Did you know that American Paper Optics, the world’s leading manufacturer of paper 3D glasses, has produced nearly 200,000,000 3D glasses and inserts specifically for binding into magazines, newspapers, and other publications? Yes, that’s right! American Paper Optics specializes in 3D Bind-in glasses and viewers for both large and small publications.
Nearly all 3D bind-in glasses and inserts applications have several key elements that affect the process of inserting the paper glasses. In addition to the particular optics that will make your promotion successful, the size of the insert, weight of the board, ease of the detachment of the viewer, and “machinability” of the inserts are just a few of the important factors to review and test for 3D Bind-in glasses. We will work closely with your bindery or plant manager to assure the insert style will meet specifications required for easy bindery insertion.
In 1998, we pioneered the 3D promotions craze with our 20,000,000 3D Bind-in viewers inserted into 10,000,000 issues of National Geographic Magazines. Months of testing and careful planning paid off as we designed the perfect viewer for easy insertion. In the 20 years since then, we have manufactured multi-million piece inserts for hundreds of the world’s best known publications including Sports Illustrated, TV Guide, GQ, Glamour, Maxim, Motor Trend, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, and the London Sun. We even manufactured 16,000,000 3D inserts for Time, People, Fortune, and Entertainment Weekly, all at the newsstand in the same week. Now that is a lot of eyes!
Our experience and our exclusive optics make American Paper Optics the expert consultant and manufacturer for 3D bind-in glasses applications. Our in-house 3D conversion specialist can transform your editorial or advertising content so that it explodes in your face, jumps off the page, or plays hide and seek.
