3D Lenticular Magnet Printing

Magnets that have undergone a unique lenticular printing process are known as lenticular magnets. The process of lenticular printing makes use of these tiny, ribbed plastic lenses that are organized in a pattern on a flat surface. These lenses give the magnet a distinct and striking appearance when viewed from various angles, creating the impression of depth or motion.

3D images, flip animations, and morphing are a few effects that may be produced with lenticular printed magnets. A refrigerator or other metal surface can benefit greatly from the excitement and intrigue that this kind of magnet can bring.

There are several uses for our lenticular printed magnets, including:

  • Marketing: Using lenticular magnets to advertise a company or product can be quite effective. They can be distributed at trade exhibitions or other events or addressed to a specific group of people.
  • Promotions: Lenticular magnets are a fantastic method to advertise a special occasion or promotion. They can be distributed at trade exhibitions or other events or addressed to a specific group of people.
  • Personal use: Decorating a refrigerator or other metal surface with lenticular magnets can be interesting and entertaining. They may include pictures or patterns that depict the owner’s interests or personalities.
  • Materials for marketing: Lenticular magnets are a terrific way to stand out from the competition and leave a lasting impression on potential consumers or clients.
  • Lenticular magnets make excellent souvenirs for special occasions or travel. They can be created with pictures or patterns that depict the occasion’s subject or setting, and people can present them as gifts to their friends and family.

What is lenticular printing?

Lenticular printing is a method of producing printed pictures with the appearance of depth, or the capacity to alter or move when the image is seen from various angles, using lenticular lenses (a technique also used in 3D displays).

Flip and animation effects like blinking eyes, as well as contemporary commercial images that alter their message depending on the viewing angle, are examples of lenticular printing.

A transparent plastic lens front layer is combined with a printed backing layer in lenticular print. The print may be done on regular paper and then properly aligned and bonded to the plastic lens material, or it can be done directly on the smooth back face of the transparent plastic (typically using UV inkjet).

What effects are possible with lenticular printing?

Lenticular effects are divided into two categories: animation and 3D. By placing visual components on various spatial planes, 3D lenticular effects give the sense of depth. Computer-generated animation, video, time-lapse photography, and motion picture film may all be used in animation lenticular effects, which play image frames like a motion picture projector. Zoom, flip, and morph are the three categories that make up the animation category.

Zoom Effect

Visual components are pushed forward or leap out towards the view when zoomed in. This effect is excellent for capturing and concentrating customers’ attention on your brand or a highlighted product.

Flip Effect

The flip element toggles the visual components of an image on and off, allowing one picture to transform entirely into another. This is an excellent way to demonstrate a “cause and effect” or “before and after” concept.

Morph Effect

The morph element, rather simply turning a picture on or off like the flip effect, changes one visual element into another. The morph animation effect is an excellent method to demonstrate a backwards comparison, such as comparing an old logo or product to a new one.

Combination of Effects

While any of these components may be utilized alone, you’ll often see them combined in the same project. Flip/3D, Motion/3D, and Motion/Zoom are all common combinations. Lenticular effects may be combined to produce stunning outcomes. However, in order to get a good outcome, rigorous preparation and planning must be carried out.

What is CMYK?

In offset printing, the standard color mode used in CMYK. CMYK, or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black represent the four process colours in this mode. When you are creating your files, be sure to check the color mode as programs like Photoshop by default use RBG color, not CMYK. CMYK may look more dull on a computer screen than RGB; more noticeable in large solid color areas.

Accepted File Formats

We require industry standard formats for all uploaded files. We keep quality in mind when we print every job. We accept the following file formats: TIF – JPG – PDF – EPS – PSD. We accept CorelDraw, Pagemaker & Quark or similar files by converting them to industry standard graphic formats like JPG, TIF or PDF.

Rich Black vs 100% Black

Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 points should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold. For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black.

What Paper to Choose?

Paper should be addressed first in your design work. With postcards, the best option is to choose a thicker cardstock instead of a thinner text weight. The difference between these 2 types of paper is thickness. Our text weight is based on pounds and our card stock is weighted by points. Want to feel the difference? Order a Free Sample Kit today.

What is Font Outlining?

We might not have the same fonts on our systems as your computer, so when saving your files in a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.

Coating Types

We have many coating options at Printing New York. Matte, UV, silk and spot UV. Choose the coating based on your application. For example, if you want to write on your cards with a pen, do not choose UV coating as a pen won’t write on it. In this case a matte or uncoated stock coating would suit. Choose UV coating for flyers or banners and our rich silk gives a touch of elegance; 16pt stock a more durable feeling.
