Take Advantage of Effects to Stand out from the Crowd
There are many new and exciting printing techniques launching every month at Greenlife by immij. One of our latest specialities is lenticular printing. Lenticular printing is a great technique to really stand out in a crowded retail nursery. By utilising lenticular printing to create custom plant tags, you can achieve the following effects:
- Growing effect (before/after) to show individual growth phases of the product and several different images can be animated for a label.
- 3D effect can be printed giving the motifs a special depth effect. As though the image maybe moving forwards and backwards.
- Morphing effect creating the illusion of movement, depth or transformation.
- Animated effect characters and features appear as though they’re moving, like a miniature video clip.

What’s more, horticultural companies can even use their tag as a point of differentiation, print barcodes and QR codes on your custom labels allow for an easy point of sale transaction experience by both the retailer and customer.
