2D or 3D Printing
We offer the option of 2D or 3D etching, here is a simple explanation of the difference.
2D crystals: Your precious photo will be etched into your chosen crystal and will present with no appearance of depth. 2D crystals are usually 10 – 20 mm deep.
3D crystals: Your photo will be etched into your chosen crystal, and as part of our process we will create a 3D effect, making your photo come to life. The 3D photo crystal beautifully shows the front and sides of the subject. When selecting your preferred 3D crystal, keep in mind that the minimum depth (front to back) of 25 mm is required, to accommodate the finished 3D image. This option is very lifelike and is our most popular option.
4D crystals: Your photo will be etched into your chosen crystal, and as part of our process we will create a 4D effect, making your photo truly come to life. Our quality 4D Crystal photos will display all four sides of the subject, with the finished look looking so lifelike. When selecting your preferred 4D Crystal, keep in mind that the minimum depth (front to back) must be a similar size to the width of the crystal.
Note: The completed 4D image is made up of several photos "stitched" together, then converted to a points cloud, then using proprietary software, laser etched into a crystal. Please contact us for pricing of your 4D conversion.
