Plastic cards with 3D flip images

The lenticular effect of 3D flip images is perfectly suitable to establish an extraordinary advertising medium - made out of plastic cards. We add a moving picture to your plastic card!

They are small, handy, easy to transport and they can still display several pictures and messages, which become visible by changing the angle of vision. In this way you can bring “moving pictures on a plastic card”.

With lenticular cards you can communicate various advertising messages to your customers. Texts, slogans, pictures, product presentations - with different sequences a small film is created on the card. The lenticular effect turns your card into an exciting medium that changes its appearance depending on the point of view and creates surprises.


Lenticular plastic cards are well suited, for example, for competitions: Among all the plastic cards produced with 3D flip images, a few contain, for example, the main prize, which is represented visually and which has to be found. As customer or gift cards, the flip images create a special and lasting effect.

Lenticular cards can also be technology carriers: On the basis of a patented system, we offer the possibility of using contact chip cards (SLE4442, etc.) on plastic cards with 3D flip images.

How is the lenticular effect created on the card?

Lenticular plastic cards have an uneven surface, containing of tiny elevations made of lens and prisms. Those elevations are printed with different motives concerning your perspective so that the view changes depending on the angle from which the card is viewed or held.


Following lenticular effects are produced:

  • 3D imitation: The most popular 3D effect. A single picture is portrayed with a high degree of depth.
  • Flip: A picture is exchanged by another by tilting the card.
  • Morphing: An object can be converted into another. The animation effect appears especially smooth, if shape and colours of the object are similar.
  • 3D depth: From all possible angels and distances, pictures of an object in its natural surrounding are taken and printed onto the card. Thus, the object seems to stick out of the card.
  • Simulation by computers: For this lenticular effect no photographs are needed. Via vector graphic or 3D program you can use individual designing possibilities.
  • Motion: One picture is exchanged by another while the conversion is conducted smoothly, thus an animation effect is created.
  • Flash: Pictures are stringed together and are shown after each other. The picture is changing constantly, while the card is tilted.
  • Combination: the different effects can also be combined with each other.
