We have found over the years that great artwork produces great lenticular. Performance Optigraphics has some of the most well trained and experienced lenticular designers in the country so we encourage you to involve us as early on as possible when producing creative for a lenticular printed piece. We can help to direct you so that your design will end up being the dynamic lenticular item that it should be.
Our preference is to work in Photoshop, high res files (300 dpi or greater) with an 1/8″ bleed around the entire images. If there is a lot of type, we would prefer that in Illustrator and not embedded in the Photoshop file. For animation, (two to thirty frames) we are comfortable placing each movement as a layer in one Photoshop file. On 3D, we need each of the layers of the subject matter separated out making sure that you start with the background and work forward. If you have specific requests for aim points and front and rear projection, please note that in the files.
