In 2005 we added lenticular printing to our repertoire of printing techniques. Lenticular printing adds depth and movement to a plastic type poster. We started out doing art prints. AT40 an Enlightenment by Mike DuBois and Baphomet by Luke Brown are the beautiful results. Since then we have moved on to making posters for specific shows. The Dead, The Allman Bros., Gov’t Mule, Widespread Panic, and Arlo Guthrie are some of our clients that we have worked with in creating spectacular posters that commemorate a special musical event.

Wikipedia defines lenticular printing as so…..

Lenticular printing is a technology in which a lenticular lens is used to produce images with an illusion of depth, or the ability to change or move as the image is viewed from different angles. Examples of lenticular printing include prizes given in Cracker Jack snack boxes that showed flip and animation effects such as winking eyes, and modern airport advertising graphics that change their message depending on the viewing angle. This technology was created in the 1940s but has evolved in recent years to show more motion and increased depth. Originally used mostly in novelty items, lenticular prints are now being used as a marketing tool to show products in motion. Recent advances in large-format presses have allowed for oversized lenses to be used in lithographic lenticular printing.
