    Lenticular Printing

    Paul Cutler Community Member
      I have contacted some vendors about an upcoming project. It's going to be an 18" x 24" collectible poster for an event I'm working on.

      Do any of you have experience with lenticular and if so, any thoughts or tips?

      Or perhaps a suggested vendor?

          From what I gather, it's a very expensive option. The multi-image material is laminated, very nice effects. There is a local vendor here on the east coast, call Hazen Paper at 413/538-8204. They've done some impressive DVD covers and book covers for Disney.

            It's going to cost about $8 apiece for 1000 18" x 24" posters. So yeah, it's expensive. I'll look Hazen Paper up on the web - I have a couple of pretty good vendors here on the west coast that do a lot of work for the movie companies.

            I think the money is going to work out - we're still looking into that - so the design is going to be the big challenge. If I spend that much money it better be spectacular. I believe in myself so off we go

              I assume you mean 3-D art prepared this way. A couple of thoughts...make sure you see actual lenticular samples they've produced, and that they're to your satisfaction. Also, be sure that you have exact instructions for how they want the source images prepared and submitted, and that you see a proof.

                There's several effects you can achieve with lenticular and I am thinking 3D. The samples I received are outstanding or I wouldn't be going down this road.

                We shall see how it develops.

                  Yep, in retrospect I recall also seeing samples of both 3-D and art change varieties.

                    Hazen looks like a paper wholesaler from the website.

                      I have found a vendor who supplied me with some samples that saved this project. It's fiscally taxing so it was off, until I showed the money men these. Outstanding stuff.

                      For future reference it's big3d.com. They are based in Fresno CA.

                          Cool. I just put my file on their FTP site so now it's time for crossed fingers.

                            It's considered bad form to advertise on the forums and may even violate terms of agreement, IIRC.

                                We scaled it down to 6"x9" due to financial considerations. The bosses loved them and the level of dimension that can be achieved now is truly amazing. Really fun.


                                I am currently working on another 3D piece  - I have a little more time with this so I have presented a few options: zoom, flip, 3D, action.

                                      I just found out that PS CS4 has some rudimentary lenticular capabilitles. It can do interlacing for 3D but not flip or animation. That's pretty cool. Seems like it's time to buy some lens…



                                      • 16. Re: Lenticular Printing

                                        Yes, it is quite cool. We bought CS4 for our office and it works really great. It helps with the basic Lenticular printing.

                                                    For printing to a lens over 60 lpi you need to go offset. You would need to get your plates by CTP as the make ready time will be the least. The mechanical pitch would be needed to be found out first or the flips would not be that good and sharp/smooth. You software should guide on that. A UV press is essential and must be in good condition.I have  found the software extremely good. The new version that they showed in Drupa is even better and more user friendly.

                                                          This is a very important issue, as there is no point skimping on the lens type as you will ultimately be disappointed with the results achieved.
