Single or two layered holograms create one or two separate reflective planes showing texts or pictures in characteristic color crossings. It is possible to produce the holographic stickers by an easier technology. With this technology there is no need to produce so called “holographic master“ which is a draft design used for printing more advanced types of holograms. Production of this printing master is technologically challenging and its absence at single or two layered holograms’ production highly decreases their cost. More advanced graphical ideas about the look and the manner of a hologram however, create a problem with a deficient number of layers used by this easier technology and lead to multilayered draft design and the “master“ preparation.
Technology of “master“ printing offers multilayered design of holographic labels and a variety of graphical options such as texts and pictures in motion (kinetic effects), animated graphical motives (rotating spirals, opening abscissas, blinking eyes etc) and also stereoscopic or true 3D holograms (find in 3D section).
Graphical draft design of a hologram with master uses all levels of grey where every level represents another holographic layer therefore the layer visible in a concrete observation angle. Crossings of levels of grey can then be simply reached by an animation of graphical emblems. Texts or logos can be shown in different shades of grey in multiple sticker parts, hiding and visualizing when changing the observation angle.
Holographic master is a printing template for printing holograms to a film with a metallic layer. Its final look is a glazed zinc metal sheet with an uncountable number of microscopic cavities to created the schema according to your draft design. The price of this master is calculated individually for each order because it depends on the size of one holographic label and the number of them on one printing template.
