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

    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, 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 . 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.


    Summer Memories

    Summer Memories

    As the summer holidays are coming to a close, we have been looking back at our favourite summer memories.

    summer memories

    My favourite memory that I am going to treasure from this summer is Lucas beginning to explore. He is now steady on his feet and confident to wander and discover all the new sights, textures and scents that his surroundings have to offer. As much as I love his independence, I also love that he still checks that we aren't too far away. Not ready for him to let go of us yet. - Jenni


    summer memories

    My favourite memory of the summer is having a long weekend in Llandudno. Jacob had a great time, the weather was perfect. We went up the Great Orme, crabbing and he even swam in the sea. He is growing up so fast! - Greta

    I still had to work all summer but there were some lovely days when I could bring my computer outside and enjoy the sun whilst working. It’s those days that make my happy I work for myself and not in someone else’s stuffy office.

    Lovely photos too. We had a lovely time in Northern Ireland for a few days, especially our day at Mount Stewart. Well worth visiting if you haven’t been.

    How lovely that Lucas is exploring now! We had a great time in Cornwall and it was lovely walking around at Lands End, knowing we were right on the edge of the country! I love spending time with the family and not having school to go to (them, not me…)
