When using "surface method", print is applied to the film and protected with a layer of varnish. Flexographic printing uses flexible printing plates made of rubber or plastic. The inked plates with a slightly raised image are rotated on a cylinder wich transfers the image to the substrate. The image is printed as the substrate is pulled through a series of printing units. Each print unit is printing a single colour. After the substrate has been printed with all the colours the finished product is then slit and rewound according to required specifications (width and length).
Benefits of surface method:
delivery in short terms (usually within 14 days of order confirmation)
small minimum quantity (72 standart rolls 48mm*66m)
reduced cost of printing plates
