You may have come across our Flexo Label Printing Machines and wondered whether the costs could be justified by the benefits it would bring to your business. Maybe you’re currently printing on Digital Inkjet machines and struggling to compete with prices from companies producing large print runs at a lower cost, or you might have a used flexo label printing machine and be wondering if it’s worth the cost to upgrade.

What Is A Flexo Label Printing Machine?

Flexographic printing works by creating polymer printing plates containing the images and text to be printed in negative, or a mirror image. A new plate needs to be created for each print run, however once it’s made it can be used indefinitely for no extra cost. This makes flexography one of the most cost-effective and versatile printing methods for medium to high volume printing. 
A flexo label printer can be used on a wide variety of surface materials, giving your business the opportunity to expand your market appeal and still keep costs competitive.

What Are The Benefits Of A Flexographic Printer?

The cost-effectiveness of a flexographic printer provides huge benefits to printing companies working with medium or large scale orders. It lowers the cost per unit, allowing you to be highly competitive when it comes to price.

Flexo printing machines also print much faster than digital machines, with modern printers running at speeds of up to 600 ft per minute, getting orders completed quickly and effectively.

There is a much wider choice of inks and colour options than with digital printing, including water-based, oil-based and solvent based inks, which are often cheaper to purchase than their digital equivalents. Again adding to the cost-effectiveness achieved by these machines.

The reliability and high print quality of flexographic printing presses offer a wide range of benefits to printing companies including the improved efficiency of the printing process, less downtime and a higher quality end product.
