3d Printing & Advertising Specialists
3DX specializes in creating print campaigns that have never been seen before and are sure to amaze anyone who comes across them. This distinct form of 3D printing is due to the patented and trademarked technology called the Phantaglyph®, now commercially branded as “Pop-Up 3D”, (US Pat. 6389236) that was created specifically for this type of 3D advertising.
The Pop-Up 3D® image is both unique and powerful as a 3D advertising tool for several reasons. It starts where conventional 3D leaves off. Ordinary 3D lets you see a different place through a “window,” but Pop-Up 3D® is a more intimate experience that far exceeds the former technology. It reverses the concept of looking into the pane by placing a product or object right in front of you. Pop-Up 3D® truly take 3D advertising to a whole new dimension. You can lay a magazine flat on a table and watch the object rise up a foot above the table in full 3D, or even lay a 10′ x 20′ piece of printed vinyl on the floor and watch a entire car virtually appear right in front of you. It’s like a hologram from a science-fiction movie – but better. It integrates the product into your world but putting it right in front of you, beckoning you to reach out and touch it – and the consumer always does. This is called the “imprinting” stage, and it is an engaging behavior that doesn’t happen with any other form of advertising. Pop-Up 3D® galvanizes the product into the consumer’s mind and allows your audience to have fun with your brand. As one executive recently observed, “It brings out the child in you.”
The best part of the Pop-Up 3D® technology is in its ease. It’s only a sheet of paper, and one can be printed with its encoding already built-in, using any modern printing equipment. No computer, monitor, or electricity is needed for the printed image. The final products are so compelling that the consumer will place a value on the picture, saving it to share with others. This yields more mileage for your message, plus a lasting memory of your brand that your competitors can’t match.
Print ads are about garnering a response, and 3DX helps drive your customers online from those eye-catching Pop-Up 3D® images. From there, the patented video technology takes over and your audience can enjoy live-action content that rests on and above your iPad. From concerts to interactive educational material, 3D video created by 3DX sets companies far apart from their competition.
Pop-Up 3D® is also perfect for campaigns, games, websites, and products that are viewed on the Apple iPad and all mobile devices. Lay your iPad flat on the table and watch as the image seems to magically rise from the device. The applications are numerous, from simple attention-getters to games that allow for racecars to float inches above your screen. How will you use this technology?
Be it print ads, special edition magazines, iPad and iPhone games or applications, life-size floor posters, presentation materials, or anything else you can think of, Pop-Up 3D® is sure to deliver a 3D advertising and branding experience like no other and make an incredible impact with your potential consumer. Imagine a customer actually tearing out your magazine ad and passing it around to show his or her friends. Through 3D printing, 3DX will truly create a memorable experience for your brand!
