Holyoke, Mass. – Hazen Paper Company has shared a futuristic view of holography with its 2019 calendar, entitled “Space – the Infinite Frontier.” Hazen Holography creates the illusion of motion and dimension on two-dimensional printed items by reflecting and refracting light at different angles. Revolving around the design concept of concentric circles, the calendar depicts a view of space from within a space capsule and a rocket launch.
The poster/calendar incorporates several new holographic effects, including Circular Pillars, which resemble a sun-like orb pulsating with prismatic color that appears concave or convex, depending upon the viewer’s perspective. It also features Holographic Radial Burst, a ray of light beams that alternates from monochrome to a rainbow of colors. The oversized 18” x 24” poster/calendar was created to showcase Hazen’s Wide-format Tableau. This capability enables production of materials up to 52” wide without recombine lines, providing designers greater creative freedom. The custom Hazen hologram on 10-point board, coated on both sides, was finished with four-color printing plus opaque white.
Hazen is known for the holographic stadium edition NFL Super Bowl program and the holographic enshrinement yearbook for the Basketball Hall of Fame. It is the most vertically integrated producer of holographic paper and film in the Americas, with a holographic lab and design studio on its Holyoke manufacturing campus.
