Our Technical Capabilities
Flexographic printing is globally recognised as the label industry's leading printing technology. Combining fast press speeds, excellent print quality and efficient plate and colour change regimen, Flexo ensures a flexible, efficient and cost-effective printing process. Each order requires less press time, which reduces costs and lead times for customers while providing outstanding image and colour integrity.
Spot Colour: While CMYK is suitable for reproducing millions of images there are certain colors that cannot be achieved using this process. Spot colour will help you achieve the perfect colour quality required, by using the Pantone Matching System (PMS) to mix specialty ink pigments and achieve an exact colour match. Spot colours can be used in addition to CMYK printer process to help aesthetically enhance your labels and achieve fluoro, metallic and particularly intense colours.
CMYK: CMYK or Four Colour Process technology is the industry standard means of transferring full colour artwork onto a substrate through a printing press. Using combinations of four- Cyan (C), Magenta (M), Yellow (Y) and Black (K) and incorporating half tone dots and solids- printers can achieve photographic quality reproduction and solid colours with maximum efficiency.
Surface coatings and laminates can add a glossier or more matt appearance and aesthetically enhance your label. In cases where moisture or scuffing can threaten the lift or performance of the label, a coating will protect the substrate and printed images. Common finishes include:
- Laminate - Creates an excellent barrier to protect against scuffing or corrosion- available in both Matt and Gloss
- UV Varnish - Creates a gloss effect and protects to a lesser degree.
- Water Based Varnish - Used in specialty overprint applications.
Your labels can be supplied as:
- Rolls of labels wound around cores. A range of core sizes are available to match your printer brand and model
- Fanfold bundles. These are labels stacks with alternating folds, as opposed to being supplied on cores. Fanfold labels can be used where larger quantities are preferred to minimize the frequency of rolls changes.
A4 Sheet format which are cut so that each label or 'label-set' is on an individual sheet, and are often used when the labels are over-printed by a laser printer, rather than a thermal printer.
