We’re unlocking the doors to let you in on a little secret! Come take a peek behind the scenes with ArtPix 3D and discover the magic of how to make a 3D Keychain. Then we’ll go into where you can get a Photo Keychain of your very own!
Now, you may be asking yourself, “What is a 3D Crystal Photo Keychain?” Good question. Let’s break it up into parts: What is a 3D Crystal Photo? It's a revolutionary method of preserving and displaying a physical representation of a beloved photograph! At ArtPix 3D, we combine advanced digital technology with impeccable artistry to produce a wide variety of crystal mementos adorned with intricate 3D laser engravings. These creations protect your cherished photos from fading and elevate them into magnificent three-dimensional artworks with remarkable precision. Simply put, we make captured memories last forever. Combine that with an accessory you can attach to any set of keys, and you get an extraordinary crystal mini-keepsake that will remind you of the friends, family members, and pets you love every time you unlock your door or start your car.
Wondering how to print a photo into a custom 3D keychain? Our talented team of designers starts with top-quality, optically clear, and highly durable K9 crystal. When you upload an image to our website, the designers carefully screen it for anything that could potentially cause a flaw in the crystal engraving, like blurriness or poor lighting. Once approved, they then begin optimizing it for our etching process with cutting-edge conversion software that transforms your 2D picture into a 3D model. The light points in your 3D model will become the coordinates for your custom engraving!
As opposed to a 2D engraving, where the light points are plotted onto a flat plane, the light points of a 3D model are plotted at varying depths, forming a convex model on the front and a concave effect on the back. This makes it so, once it’s engraved in the crystal, the front side of your image will look almost like a statue suspended in mid-air, while the back side creates a captivating 3D illusion; no matter what angle you view it from, your image seems to move to meet your gaze! We call it “the following effect.”
At ArtPix 3D, we’ve got three timeless shapes for you to make a photo keychain with: a square, a rectangle, and a heart. The crystal shape of your choice is loaded into one of our state-of-the-art laser engraving machines that work from your image’s specific light point coordinates to create precise subsurface etchings and build your image in sparkling detail. The finished crystal is then bonded to one of our high-quality zinc alloy keychains to complete your very own custom-engraved keyring accessory! Better yet, every keychain comes with a convenient, battery-powered LED light to really make your crystal glow. Not to mention, it’s perfect for rummaging through purses or finding lost items under your car seat.
How Much Will It Cost to Make A 3D Keychain?
When searching for a crystal keychain, it’s essential not to compromise quality for affordability. You wouldn’t want that cute picture of your precious puppy to appear distorted in the crystal, right? No way! That’s why ArtPix 3D offers the best of both worlds. Our 3D Crystal Photo Keychains start at just $49 and feature the same attention to detail and realistic depth as our largest crystals. So it’s like every day is Bring Your Dog To Work Day!
