Intro to Flexo Online

Now online, the popular Intro to Flexo Workshop, taught by flexographic experts at Clemson University’s Sonoco Institute of Packaging Design and Graphics, is geared toward individuals in need of fundamental knowledge of the flexographic printing process. This online course combines visual instruction coupled with interactive modules utilizing the Sonoco Institute’s STRIPE Online platform—a real-to-life simulation of the institute’s own pressroom and narrow web flexographic press.

The course is broken into 11 modules:

      Overview of Major Printing Processes
      Image Reproduction
      Ink and Ink Delivery
      Flexographic Platemaking
      Press Component Identification
      Density and Tone Value
      Evaluating a Banded Anilox Test
      Measuring Color
      Prepress for Flexography
      Process Control and Troubleshooting
      Current Trends in Flexography

Engage with STRIPE Online, a browser-based, flexographic press simulation allowing users to adjust keypress variables in real-time. Pricing is $895/person (limited time $100-off).

You will have 30 days to complete this course. Questions? Contact Bobby Congdon at [email protected].
