HD Flexo

HD Flexo sets the new flexo printing standard for fine highlights, transition to zero, sharp text and brilliant image details.

A new standard for flexographic printing plates

HD Flexo is the next step in high quality flexo printing.

HD Flexo is a new process for making digital flexographic (flexo) plates. The improved plates are higher quality and print more consistently than standard digital flexo plates. HD Flexo may be implemented without scrapping existing equipment and working methods.


"The quality of the plate on press is far superior to what we were using before, which was already very good. Highlights are reproduced much better and we have definition in the tones. There is no longer a hard drop-off of the dot."

Stacey Turner, Prepress Manager, Artcraft Label Inc.

Flexo printing can now compete with offset for quality labels and with gravure printing for flexible packaging. And Full HD Flexo goes even further in the quality improvements.
