Flexo printing is the common name for the flexographic printing process. In general terms, flexo printing employs a flexographic plate (made of plastic or rubber) with a raised image or text that is attached to a roller commonly known as the Plate Cylinder.

A second roller applies a specific amount of ink to the plate, and this is called the Anilox Roller.

The Anilox roller has small laser engraved holes that are filled with ink; there is a blade that scrapes the excess ink from the roller, leaving the precise amount behind.  

Finally, a third roller keeps the substrate (a material to be printed on) pressed firmly against the flexographic plate while it passes between them, allowing the ink to be transferred from the plate onto the printing substrate.

Each colour of ink to be applied must have its own printing plate and inking assembly.
