The Future of 3D

In 2004, APO eclipsed six million dollars in revenues for the first time. Jerit attributes this to the steady growth of promotional sales and an increase in 3D glasses sales abroad. Coupled with a major order for DreamWorks™ Home Video and partly due to a “Shrek 3D” DVD order for 20,000,000 glasses, the company was propelled into a record sales year. These colossal orders and a continued increase in the retail sales line were key in this phenomenal success.

In the first quarter of 2005, nearly 4,000,000 3D birthday cards for Southwest Airlines followed by a monstrous 16,000,000 piece order for Mattel’s release of Barbie® Pegasus in 3D. This project alone was worth in excess of $1,100,000.00. As always, APO delivered on time. This fall Dannon® Danimals® drinkable yogurt product will distribute nearly 14,000,000 units of ChromaDepth film for an on-pack and online promotion tied to a Nickelodeon program. Driving APO sales to expected record sales of $8,000,000 for 2005 will be two major television programs airing this fall. In late October, VH1® will air its popular “I Love the 80s™” program complete with 3D ChromaDepth effects that can be seen using APO’s 2,000,000 glasses distributed by Best Buy® Electronics. Flying even higher on the radar will be TV Guide’s distribution of 7,000,000 3D glasses inserts for NBC’s November 21st broadcast of the hit show “Medium” in 3D. As the program is broadcast abroad and syndicated, APO expects additional substantial orders.

Our 13,000 square feet manufacturing facility, the only one of its kind in the world, is solely dedicated to the state-of-the-art production of 3D paper eyeglasses. APO continues to diversify and “see” into the new millennium by striving to reach an ever-expanding world marketplace with our custom manufacturing capabilities, in-house graphic arts department, 3D conversion specialists, and retail divisions. We look forward to serving our markets and changing the world, one pair of 3D glasses at a time, well into the 21st century. APO is indeed poised for a bright future– a future “so bright, you gotta wear shades.”
