How do I order online?
Simply go to the Store Section.
Step 1, choose your crystal shape.
Step 2, click Order Now and this will take you to another screen where you will customize your crystal.
Step 3, customize your order by uploading the picture that you would like to be engraved into the crystal.
You also have the option to add text, for example, “I Love You Dad”, make sure you choose a font style for that text. After selecting your engraving style, you will choose a light base color, which will illuminate the image inside the crystal. Put in the quantity you would like to order and add any special instructions if needed. Click on Continue which will bring you to the Check Out page to complete your order.
Is the background of my photo etched too?
When you choose the 5"x 7" Flat crystal- Yes it will. The entire photo will be 2d laser engraved inside the glass. If you choose any other crystal, our designers will remove the background from the original image and center the figures from the chest up in order to create the best 3D model which result in a perfect laser etched crystal.
Can you combine people and pets from multiple photos and add more than two lines of text?
Yes, we can create a collage of several people and/or pets with as much text as will fit on the crystal piece you select. Depending on the size of the crystal piece, we will combine multiple people or animals from multiple photos and any text to fit into one crystal piece.
There will be a $10 per person/pet charge for the additional photos, the first image is always included for free.
Is my photo good enough quality for the crystal I want?
The general rule is the better quality of the photo the better quality engraving it will provide for. Our photo editors are expert Photoshop professionals and they will employ every Photoshop trick in the book to enhance your photo. If the photograph is slightly out of focus, too bright, too dark or too small it will be challenging for us but usually not impossible to create an acceptable photo crystal. It all depends on the extent of the problems with your photo. If we think your photo is not acceptable we will call you to discuss possible options.
Can I send the file from my digital camera storage card?
Yes as long as the image file is in a .jpg format we can use it
What do I do if I don\'t have a digital photo?
You can mail us your original hardcopy photo or you can scan your original photo to create a digital image file. We will return your photo with your finished photo crystal.
What resolution should I scan the photo?
Usually 300 dpi (dots per inch) is acceptable. If we are enlarging the photo to fill a large sized crystal from a small photo 600 dpi would be better and mailing us the original photo would be best.
What file format and how large can my image file be?
We accept .jpg, .jpeg .tif, .pdf, and .psd file formats. The .jpg file format will compress a large image to create a smaller file size for uploading but the higher compression ratio you use the more image quality will be lost. Your file shouldn\'t exceed 6 megabytes. A 6 megabyte file size should upload fairly quickly if you have cable or DSL internet connection. If you have a dial up telephone connection for your internet, it will take several minutes to upload a 6 megabyte file. If your file is too big to upload or email you can copy the file to a CD-R disk and mail it to us or simply mail the hardcopy photo and we will scan it for you.
