A WRH WALTER REIST HOLDING AG COMPANY DNEY OFFICE ALEXANDRIA, NSW 2015, PHONE +61 2 8337 9777, www.ferag-australia.com LBOURNE OFFICE DINGLEY VILLAGE, VIC 3172, PHONE +61 3 9551 3988 With a name change to its print award reflecting the move away fromphotography-basedimaging to digital imaging systems, Agfa's choice of SEP SPrint's innovative lenticular 3D postage stamps was the ideal winner of its 2006 spon- sor award. The stamps were produced for TPG Royal Dutch Post, Holland's official postal agency, to celebrate the 2006 TorinoWinter Olympics. Melbourne-based SEP SPrint were given the challenge of devel- oping a unique philatelic product that 'captured the spirit and ex- citement of the games' -- all within five months - and the result was outstanding. John Shore, Agfa Graphics' general manager, presented the company's Most Creative Use of Imaging in Printing award to SEP's managing director, Mark Reid, at the Australian National Print Awards Ceremony. "SEP SPrint is well known both here and overseas for excellence in security printing," he said. "Recent technological advanc- es in software and printing ena- bled SEP to take a few seconds of motion picture film and recreate it in the printed medium as a len- ticular printed animated postage stamp. The result is a stamp that appears to show members of the Dutch speed skating team racing at high speed." "This stamp is not only unique and innovative but it also con- forms to international philatelic standards making it the first len- ticular product to achieve such certification. The use of a range of digital imaging techniques have taken what by themselves are simple images and turned them into a world class product truly worthy of our award." There are two components to lenticular printing -- a flat printed image (comprising several im- ages printed in sequential, alter- nating bands), and the lenticular lens material through which the printed image is viewed (made of plastic with grooves and ridges forming lenticules that focus the eye to the different bands of print- ed image, depending on the angle of view). The combined result ap- pears as a moving or 3D picture. ProductionoftheDutchstamps involved choosing the film foot- age (the starting point for the de- signers and software company), parallel product testing through stamp finishing lines and mail sorting systems, and then manag- ing the project across the multiple time zones and countries of Aus- tralia, New Zealand, USA, and the Netherlands. The design, layout and prepa- ration of the lenticular images was a collaborative effort involv- ing TPG's philatelic arm, TPG's freelance design company Spec- tra, and New Zealand software company Outer Aspect. Coor- dination of the design, proof, revision and approval cycle was facilitated by SEP's Securus RPS - a secure remote access proof- ing system that allows permitted users to log on, post files, com- ment on corrections and chang- es, and to be advised (via email or SMS) when corrections are made. Securus is fully integrated with SEP's workflow, so geog- raphy and time zones did not interfere with the speed and ac- curacy of the design-to-print processes.
