Lithophanes Canberra


Lithophanes are unique artform that use very thin layers of plastic to create a picture. Using variable thicknesses and a backlight, Lithophanes can create beautiful and attractive artworks from your favourite photos. The perfect gift for a family member or friend. A more interesting option compared to a mundane coffee mug or other printed gift. We use our experience in 3d printing to produce high quality, personalised Lithophanes.

Our process


Upload your image at checkout

Use a high resolution copy of your favourite photo. We print the Lithophanes to be 100 mm wide and 200 mm tall. This means a photo with a ratio of 1.57 wide to 1 high is ideal. If you have any doubts, it’s best to upload the whole image, and our experienced team can edit it for optimum results. There will be a seam at the back of the cylinder, so its best to use a photo where the focus is centred in the middle of the image. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.


Allow 3 to 5 days for production

To ensure the highest quality, we print your lithophane very carefully, layer by layer. This process takes up to 80 hours of printing time, and we occasionally have to reprint it if the final result isnt up to our high standards. We will keep you updated throughout the process, and work to get your lithophane made as fast as possible.


Enjoy your new Lithophane

As soon as your print is done, our team will get it shipped and out the door to you. Alternatively if your in Canberra, collect it from our shop in Mitchell. We are sure your friends and family will love it. Best of all, the lamp uses a standard mains power plug and standard light bulbs. Ensuring your new lamp will be in use for years to come.
