Below are answers to the most frequently asked questions about lenticular printing:
1. What is lenticular printing?
Lenticular printing was invented to create the illusion of animation or depth. This technology was created in the 1940s, but has evolved through the ages. What we know today as lenticular prints, or holograms, were once called "flicker pictures", "winkies" or "wiggle pictures".
Lenticular images are graphic files that go through a process called "interlacing". An interlaced image is made up of repeating slices to create a 3D effect or animation. The images are then printed onto lenses - which is a material that is similar to plastic, but made up of lenticules, hence its name.
2. What final touches may I add?
At the moment, you may add 2, 3 or 4 flips to create the illusion of motion. You may also add ¼" radius or ⅛" radius rounded corners by selecting it on our Instant Price Calculator. You may also make your card even more striking by adding full-color printing on one or both sides.
