Frequently Asked Questions | 3D Photo Gifts
What are they made from?
Our crystals are made from K9 crystals and chosen due to their low imperfections and inclusions which make them ideal for engraving our 3D images. They can be polished like lead crystal and have high clarity offering both durability and excellent quality.
Are they breakable?
All of our engraved products are made from high-quality crystal, which is breakable if dropped. As long as you handle your crystal with care and display it where it will be safe you should be able to enjoy it for a lifetime.
How do you clean the crystal?
You may use a glass cleaner to remove dust and restore the shine to your crystal.
Dust it with a microfiber cloth, a glass cleaning cloth, or any other soft cloth.
Don’t use any rough materials that might scratch the surface of the crystal.
Will the image get discolored or fade over time?
The image inside will be safe from discoloration and fading as long as your crystal remains intact.

About Crystal Engraving
2D versus 3D Engraving
A 2D laser engraving is a copy of your photo that will appear as a flat image within your crystal. A 3D laser engraving, is capable of recreating your photo with depth that will make the image more realistic. When viewed from the front, it will look almost like the image is suspended inside your crystal and then when you turn it the image will appear to be following you with its gaze.
How do you put the 3D Image in the Crystal?
We use state-of-the-art laser technology that allows us to create tiny etchings at specific points beneath the surface of the crystal. These points are plotted at various depths to create a 3D image. You can learn more about our 3D crystal engraving process here.
Can I Engrave a Message on my Crystal?
You can add custom text to any size of our 3D Crystal Rectangle, Square, Heart, or Diamond crystals. Upon the selection of your crystal shape and after you upload your photo you can personalize it by just typing into the Custom Engraving text box any message 50 characters or less, including spaces. You will be able to review your message before completing your order to make sure it is correct.
Can You make a Color Engraving?
At this time we are not able to deposit color into the crystal images but that doesn’t detract from the beauty of our crystals.
Can you Engrave Company Logos?
Yes we are able to create a 3D version of your company logo. Logos with textured pictures or shapes create more effective 3D images. We can still engrave a plain text logo or a simple line drawing, but the 3D effect probably won’t be as pronounced. If you are not sure how your logo will look in the engraving you can email us at before you place your order.
