Preparation of files


Below you can see the technical characteristics of the files to be printed.


You can download the templates on the respective product page (provided the product is not rectangular-shaped).

General printing

  • PDF file
  • 300 dpi resolution
  • 2 mm of bleeding
  • CMYK format

Playing cards printing

  • A multi-page PDF file with all the cards (one card per page)
  • 300 dpi resolution
  • White frame indicated in the template
  • CMYK format

Cards will feature the white margin illustrated on the template. If you would like your cards printed right up to the edge (with no white margin), please contact us for instructions and a personal quote.

Lenticular printing - flip flop effect

  • PDF file with the 2 images
  • 300 dpi resolution
  • 2 mm of bleeding
  • CMYK format

Colored and textured images work best. Likewise, the visual effect works best with images that are similar to each other.

Plain colors (especially white) are not the best option for lenticular printing as they “do not completely cover” the image that is “behind”. When this occurs, it is what we call a “ghost effect”. For example, if a black image and a white image combine in a flip flop effect, the change will not be clean and effective. The black image will display correctly, but the white image may lose brightness and show traces of the other.

Lenticular printing - motion and zoom effects

  • PDF file with all images (we recommend using 4, 8, or 12 images)
  • 300 dpi resolution
  • 2 mm of bleeding
  • CMYK format

Colored and textured images work best. Likewise, the visual effect works best with images that are similar to each other.

Plain colors (especially white) are not the best option for lenticular printing as they “do not completely cover” the image that is “behind”. When this occurs, it is what we call a “ghost effect”.

The black image will display correctly, but the white image may lose brightness and show traces of the other.

Lenticular printing - morphing effect

  • PDF file with 2 images (the first and last in the sequence)
  • 300 dpi resolution
  • 2 mm of bleeding
  • CMYK format

You only need to create the first and last image in the sequence. The morphing transition between both images will be developed by Liceo.

The images must be similar to each other for the morphing effect to perform well. Likewise, colored and textured images work best.

Plain colors (especially white) are not the best option for lenticular printing as they “do not completely cover” the image that is “behind”. When this occurs, it is what we call a “ghost effect”. For example, if a black element and a white element combine in a morphing effect, the change will not be clean and effective. The black image will display correctly, but the white image may lose brightness and show traces of the other.

Lenticular printing - 3D effect

  • PSD file separated by layers
  • 300 dpi resolution
  • 2 mm of bleeding (up and down)
  • 5 mm of bleeding (left and rigth)
  • CMYK format

Colored and textured images work best.

The 3D depth effect is achieved by using different layers in a PSD file: each layer corresponds to a different degree of depth. Therefore, you should create a layered PSD file where each layer corresponds to a different degree of depth.

Elements on one layer that are hidden behind elements on another layer must be complete (no blank spaces), even if they are not visible to the naked eye. Therefore, the layers must be intact, even if it is done through a rough reconstruction. This image reconstruction can be carried out using the Photoshop cloning tool.
