Allkotes kick started 2015 by producing more than 1000 3D VIP security passes for IBM at the Australian Tennis Open in Melbourne. Allkotes, the sole license holder for the US designed 3D technology in Australia and New Zealand, uses Lenticular technology to give printed images as illusion of depth. The background of the design moves when viewed from different angles. Speaking with Australian Printer, Darren Delaney, Allkotes business development director, says the venture into 3D technology was due to customer demand two years ago, has proven to be a profitable move.
“Blue Star Print came to us to do something different for their client that was never done before. They gave us a brief of what they were looking for and we pitched them some ideas.” “The fact that it was never done before made it more attractive to Blue Star’s client, who also wanted something home grown. So we produced more than 1000 VIP security tags for them right here. “Each security tag was different; for sessions, for night games, for day games, for the semi finals, and the finals.” Delaney says the company, which first opened its doors in the 1950s in Melbourne, is always attending to customer demand and adapting to new ways of communicating with its clients, using the latest technology. It recently developed what it called the world’s first print finishing app for iPhone and iPad, which lists the company’s products in nine categories. Now it says it will develop the app for Android, too. Delaney says, “The way we see it is a lot of people are time poor, and we do not have time to visit clients to show them our new products, our app does just that.” “Our IOS app was received so well, it was really flattering. And we knew that all those people who use Android will not have access to our products, hence to keep the momentum we went further and made apps for Mac and Android.” The Android app will be released to the public in early March.
