Advanced Techniques in Flexography Workshop

Workshop Overview:

This class is geared towards individuals wishing to expand their present knowledge of the flexographic process. Emphasis is placed on optimizing the printing of tone work and process color reproductions. The class "fingerprints" our press, measures process variance, creates production standards and then completes a four-color process job. During each step formal instruction couples hands-on learning in such areas as tonal value management, color proofing, color theory, print analysis, process control, anilox selection, and more.
