How It Works:
It’s simple: printed lenses refract a repeating pattern or symbol. In other words, the lenses work like tiny magnifying glasses. Depending on the design, they might cover the entire surface or only specific areas of the substrate. For instance, the product being advertised may be placed at the center of the image and surrounded by a 3D effect to set the scene. The icing on the cake is when the whole thing is backlit.
Acrylic glass is most common – 2, 3, 6, 10 or 15 mm thick. When it comes to dimensions and shapes, the only real limit is the size of the swissQprint machine’s print bed. When printing smallish formats, you can get maximum utilization of the print bed thanks to swissQprint registration pins, which set as many registration points as needed along the width.
