Our capabilities cover the entire flexo and offset (spot coating) industries, be it a pressure sensitive label or a direct print corrugated box. Unlike other types of printing, flexography requires utmost attention to detail to ensure results required by discerning clients.
Narrow Web Labels
In the extremely competitive narrow web division, you need a repro house that can supply quality and speed in leaps and bounds. Our highly trained DTP team have the speed and passion to make sure your label is done quickly and efficiently but without any detriment to quality. Every label job is processed using our Esko high resolution imaging which means sharper images with finer highlight dots and less dot gain. With the introduction of computer to plate (CTP) we can produce plates much faster and more cost effective due to the fact no film is required. Combine this with our Esko HD Screening and you will have a label like no other. Ask us how we can take your label business to the next level.

Colour Management & Proofing
Colour managements is an essential part of the pre-press flexographic printing process because it ensures the target colours your client specifies are precisely what your printing press will reproduce.
Stallion Repro provides a breadth of flexo colour management services, experience and technology to ensure premium results when translating design into print.
Our team can also work alongside printers to ensure they achieve the expected colour and print results defined in the original artwork specifications. This is done through our fingerprint on press so we can determine the press curve and ensure our proofs and plates are made accordingly.
The more complex the printing job, the more important it is to check the end results early in the process so that corrections can be made without a lot of cost and effort. Our clients also benefit from specific proofing solutions, including:
• Proofs on actual final printed material for precise assessments such as paper, plastic, foil, aluminium or totally new materials.
• Proofs with simulated screening, traps and overprints to get a better feel for the final product.
• Colour correct digital chromalins on approved colour specific paper.
