We use cutting edge technology to internally laser engrave your photographs and images to create our stunning photo crystals. Our trained Graphic Designers convert your images into laser ready files which are then used to laser etch your image within the purest form of K9 optical glass. We treat every image with respect to ensure your photocrystal becomes a unique talking point, the end result is a very personalised keepsake that will never fade or deteriorate, a photo crystal gift that will be cherished and a memory that will stay with you and your family for years to come.

Choose between 2D and 3D Photocrystals

Both of equal beauty, choosing between a 2D Photo Crystal or 3D Photo Crystal comes down to a matter of personal preference and the crystal shape.

2D Photo Crystals

Our 2D crystals are perfect for all kinds of images, in fact some of our most popular crystal shapes are produced as 2D crystals. To create a 2D Photo Crystal our designers transform your image into a laser ready file, once lasered, the image appears flat within the crystal when viewed from the side. The thickness of the laser etched image is approximately 2mm thick inside the crystal, this has an advantage and means the image can be placed into any of our crystal shapes, including our crystal photo jewellery which are only 5mm thick. For more information and examples, please visit our 2D Photos in glass page.

3D Photo Crystals

Ever wondered how you would look in 3D?
Whereas the image in a 2D laser photo crystal is flat inside the glass, the image in a 3D laser photo crystal has depth. When viewed from the side the image has a profile. To achieve this all we need is one standard photo, from this our talented designers convert your photo into a life-like 3-Dimensional image, effectively creating a 180 degree 3D portrait. Because the image has depth, the crystal itself needs to be slightly thicker than for a normal 2D photo crystal, so we have seperated our ordering menus into 2D Photo Crystals and 3D Photo Crystals for ease of use. 3D Photo Crystals are slightly more expensive than 2D photo crystals due to the level of skill required for the 3D conversion process. In fact, this amazing process has been perfected over the years by our designers and they truly are skilled artisans. 3D photocrystals are perfect for images of people or pets, they are the ideal gift when you are looking for something with that little extra wow factor for the person who has everything. For more details please visit our 3D Photos in glass page. In addition to the above information, you can also find videos on our 3D Conversion page comparing the difference between the two processes.
