Our Flexographic Process:
LJS can design the artwork and produce the photopolymer plates for your next flexography project. We can make plates to a varying degree of thickness ranging from .067 mils to .250 mils.
As part of our process, we use a Nexus Rip that allow extensive control over dot gain compensation, screening and also offers superior trapping. This means you get the highest possible quality artwork, lettering, and barcodes for your plates.
Our state of the art setup has the capabilities to handle all file formats, including PDF, EPS, AI, PSD among many others. In other words, next time you have a flexography project, look no further than LJS! Our expert team and high end setup guarantees you the best quality flexographic plates for your money.
What is Flexography?
Flexography (or “flexo”) is a method of printing on many different types of substrate, (plastic, metallic films, cellophane, paper, etc). Specifically, it is widely used for printing on the non-porous substrates required for various types of food packaging (it is also well suited for printing large areas of solid color).
Simply put, it is a modern take on letterpress printing. Rather than setting every element by hand using metal or wood blocks, we are able to design the entire layout digitally and print it to a negative. The negative is then “burned” into one of the photopolymer plates essentially creating a stamp which is used to print your design. The flexo plate is then processed, dried, cleaned up, and shipped out to you.
LJS can also create and manage the film for your flexo projects.
