Taking Handprints & Footprints with Our Print Kit
We can work either with handprints / footprints you already have or we can provide a simple Print Kit so you can take your prints easily at home. Our Print Kits are sent free of charge and should be delivered within 2-3 business days of your order date. You can e-mail your prints back to us – simply scan them or take a photo on a mobile phone. Please make sure to include your name and order number in your e-mail.
The Print Kit includes a Wipe, which feels dry to the touch, and Printing Paper. Our Print Kits are hospital-grade and safe for use for both adults and children of all ages.
Open the Wipe and apply it to the child’s hand or foot. Make sure to cover all areas you’d like printed. One Wipe can be used to take multiple prints, but you’ll need to take them all in one sitting.
Place the hand or foot onto the Printing Paper and press firmly down for 2-3 seconds. Lightly press on fingers and toes to ensure they make a clear print. Applying more pressure will result in a darker print with less detail, while less pressure will generate a lighter print with greater detail.
Lift the hand or foot up and away from the Printing Paper. The prints will appear instantly. If no prints develop turn the paper over and try again. Take as many prints as you can by simply reapplying the Wipe for each one. Please indicate the print you’d like us to use and the child’s name.
Please make sure to wash your child’s hands and feet after taking prints.
Taking Fingerprints with Our Fingerprint Kit
Our Fingerprint Kits are sent free of charge and should be delivered within 2-3 business days of your order date. After you receive our Fingerprint Kit you can take your imprints easily at home and mail them back to us.
Fingerprint Kit is not recommended for children under 1 year old as their prints may not be defined enough. However it depends on each child and we recommend to inspect your child’s fingers before ordering your jewelry.
Your finished piece will look exactly like the wax imprint. Make sure you like your wax imprint before sending it back to us. You could also send us a picture of your wax imprint before mailing it back to us.
There is no extra charge for double-sided fingerprint pieces.
Text Engraved on the Back
Please let us know in your e-mail the type of engraving you’d prefer to appear on the back. You can choose between initials, first name or hand written name to be engraved on the back of your jewelry. You can also include your child’s birth date. If you chose the hand written name option, please ask your child to write her / his name on any clean piece of paper and send it to us along with the prints.
