What is Flexographic Printing?

Flexography is a well-known method of printing that uses rotary in-line features. Flexographic printing allows printers to print on flexible materials like paper, plastic, cellophane, metallic film, and more.

Flexographic printing, or flexo, became prevalent in the early 1900s. The original use of flexographic printing was almost entirely for food packaging. Today, about 60% of the packaging industry uses flexographic printing.

Advantages of Flexographic Printing

Every printing process has a unique set of features and advantages. Still, flexo printing continues to be a leader in the industry. The main benefits of flexographic printing include:

  • Versatile - allows for many substrates and inks to be used

  • Speed - Flexographic presses offer speeds over 950 feet per minute

  • Automation - Die-cutting, lamination, and sheeting can all be integrated up until the finishing stage.

  • Little Maintenance - this also helps reduce costs!
