Norman Knights are able to offer high quality flexographic and gravure printing on a wide range of our products.
Flexography is a high speed printing process using fast drying inks and can be used on a wide variety of materials. Flexographic printing uses flexible printing plates made of rubber or plastic, with the image to be printed slightly raised on the plate. The plates are rotated on a cylinder which transfers the image on the surface of the material being printed.
Gravure is a type of intaglio printing process which involves the image to be printed being engraved onto a copper cylinder. The cylinders are fitted to a rotary press where the material, being printed, is fed in between the cylinders allowing it to be printed. It can be used on a wide variety of materials including Polypropylene, Polyester and Polyethylene.
