Our frequently asked questions have to be to do with taking prints and how it works, we do have a quick guide online that gives you an example of our various ranges and how you take the prints, but we thought we’d detail it further below!
Firstly, we’ll go with our newest range, which is our FingerPrint Jewellery (Inked) – ordering is so easy with this and probably the quickest in getting a print and sending it back to us to create into jewellery… If you order from this, you don’t need a kit and you can take it in the comfort of your own home with an ink pad and paper, or by using a soft pencil, clear Sellotape and white paper. With the soft pencil method, you just need to rub your finger into a shaded area of pencil, carefully press your finger onto the sticky side of the Sellotape and slowly peel your finger from the tape to reveal your pencil fingerprint. Then, just stick the Sellotape onto the paper and repeat the process until you are happy with the result – below, is a picture of what the fingerprint should look like on the tape – what you see on the Sellotape is what you will have created on your jewellery so make sure you are happy with the result before sending it back to us!

Next we have our Classic FingerPrint Jewellery – arguably still the most popular range we have and definitely the one that put us on the map for being the market leaders in high quality fingerprint jewellery. When you order something from our classic range, we’ll send you a very simple impression kit and with this, you just need to take the impressions and simply send them back in the free post envelope! These impression kits are very simple to use, with no mess or complicated instructions and each take around two minutes of your time to do. Of course, the putty is totally safe, medical grade, extremely soft to the touch and leaves absolutely no mess or residue. And if you are taking prints of your child and can’t get them to sit still, we’ve heard quite a few of our customers take the prints when they are asleep! Again, we have put a picture below of a good impression in the putty – not all of these will look like this and sometimes we can work with impressions that you may think don’t look as good! We’ll give you enough putty to try at least twice, so at least you have a couple of tries! The tip is to make sure that you mix the blue and white putty together well – it needs to be mixed so you cannot see any mix of lines – as long as you do this, we’re sure it’ll work great for you!

For our Ten Tiny Toes Jewellery this range was designed to capture the precious little feet or hands of a little one, keeping a little piece of them with you wherever you go. For these, once you have ordered, we shall send you our kits which are special wipes that capture the hand or footprints onto sensitised paper – this method was developed for use in maternity hospitals in America and again, are totally safe! Hand and footprints will magically appear on the paper, which you can then send back to us to create your jewellery with. Alternatively, if you already have the hand or footprints created on paper with paint, then of course, send these through and we’ll see whether we are able to use these!

Lastly, we have our Footprint Life Sculptures – if you are ordering one of these “One Tiny Step” baby footprint sculptures we will send you a very simple impression kit (similar to our Classic FingerPrint Jewellery putty) and with this you can take the footprint and we’ll capture your little one’s footprint in either Solid Bronze or Silver (which ever you choose). We also donate 10% of all sales of our One Tiny Step product to Bliss – a wonderful charity for premature babies.
