Frequently Asked Question

How do you engrave images on crystal?

The engraving process uses a laser to etch images and text on your crystal. When the laser is focused on to the glass, the focal point of energy is so high that the structure is changed at a small point. The laser beam is controlled by a computer, creating an image made of a thousand small points. This laser process is known as Vitrography.

What crystal shapes and sizes do you offer?

At 3D Laser Gifts, we offer five (5) different crystal shapes: Diamond, Flat, Heart, Prestige, Tower, and Train. Most of the designs come in the standard Small, Medium, and Large sizes. Tower and Train shapes offer additional sizes of XL, XXL, XXXL, and MAX. To see what sizes are available in your preferred shape, click on the crystal size drop down menu on Step 2 of the ordering process.

Can you turn my 2D image into a 3D image? Yes, our highly skilled and trained designers are working with the latest software and laser technology for image conversion to turn 2D images into 3D images. We make it easy for you - just give us your photo and we do the rest.

Can you engrave a 3D image like a motorcycle?

Yes, we can. It is also possible for a 3D designer to compile 3D data on his computer and later on engrave into a crystal.

Can you turn my company logo into a 3D logo?

Yes, we can take simple logos or graphics and laser them on to the glass in 3D. If the logo you send is not a 2D illustration or is made of complex color gradients, it may not work. If you have questions about your logo, email us at


What types of image file formats do you accept?

Our system can process almost any image file format. The most common file formats include JPG, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, and PNG. If your file format is not listed here, contact us at and we will let you know if your image format is compatible.

How do I upload my photo?

While customizing your crystal during Step 2, click on the 'Select File' button under Upload Picture. A window will open, allowing you to browse through images stored on your computer. It is the same process as uploading a picture to your email. You can upload up to three (3) pictures.

We recommend uploading files between 100kb and 5MB for the best picture quality. Our website has a size limit of 5MB so if you would like to upload a photo larger than 5MB, please send it as an email attachment to

What if I can't upload my photo to your website?

If you are having difficulty uploading, you can send an email with your photo as an attachment to

Will the background of my photo show up on the crystal?

If you order a flat crystal, the background will be included in the crystal engraving. If you choose a different shape, our designers automatically remove the background.

Can I include more than the recommended number of figures?

The recommended number of figures (people, animals, and inanimate objects) varies depending on the shape and size of your crystal. With small and medium crystals, we usually cannot add more figures because of space limitations; it would negatively affect the detail and clarity of the engraved image. With larger crystals, you do have the option of adding more figures for an additional fee.

Are there any photo quality restrictions?

Although we accept most photos, the higher quality the better. It is best to avoid blurry or dark photos. In the rare circumstance we cannot use your photo for 3D engraving, we will contact you for a different photo.

Can I see a proof before ordering?

We do not offer proofs for individual orders. Since our designers do their best to match the 3D engraving to the submitted image, your photo serves as the proof.

» How do I order online?
To start, click the 'Order Now' button on the 3D Laser Gifts homepage.

Step 1 will ask you to choose the shape of your crystal.

Step 2 allows you to add personal details for customizing your crystal. At this step, you upload the picture you would like engraved into your crystal. You also have the option to add two lines of text, for example 'I Love You, Mom,' and specify a font style for the text. After selecting your engraving style, you may add a light base, which will light up the image inside the crystal.

Next, choose the quantity you want to order and include any special instructions for your order.

Finally, click 'Continue' to get to the Check Out page where you can complete your order.
