We have featured the use of Lenticular Print here on InkOnDaPaper before. Very often it is used as handouts and postcards, or movie boxes and posters. A way to create a moving or 3 dimensional image through the use of a lenticular screen over very precise printing.
According to Wikipedia Lenticular Print is a technology in which lenticular lenses (a technology that is also used for 3D displays) are used to produce printed 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 flip and animation effects such as winking eyes, and modern 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 and commonly called “flicker pictures” or “wiggle pictures,” 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.
One of my favorite lenticular prints was an ad focused towards abused children – to the adult it was a picture of a child, but when down at the childs angle, the message changes completely –
