Correct Print Sequence order for Flexo Printing

Post by SLflex »

Just curious of or if there is a Correct Print Sequence order for Flexo Printing.
I come from the Commercial offset world and we always put Black down last.
But i have heard in Flexo, it is suggested to put Black down first.

We have a fair amount of process work we have done Black last, so I think changing on existing jobs may have an adverse effect, but would be open to try on new work coming in. Looking to hear what others maybe doing for Print Sequence order.
Thanks Much

In general

Reverse print darkest to lightest

Surface lighted to darkest

But trap needs to be considered and drying
