Flexographic printing is a printing technology deriving its name from the use of flexible plates. It is a method of direct (as opposed to offset) printing that uses resilient relief image plates of rubber or photopolymer material and fast drying water-based or UV inks. It is frequently used for printing newspapers, self-adhesive labels, flexible packaging, corrugated containers (boxes), and plastic bags.

Sites placed in this category should deal primarily with this printing process. This includes sites of trade associations, companies selling equipment and supplies, and any site providing resources about the process. In contrast, the sites of printing companies that use this process are not listed here; instead, each printing company is listed in a category based on the type of product it produces.
