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

    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.

There are so many things you can create yourself - from blankets and quilts through to toys and playmats. There are some cute ideas over on The Idea Room website.

    Handprint jewellery baby keepsakes

    But if you want a lasting reminder of your baby’s birth, you have to opt for handprint jewellery keepsakes. They’re not only gorgeous, but they’re also truly unique. Each piece of jewellery features a tiny hand or footprint of your little one, so you can always keep them close to you. 

    Why not opt for a leather handprint bracelet or a chunky square handprint keyring for the proud new father? Your baby’s hand and footprint can take centre stage on the front, along with their name, plus you can also include a short message on the back. They both have plenty of room for engraving. In fact, the keyring can have up to eight names and hand or footprints on it - making perfect if you’ve had twins or triplets!

    For the new mum, a beautiful piece of jewellery is the perfect baby keepsake. Options include this pretty large handprint heart necklace. It has room for up to three names and hand or footprints on it and a short message on the back. Alternatively, opt for a handprint heart charm bead. Available in three colour options, you can also customise it in several different ways. 

    A handprint jewellery keepsake is not only practical; it’s a beautiful way of celebrating a baby's birth. With a wide range of available options - from wallet inserts through to hanging star tree decorations, there’s sure to be something to suit your taste.
