Personalized items and gifts are so very precious to give and receive. I'm especially partial to personalized items of my children and family. I've had my children's images on mugs, calendars, journals and into photo books. I've discovered a whole new level of personalization.
Light Affection is an amazing company that makes a one-of-a-kind personalized photo light that come in various sizes and options. I got the opportunity to have a night light made and of course I chose to have it made from a photo of my children. I have been so excited about this and gush about it to anyone who will listen. This is truly one of my favorite things.....ever! I even thought about gifting it to someone for Christmas but couldn't part with it.
How does it work?
You send them a photo. Based on how big the item is, you may want to limit the amount of people in the photo. I was pushing the limit with 2 people in mine but there was just enough room for the night light. I used this photo below.
Light Affection carves the piece out of a very durable material that has a marble feel to it. It almost looks like a very hard white soap. The carving technique is similar to the one used in Lithophanes.
"Based on an age-old art form known as lithophanes (Greek for vision in stone), the engraving of an image comes to life when illuminated from behind. The varying thickness of the translucent material creates the illusion of the original image. Today, Light Affection is creating these pieces using modern, long-lasting materials that give this unique effect."
Because the material is translucent, it displays the illusion of the photo when held up to a light. It is said to last for hundreds of years without changing it's quality or color. That carved piece is put into a high quality wooden frame. The style and color will depend on which you choose.
Light Affection assembles it, so that there is a light behind the carving and the image is displayed illuminated when you switch it on. They arrive with the bulb already installed, so all you have to do is plug it in and turn it on. Each piece is truly unique and you will receive a card with it's own serial number assigned to it.
I tried to get as many angles as I could in the pics above to show you the intricacies of the product and carving. There is one in the middle of it almost from the side where you can see the carving with the highs and lows.
I am simply amazed at my new night light and how Light Affection managed to turn a simple photograph into this masterpiece. I have only positive things to say about the product and interaction with the company. I cannot express enough how much I adore it. These will make for a fantastic gift.
Check them out online, as there are more sizes and styles available.
