How do I take prints for my handprint/fingerprint order?

We are able to use any prints that you already have, which may have been taken with paint, ink or invisible ink. If you don't have any prints that you would like to use, then all of our handprint products offer you the option to order a FREE handprint taking kit when you place your order. These kits are really easy to use and less messy than using paint!

Once you've taken your prints you can send them to us via post (there is a freepost envelope included with your kit). We do recommend that you send your prints back via email though, as it is quicker and safer to do so, it also means you can keep the original prints as a keepsake. You can either scan your prints, or take a high resolution photo with your phone and send them to studio@bellaandbow.co.uk.

How do I use prints that I already have?

We simply need a copy of the prints that you already have. You can either scan the prints or take a high resolution photo and email them to studio@bellaandbow.co.uk. Alternatively, you can photocopy them and send them via post to our studio:

Bella & Bow Ltd, 3b The Common, Parbold, Lancashire, WN8 7DA.

Can I return/exchange my item or cancel an order?

Goods that are personalised, bespoke or made-to-order to your specific requirements are non-refundable, unless faulty. All other items can be returned if they are in their original packaging, please contact us within 7 days to arrange any returns. 

Please see here for our full returns ad cancellation policy.

    How do I upload prints that I already have?

    For our handprint products, you are able to upload a jpeg (photo) file with your order. Use the 'upload prints' facility when you pick your product options. If you have more than one image to send us, then please email them to studio@bellaandbow.co.uk, using your order number as a reference.

    My item has not arrived on time, what should I do?

    Once an order has been dispatched via Royal Mail you should receive a confirmation shipping email. Your order can be tracked here http://www.royalmail.com/ . If you are unable to receive your delivery, then the postman will usually put it thorough your door or leave a delivery card. If the item is not received by the confirmed date, please check with the local depot. Occasionally deliveries may be delayed during busy periods such as Christmas. Unfortunately we have no control over delays that are due to Royal Mail. Please be patient if this is the case and keep tracking the item via the Royal Mail website.

    What do I do if I'm not happy with the prints that i've taken?

    There are very few handprints that we are unable to use, and most of the time we can clean up any smudges that are made during the print taking process. If you are unhappy with the prints that you've taken, then please send us a photo or scan of them anyway, along with a note explaining that you would like us to take a look at them for you. We can normally edit them and send a copy back to you to check before processing your order.

    If you would prefer to order a replacement kit to take another set of prints, then they are available to purchase via our website.

    Christmas gifts for grandparents

    Christmas gifts for grandparents

    All Grandparents love showing off their grandchildren and have so much love for each of them. So why not give them something special this Christmas, to provide them with bragging rights around their grandchildren? We have some ideas for some great Christmas gifts for grandparents, and they’re perfectly created so they can show how much they care for their nearest and dearest throughout the year, even if they can’t be with them.

     

    The ideal Christmas gift for Grandma

    Most Grandparents love a good quality piece of jewellery, and I’m sure grandma is no different! This stunning sterling silver Handprint Disc Necklace is something grandma will love. It’s the perfect way for her to feel close to your little one, as it’s engraved on the front with a hand or footprint, whilst the back can be engraved with a name. 

     

    The Small Handprint Disc Necklace comes complete with a sterling silver trace chain which is adjustable to 16 and 18 inches. You can check it out here.

     

    A beautifully traditional gift for Grandad

    Grandad will love getting out this beautiful Handprint Money Clip. It makes for a really special Christmas gift as it has room for up to three children’s hand or footprints and names, along with a message on the reverse.

     

    The money clip is chrome plated, enabling the prints to reflect the light and giving it a lovely subtle look. You can opt for one, two or three children’s prints, but note that the more you have, the smaller they will appear. You can check out all the details here.

     

    Keyrings make great Christmas gifts for Grandparents

    Who doesn’t love a keyring, and I’m sure nanny and grandad are no different! Not only do they make for a practical Christmas gift for grandparents, but they also make for a super personalised solution too.

     

    The Personalised Grandad Keyring has a beautiful Grandad word cloud, showcasing all the special words you associate with him. The reverse side can be engraved, so choose from a name, date or message of your choice. And because it’s lovely and chunky, it’s easy to hold and find in your pocket. You’ll find all the details for this keyring here.

     

    Next up, we have a beautiful mirror finish, Personalised Heart Keyring for Grandma. It has a quality chunky feel about it that makes it suitable for holding and finding in a handbag, plus it has room for a special message, names or dates of your choice. It makes a great accompaniment to our Personalised Grandad Keyring, as it comes with a word cloud of special words. So why not get them both as matching gifts! You’ll find details of grandad’s version above, whilst Grandma’s one can be found here.

     

    And finally, if you’re looking for a keyring that’s a little bit different, why not opt for our mirror finish, stainless steel Photo Engraved Keyring? You can opt for a photo on each side or just one photo and a message on the reverse. This is the perfect opportunity to showcase that special keepsake photo, making it really easy to show everyone their favourite grandchild!

    Christmas gift ideas for him

    Christmas gift ideas for him

    When it comes to picking Christmas gifts for him, it’s not always easy, is it! Men can be really difficult to buy for, as they aren’t always forthcoming with gift ideas to help us narrow down our options. This often leads to the gift buyer resorting to those default ‘no idea’ Christmas gift staples - socks, smellies and vouchers.

     

    But there are other available options, from jewellery to practical keepsakes. The beauty of this type of gift is it can often be personalised, making it really easy to show how much they mean to you or celebrate an important date or event.

     

    So if you’re looking to find a great gift and avoid gifting underwear, slippers or smellies this year, check out these great Christmas gift ideas!

     

    Christmas gift idea #1: Men’s Leather Handprint Bracelet

    This sturdy men’s leather handprint bracelet is one of our most popular products. It comes in a choice of black or brown leather and three wrist sizes. Just make sure you order the right wrist strap size, as it cannot be altered. The stainless steel secure closing clasp has room for up to four handprints and names. There’s also space to add a brief message - making it perfect for sharing Christmas love and wishes!

     

    Christmas gift idea #2: Fingerprint Dog Tag Necklace

    Dog tag jewellery is always popular, and this fingerprint dog tag necklace is no exception. Again, it comes with a couple of engraving options; you can have a name and fingerprint on both sides, or opt for one fingerprint and name, with a message on the back. It’s made of highly polished stainless steel and comes supplied with a 24” stainless steel ball chain - and it’s a perfect gift for a special man in your life.

     

    Christmas gift idea #3: Daddy & Me Keyring

    What’s great about this stainless steel Daddy & Me keyring is it makes for such a sentimental and personal gift! You can capture daddy’s handprint with his little one’s handprint within, or you can change the wording, use grandad’s handprint and make it a gift for grandad! You could also opt to make it a gift from you to your partner by switching out the handprints - making it a Me & You style keyring. Just know that if you go down that route, the handprints will be scaled right down!

     

    Christmas gift idea #4: Handprint Money Clip

    If you’re looking for a really special keepsake, why not opt for this lovely chrome plated handprint money clip? It has space for up to three children’s handprints on the front and a short message on the reverse. Be aware that the more handprints that are added, the smaller they’ll be.

     

    It isn’t always easy to pick Christmas presents for men, but the ideas above offer you some good solutions. Not only do they each make for gorgeous gifts, but they’re also personalised too, making them truly unique and sentimental - and perfect for spreading a little love over the festive period. So why not add them to your gift list for your partner, father and grandfather!
