Rotogravure printing for custom packaging design
Rotogravure printing is a popular choice for flexible packaging because it allows for custom bag design, including the format, material structure, shape, features, and artwork. While it may have a higher initial cost, it is the preferred method for custom printed packaging in the coffee and food industry.
How does rotogravure printing work?
One of the main reasons for the high startup cost of rotogravure printing is the printing cylinders, also known as print drums. In rotogravure printing, the graphics are engraved directly into the print drum, which then transfers the graphics onto the printed material.
The process of creating the print drums can take up to a week, and each print drum can hold only one color. We can use both CMYK and pantone colors in the print.
To ensure that no ink is left on the unprinted areas, we use a doctor blade that removes excess ink. Therefore, it is crucial that the depth of the patterns carved into the cylinders is precise.
