3D-100 LPI Lenticular sheet

Specially designed for a more fully developed 3D image, this exclusive lens design allows greater depth effect thanks to the narrow 30° viewing angle. We recommend this lens design exclusively for 3D images and up to A4 size. This lens is also very well suited for applications requiring good readability of small text and fine details.

The best viewing distance for 3D images printed on the 3D-100 LPI lens is within arm’s length. For viewing distances longer than that, we recommend you to use the 62 LPI lens material.

The results of this lens are so impressive that our product has already been copied but, as usual, the original remains better than the copy…

This product is available in the small 52-sheet size (Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 52 UV, KBA Metronic Genius 52 UV, …) so that there is no need for sheet cutting.

3D 20 LPI UV-LF lenticular sheet

Our first EU made product, specially designed with large format 3D photographer’s and printers.
The FIRST large format lens designed and extruded in EUROPE… in stock in Dublin !

Our 3D 20 LPI UV-LF lenticular sheet has been used by many printers all over the World. The lens has a thickness of 3 mm and is designed for the production of 3D lenticular images on digital printers (flatbed printing direct to the lens or lamination). We do not recommend this product for animation effects.

Since we introduced the 40 LPI, we received more and more inquiries for a thicker lenticular lens (20 LPI) from large format printers, also we saw many offset printers adding digital printers to their offset presses. We initiated the development of this new 3D 20 LPI UV-LF lens, as a result of these inquiries.

DPL’s 3D 20 LPI UV-LF is a 3 mm thick lenticular lens of 122 cm x 180 cm (see other sizes on our website) with a viewing angle of 37 degrees, making it very well suited for 3D lenticular applications printed on digital devices.

The material has been extruded with a specially developed UV protection resin to preserve colors when used in outdoor conditions such as bus shelters. The UV protection also allows indoor use as airports, subway, railway stations…
Unique INDOOR + OUTDOOR use !

The 3D 20 LPI UV-LF sheets are packaged in boxes of 10 sheets and palletized with a maximum of 100 sheets (10 Boxes) per pallet. Available from DPLenticular’s warehouse and even from 1 sheet and/or smaller sheet sizes (see our small quantities).

Like our 3D 28 LPI UV-MF, we are controling every sheet to be sure that the product is within our tolerance in terms of deviation. This is a unique service to our customers !

150 LPI Lenticular sheet

With a thickness of only 262 micron, the 150 LPI lenticular sheet is the thinnest lens design we propose in sheets today. The 150 LPI lenticular sheet is perfectly matching the resolution of modern CTP equipment.

This lens design is adapted to the needs of the label and packaging industry, where very thin plastic sheeting is often required (images inserted in DVD boxes…). We could see new applications with this lens like magazine covers…
Because of its high pitch, we recommend this product only for highly experienced printers, as it requires a more exact registration.

The Lenstar®Plus 150 LPI is also available in rolls for the label industry. Lenticular Flexo printing requires special images and plates, don’t hesitate to contact us, we have the solution for your needs.

DPLenticular Ltd. has witnessed very impressive 3D printing effects with this sheet.

Microlux fly’s-eye sheet

MicroLux™ is a visually stunning new fly’s-eye lens array technology. The product is a 381 microns 100% recyclable crystal clear amorphous polyester (APET) or 100% recyclable clear polypropylene (PP) sheet containing an array of spherical lenses, borrowing from natures perfect packing honeycomb design.

This unique design results in a 99.9% fill factor, previously unachievable in any optical lens graphic arts material. You will read interesting information about MicroLux™ on our new site: www.3dflyseye.com

The MicroLux™ sheet allows any plastic printer to print standard graphics and 3D patterns on the reverse side of the sheet, where the lenses magnify the 3D patterns to create outstanding depth, motion, and color shifting effects.

MicroLux™ APET is more stable on press and can also be used to create dramatic 3D “integral” imagery. MicroLux™ integral images are ideal for CR-80 cards, trading and game cards and other hand held applications.

The thickness of 838µ makes it a price affordable lens for many applications, also it allows to roll the sheet after printing !

Our 40LPI can be used with grand format offset and several flatbed inkjet presses, including Canon-Océ Arizona, FujiFilm Acuity, Agfa, Durst, Mimaki, Swiss Q Print, HP, Inca, Zenith, Jetrix ... See our flatbed information page: http://dplenticular.com/products/small-quantities/flatbed-printers/

75 LPI lenticular sheet

The LENSTAR®Plus 75 LPI lenticular sheet is the worldwide standard lens design. It is a universal lens, equally effective at delivering both 3D and animated imaging effects.

Our 75 LPI LENSTAR®Plus sheet is generally used for final image sizes smaller than 30 x 30cm and is particularly effective for high volume projects. It has broad imaging product applications including sales promotions, mouse pads, direct mail, retail products, packaging, and in-store programs.

This product can be printed on almost all the offset printing presses and is available in the small 52-sheet size (Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 52 UV, KBA MePrint Genius 52 UV, …) so that there is no need for sheet cutting.

62 LPI lenticular poster sheet

Designed primarily for larger image sizes, the 62 LPI lenticular sheet also works well for smaller premium-class products, such as ISO credit cards. The lens sheet design is very effective when printed using lithographic offset reproduction equipment. This product is also suitable for high resolution digital printing.

We recommend this sheet for 3D imaging as well as flips and animations. Designers often choose the 62 LPI lenticular sheet for volume POP displays and signage (point-of-purchase applications), where it provides a very high degree of effectiveness.

This product is available in the small 52-sheet size (Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 52 UV, KBA Metronic Genius 52 UV, …) so that there is no need for sheet cutting.

3D 28 LPI UV-MF lenticular sheet

The second large format lens designed and extruded in EUROPE… (after our 3D 20 LPI UV-LF) in stock in Dublin!

Considering that there was a gap between 3D 20 LPI and 40 LPI sheets so we decided to create this new lens design, encouraged by some 3D photographers. The new lens design is a 3D 28 LPI UV-MF.

Like our 3D 20 LPI UV-LF, this new lens has been designed with photographers for photographers !

3D 28 LPI UV-MF lenticular sheet

– 3D as it’s designed for 3 dimensional images with a viewing angle of 37° like our 3D 20 LPI UV-LF.

– 28 LPI as this lens design does not exist anywhere in the World.
– UV as it is produced in PETG-UV like the 3D 20 LPI UV-LF. PETG-UV allows to use the product indoor and outdoor !
– MF for Medium Format as we recommend this lens for smaller image sizes like 1m or 1.2 meter high.
– Thickness is 2.15mm
– Like our 3D 20 LPI UV-LF, the new lens is produced in Europe.

-Like our 3D 20 LPI UV-LF, we are controling every sheet to be sure that the product is within our tolerance in terms of deviation. This is a unique service to our customers !

EcoLens 75LPI

EcoLens™ 75LPI was presented first time during drupa 2012.

The EcoLens™ 75 LPI lenticular sheet is the worldwide standard lens design. As you can see, it is a universal lens, equally effective at delivering both 3D and animated imaging effects. The difference with the Lenstar Plus 75LPI is the resin and the thickness. EcoLens™ 75 LPI is thinner (406µ) thanks to the LentiClear Technology.

50 LPI HD / MOTION lenticular sheet

The LENSTAR®Plus 50 LPI HD/Motion lens provides you with the perfect solution for multiple frame animations. For small image sizes to poster size, this product is a great solution to the printer's requirements.


And if you are wondering whether the 50 LPI-M is also suitable for 3D pictures, we can confirm that we have seen excellent 3D pictures (including portraits) printed on this lens. Don't forget that a wide angle will not "jump" as fast as a narrow angle lens but the angle will allow more parallax.

Small quantities can be ordered from our Dublin base.

This product is available in the small 52-sheet size (Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 52 UV, KBA Metronic Genius 52 UV, …) so that there is no need for sheet cutting.

100 LPI Lenticular sheet

Developed for thinner gauge applications, the 100 LPI lenticular sheet lends itself well to projects such as packaging, direct mail programmes, and laminated products.

Our 100 LPI lenticular sheet has been used successfully to print magazine covers throughout Europe.

As a high pitch lens sheet, the 100 LPI requires more demanding graphic art, prepress, and print management since the tolerances are more stringent and less forgiving. While the thinner material warrants a slightly lower overall cost, we recommend only the most accomplished lenticular image producers use this lens design format.

The quantity of sheets per pallet on the 100lpi, 355µ product has been set to 1500 sheets.

This product is available in the small 52-sheet size (Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 52 UV, KBA Metronic Genius 52 UV, …) so that there is no need for sheet cutting.
