K9 rated crystal is used, which is a high quality crystal guaranteed to be free from marks and air bubbles. It also allows a much finer laser point to engrave without causing cracking or bleeding, resulting in a much smoother finish and giving the finished piece detail above expectation.
Each crystal piece comes in a navy blue satin lined box, protecting the crystal from damage and providing a wonderful presentation to your gift, keepsake or memento.
3D brings your 2D photos to life
Unlike a flat 2D image e.g. a traditional photograph, 3D gives a full impression of the person or pet. From different angles you see them inside the crystal in 3D, so you can look at any side of the crystal to get different perspectives of the subject(s).
The amazing 3D effect is so real and lifelike. Your photographs will almost be like real life captured into crystal.
Your standard 2 dimensional photo will be converted into a 3 dimensional crystal display using the very latest 3D programming PCL conversion tool. This program allows the conversion to be deeper set then most traditional conversions giving you a more authentic 3D description of the person or pet.
Each conversion is manually done extracting features from the subject(s) and is not curved or spooned for effect. All conversions provide each subject with the most accurate of profiling based on the information available but will still be subject to artist interpretation.
The most popular option is to have the subject's head and shoulders immortalised into the crystal but a slightly more expensive option is to have a half or full body conversion.
Choosing your photo
Whatever photo you choose, we ask that it be in focus and with the subject(s) looking in the general direction of the camera. Don't worry about the background in your photo. The designer will carefully remove the background so the focus is on the pet or person.
Choosing your crystal
The smaller cubes are great for one pet or person while the rectangles can take anything from 1 to 4 subjects, depending on the crystal size you choose - please see the diagram on the right.
The orientation of the crystal is usually decided by the image being engraved as some images work best portrait and others landscape, so unless you specifically ask for a particular orientation, the designer will choose the one that is best for your photo.
Display light base
You can add an optional light base to your order for your crystal to stand on. The white LEDs give a beautiful and dramatic effect and help display all the details of your crystal photo beautifully.
The small square light base is 70mm x 70mm and is suitable for crystals up to size 60 x 60 x 90mm (if the crystal is portrait) or 40 x 40 x 60mm (if the crystal is landscape). The large rectangular light base is 60 x 110mm and is suitable for the larger crystals up to size 60 x 80 x 120mm (if the crystal is portrait) or 60 x 60 x 90mm (if the crystal is landscape).
Black 20mm base with central white LED lights. Mains operated.
