We offer the widest variety of holographic imaging techniques available today. From simple pattern/logo surface images to the most sophisticated security holograms, we can meet your imaging needs.

Creating a custom hologram starts with your concepts and project requirements. Descriptions and illustartions of the six most common types of holographic imaging are below.

2D Holograms and Gratings

2D holograms use the characteristic "rainbow" coloration directly on the surface of a label, ID pouch, etc. offering a bright active image surface. 2D hologram images are primarily used for patterns for IDs, packaging applications, and backgrounds for overprinted labels.

Multi-Level Graphic Holograms

UMI Logo

Multi-level graphic holograms create 3D images by placing 2D graphic images on different levels. Commonly called "2D/3D" holograms, their brightness and vivid colors make this technique very popular for logos and character properties.

3D Holograms

3D Hologram

3D holograms record actual 3D objects and models created specifically for the composition. 2D graphics are often used to accent or add additional depth to the image.

Dot Matrix Holograms

Dot matrix holograms are produced from computer generated images that are pixelated. Each pixel, or dot, can be individually oriented. When combined, the many dots of the hologram create the image or images that change as the hologram is tipped in the light. Resolutions range from 100 DPI to 1000+ DPI.

Stereogram Holograms

Versitile stereograms are produced from film or computer generated images. This type of hologram is used to capture 3D images of people and large objects. Animation and multi-level graphic images are also produced using this method.

Multigram® Hologram

Multigram holograms are produced using a combination of holographic imaging techniques. Primarily used for security applications, these holograms require a sophisticated lab that can produce a number of hologram image styles and have the ability to combine these diverse styles into a single image.

Setup, Mastering, and Tooling Costs

One time costs to produce custom hologram images start at $2250.00 US and cost $8,500.00 US for multigram security projects. Each hologram project will be qualified and quoted on a per job basis.
