Flexographic and digital printing both have advantages and disadvantages when it comes to label printing. We’ve discussed the pros of digital printing in a previous post, today we’re going to discuss the pros of flexographic printing.




Generally, flexographic printing is the best option when you have a longer run of labels, especially one you expect to repeat in the future. In this type of printing, ink is applied to a relief plate and the plate is applied to the label materials. Flexographic printing is better in this situation because the press runs at a higher speed, and all finishing is typically done on a single press. This is more economical as there will be less set up time. In addition to having the ability to print on many different materials, flexo presses can print spot color matches which is important to many companies with designated brand colors.
