Engraving Methods – Crystal Photo Block and Portrait Format

Are you looking for crystal photo gifts? There are several beautiful crystal photo gifts available in online stores. However, crystal photo glasses are among the best products as they are crystal clear and come in several designs that are available in a number of styles and colors. To ensure that your crystal photo gift is indeed a crystal photo, it must have the best quality.

Most crystal photo gifts come with an engraving of some sort on the front. The quality of the engrave determines the quality of the crystal photo. High quality crystal photo glasses are required to be created from the finest optical glass, like the 925-karat glass used in most optical stores. Clear glasses display true 3D pictures, unlike ordinary glass which shows different light patterns and stress lines.

A laser photo block can be used to create a beautiful crystal photo. However, because of the special structure of laser photo blocks, they tend to break easily. You should therefore look for a product with an improved engraving quality. You should also look for a crystal photo that is equipped with a luminous base.

Lumiated or luminous base – A luminous base improves the visibility of your crystal photo. Therefore, it is important that you choose your product wisely because even if your crystal photo glasses are well-made, if they have no luminous base then they will not be effective in providing you with the 3d photo crystal effect. Most glasses with luminous bases use high quality silica instead of glass to make up the crystal photo. You will also find them in many different colors, which makes choosing one pretty easy. However, it is important that you check the co-longevity of your selected product because as soon as it breaks, it cannot be engraved again.

Crystal photo block – The most popular method of laser engraving is through crystal photo blocks. They are particularly effective because they are very easy to use and they do not need any additional equipment for their working. However, if you are on a tight budget, then you can use regular black construction paper to make up a regular-sized photo. You should then use a fine point pen to etch the photo. This method does not allow much room for error, because even the slightest error can ruin the entire engraving.

Optical glass – The most common material used in making the crystal photo blocks is optical glass or a combination of optical glass and polymers. Both these materials are transparent enough to allow light to pass through, but they are still opaque, which means that the light cannot pass through. To achieve this, a laser gun is used to activate the iridescence coating on the surface of the crystal photo block. When this happens, the light that passes through is bent into the pattern that is used. Using a regular pencil as a brush, the pattern can be copied onto the portrait format paper from a special stencil.
