Argraph Corporation's unique Red Eye Dots are an innovative patented product for removing "red eye" from photos. Red Eye Dots are an inexpensive, consumer friendly, one-step solution that consists of various sized cyan dots, or filters, printed on clear mylar.
By positioning the appropriate size dot over the red eye area of the photo, and tracing over the dot with a pen or pencil, the dot transfers to the surface of the photograph and neutralizes the red color. The original integrity of the print, including the twinkle of the eye, is maintained.
Red Eye Dots offer significant improvement over red eye pens due to the fact that the dots are much easier and faster to use than pens. With 1600 dots, one sheet will correct many more photos than the average pen. If the photographer makes a mistake, he can easily remove the dot with scotch tape without damaging the photo and reapply a new dot. Red Eye Dots will not smudge, fade or stain. Red Eye Dots are shipped in a dynamic, self-selling full color counter display box for impulse sales.
