Flexographic printing, or flexography, is a type of printing process that uses a flexible relief plate. This kind of printing is typically used for non-porous materials like food service paper, plastic, foil, brown paper, and packaging materials. Flexographic printing is unique because it adapts well to different materials and can use a wider range of inks, like water based rather than oil based inks. Since this type of printing holds up and is quite adaptable, it is used for flexible plastics, retail bags, wallpaper and beverage cartons. In addition, flexographic printing usually uses low viscosity inks to allow faster drying time (and reducing costs!).
