
Flexographic printing is ideal for high-volume runs of product labels. Our printers can duplicate artwork and color between flexographic and digital printing, so customers can vary between orders of short and long runs depending on their needs.
Flexographic printing has a number of unique capabilities including perforation, scoring, laminating, die cutting, fanfolding, and sheeting. This diverse range of capabilities is perfect for industries that demand unique labeling solutions such as gourmet food and beverage labels, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical products.
Perfect for smaller runs of 10,000 custom labels or less, digital printing allows for crisp high-quality graphics at a reasonable price. Additionally, variable printing technology means that printing labels for product families couldn’t be easier.
The versatility of digital printing is something that most other printing methods simply cannot deliver. Digital printing provides a reduced time to market, zero replating costs, easy-to-manage product changes, and prototypes that use the exact material and coatings and their label orders. Our printers can duplicate artwork and color between flexographic and digital printing, so customers can vary between orders of short and long runs depending on their needs.
