Additionally, selected portions of the image are masked by a lenticular split covering, and a reflective layer is mounted against the lenticular lens layer, with the image and the covering therebetween. This gives a shiny appearance to the unmasked portions of the image and gives a flat appearance to the masked portions of the image. The lenticular split image and the lenticular split covering each respectively include a plurality of separate images and a plurality of separate aspects which include a plurality of strips. In order to obtain a 3-D effect for the sign, the plurality of lenses in the lenticular lens layer are aligned in register with the corresponding juxtaposed strips of both the lenticular split image and the lenticular split covering.
