Flexo

We use flexography to print and finish a wide range of sheet materials, we. In recent years, flexographic printing has evolved in spectacular fashion. Speed, low initial costs and great flexibility together with the highest quality standards make us into a full-fledged competitor.

We put all our expertise to your service, in order to move your printing orders through this workflow, advising you on colour spacing and shrinkage ratios. As the basic materials are perfectly transparent, you can play with colour or even leave some parts of the foil transparent, so that the colour(s) of the product packaging reinforce your message.

Some types f packaging actually beg for a shrink sleeve label. You can use up to 8 colours, not counting the colour of the packaging itself, to create a stunning result. In consultation with our technical and sales staff, we can even add more colours for applications that require them.

  • Low initial costs
  • Powerful, brilliant colours
