About Econoflex

Our innovative Econoflex print technology achieves crisp, fine lines with half-tone designs, comparable to Flexographic printing, on 100% recycled and recyclable corrugated cardboard.

What is a half-tone?

Half-toning is a print technique that breaks up an image into a series of dots with various sizes and spacing to reproduce the full tonal range of artwork without using a gradient. Our Econoflex box designer automatically converts your artwork into a single-color half-tone so you don't have to worry about figuring it out yourself! 100% black elements (like the text in the below photo example) will print solid black while any gray or lower opacity elements (like the dog image in the below photo example) will be converted into half-tone dots.
You’ll immediately see the half-tone result in the 3D preview and you'll have another chance to review and approve your design during proofing.
