Lenticular prints are images that create an animation and/or a three dimensional effect for the viewer.
The effects are created by the topmost layer, a lens of plastic, and a specially treated image that is laminated to the back-side of the lens – or, printed directly to the back of the lens if you have that kind of equipment.
The lenticular images I create are printed on an Epson wide format printer with archival inks and paper to preserve color over time. I use a 25″ cold press laminator, and many of my prints were produced in the kitchen of a tiny apartment I had when living downtown Cincinnati… the cleanest room I had. I’m just saying, it don’t take much… at least now that I’ve done all the math for you.
