Advantages of Flexographic Printing
Flexographic label printing is ideal for larger runs of custom printed labels. This printing method offers a wide assortment of materials and technical capabilities such as pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeve films, and holographic labels while using the same flexographic press.
- Large Quantities
Flexographic printing is optimum for high volume orders. After the initial setup costs, which include creating printing plates, flexographic becomes more cost-effective with the more you print.
Our flexographic presses typically run several hundred feet of material per minute once set up to run a specific label. Setting up a flexographic press can result in a lot of the production time and material waste. In some cases, the set up time for a job on a flexographic press can take several hours. The big advantage to flexographic press is that once a job is set up on the press, it can be run very quickly relative to the speed of running a label job on a digital press.
- 10-Color Capability
We use the standard four color process of cyan, magenta, yellow and black colored inks. However, our presses are capable of six additional ink stations to be used for multiple variations of any single color, spot colors, specialized inks, underprinting, or even laminate coatings.
- Diverse Materials
Flexographic printing allows for a wide range of materials, from paper, plastic or vinyl films, metal foils, as well as metalized paper and metalized film materials. This makes holographic, rainbow and other special materials available options.
- Complex Processes
Cold-foiling, silk-screening and embossing are all possible with flexographic printing. The technical capabilities of our flexographic presses are easily modified to meet the needs for many different label projects.
- Diverse Products
Flexographic printing accommodates a diverse range of label products. For example, we offer coupon label printing, respositionable labels, removable labels and multi-layer labels. We also grant the option to have your product labels delivered on rolls or sheets.
