Flexography – a printing method, which uses flexible rubber or plastic printing forms (clichés) alongside with quickly drying paint. Every printing form is mounted on a rolling cylinder and transfers the paint on the substrate. Using flexography we can print on different types of materials – paper, carton, foil, film (PP, PE, PET, BOPP, etc.) and textile (nylon, polyester, satin, cotton). We are able to print using up to 8 different colors.
The advantages of flexography:
Low costs when printing large quantities;
Speed of printing;
Richness of the colors.
The disadvantages of flexography:
Necessity to produce printing forms;
High costs for starting and running the equipment;
Longer production time.
