How Much Does Lenticular Printing Cost?

Lenticular printing is the use of stylized lenses to give an image the illusion of depth and dimensionality. A common example you may remember are the pictures on Cracker Jack boxes, where the image changes based on the angle from which you’re viewing.

If lenticular printing sounds complicated, it’s because it certainly can be—with the cost reflective of the time, work and skill it takes to create a quality lenticular print. However, don’t let that deter you from this unique solution. When executed correctly, lenticular prints are stunning and capture the imagination like no static image can. Here are the factors in lenticular printing costs.

Quantity

Like with most printing projects, the more you print, the more cost-effective it becomes. Bulk printing is always going to be the main way a printer recommends to trim costs. Wait until you are hosting an event, investing in a booth at a tradeshow, etc. to maximize your print run.

Effects

Special effects are not usually associated with print collateral, but lenticular printing is unique in that you can customize the characteristics that adorn your print. These include but are not limited to:

  • 3D lenticular
  • Flip lenticular
  • Motion lenticular
  • Animated loop lenticular
