Printing Methods & Capabilities:
Flexo Overprint 2 colours max
Flexographic (flexo) printing is a form of printing that uses a flexible printing plate to transfer the ink onto the substrate being printed. It is used for printing on many different types of substrate including plastic, metallic films, cellophane and paper. The printing capability is lower than lithographic printing, typically achieving only 40DPI on the most basic printers, rising to 120dpi on the most advanced. We use 2 types of flexo printing press, a stack printer and central impression (CI) printing press.
Allows printing onto pre-fabricated items so is perfect for short print runs. It can be 1 or 2 colours in line. A conveyer belt takes the item runs it through the print rollers. The item is then deposited into a tray for packing. The best print results are on flat surfaces so the print area available is limited by the construction of the bag. Also due to the uncontrolled nature of the printing, registration cannot be guaranteed. The maximum tone available is 40DPI and reverse out printing is not recommended.
Flexo CI 6 colours max
Central Impression Press
A type of printing press used in multi-colour flexography in which a single large-diameter common impression cylinder supports the substrate as it contacts a series of adjacent plate cylinders, which lay down successive colours. Central impression presses can have anywhere from two to eight printing units, with six being the most common. The advantage of this configuration is that you can print at a much faster rate than a stack press while maintaining much tighter registration and a higher DPI. Unfortunately they take longer to set up and so are not used on short runs.
