How To Put Photos In The Four Photo Locket:
The Four Photo locket opens to reveal four secret photos inside, allowing you to keep your loved ones close. This locket is one of our most intricate designs and also our most difficult locket to fill with photos.
We have developed specialist photo technology for our four photo locket. We also employ an in-house expert team who deals with our photo service. Filling the four photo locket can be tricky due to the geometry of the locket. The two external frames have a rim and slightly deeper cavity. The two internal frames have a rim which is flush with the interior of the locket. We use two different weights of specialist photo papers for each of the frames. The lighter weight paper is a self adhesive paper at 130 gsm. We don't use any glue in our lockets, the photos are self-adhesive so that they are cut to fit but not stuck in the locket. We use a thicker photo paper on the frames with rims (250 gsm).
We print our photos using specialist photographic inks and printers for great results at a small scale. Of course, the better the quality of the original photos, the better the final result will be. We don't use any plastic covers in our four photo lockets due to environmental reasons. Instead, we treat our photos with a special sealant made for us in Germany to protect the photos from fade. This is more ecologically friendly and gives a better finish than plastic which goes opaque and doesn't protect the photos from light and dust in the same way. We also don't use glass in our lockets as it could splinter and cut our customers. To insert the photos, we use precision-engineered punches to punch the photos out to the exact size.
What To Engrave On Your Locket:
The Four Photo Heart Locket can be engraved with a small message such as a date, name initials or a personal message. The maximum number of characters which can be engraved is 8. Your locket will be engraved in house by a specialist team of engravers.
