Lenticular offset printing
For a 100LPI foil (LPI stands for lines per inch), the single lens has a width of only 0.254mm. Behind each lens, sections of up to 20 individual images are printed. Highest precision is the prerequisite for a perfect result. Therefore it takes a very long time until the four ink-emitting printing plates are precisely aligned with each other and the lenticular sheet to the ink roller. Until the first lenticular sheet comes out of the machine in a suitable quality, a lot of time has elapsed and many films have already been printed.
Therefore, the lenticular offset printing is a little more expensive in the area of small numbers since the machinery setup costs are divided by the printed sheets. Once the process of setting up has been completed, a serial production with large numbers of sheets is welcome. The more, the less expensive.
But even for smaller orders, we have a solution. Usually once a month, we print a collection sheet. The motifs of many customers are combined for lenticular offset printing so that an economic processing is possible.
