A brief history on flexo

Flexography started as a rubber stamp printing method. In 1980, the first patented press using flexographic printing was built in Liverpool, England by Bibby, Baron and Sons. Flexography uses relief printing plates with raised images and fast-drying inks to print. It is a rotary in-line printing method that can use variable repeat lengths and enables printing with a broad range of inks and substrates.

Why flexo is so important

With the advancement in technology, flexographic presses have become the fastest-growing printing process in the world. It is challenging to imagine a day without crossing a flexographic product. Around you, you will find many products, be it grocery or office-supplies, which are packaged with flexographic printing. Business forms, flexible packaging for food and drinking products, labels, envelopes, wallpaper, gift wrapping paper, newspapers, textiles, labels, folding carton, foil are just some of the examples of flexographic printing products.
