Lenstar Lenticular Print Award

Lenstar Lenticular Print Award supported by drupa 2016

The third edition of the Lenstar Lenticular Print Award (LLPA) is up and running.

The Lenstar Lenticular Print Award (LLPA) supported by drupa 2016 is the first of its kind, and has specifically been created to reward and encourage companies and individuals in the development and use of lenticular printing throughout the marketing and communication mix. This award is an incredible opportunity for the graphic arts community to recognize the growing importance of lenticular imaging as a product differentiator and a mechanism for ensuring that promotional efforts stand out from the crowd. The award is an initiative of DP Lenticular and Lenstar, an organization committed to bringing the latest information on lenticular and new direct-to-lens lenticular printing technologies.
