What’s So Hard About Printing on Corrugated?
Roll-to-roll, roll-to-sheet and yes even sheet-to-sheet—that’s flexography at its finest. Printing directly on corrugated board can be, at times, subtle and, at other times, not so subtle. But what is it that makes printing on corrugated board so difficult? Unlike printing roll-to-roll or roll-to-sheet, there are many factors that contribute to these challenges—including print surface, large sizes, substrate, inks and plates.
Join Geoff as he discusses these factors and describes the flexographic printing process for printing on corrugated board. He’ll touch on the distinction between print partners and vendors, and how to utilize FIRST (Flexographic Image Reproduction Specifications & Tolerances) to become a true print champion. Bring your questions and get your answers so you can Plan it, Do it, Check it and Act on it.
