Core Tip：Even before the beginning of the photographic techniques, scientists tried some interactions with images and lenses to produce 3 dimensional images.
Even before the beginning of the photographic techniques, scientists tried some interactions with images and lenses to produce 3 dimensional images. Some was successfull, some not. In the late 20s, Herbert Ives simplifies the concept and used a lens array to produce the effect. The basic lenticular lens was invented.
That was a first step, but there was the problem to print on it. Eastman Kodak in the 50s was using a film recorder to get the image on special lenticular lens coated more or less like a 35mm film
In the 60s, large corporations recognized its advertising potential. Mass production became a reality on February 25, 1964, when a Look Magazine issue featured the “first ink-printed postcard sized parallax panoramagram”. A black and white still life.
Since then, lens manufacturers produced more types of lens, different plastic types and resolutions.
Great advance in offset printing inks makes it possible to print on plastic with great color and registration.
So now, Lenticular Mobi is proud to annonce the alteraction lenticular printing. A procedure to make offset printed lenticular in super high quality.
