Flexo Printing for Packaging

“Flexo printing” is an abbreviated term for “flexography” – a process that produces printing from a flexible relief plate. This process allows for printing on almost any material such as plastic, metallic films, cellophane, and paper. It is particularly good for printing vast areas of solid color, especially on food packages because it incorporates food-safe inks.

Flexo printing for packaging incorporates high definition printing on polybags or rollstock for stunning colors and graphic clarity. The reason flexo printing for packaging is so widely used is due to the advancements in the process, which has lead to this high definition, low cost, flexible printed packaging. The process uses photopolymer printing plates, digital technology, fast ink-washout, laser etching, and requires a highly skilled operator. The results are stunning, reproducing photo-quality color values.
