Flexography

Definition - What does Flexography mean?

Flexography is a specific type of printing process done with a particular kind of relief plate. It is sometimes referred to as a “rotary” print method, or a modern type of letterpress print method. Flexography is one modern choice for the mass manufacturing of printed materials.

Flexography is also known as flexographic printing.

Techopedia explains Flexography

With flexography, project managers put a film negative over a plate and expose it to UV light. A computer-guided tool etches an image onto the plate, and then the plate is molded. For printing, ink is transferred to the plate and excess ink is eliminated. A quick drying process allows for clear results.

Flexography is often used with many different kinds of substrates to produce things such as printed paper, food and beverage labels, and other types of products.
