Flexographic (Flexo) Printing


Everyday printing for corrugated boxes

Flexo print or Flexographic Printing, is one of the more basic forms of printing, most commonly used within the corrugated and box making industry. This is because it allows you to print onto what is a relatively uneven surface, directly.

Flexographic Printing Process

The process involves making a relief polymer-print stereo direct from the artwork, to which the water based biodegradable ink is applied. This is then put onto the chosen material by direct contact pressure. You print one individual colour with each print stereo. 

This extremely cost-effective method of box printing offers superb end user flexibility for all custom printed boxes with logo's and/or text. You may choose to have as little as a product reference or simple instruction printed on, (such as ‘fragile’ or ‘handle with care’ ) or you could choose to print the entire box with your brand colour or colours. More detailed graphics can be achieved by using up to 5 individual colours especially on larger print runs. 

This versatile, simple and adaptable print technology is ideally suited to small, medium and large production run length's when printing corrugated boxes. Flexo also offers great cost savings compared to other printing techniques.
