Lenticular labels are a group of images woven together to show dimensional effects through an extruded lens (Animation, Depth, and Color for examples). Popular lenticular applications: children stickers, business cards, game pieces, and promo labels.
Lenticular – A lenticular lens is an array of magnifying lenses, designed so that when viewed from slightly different angles, different images are magnified.
Lenticule – A single lens
Pitch – The number of lenses or lenses per inch (LPI)
Focal Length – The thickness of the extruded sheet
Viewing Angle – The angle of view of the lens
With flexographic plates capable of high resolution, and availability of lenticular roll stock, flexographic lenticular printing is an attainable option for flexo printers due to flexibility and high speed.
3D effects help the printer stand out from the competition for graphics and promotional work for high end clients.
