Flexo Printing is the most common method of printing on corrugated and is executed on the same machine and at the same time ‘in line’ as it converts the corrugated board in to a box. Flexography is a process whereby flexible rubber or polymer plates are used to transfer an image onto corrugated much like a mechanized rubber stamp. Fast-drying, water-based inks are generally used, which allow for fast running speeds. The print quality is dependent on many variables, and is influenced by the absorbency of the material being printed. By nature, corrugated material is highly absorbent and thus flexo printing is not recommended for high definition graphics. For straight text or 1-2 colour graphical images, this method is ideal. Flexographic printing is very economical and is utilized in large or small production runs.
