Flexographic printing doesn’t always have to mean a basic 1 color design. Many design possibilities exist, especially when you utilize the board color of the box in your graphics. The image below is a 2 color print on a white box, which appears as a 3 color design with bright and eye-catching pop!

The trick is usually to ensure there is space between colors to avoid overlap that could create problems during the print process.

In terms of cost, adding a 2nd color is typically very minimal on a per box price, especially since most machines are designed to print up to 3 colors in the same pass. The added cost to consider is typically a one time print plate cost, which is $400-600 on average per color used.
