  • What is TRICK PRINT®?

    TRICK PRINT® is an innovative inkjet printing technology that combines magic tricks and printing.

    The TRICK PRINT® series is based on the basic requirement of full-color variable visual printing triggered by a certain energy. The triggers for change and the variable phenomena are different for each. In addition, TRICK PRINT® is a reversible printing technology that maintains interactivity (bi-directionality) and can repeat its function when the user intentionally takes action to trigger the variable phenomenon.

    The triggers for change and variable phenomena are different for each printing technology, with TRICK PRINT® requiring reversibility (bi-directionality) to maintain interactivity and the ability to repeat functions through intentional user actions that trigger variable phenomena.
