Flexographic print technology is a relief printing method that’s been used since the 1800s. It involves flexible printing plates mounted on rotating cylinders.

Great color matching and high image resolution can be achieved with this method which is why it’s often used for branded materials and packaging.

Since the transfer plates are molded to print a single image and can be reused almost infinitely we recommend this method for high volume and recurring print jobs. This is also a great method for high-volume jobs due to its impressive throughput speeds and cost-efficiency.
