Artwork considerations

'Flip' (Changing image), Motion, Zoom, Morph Lenticulars

In order to design an effective lenticular, it is important to plan how the image will be viewed: Will the viewer hold the lenticular and tilt the image up and down, or will the user be expected to walk past it to see it changing?

  • In order to have maximum visual impact, 'Flip' lenticulars should ideally be designed with two compatible images: similar pictures and similar backgrounds, with the flip occurring in approximately the same place on each image.
  • The more alike the backgrounds and images are, then the less "ghosting" will occur. For best results, a 2-phase flip is recommended - meaning switching between just two separate images.
  • While a 3 or more phase flip is possible if the images are almost identical, it is not normally recommended due to the possibility of ghosting between images.
  • For 'Flip' lenticulars, we require two different photographs or two separate images. They may be from original art or photographs, or DVD or 35 mm slides, or high resolution scanned images. But they must be supplied to us within a Photoshop layered file.
  • For 'Motion', 'Zooms', 'Morphs', we will accept up to 50 frames, but 12 frames should be ample.
  • All text should be at least 12 pt. or higher or else the text may not be readable under the lenticular lens.
  • Because the lens selected for the lenticular directly impacts the quality of the final product, we will use our years of experience to select the "lenticules per inch" that is most appropriate for your job.
  • If the lenticular image is going to be a side to side flip (viewer will rotate the lenticular left and right or walk past the image), it is best NOT to have vertical lines in the artwork.
  • If the image is going to be a 'top to bottom' flip, try to void horizontal lines in the artwork.
3D Lenticulars
  • 3D lenticulars can be created from original 3D photography, or from a 2D image which we can convert into 3D.
  • The original 2D image can be an original photograph, a high-resolution scanned image, or a layered image in Photoshop. We will perform a professional high resolution conversion to turn the 2D image into a 3D image.
  • Digital art must be supplied as a Photoshop file. Any layers MUST be supplied 'UNMERGED'.
Sending all files to 3-D Images Ltd.
Apart from visuals, to be sent as JPEGs, please ensure that all files for converting into lenticulars are sent as:
  • Photoshop layered file, CMYK.
  • Each layer within that file to contain a different image.
  • Images to be at final print size and at 300 dpi, and include 3mm bleed.
