Hologram is an image registered with use
of coherent laser light. It allows to preserve the 3-D information
of a holographed subject. With a single source of white
light, the image is "played back" and appears in 3-D exactly
as it was registered in the studio. Image can project deep
inside, or "stick" out of the picture. Virtually impossible
to copy and displaying unique visual effects, they present
themselves as an unbeatable security solution for brand
protection and brand promotion.
Every Industry and any
industry can use the Holographic products to enhance the
image of their brands in the market as an genuine and authenticated
brands. They are used for attractive product packaging,
security applications (they are almost impossible to counterfeit),
fancy gifts, etc. Holograms are new media of 3-D art, registration
of priceless artifacts, etc. They are also used in new technology
aircraft, automobiles, etc. A few leading companies are
also working on Holographic video and TV systems. For your
quick reference, some of the industry segemnts where Holograms
are used very frequently are as follows:

Can I make Hologram
with my own Photograph?
Yes, and no. It is possible to make
a hologram of photograph, but photograph itself contains
flat, 2-D image information. Therefore on the hologram
it will also look flat. It would look just like a flat
photograph floating in the space on front, or behind the
frame. The third, missing dimension of a photograph cannot
be reconstructed by holographic process.
How to calculate
Cost of holographic
sticker includes charge of master, shticker sheet and
die-cutting mold(only charge for sepcial shape)
Usually, we leave 1mm
or 2 mm gap between two pieces of stickers for die-cutting.
For example,if the size of sticker is 20mm*20mm , it'll
be 49 pcs per sheet(156/21=7.4). We also can make the hologram sticker in roll with same gap. Then you can print barcode, serial number with thermal printer as Zabra printer. The gap can be any distance as your requirement.

How to prepare
This is an important basic step before going for the
commercial production of Holograms.Hologram artWork format
should be in Cdr(Corel draw ), JPG, Gif, TIF, or other
kinds file format which is created by Adobe photoshop,
Corel draw, etc.
What are the
Diffrent kind of masters?
The different kinds of holographic master are as follows:-
1) 2D holographic master.
2) 2D/3D holographic master.
3) 3D holographic master.
4) Flip-Flop holographic master.
5) Dot-Matrix holographic master.
6) Stereo holographic master.
7) Photopolymer holographic master.
Origin of Hologram(master)
holography dates from 1947, when Dennis Gabor, a scientist
researching ways to improve the resolution of the electron
microscope, develop what he called holography. This
was an amazing discovery given that Gabor did not have
at his disposal modern laser light sources considered
key to modern holography. Some twenty-three years later,
1960, the modern laser was invented and serious work
in holography began. In 1971 Dr. Dennis Gabor was awarded
the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work in holography.
was two University of Michigan researchers who, in 1962,
theorized that holography could be used as a three dimensional
visual presentation. These individuals, Emmett Leith
and Juris Upatnieks, happened upon Gabor's work and
decided to apply his theory with the newly invented
laser light sources. The result was the first laser
transmission hologram of 3-D objects. These transmission
holograms produced images with clarity and realistic
depth. Unfortunately, these transmission holograms required
laser light to view the holographic image.
work of Leith and Upatnieks brought about today's modern
holography equipment. The use of lasers, mirrors, splitters
and lenses used in laboratories around the world for
creating holographic images can be credited to their
work. Leith and Upatnieks also learned the importance
of stability in the holography lab. Unlike modern photographic
film which can be exposed for a fraction of a second,
many holographic images take seconds or even minutes
to expose to a photographic plate. During the exposure,
even the slightest movement can destroy the exposure
and require starting over again.
so many scientific advancements, holography was simultaneously
being developed by other scientists. It was a Russian,
Uri Denisyuk, who, in 1962, brought the work of Gabriel
Lippmann (1908 Nobel Laureate) to holography and produced
the first holograms that could be viewed in regular
in laser technology also served to broaden the possibilities
of holography. The pulsed - ruby laser, developed by
Dr. T.H. Maimam of the Hughes Aircraft Corporation in
1960, was such an advancement. The pulsed - ruby laser
system emits a very powerful burst of light that lasts
only a few billionths of a second. This allowed holographic
plates to be exposed much more quickly. As a result
one could now produce holograms of high-speed events,
such as a bullet in flight, and of living subjects.
the most important result of Stephen Benton's work was
that it lead to the ability to mass produce holographic
images using optical embossing techniques. Embossing
allowed the images to be reproduced by a press that
stamped the image into plastic surfaces. With costs
very low as a result of the embossing techniques, the
publishing, advertising, and banking industries, are
now using embossed holograms.
Why Holograms should be used?
The reasons for using holograms and holographic products
are as following:
1. Impact: Holograms are eye-catching
and will be looked at significantly longer than other
graphic mediums. If a customer name or logo or slogan
is on the hologram, the messagfe is enforced.
2. Pass Around Value: people are impressed
by the good holograms and are likely to bring them top
attention of colleagues and associates.
3. Retention: people tyend to keep good
holograms.even we received call from those persons that
after 6 monts or one year after they had been given our
visiting cards wearing holograms. Do you think that a
pen or Calender or a diary can do this's We do not think
4. Security: holograms are virtually
impossible to duploicate and to produce by avereage criminals.
Therefore, they have becoimme the integral part of many
government and commercial security programs. They have
been applied to documents, currency, ID cards and product
lanels. To further detert the counetr=-feiters, the holograms
manufacturers, have added sequential, hidden text and
other covert features to their Security Holographic Stickers. That's
why it is said that's Security Holographic Sticker is a unique optical
security device that has combined the Physics and Optics
to create a three dimensional image on a two dimensional
surface that is used to protect the genuineness of the
brand name and authenticity of a product against the spurious/
5. Commercial Reasons: Holographic products,
commercially, constitute a very unique market in them
selves. They are sold in the market as retail products.
e.g. Greeting cards, Direct-mail literature, collectibles,
trading cards, packaging and displays etc.
6. Promotional reasons: holographic materials
and its allied products catches the attention of the prospects.
Actually, they diffract the seven colours of the spectrum
when the light falls on them. The unique three dimensional
images and colouyrs inherent to the products never let
anybody go without alook that is significantly longer
then any other medium. Once apploied to the product, the
apparent value of the product is elevated no matter which
way you look at it.
