Flexographic printing at the Colognia press printing house

Flexographic printing uses the technique of "letterpress printing", the oldest printing technique ever. Our state-of-the-art Gallus Labelmaster 440 Advanced and GALLUS RCS 330 machines allow us to print long runs across the entire product portfolio – from self-adhesive labels to laminate tubes, from flexible packaging through to shrink sleeve labels.

Available machinery

Long runs with demanding finishing processes – challenges for which this machine is best suited
Speed, quality, and efficiency without compromise

Our flexographic printing

Flexographic printing is the most utilised technology at Colognia. We currently offer printing with up to 10 units. They can be used for inks and/or finishing, all in a single pass through the machine. For finishing, you can use screen printing, hot embossing, cold embossing, or even final treatment by varnishing or lamination.

Our maximum input material width is 440 mm. This allows us to produce multiple productions (motifs) side by side and thus save material, time, and your money. We can print on adhesives, undersides and silicone.

We flexo print almost all the products in our portfolio – all self-adhesive labels, laminate tubes, flexible packaging, and shrink sleeves.

Benefits of our flexographic printing

  • Printing on wide range of packaging materials
  • A maximum input material width of 440 mm

Our own CTP studio

We also have our own in-house CTP studio, where we produce Asahi Kasei's AWP flexo plates – one of the best available on the market today.

Quality control

We place emphasis on the quality of our services, especially the quality of printing. That is why we have installed 100% HD cameras directly onto machines, so as to monitor every millimetre of the job and compare it with the approved original. Nothing will slip past that does not belong on your product.

Print run launches

We understand that you want to inspect the quality for yourself. Therefore we are happy to invite you right into our production facility, so you can be there when your print job is launched.

General description of flexographic printing technology

Flexographic printing is the technique of so-called "letterpress printing", the oldest printing technique ever, used for printing on a wide range of materials. Inks are applied to the printed material using printing plates and then dried depending on the chosen type of ink – UV inks are dried by UV lamps, water-based inks by special dryers. 

A specific feature of flexographic printing is the need for a custom printing plate for each colour used. This is one of the reasons why it is generally designed for longer jobs, where the input costs of the printing plates are more spread out.
