  • Medium to Long print runs

  • Short lead times
  • Recyclable films available

Flexo uses a light sensitive polymer to make a plate. Film negative is placed over the plate, which is exposed to ultra-violet light. The polymer hardens where light passes through the film and the remaining areas are washed off. Laser engraving can be used as an alternative to the above to the same effect.

The finished plates are taped / mounted onto a print sleeve or cylinder. Similar to Gravure, each plate, will represent a colour used.
