The printing process we use to produce some amazing products for our customers.
We produce our products using various printing process.
Due to this, we have a huge amount of versatility to print on to a large number of different materials in both size and weight.

With a variety of techniques at our disposal, together we can create stunning professional solutions that effectively promote your product or business.
Striking Alternative Materials
Using materials that are more striking and durable than traditional paper alternatives, this opens up all kinds of possibilities.
We guarantee high-quality production, whether digital, lithographic or screen printed.
Our in-house production and finishing facilities based at our industry-leading UK premises ensures complete customer satisfaction.
Digital printing process has certainly become a very important side to our business.
Reflex started our digital journey in 2010 purchasing our first flatbed digital UV press.
As a result of continued growth, purchased two more presses.
Printing using UV digital technology offers us the opportunity to print on to almost any substrate.
Reflex has the ability to print up to 3.2m x 1.6m and anything up to 50mm thick.
Our flatbed digital press prints with 6 colours which give us even more definition in our print quality.
Our digital presses are the perfect choice for multiple designs, language changes and personalisation.
Consequently, this creates minimal waste which therefore equals a lower cost.
Another positive for our customers is that our digital press has white ink channels.
This gives us the ability to print in white onto clear or coloured materials.
Since those early days, digital machines have become quicker and the quality has continued to move forward.
As a result, we invested again due to the increased interest and demand from our clients.
In early 2017 we were asked to join an exciting project to become the beta test site for a new digital press.
The Acuity B1 is at the forefront of digital printing. It prints using 7 picolitre heads.
This resolution gives amazing quality and speed and above all can run up to 200 B1 sheets an hour.
This quality and speed give us a huge advantage in this ever-growing market.
Giving our customers the confidence and quick turn around time needed for today’s busy markets.
The lithography printing process is suitable for medium to long runs.
As the quantity rises so the unit cost goes down, producing a high-quality image at optimum speed.
Reflex’s customised Komori press can print up to six colours in one pass onto plastics or other synthetic materials.
Our press features a fully inter-decked UV curing system between units for whites.
This allows us to run 4 colour jobs plus white in just one pass.
The Komori can run up to six spot colours where detailed accuracy is crucial.
Anti-marking rollers make it possible to print materials that other printers would find impossible.
A Cyrel plate facility offers a registered varnish to follow a specified design if needed.
Quality is a priority and key to that is controlling colour weight and balance.
Acuracy and Standards
We work to Fogra 39 colour standard.
Using our Press Sign software ensures plate curves are calibrated to optimum levels specific to each material type.
The Press-Sign system has many benefits, not least minimising print dot gain.
If left unchecked would diminish the definition of final product appearance.
Accuracy is our objective and to achieve that we regularly calibrate all our equipment.
This essential for our work in plastics, particularly lenticular.
The screen printing process is a shrinking art form, largely due to the digital explosion.
However, there remain some areas in which screen is the best option.
Specialist Inks and Finishes
Aside from the usual colour printing we offer, special finishes can be added to our litho printed sheets.
Unique to screen process effects include chrome, glitter, reflective, fluorescents, gold, plus a range of specialist varnishes.
Our machines have multi-option curing systems including UV, IR, warm air, air extraction and oxidising racking.
Printing on coloured materials, the deposit and opacity of ink give a superior finish to other printing methods.
Screen Printing Uses
Prints can also be turned into stickers by screen printing adhesive to one side and applying a release liner.
For double-sided stickers, we print with a white, silver, white layer to stop the under surface image showing through.
