Flexographic labels are a highly versatile label solution that can be applied on nearly all packages. They can be printed on a wide variety of materials, including metal films, plastics and papers.
Common applications for flexographic labels
You can find flexographic labels on just about any type of product. They’re widely used for a variety of consumer package goods because they’re economical with large runs, they can be printed on non-porous materials, and they’re great for printing large areas of a solid color. Their versatility makes them a good option for tags, flexible packaging and pouches.
Are flexographic labels right for you?
Flexographic labels provide rapid speed at reasonable cost with design flexibility. If you need large quantities of labels ASAP, flexographic presses can achieve quick line speeds because the labels are fed in using rolls. Particularly for large orders on short lead times, they’re a great value. Since flexographic printing allows in-line combination printing with other processes, such as embossing, we can integrate a high degree of design flexibility. If you want a no-label look, a tactile feel or simply an eye-catching appearance, flexographic labels make it possible.
