The philosophy of the Ultimate Packaging business has always been to work with the very best partners and equipment which is why the business insists on investing in high quality printing machines and supporting technologies.

As the business has grown the Ultimate Packaging team has responded by investing in state-of-the-art Bobst F&K Flexographic Printing Presses.

Flexeye reduced colour printing is a technology developed and launched by Ultimate Packaging in response to customers looking for a cost effective and sustainable solution to packaging print.

The technology uses a reduced colour gamut to produce a wide range of colours and effects using flexographic print onto flexible films. The process uses high definition printing plates to ensure quality and can accurately produce over 98% of Pantone colours.

By working with Flexeye the printing process is streamlined making Flexeye flexographic printing more efficient than standard flexographic printing that typically uses 6-10 colours.

Flexeye technology has been embraced by a number of UK food brands and retailers due to the importance of sustainability within the supply chain. Our next steps will look at building a greater connection with front-end creative processes to ensure reduced colour printing can be optimised from design through to print.
