How do they work? They say that at some point, technology is indistinguishable from magic. How else could we perform the miracle of etching a beautiful, three-dimensional image deep inside the hide of a fine crystal? The crystal, even with the 3D photo inside of it, remains flawless and unmarred. This begs an explanation!
The answer, of course, isn't magic - not entirely. You don't need magic to create a 3D photo crystal; you need subsurface laser machines.
Photo crystals are made using a special laser that focuses its concentrated beams of light to a precise point below the surface of the crystal. Each bright point in the image is plotted in the final crystal piece. The laser then focuses a high-powered beam on each three-dimensional coordinate. Once the beam reaches the focal point, the powerful laser pulse makes a tiny void or inclusion inside the crystal. After that, the laser moves to the next coordinate and makes another etched point. Finally, enough points are created to reproduce the design deep within the crystal.

• High Optical Crystal Clear K9 Glass
The highest standards for optical clarity and refraction. Perfect for your design to be laser-etched into the center via subsurface laser engraving. Your crystal will not fade over time, guaranteeing that your memory will last a lifetime.
• Background Professionally Removed
Our designers are trained to highlight the most important parts of your photo, so we can focus on the subject of the picture (and necessary objects that they are interacting with, for example, a chair that the person may be sitting on).
• HD Laser Engraving
We're proud to say that our point clouds* have 50% more dots than what is offered in the market. We ensure that your engraving shines brighter and more defined than any other company. Feel free to contact us if your crystal does not stand over others.
*An extensive set of dots that laser machines use to recreate the image inside of the crystal.
You might be able to program a computer to perform mathematics to a level that humans will never achieve. However, we all know that we need to work together, man and machine, to achieve the best result possible when it comes to art and design. We understand that using automated enhanced software is a no-no for a meaningful gift that will last a lifetime. That's why the 3D Laser Gifts team is trained in the art of enhancing images with that famous photo editor.
With over 150.000 photos edited through the years, we can safely say that we perfected the optimal look of your Photo Crystal.
