Flexographic printing utilizes a roll of substrate that is fed through a series of rollers to a flexible plate that prints with a raised area for ink. There is one plate for each color of ink. The ink dries quickly and this allows the press to run at high speed.
The high speed, low cost, and overall flexibility of flexographic printing lends itself well to large print runs for labels and packaging. Unfortunately in the past the flexible plates could not hold resolution fine enough to facilitate the use of lenticular print and issues with registration made lenticular printing extremely difficult.
Software and techniques developed by lenticular prepress specialists, Pixalen Studio, have lead to new methods for dealing with the complex registration and interlacing issues that flexographic lenticular has grappled with in the past.
New developments of flexographic plate technology have made lenticular flexographic printing a reality. The latest generation of flexographic plates can hold extremely fine detail.
