Flexographic Label Printing

In this high-tech digital era we live in, flexographic label printing can be pushed to the back of the queue. But here at Limpet Labels, we see it as just another piece of the jigsaw.

Alongside our digital presses, we also have our ‘Mark Andy P3 Flexographic Press’ which is one of the most advanced narrow web presses available today and combines the latest production efficiencies with state-of-the-art technology.

Flexographic use printing plates which are made of rubber or plastic. They can print on a wide variety of packaging materials. Flexographic printing plates use inked plates with slightly raised images. They then rotate on a cylinder to transfer the image onto the substrate.

There are many benefits to flexographic label printing, which include exact spot colour matching and excellent solid, punchy colour reproduction.  Due to on-press colour mixing and Pantone-ready colours which ensure your labels look how you want them to look.

The flexographic label printing press is very good at producing long runs, which is why we produce a lot of the labels from our online shop on our flexographic press.  It is due to the incredible speeds that the press can run at while still holding perfect registration – speeds that even the most advanced digital presses cannot get anywhere close to.

Each week we run vast volumes of transport diamonds like:

Road and sea label

This way up label,

Dangerous goods label

LQ label

We keep stock levels high so customers get their warning labels promptly.
