[′blēd‚thrü] (graphic arts) Of items printed on both sides, the obtrusive show-through of printed matter from one side to the other.

Bleed-through occurs when a paper is too thin or too absorbent. The barrier on our lenticular products is made of poly-film and paper, making it great for preventing bleed-through. Show-through level depends on the opacity of the paper, mostly affected by its thickness. A thicker paper will naturally have less show-through. The backside imprint blends through the front side of the lenticular prints. By adding barriers on the backside with opaque print or lamination of poly film or and paper will block the blend through 100%.
