Gravure printing

The gravure printing process is primarily used for very high print editions. You will find these in the area of packaging gravure printing (e.g. folding boxes, film packaging) or illustration gravure printing (e.g. newspapers, catalogues).

Flexographic and offset printing

Gravure printing is not always the most sensible and economically viable printing process. As a rule, two further alternatives are available to you. Flexographic printing or offset printing.

Flexographic printing is a high pressure process, which is very highly used today, in the area of films and packaging, but also in newspaper printing.

Offset printing on the other hand, is a so called flat printing process, and transfers the colour indirectly onto the print substrate. The advantages and disadvantages of all 3 processes lead to various possibilities and decisions.
