What is flexography? Sometimes abbreviated as flexo, flexography is a fast, reliable printing process that can be used for most types of packaging and label applications. This printing method uses a flexible relief plate and produces high-quality printing for many various types of mass-produced products. These include self-adhesive labels, plastic bags, cut and stack labels, and food packaging alike.
Flexographic printing is suitable for a variety of materials and can be printed on almost any substrate. Plastic film, paper, corrugated cardboard, metallic surfaces, non-woven fabric, and multilayered film composites can all be printed using flexography, making it a flexible and reliable printing method in the industry. At Printron, we use high resolution HD plates (featuring Optics 80v2, Pixel+), MicroPlating, Digital Quantum plates, Digital FMD plates, liquid mask plates, liquid plates, and plate mounting for our flexographic printing process.
Flexographic printing starts out with the material (in the form of a roll), that passes through several rotary flexible relief plates. A specialized roller provides ink to each flexible plate. There is one dedicated flexible plate for each individual printed color, resulting in highly-detailed coloration. The relief plates work together to produce all the colors for the final product.
Depending on the product, other processes may need to be included in the flexographic printing process. For example, if your product needs laminating, embossing, or die-cutting done, you’ll have to integrate it in to the flexographic printing. This helps to significantly increase production speed, since the printing can be all done at once.
What is the difference between flexography and offset printing? While the two printing processes are similar, there are several key differences:
