Owners of flexographic printing companies are hearing about improved efficiencies and higher profit margins through the use of extended gamut printing techniques replacing present CMYK + spot color workflows that currently dominate the US flexographic printing industry. Lee Zerfass, Digital Business Manager for Anderson & Vreeland, has just written a white paper explaining why the timing is right for extended gamut flexo and profit opportunities for printers.
Extended gamut printing has been around over 20 years, but has been limited to offset printing due to historic limitations of the flexo printing process. This is all changing due to better presses, plate-making equipment/practices and color itself.
“New computer-to-plate technologies, innovations in flexo plates and pressroom productivity improvements have made the extended gamut process affordable for small to mid-size converters,” explains Lee Zerfass. “Adoption of extended gamut printing is already having a substantial impact on the flexo market,” Lee added.
The white paper explains key processes that need retooling for extended gamut flexo and the benefits, including extreme efficiencies that are currently being realized by major U.S. flexo converters. Click on the link below to download the Extended Gamut Flexo White Paper.
