What You Should Know Before You Buy

The most unique way to personalize your precious photos would be to make them into crystal photo holders. These unique photo accessories are great to give as a gift to someone special in your life or to simply pamper your favorite photographer with a wonderful keepsake. Photo holders have become increasingly popular over the years and their popularity continues to grow. With the vast choice available to personalize your photos, it will be hard to decide which one is best suited for your needs.

To turn it from a photo gift to a crystal photo holder, simply place the crystal photo block inside a good quality gift box. When ordering a crystal photo box, remember to check that the inside is clear so that you can clearly see your photos when they are being displayed. Thanks to the unique process of electroplating inside the clear glass, your photo appears to float just within the photo block. This makes it a wonderfully personalised gift of high quality.

To start your crystal photo gift-giving venture, why not select some luminous Base Material? There are many different types of luminous bases to choose from, including Hypo-Allergenic/ Vegan friendly, Non-toxic/ Pollutant/ Chemical free, Phosphate-Free, Resin/Acrylic based, Acrylic/PVC based, etc. Once again, these vary greatly in price so you might want to shop around until you find the perfect base material for your photos. The price of your chosen base material will depend on what type of material it is made of. Try and stick to something that is easy to clean and will allow your photos to stand up to the elements, especially when exposed to light.

When choosing the size and style of your crystal photo block, you will also need to think about where you plan to put it. Do you want to display your photo blocks outdoors, or inside? An outdoor photo block could be displayed right alongside a flowering plant. If you have a large-scale portrait format to fill, such as a full-sized oil painting or a portrait size photo; you will probably need a bigger optical glass block to accommodate your photos.

The next decision you will need to make is what type of surface you would like to display your crystal photo. It is possible to buy both an etched glass and a standard photo, so you can easily mix and match surfaces to create the look you desire. Etched glass is usually better suited for larger pieces. Standard photo are normally better suited to display smaller portraits. Etched glass allows more light into the picture, which creates an illusion of depth. A standard photo surface is often prone to smudges and fingerprints, which could be a problem if you have had many guests arrive at the party and all have their own photo to take home.

You don’t necessarily need to buy an expensive crystal photo block to get the effect you desire. Even a basic shape will work beautifully, as they are available in all price ranges. If you want to create a focal point or a back drop for your photograph, then why not use a crystal photo holder to hold a favorite photo. You could also frame your favourite picture and decorate the frame around your favourite shape. This could be a really thoughtful present for family and friends, as well as being useful for displaying your crystal photo collection.
