Scanman UK can manufacture labels up to 8 colours on one of our 3 flexographic printing presses.
Flexographic printing is a traditional printing process, using soft flexible relief plates, which are mounted onto cylinders and transfer the image to the material. Flexo printing offers a versatile solution to printing as you can print on a wide range of materials including papers, plastics and foils. Flexo printing offers a very high speed printing process and is ideally suited for medium to large print runs.
Our presses allow us to printon the reverse, on the adhesive and in either full UV or in waterbased ink and varnishes. The finished labels can be supplied in either rolls, sheets or fanfold packs.
We take tremendous pride in being able to provide creative and lasting solutions for our customers labeling needs.
