Should you use Flexographic or Digital printing for your labels? In the labeling industry, this is a question many production leaders ask themselves, and that’s ok. Ample is here to help you figure out the best printing solutions for your labeling needs. The best factors to consider when printing labels are; quality, substrate, volume, budget, and production schedule. Let’s break each press down and compare the pros and cons to figure out which is best for your business.

Flexography (Flexo) printing utilizes a series of flexible plates, inks, rollers, and rotary die-cutting tools to print mass quantities of labels on a variety of substrates. It’s a process that emphasizes efficiency and long runs during printing. Between the Flexo and Digital presses, Flexo is the most popular for larger businesses.

Digital printing presses, on the other hand, are the latest in printing technology. Digital printing offers you the quality of traditional flexo printing with the convenience of short-run printing. The costs of a digital run are often cheaper than flexo, as there are NO plates involved. The HP Indigo WS6900 is our top-of-the-line digital label printing press. With a premium grade press, we are able to accomplish even better color, clarity, and quality than a flexographic printing press. With Digital printing, we have the ability to print variable data on the same print run, which includes unique names, addresses, barcodes, or product flavorings.

Digital printing is a great option for your business’s introductory phase, which allows fast turnarounds, and is especially well-suited to producing shorter runs.
