This hologram is also available in the following display options. 3D Gears Desk Stand Hologram. 3D Gears Lighted Desk Stand. 3D Gears Lighted Wall Display.For Best Photos & Video of This Hologram Image, See MATTED Variation. A GEAR or cogwheel is a rotating machine part having cut teeth, or cogs, which mesh with another toothed part to transmit torque. Geared devices can change the speed, torque, and direction of a power source. The master for this hologram was created by the late Steve Provence, and is a wonderful example of how detailed and interesting a multi-color shift element true 3D rainbow hologram can be. Great image for anyone into mechanical or just cool holograms. COLLECTIBLE WHITE LIGHT EMBOSSED TYPE HOLOGRAM. Here we can give only a cursory idea of this Nobel Award winning science with hundreds of patented processes! The production of this hologram took weeks or months with multiple stages and people to make the art, master, tooling and run - an extremely costly process allowing for fast production when complete.
The embossed type holograms we offer are very rare "art" or "proof of concept" masters, embossed using special techniques to allow their amazing detail and often depth. Images are individual, accounting for imperfections and variances. Pricing is based on where/when it was embossed, quality of embossing etc.We have'retooled' certain images to run on current equipment, accounting for the lower pricing on some of our embossed holograms. As with most 3D holograms, this image was created from a custom built model. Hologram models must be completely stable (no movement on a molecular level) and the exact same size as the finished piece. Sometimes pre-existing items such as coins, shells etc. Lend themselves nicely, though often expert model makers are engaged for the work.
The model (object) is placed onto an optical stabilization table with mirrors, mounts and lenses, then exposed to the light of a laser beam reflected directly and indirectly to a glass holographic film plate! This'master hologram' is used to recreate copies. GEAR, EXTREMELY COOL 3D HOLOGRAM IMAGE (MATTED READY FOR DISPLAY): The master for this hologram was created by the late Steve Provence, and is a wonderful example of how detailed and interesting a multi-color shift element true 3D rainbow hologram can be.
Hologram Film Type: EMBOSSED, Hologram Size: 6" X 6", Matt and/or Frame Size: 8" X 10". If you receive this item and don't LOVE it, please feel free to let us know and we'll do our best to make it right for you.(Please see store terms and conditions for other specifics). Holography is a Nobel award winning science come art, and is different from any other 3D medium, no glasses or special effects are required to see the spectacular dimension and realism. It is said that holograms trick light, not your eyes! It is impossible to convey the depth or amazing imagery in a hologram via pictures, as laser made holograms truly need to be seen to be believed! Our holograms are among the finest commercial holograms on the planet and at extremely great values! We offer over a hundred different hologram images, available in 5 display formats: Matted, Desk Stand, Framed, Lighted Desk Stand, and Lighted Wall Display. Our LIGHTED DESK OR WALL DISPLAY variations are plug-and-play, and allow fast'slid-in' changes of same sized matted holograms! Whether for you or as the perfect gifts, they maximize amazement right out of the box! Please choose from one of the variations above these bullet points for the product display type that best fits your needs. Holograms are spectacular, extremely realistic & 3D, and require a quality light at the correct angle to be seen properly. DIRECT SUNLIGHT (not in shadow or haze) is ideal. Holograms also show beautifully under a halogen or single bulb LED.
FOR EASIEST & BEST DISPLAY please choose one of our LIGHTED VARIATIONS (above). We designed these self-contained desk & wall displays with a BUILT IN LIGHT to best show off our (easily interchangeable) holograms, making superb gifts. Unbox, plug in, be awed! I have been producing commercial holography for 30 years. I also own one of the largest collections of fine and commercial art holograms, as well as a multitude of mass-production holograms of various types.
To this day, my main business is in holography related applications, including custom commercial photopolymer holograms. The information stated in the descriptions is always accurate to the best of my knowledge (please let me now if you notice any inaccuracies). The photopolymer holograms I offer in my auctions are some of the finest examples of true 3D commercial (mass-produced) holograms in the world, and rare in that once the existing supply is exhausted, most will never be made again (as the masters were destroyed long ago).
For the embossed type holograms I sell, the most expensive were replicated (embossed) on old hard embossing equipment in the USA and UK and will never be made again on that type equipment, where my lower cost listings are still good reproductions but not quite as bright and may have more imperfections as they were embossed on the compliant rollers of newer equipment (in this case, old school is better but an art that has dissapeared for lack of enough commercial call). Also, I own most (or, in some cases all) of the world's stock of the holograms that I offer.
I have a large inventory of holograms, so offering them for resale on the internet seems a good way to allow people interested in holograms to attain examples of high quality holograms at affordable prices. Art holograms (mainly on glass plates and often much larger) range in price from hundreds to thousands of dollars per piece. Please contact me directly with any questions; or, let me know if you are seeking a particular hologram you have seen, as I may have (or know where to get) it. Also please inquire if you are interested in wholesale or commercial applications of holography.
I will respond to all requests in a timely manner. Listing and template services provided by inkFrog.
