lens structure

Thanks to the lens structure, you can see two alternating images.


Ad specials … Stickers … Book covers … CD cases … DVD cases … Invitations … Folding boxes … Give-aways … Greetings cards … Vouchers … Bookmarks … Magnets … Mailshots … Mousepads … Posters … Postcards … Shelf danglers … Collector’s cards … Cheque cards … Games … Counter cards … Business cards … and much, much more …

Flip images.

Flip images – or “wiggle” images – are the classic lenticular effect ...

Special software is used to cut two images into strips, line them up next to one another in an alternating pattern, and then convert them back to their original size. They are then printed onto lenticular film from the rear so that users see a different individual image depending on their perspective and the angle it is tilted at. This really catches the eye in mailshots, on shelf danglers and in ads ...


In addition to the classic dual-flip image, there is also a multi-flip option. More images for more information ...

In this example, we have used our special software to cut four images into strips, line them up next to one another in an alternating pattern, and then convert them back to their original size. This effect is perfect for illustrating processes and techniques to be distributed via magazine ads or mailshots.


If you’re looking for a realistic touch, why not turn your graphic into a 3D image?

This will lend your picture a great sense of depth. In order to achieve this, the image must be structured in different levels. We have used five levels in our example. Changing your angle of view changes the perspective. This can turn posters into realistic works of art, for example. You can also add a flip to really grab the attention of passers-by.


This is probably the most exciting and eye-opening lenticular effect – a truly transformative experience.

By providing our special software with two starter images, you can use a morphing effect to generate multiple intermediate images. These are then split, ordered into an alternating pattern, and converted back to their original size. This produces a transformational effect – a real “metamorphosis”.

Add a lenticular graphic to your flyer to illustrate a before/after effect.


Run the film! Lenticular animation is the flip-book of the modern age.

It can be used to print short film sequences, turning them into useful image material. In our example, we have used 19 images. These are processed digitally as described above and turned into a printable animation that almost seems real. Use this lenticular effect to get your pictures moving and astonish your customers! For example, why send out a simple entry ticket when you can turn it into a warm-up event all on its own?

Zoom effects.

This effect is simple yet effective.

Lenticular zoom can make things bigger then smaller – or vice-versa, of course. This dynamic, breathtaking effect will spark your customers’ imaginations, and can be used on media such as greetings cards, magnets or stickers to bring a smile to their faces.
