Printing Capabilities & Retail Packaging
Direct Print Flexo
Flexographic printing; also known as Direct Print when printing directly on a flat sheet of corrugated board is the most common type of print application used for corrugated products and much of the time the most cost-effective. The print can be as simple as a 1-color black part number on Kraft liner to a 7-color with a UV gloss coating on white-coated liner. Your graphics, choice of liner paper (Kraft, uncoated white, coated white), size and coatings will help determine which of our eight printing presses will print your job. We have 1-color to 8-color printers, ranging from 45 screen line per inch to 151 screen line per inch resolution. Our printers handle packaging as small as 7˝ x 15-13/16˝ to as large as 84˝ x 210˝.
Printing process images, photos and illustrations, directly onto corrugated board can be a daunting task for many. At APC it is an everyday part of our print production. With accomplished press operators, prepress, plate manufacturing and inks, plus over 30-yrs of tried, tested and perfected processes, we have the direct print process down.
