Flexographic Label Printing

Flexographic Label Printing

One of the most popular printing methods at Label-Aid is flexographic printing. This process, also known as flexo label printing, is notable for using soft flexible plates to transfer ink onto a substrate. In the flexographic printing process, the plates contain a raised, inked image, which is then transferred onto the material. Each station of a flexographic printing press produces a single color, with multiple colors registering properly. After colors have been added, you can further customize your label with die cutting, sheeting, embossing, and perforating.

Flexographic printing is also called rotary relief printing because the image to be printed from the flexible printing plate is raised above the floor of the plate. By contrast, other printing processes have the image recessed (gravure) or level (offset litho) from the floor.
