Flexographic Printing

Flexographic Printing Services

An offshoot of letterpress, flexography uses the same raised image area, which is inked by an anilox roller. This roller is pressed directly against the envelope die cut to produce the image.

Unlike heavy paste inks used on a traditional letterpress, flexo ink is very watery. Consequently, the inks system consists of only two rollers rather than the multiple form rollers used with heavy inks. Photopolymer plates (cyrels) are used for flexo printing.

Whether water or alcohol based (we use water based for environmental reasons), flexo inks enable high–speed print runs that dry instantly. This process is used when we print during the manufacturing process, enabling us to go from a raw roll of paper to a printed finished envelope in the box and ready for sale.
