Printing Plates

Posted

Printing “plates” are thin sheets of polymer material, laser engraved with an image of your digital artwork. These plates are wrapped around cylinders and installed on a flexographic press where they get coated with ink that then transfers onto the web-fed material; each color being printed requires it’s own plate. We have the ability to produce these plates in-house, a capability that not every label printing company has. This allows us to save you time and money with faster lead times and elimination of the cost of a third-party plate maker.
