Flexo Best Practices Improve Your Bottom Line

AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, is hosting Best Practices for Flexographic Printing: Raising the Standard, Wednesday, May 22 - Thursday, May 23 at the PrintCon Center at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C. This course takes the challenges out of high-quality flexographic printing on corrugated substrates and combines classroom training with time on press.

Over two days, participants will focus on producing clean solids and line work as well as halftones and spot colors. The seminar will address many typical troubleshooting issues, including dot gain, die-cutting and proper graphic design for corrugated. Participants can take these processes back to their home plants by creating Standard Operation Procedures. One Point Lessons and checklists will codify the best practices and help participants learn the concepts more deeply, gain experience building standard works and return to their plants with tangible plans to put what they learned into action.

“I really enjoyed the hands-on work time on the machine. The information was broken down and explained clearly with assistance in developing our own operating procedures,” said Matthew Van Fossen, production manager, Jet Container.

Kern Cox, a lecturer at Clemson University and Dr. Scott Ellis, Ed.D, principal, Working Well LLC, will teach Best Practices for Flexographic Printing. Both instructors bring years of experience in all major printing processes and process improvement for sustained profitability.
