Tactile printing is an innovative process that converts any image into a three-dimensional tactile print that blind and disabled individuals assemble in their mind’s eye through touch, sound, and smell. Prints have length, width, depth, and texture. Customized audio narratives, as well as components that emit unique smells, are also available.

3DPhotoWorks has ten years of progressive experience serving the blind and disabled through tactile printing. To request a sample and learn more about this exciting new process, please fill out the following inquiry form or contact us directly at 518-392-4836 or via email at info@3dphotoworks.com.
