Atlanta, GA, October 11, 2022 –Printpack, a manufacturer of flexible and specialty rigid packaging, has partnered with Fathom Optics to develop the first hologram-like 3D pouch on a wide web flexographic press. Using standard ink and equipment, Fathom’s software creates next-level optically-varying features with the illusion of motion and depth much like a hologram.
Printpack used Fathom’s software to create the holographic, jungle-themed pouch. The optical print effects make it appear as if the tiger is coming through the surrounding jungle leaves. Designed to stand out on a crowded shelf, this premium package with motion effects gives consumers a truly mesmerizing and interactive experience. The visually arresting printing technique is perfect for everything from pet treats to holiday candy giving to specialty promotions.
This is the first time Fathom’s technology has been used on a wide web press. The pouch will make its debut at Pack Expo 2022, Chicago, IL. Show attendees are invited to come by booth S-1722 to learn more about the innovative printing technique.
