The photo engraving process uses a diamond tipped head to imprint the photo onto the metal surface of the item. The photo's are engraved in shades of white/grey and when viewed in different light an holographic effect is produced on the item.
As most of our items are highly reflective and mirror polished, depending on the angle and the light reflecting on the surface, this will result in whether the detail in the engraved photograph can be seen or not.
Most photographs can be engraved but it also depends on the quality and also the positioning of the subject(s). For example, a large group photo with many people or distance shot would not be suitable for our charms and smaller items due to the small area to fit the detail into. A good quality image = a good quality engraving. Please see our guide here for more information, or just drop us an email@example.com">email if you have any questions.
We aim to complete and dispatch all orders within 1-3 business days. Shipping times depend on the shipping option you choose during checkout.
2nd Class Signed For - Once dispatched it usually takes 3-5 business days for the item to arrive.
1st Class Signed For - Once dispatched it usually takes 1-2 working days for the item to arrive. Please note: This option only affects shipping time. It will still take 1-3 days to complete your order before dispatch.
International orders take around 10 working days to arrive after dispatch, this can be shorter or longer depending on how quickly it clears customs in your country.
A signature is required on delivery for all shipping options.
Due to the way our shopping cart/web software is coded we need to split orders up to 2 separate items. The first being the product (eg. Heart Charm) and the second being the type of engraving you select (eg. Photo + Text). Your order is not affected and neither is the total cost. The total price you see at the checkout is the price you pay.
