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 16 different crystal shapes: Landscape, Tower, Peak Tower, Faceted Tapered Tower, Heart, Diamond, Plaque, Special Flat, Dome, Cut Dome, Multi Faceted Rectangle, Trophy, Prestige, Iceberg, Arc, Cathedral. MOST of the shapes come in the standard Small, Medium, and Large sizes. Tower and Landscape shapes offer additional sizes of Mini, XL, XXL, XXXL, and MAX. To see what sizes are available in your preferred shape, click on the “Product Specs” drop down menu on Step 2 of the ordering process.
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 into 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 email@example.com.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 and ask the designers to choose the best fitted one, in the Special Instructions Box.
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 email@example.com.
What if I can't upload my photo to your website?
If you are having difficulty uploading the image, then image you are uploading may be too big for our website to capture. We suggest that you place the order without adding the image. When you add your crystal to the cart, with no image, you will be prompted on how to send us the image. You can send an email with your photo as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. If you would like to include the background in an engraving, please write in the ‘Special Instructions’ section during Step 2 of the ordering process.
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. Do keep in mind that the more figures there are in the image, and the smaller the crystal, the less space the designers have to put your 40-max character engraving.
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 and the reasoning for the denial of the 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. If you really must see a proof, please specify in the ‘Special Instructions’ section. Do keep in mind, that if a proof is asked for, the production period becomes prolonged.
