Add depth, motion and chromatic effects to a wide range of print applications. We enable our print partners to create cost-effective holographic product labels and security features using our proprietary Lumii Light Field Engine. Bring your hologram to life using today’s commercially available printing presses. No extra foils or special inks required.
Everyone wants their product to stand out on the shelf. Foils, films, and special inks can make a big impact, but add a big cost to your packaging budget. In some applications, like shrink sleeve, your options are even more limited.
Lumii has a brand new take on packaging embellishment. Using concepts from AI and machine learning, Lumii creates 3D and motion effects that can be printed on clear film on flexographic label presses – no new materials or special processes. Your designs will jump off the shelf, all while managing costs and improving recyclability.
At the core of our technology is Lumii's Light Field Engine, which uses Machine Learning-inspired algorithms developed by Lumii's MIT PhD founders. The Light Field Engine processes billions to trillions of light rays for each design we create, making high resolution patterns that can be printed with today's presses on the front and back of clear substrates. Because of this software and algorithms-driven approach, Lumii is something entirely new in embellishments for brand protection, and packaging and security. We provide digital services that integrate into your current pre-press workflow. As an end user, you can stick with your current production partner. As a converter or press operator, you can re-sell our services as a big value-add to your business.
Because of this unique approach, Lumii does not do production. If you're an interested brand or security customer, we can put you in touch with a certified reseller. If you operate press equipment and want to add Lumii to your product portfolio, get in touch below!
Lumii has a proven in-market solution for shrink sleeve and PSA label stock on flexographic presses. The effect works with 50 micron PVC and PET films to create material and motion effects. Effects can be transmissive/rear-illuminated on a clear bottle, or made reflective with a white sub-surface flood-fill pass in most circumstances. Effects can work in one color channel at a time, but can be artfully integrated with spot and process color printing, and digital customization on hybrid presses, such as the MPS EF Symjet hybrid printing press.
Looking for adhesive labels? We can create effects on substrates between 50 and 700 micron. 3D effects require thicker substrates.
The key ingredients your process needs in order to use Lumii effects are:
• Transparent substrate
• Duplex, registered printing
• Press fingerprint / characterization by Lumii
With the above in mind we are developing applications across many areas of commercial print and manufacturing. Have an idea for a high volume application with a repeatable production process? Let us know!
Portico Brewery came to Lumii with a problem. They have a popular micro-brew in the Boston area, Fuzzy Logic, but it needs a sales pick-me-up. Portico's motto is "Design in your Stein", and Fuzzy Logic's label graphics need to reflect that high-design sensibility, while maintaining the highest standard of recyclability. To reign in costs on a short-run specialty brew, it was necessary to stick with the standard 50 micron shrink film used in the craft brew world today. Fully embracing their Boston Nerd roots, Lumii worked to breathe life into Portico's design that pulls directly from the math behind the computer science methods of Fuzzy Logic. The triangular decision regions sparkle and light up as you rotate the can, rewarding your decision to grab a six pack of Fuzzy Logic at the beverage cooler. The logical choice!
Our service is designed to fit within your existing workflow. We’ll work with you to create the final graphics with stunning holographic effects. We work with production houses to make sure our deliverables are fine tuned for perfection. We can work with your existing design team to create and preview holographic effects. Need a designer? We can provide design services and recommend effects and applications. Once the design has been completed, we use the Lumii Light Field Engine to turn your flat packaging design into a holographic work of art. Deliverables are provided to the production house of your choice, and your holograms are ready to hit the shelves.
