Flexographic Print

Flexographic Print

• Flexographic Print

Flexographic, or often referred to as flexo, is a process which utilizes a flexible relief plate that can be used for printing on almost any type of substrate. The process is fast, consistent, and the print quality is high. This widely used technology produces photo-realistic images, with a competitive cost. Commonly used for printing on the non-porous substrates required for various types of food packaging, this process is also well suited for printing large areas of solid color.

Applications: Laminate tubes, pressure sensitive labels, flexible packaging

• Heat Transfer Labels

Heat transfer labeling is great for sharp, bright colors and high-quality photographic images. Metallic, fluorescent, pearlescent, and thermochromatic inks are available in matte and gloss finishes.

Applications: Round containers, non-round containers

• Screen Printing

Screen printing is a technique where a squeegee forces ink through a mesh/metal "screen" stencil creating an image on a substrate.

Applications: Bottles, laminate tubes, extruded tubes, pressure sensitive labels

• Dry Offset Printing

The Dry Offset Printing process provides the most efficient method for high speed, large volume printing of multi-colored line copy, half-tones and full process art on preformed plastic parts. This option is widely used and can be completed at very high speeds.

Applications: Round containers, lids, drink cups, extruded tubes, jars, closures

• Pressure Sensitive Labeling

Pressure sensitive labels are frequently used for smaller run quantities, colored containers, coupons, game pieces or when paper quality printing is needed. We coordinate the artwork, printing, and application of pressure sensitive labels.

Applications: Round containers, non-round containers, lids, drink cups

• In-Mold Labeling

In-Mold Label printing works well with four-color process images for colored and clear containers and lids. Up to two spot colors may also be used, and metallic inks are available. The finished label is placed into the mold cavity and is permanently adhered to the part when the resin fills the mold. This premium decoration cannot be removed and is highly scratch resistant.

Applications: Round containers, non-round containers, lids, souvenir drink cups

• Shrink Sleeves

Shrink sleeves provide a good option for products that do not allow for printing and also offer a full-length, 360 degree decoration. Shrink sleeves are normally glossy, but they can also be matte or textured. High definition graphics are available in special metallic and thermochromatic inks.

Applications: Round containers, non-round containers

• Hot Stamping

Hot stamping is a dry printing process in which a metallic or color pigment is transferred from a roll of foil to the package by way of heat and pressure. Hot stamped bands, logos or text can be used to give your product a unique, upscale appearance.

Applications: Closures, laminate tubes, overcaps, extruded tubes

• Cold Foil Stamping

Cold foil stamping provides the same finish as hot stamping, but is a more affordable option for laminate tubes. The image is printed onto a substrate with the use of a UV curable cold foil adhesive. Once the UV dryer cures the adhesive, foil is transferred to the sticky image on the substrate.

Applications: Laminate tubes, pressure sensitive labels

• Metalizing

Vacuum metalizing involves heating a coating metal to a boiling point in a vacuum chamber. The condensation deposits the metal onto the substrate’s surface. This final coating provides a shade of color and a protective layer for the metal.

Applications: Overcaps

• Braille Printing

Braille printing is available to meet all of your European Union (EU) Nutraceutical & Pharmaceutical label requirements. Braille labels can be produced to comply with a variety of EU requirements and international standards. Braille is applied to the label via a rotary screen with a specific mesh and special ink.

Applications: Pressure sensitive labels
