Flexography is the method of printing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printing) most commonly used for packaging (labels, tape, bags, boxes, banners, etc.). A flexographic print is made by creating a positive image on a rubber plate. Then a measured amount of ink (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ink
) is deposited upon the surface of the printing plate (or printing cylinder) using an engraved anilox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anilox
) roll whose texture holds a specific amount of ink. The print surface then rotates, contacting the print material, which transfers the ink.
