Whether it's a capture of a momentous moment in your life, such as a wedding, a graduation or a birth, a picture of a loved one that you want to keep close, or simply a happy, funny moment that you want to preserve, 3D crystal provides a breath-taking option to showcase your moment.

Once you have the photo picked out to commit to crystal, you have the choice of what type of crystal you want it etched into. We have a variety of options for you to pick the best shape to perfectly compliment your photo.

The Prestige shape really would look regal on a desk or mantle, the graceful shape reminiscent of an award. This type could be the perfect commemoration to a major accomplishment in life, such as graduation or the birth of a child!

The Train shape ideally fits a landscape oriented photo, allowing the entire photo to fit fully in 3D form and none of the details to be cut out.

The Flat type also is the perfect shape for a landscape oriented photo, though it doesn't focus as much on the 3D aspect, and is narrower.

The Tower is perfect for a portrait oriented photo - let a loved one or great capture stand tall on your desk or on a bookshelf!

Keep that special someone close in a Heart type crystal. Really, what could be more romantic than a photo of the two of you etched forever in a heart-shaped crystal?

Looking for an edgy option? Choose the Diamond type for a crystal that stands on its edge! It'll keep your memory glistening while looking a little different!

Of course, don't forget you can add a text caption or even an illustration to the crystal. Why not even have one of your child's drawings immortalized?

With all of the choices, you will be able to find the perfect way to keep your memory fresh and sparkling in 3D crystal!

The Positives of Personalized Gifts (3D Photo Crystal)


3D Photo Crystal

Finding special gifts for the people in your life isn't always easy.  One way to make a gift unique for the receiver is to give a personalized gift.  These can be personalized with names, initials and even photos. One gift that has always seemed to be perfect is a 3D photo crystal.  

Personalized gifts can be found that fit every taste.  Think about the person who will be receiving the gift and ask yourself what he or she likes.  Think about any hobbies they have, where they spend the greatest amount of time or any collections they maintain.  The business executive may enjoy a personalized paperweight or letter opener.  The stay at home mother might appreciate frames for family pictures.  The new graduate will appreciate a personalized money clip.

The possibilities are endless.  What happens, however, if you do not know he person well enough to know what they may already have?  That is when you look for items that are completely unique or are welcome even if the person should receive more than one. Items like a 3D photo crystal fit both categories.

What makes a personalized gift so special is that the giver has taken the time to consider the individual and choose something with the receiver in mind.  A gift card or money is generic and can be considered as a last minute gift, but a personalized gift has to be thought about, ordered and made in advance.  It lets the receiver know they weren't a last minute thought to you.  In the end, their eyes will sparkle as much as any crystal.

A Different Way to Say Thank You (Gift with laser photo engraving)


Gifts1 resized 600

Expressing your thoughts can be hard, especially when you are looking for a way to express gratitude perpetually. All around you are people who have touched your life, some probably kicked your butt but you are grateful for it! 

Indirect Effect

A good way of sparking memories is perpetuating your most embarrassing photos (maybe not) using laser photo engraving. You could dig out  one of the black and white pictures of your parents long before you were born; expressing gratitude does not have to be direct, it can be said in a picture, and sometimes in the most unusual of pictures. Laser photo engraving is a process that takes your photo and turns it into a symbol of perpetual memory and appreciation.

Making it Forever

There are many ways of preserving the picture that is to be your message of gratitude,  but nothing says it better than a  three dimensional projection of the picture; perpetuated in a crystal to crown your parents mantelpiece or your dad's desk at work. Using laser photo engraving, your picture is scanned into a computer which guides specialized lasers to perfectly replicate the image on a crystal surface. The results are breathtaking and undoubtedly memorable: A three dimensional (3D) representation of up to three people suspended in a clear crystal; visible from all angles like a projected image from the past.

Go Simple and Sophisticated

The best messages are sent in a simplistic yet with deep meaning and intent. People pour in their memories into pictures to bring back the sweetest and most pleasant memories of the past. You can choose the picture based on:

·      A memorable and sweet event like an embarrassing moment to keep them laughing

·      A fun picture of your achievements to remind them of their contribution

·      A graphic with a perpetual message

With unlimited options for pictures, you can render it in three dimensional or two dimensional presentations in crystal using laser photo engraving, sealing in the message of gratitude and appreciation for their efforts and contribution to your success and happiness.

The photo is then converted onto the crystal by laser by computer and state of the art software. This etches the image of the photo into the crystal with the best resolution possible. Text can be added to the photo as well. Statements such as Congratulations! or Its a boy/girl! can be placed above or below the photo onto the crystal.

There are various sizes and shapes of the crystal and engraving. Some of the choices are heart, flat, diamond, and prestige shapes that come in sizes from small to large. For a tower or train shape, the sizes come in XL to Maximum sizes. Flat crystals can include a background to the photo.
