Flexographic printing is known for providing quality results with its efficiency speed. This type of printing is continuing to grow, despite widespread digitization by many of the printing sectors. Those in the label printing business, like us, understand the importance of knowing how this type of printing machine operates.
A few advantages of flexographic printing to start as I mentioned above the speediness of the production process, which can help reduce labor cost, which in turn reduces overall cost of the labels for the client. Flexography also accommodates a variety of ink types from water based through solvent & U.V curable inks. This helps make it the most versatile process for any printing application. To determine the type of ink used is depending on the material to be printed on, is it porous or non-porous, so there really is no limit to the substrate you can use.
Flexographic printing is an excellent choice when it comes to volume production and fast turnaround requirements. Once the new job is set up, the process is fast since they are automated up to the finishing stage, such as laminating, over varnishing, sheeting, and die cutting. Most other types of printing do all these steps separately. Flexographic printing equipment can be environmentally friendly, as well as below in operational cost. Ink costs and material costs are relatively low, with no special coatings required.
