How do I set up my files for Lenticular orders?

Updated 4 months ago by eunice.bautista@4over4.com

All lenticular files must be created at 300dpi and require a 1/8" bleed on all 4 sides. So as an example, if you have a 2" x 3.5"  3D lenticular business card, the file must be set up as 2.25" x 3.75".

Here are also some key bullet points that when followed, will ensure the best possible lenticular results.

Lenticular Bullet Points:

  • Dark solid colored and/or textured backgrounds work well with this effect.
  • Avoid white backgrounds when possible.
  • White and light colored areas are transparent, other views/flips will show through white areas causing a ghosting effect. White and light colored areas only work well if each view has white/light colors in the exact same area.
  • Use bold sans serif fonts and avoid small text. Small, fine and thin type do not work well for 3D Lenticular prints; fonts get distorted through the lens/plastic surface, so the bolder the better.
  • Text that varies from view to view/file to file should NOT overlap, but instead be in a different position on each view.
