10 Tips To Achieve a Great Lenticular Image
You can take specific steps to make your lenticular the best it can be. Use these tips we’ve learned along the way to get started.
Every project that comes our way is a little different and has its own unique features and challenges.
It will always be best to talk with us about what you would like your image to do, and even better, show us a rough draft or even a sketch. That said, you can take steps to make your lenticular the best it can be. So without further ado, here is the list!
The more frames that appear in your image, the less distinctly the frames will be separated from each other. A seven-frame image will have more ghosting between frames than a two-frame image. Sometimes ghosting can work to your advantage; an animation of water flowing should not “click” through the frames. It will look more natural if it smears. But more often, bleed hurts. Try to use the least amount of frames and still tell the story. You can read more about how many frames to use here and you can read more about “ghosting” and how to design for it here.
Keep in mind that what matters is how your customer will react when they see the entire image. It’s easy to get bogged down in whether the font is perfect or whether the 4-frame animation works better than the 5-frame animation. But, in the end, your customer will see your message animating or standing out in 3D and say, “Wow, cool!”. That’s the point of producing a lenticular: creating excitement and conveying a message.
