The advantage of the Flexo printing is once the machine is set up to print, the pressman would not have to touch the stock again until the completed labels are taken off of the press. The other advantage of this method of printing is it is very fast. Fast enough that to see what is being printed a low tech strobe light is used. The strobe light is blinking at the same speed of the printed labels thereby freezing a printed label. This was necessary so the pressman could make sure the label is being printing correctly. The ultimate advantage of this type of printing is the low cost of the labels.
Flexography printing is designed for large quantities; because set-ups and make readies are expensive thus roll label printing is not a good solution for 500 labels. The normal minimums for this type of printing would be 1,000 labels. Large quantities for this method of printing would be 100,000-millions.
