Flexographic printing is a method used commonly for the printing of virtually any flexible material. Using a technique similar to that of the old-fashioned letterpress, the flexographic printing process consists of photopolymer printing plates and the rotating cylinders of a web press. These photopolymer plates are inked with raised images that then quickly rotate to transfer the imprint of the raised image onto the desired material.
The main advantage to flexographic printing is essentially the efficiency at which the printing process occurs. Not only do these machines run at top speeds, but they also allow you to produce large orders without constant interruptions. More suited for projects that are longer to run, these machines are able to print on virtually any flexible material, absorbent or non-absorbent. In short, the advantages of flexographic printing are:
Top speed printing ability
Ability to print on a variety of materials
Great for long-run projects with little interruptions
Includes processes of printing, laminating & die-cutting in a single run
Although flexographic printing reaps many benefits, the cost of the photopolymer printing plates can run quite high. Because of this, taking advantage of a label manufacturer for specific label reselling needs can be highly cost-effective.
