A technique by which the printer places an array of lenses, with a texture like corduroy, over a specially made and very carefully aligned print, in such a way that different viewing angles reveal different image slices to each eye. Seen with a certain viewing angle, this gives a three-dimensional illusion. It can be done cheaply, which is why it's used for 3D postcards, for instance.
