Flexographic printing is a popular method used for printing labels and flexible packaging materials. It is a versatile and cost-effective printing technique that involves the use of flexible relief plates made from rubber or photopolymer. These plates are mounted on rotating cylinders, which transfer ink to the substrate, creating high-quality prints.

Flexographic printing offers several advantages for labels and flexible packaging. It can handle a wide range of materials, including paper, film, foil, and various types of plastics. This makes it ideal for printing on materials used for packaging items such as food, beverages, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. The process is capable of producing vibrant colors, intricate designs, and fine details, making it suitable for creating eye-catching labels and attractive packaging.
