JERUSALEM -- May 22, 2008 -- Lenticular production for point-of-purchase materials, signage, packaging and more is poised to be a crowd-pleaser at the upcoming drupa 2008 exposition in Dusseldorf. HumanEyes will be showcasing the sophisticated 3D and special effects lenticular capabilities of its lenticular creation and production software throughout the show in conjunction with partners including Fujifilm, HP, KBA, and Océ. DPLenticular Ltd., Pacur’s exclusive LENSTAR lens distributor in Europe, is furnishing a range of LENSTAR lenticular materials to all HumanEyes graphic arts partners during the show for production of the lenticular samples.
“Lenticular will undoubtedly be one of the hottest application areas at drupa this year,” says Duby Hodd, HumanEyes’ CEO. “We are pleased to be in so many partner booths in various halls throughout the exhibition, where show visitors will be able to see lenticular production on flatbed inkjet as well as traditional offset litho, courtesy of our partner Pacur, the manufacturer of LenstarTM.”
Adds Daniel Pierret, managing director of DPLenticular Ltd, “The momentum for lenticular is growing worldwide and we predict that creative, highly graphic samples incorporating a variety of morphs, animation, flips and 3D images printed on Lenstar lenses will be the ‘hit’ take-away of the show.” Pierret says that DPLenticular and Pacur will also be present in the drupa innovation parc Hall 7 / 7.0 C.
Customers credit DPLenticular with substantial contribution to increased popularity of lenticular as a result of the company’s 10+ years of focused technical and commercial support for lenticular. “We’re succeeding in our goal to make lenticular accessible to a wider range of printing companies and printing processes than ever before.”
