Flexographic Printing for Large Runs
Flexographic label printing can handle a high output level making it ideal for larger runs of labels. Flexographic printing can work with an assortment of materials and technical capabilities such as pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves, foil labels and much more. After the initial setup costs, which include creating printing plates, flexographic becomes more cost-effective with the more labels you order.
Process of Flexographic Presses
Our flexographic presses typically run several hundred feet of material per minute once it’s set up to run labels. Setting up a flexographic press can take a while, and in some cases, the set up time for a job can take several hours. One of the big advantages of flexographic presses is that once a job is set up on the press, it can be run very quickly relative to the speed of running a job on a digital press.
Materials and Capabilities
Flexographic printing accommodates a diverse range of label products and materials. For example, we offer coupon label printing, removable and multi-layer labels. To achieve the best color results on your label, we use the standard four color process of CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and ‘key’ black) inks. Our presses are capable of eight additional ink stations that can be used for multiple variations of any single color with spot colors, specialized inks, white underprinting and finishes.
Cold foil stamping, silk-screening and embossing are also available with flexographic printing. The technical capabilities of our flexographic presses are easily modified to meet the needs of many different label projects and achieve optimal print results.
