Q: What is the difference between Laser Engraved and Color Enamel?

A: Laser Engraved pendants are a black & white recreation of your photograph and there are no inks or dyes used in this process.  The laser creates small holes in the gold creating a permanent image.  Color Enamel pendants are a true color recreation of the photograph which is done in a heat baked process similar to enameling.

 

Q: Will my photos look the same as they appear on my computer screen?

A: Due to the differences in computer screens, PhotoScribe cannot guarantee color matching. We have very tight quality control to insure the best possible product.
