Types of print

In the production of packaging, we use 3 printing methods depending on the type of project:
- offset printing
- flexographic printing
- digital print


This is one of the most commonly used varieties of industrial flat printing. It involves the transfer of paint from the matrix to a sheet of paper through an intermediary in the form of a cylinder. This method is time consuming and requires longer preparation and enforces high initial costs. However, it becomes financially advantageous with outlays counted in hundreds of pieces - then the offset guarantees wide printing possibilities and high quality at a low price.
When to choose offset printing:
for larger orders (min. 150-200 pieces of packaging),
when the order is not "URGENT",
when the priority is the wide possibilities of color manipulation and the high quality of rich refinements.


Digital printing is created using an electrophotographic printing machine designed for printing on cardboard. It creates a printout based on a computer database. They can be delivered on a portable pendrive device and receive a printout immediately. The digital printing method is cheap and used at low volumes and different paper weights, however, it has a lower print quality than in the case of offset printing.
When to choose digital printing:
when time counts and the order must be "express"
when you need to quickly print one copy for acceptance,
for personalized printouts (e.g. change of personal data, graphics on each copy).


This is the most economical printing method - it uses liquid quick-drying inks, which are applied using a polymer printing form with protruding elements. It works even on uneven surfaces and allows to obtain a convex effect on the print, which is why flexographic printing is called convex. Flexographic printing technology is developing very quickly, currently guaranteeing high quality implementation: with intense colors and details. Most often we use it to print corrugated packaging, it works great for advertising materials.
When to choose flexographic printing:
when you need to print on different types of surfaces,
for short series that require high print quality,
when the order must be completed relatively quickly.
