What photos are required/adviced?
 

For more information regarding photo quality please check: http://www.mypersonalisedphotogifts.co.uk/photo-quality-engraving-lasering.php

We usually work with photos that are sent via e-mail. For engravings, we give customers the opportunity to send us .JPEG files between 100 KB - 2MB. It does not matter if the photo is in color or black and white because this does not determines the quality of the final engraving.

If you decide to send us the photo by post then the size of the photo might vary from a A4 format to a passport photo format. We scan the photo for you and send it back to the stated return address. IMPORTANT: You have to send a stamped envolope with return address together with the photo. Please state your name, address, place, and order number behind the photo.

IMPORTANT: The quality of the engraving depends on the quality of the photo. If you provide/send us a photo with poor quality and sharpness, low resolution and/or less than 100 KB then the final result will be affected. Avoid any photos with these characteristics and we will ensure a high quality and good engraving item.

3.
Is it possible to engrave or laser different people in the same product/item?
 

Yes, it is.
The size of the chosen product determines the amount of faces that can be fitted on an item. For example, on a round key chain (ref K05/06) 10 faces can be fitted (5 faces on each side). On the other hand, on our largest jewellery MG08 8 people can be engraved (4 on each side). The bigger the chosen crystal is the more faces, animals/pets, family members an/or logos can be engraved.

 
Jewelry Engraving
 
Please bear in mind that the more space there is for a person/face the better and sharper the final result will be. Due to this, we do not engrave more than 2 faces per side on small medaillons, such as the MH01. On medaillons such as the MG03 no more than 1 face.
 
 
 
IPORTANT: The maximum amount of faces that can be engraved per product/item is given during the ordering process.
 
Photo Etching

If I choose to engrave different people in the same product, do they have to be on the same photo?
 
That is NOT necessary.
You can send us as many photos as it is necessary to engrave what you desire. Our technical team will edit and photoshop the photos in a proper manner so it can be engraved and lasered for the best results. For example, if you have a photo with three people on it but you only want to engrave two, then during the ordering process you can state which ones, for example, the middle, left or right one.

What gives the best result: engraving in silver or gold?
 

There is no difference.
The end result of the engraving in either silver or gold is the same. The choice between silver or gold is based on personal taste.

 
 
8.
How long does the engraving last? Does it fade away?
 

Some engravings come with a lifetime guarantee, we provide a high quality service which ensures you that the engraving will not fade away. By using a fully automated diamond engravement point-by-point technique we can ensure items which are scratch free. We usually get complaints from people who once bought in a jewellery or markt a pendant with an engraving of their desired photo. They stated that the engraving started to fade away and wear out after couple of months. This happens because these businesses use a different engraving technique. Our technique  engraves with a 0.15mm accuracy and in different depths ensuring a high-quality-lifetime product/item.

Important: Our gold items (9, 14 and 18 carat) come with a lifetime guarantee.

How do you laser in crystal glass?
 

We laser, as standard procedure, in 6-8 different layers, that ensures a dip and fine laser structure. The more layers are used, the better the quality will be (also the longer the process takes). We use only the best crystal (K9) for lasering. For all our lasering projects, we offer a lifetime guarantee.

 
 
16.
Once I bought a pendant elsewhere but the quality of the engraving was poor and not sharp enough. How do I know that this is not the case with your products?
 

Unfortunately, we hear this very often. We pocess fully automated and computer controlled engraving machinery, the engraving point-by-point technique ensures sharpness and high quality results. What you and others see elsewhere are just standard engraving machines that make 1 dimensional engraving with only one layer dip. This is not scratch free, therefore, it fades away and wears out. Next to this, we use real silver and gold, not cheap and low quality metals. We also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Please take into account the quality of the photo that you would like us to engrave. The sharper the photo the better the final result and quality will be. Please read our 'photo quality', 'examples' and 'Important: Imitations' sections.

Is it possible to engrave a (company) logo and/or other symbols?
 

Yes, it is possible, as long as you are able to provide us with a digital photo/image (.JPEG). Please bear in mind our photo requirements (minimum 100Kb for engraving and minimum 200Kb for mirrors and crystal).
