Lenticular graphics are made up of two components: a lenticular screen (or lens), and a flat printed image. The lens feels like grooved Plexiglas. The grooves and ridges of the lens are actually lenticules which focus your sight on different parts of the underlying picture. The printed picture is actually made up of multiple pictures which are printed in alternating lines. A narrow band of each image will be printed sequentially with narrow bands of each additional image. If three images will be combined, the composite print will include a narrow band of image #1, followed by a narrow band of image #2, then followed by a narrow band of image #3. That pattern of printing is continued (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) for the entire composite print. Viewed in this state, the image is fuzzy. However, viewed under the lens pattern of the lenticular screen, a different view of the image is received from different angles. This creates the special effect. The lens pattern is described in terms of lines per inch. The composite is printed to match the lens pattern, or "pitch." Optimum viewing distances for large format graphics are three feet to infinity. <br><br> Today's lenticular 3D graphics are a vast improvement over the cheesy novelty items of the 1950's. Holographic and volumetric images are catching on as the way to capture attention while entertaining. Lenticular 3D images do not require any special equipment to view, and are adaptable to many types of installations and uses. <br><br> <big><b><i> If you are viewing this text, you may have linked in from a search engine.
