The Sonoco Institute

The Sonoco Institute was created to exploit the synergies that exist between the graphic communications and packaging science departments. It is the only university program in the country with this one-of-a-kind multidisciplinary approach to packaging as a core competency.

Advanced Techniques in Flexography

Workshop Overview

This class is geared towards individuals wishing to expand their present knowledge of the flexographic process. Emphasis is placed on optimizing the printing of tone work and process color reproductions. The class “fingerprints” our press, measures process variance, creates production standards, and then completes a four color process job. During each step formal instruction couples hands on learning in such areas as tonal value management, color proofing, color theory, print analysis, process control, anilox selection, and more.
