All great flexographic printing begins in the prepress department, where evolution never stops.
Automated prepress workflow systems continue to advance with every new version of software. Whether we are evolving from fingerprinting into utilizing SCTV, or not, traditional optimization and characterization still need to be employed. With these systems in place, consistent output and mounting are essential.
Listen to a group of prepress experts describe how these methods are used, and their real-world applications.
