Rotogravure is the absolute highest fidelity print available for flexible packaging. Gravure achieves a crisp and vibrant image superior to other print methods. Gravure is also tremendously consistent; package #1 looks exactly like package #1,000,000. Legend's gravure printed packaging also costs less than flexo printed packaging (both pre-press and per package).
Legend provides full digital pre-press service. Our pre-press systems are tightly calibrated to our presses. We can take virtually any art file and prep it into “press-ready”. An essential part of the “art-prep process”, Legend offers the latest in proofing technologies to illustrate in advance how your printed package will look.
Legend utilizes 8 and 10 color flexography when circumstances demand faster lead times for packaging produced domestically. We also utilize the latest in narrow wide flexography for our pressure sensitive labels using the newest in super-high screen count digital polymer printing plates.
The majority of Legend's laminations are bonded via a solventless adhesive. This system achieves excellent film bonds, while also offering the advantage of being oderless.
Extrusion laminations utilize polyethylene to bond 2 or more films together. Typically the preferred methods for laminating multi-ply foil structures.
