Glossary of Printing Terms:
Anilox Letterpress Printing

A form of printing which uses a very simple ink dispensing system borrowed from gravure printing. An inking roller (“anilox roller”) with small recesses arranged in a grid form is inked to excess and a doctor blade is then used to remove the excess ink. This immediately results in a very uniform film of ink, such that no further rollers are needed in the inking unit for ink distribution. The advantages of this process include the simple design of the inking unit and the ease with which ink feed can be controlled.
