Gravure printing: This method is a high quality printing method. The graphic for all colors is added to individual metal cylinder. The advantages are high quality, clarity of reduced size text, and consistency of reproduction over a long period.
CI flexo: This method is also a solvent based process on the raised areas like dot or lines or blocks on a photopolymer plate. The color unit's prints the ink in sequence which is transferred to the plate and then the film.
UV Flexo: IT used the same plates as CI flexo, but here there is no solvent used in the ink. The colors are printed separately onto the film and are cured by use of UV lamps. This method gives greater 3D effect than CI flexo.
