    Frequently asked questions

    Yes!  9 times out of 10 we can use your own handprints, footprints and pawprints.  If they are clear, go ahead and order and email them to sue@kiddieprints.co.uk.  We can use prints taken in paint but they have less detail than ink prints. If you are unsure contact us to discuss.

    If you have a fingerprint mould we can probably use this, otherwise we will need to send you a fingerprint kit to take the print.

    Once you have made your order an impression pack will be sent to you within 3 days.

    Once we have received your usable prints, it will take between 10-21 days to complete your piece and return to you. 

    Covid Postal Delays - Please note;  Due to Covid there are many postal delays around the country and this is impacting when you will receive your pack, returning prints, receipt of final order, it recently took 14 days for us to receive a fingerprint!  Please bear this in mind when ordering.

    Events like Mother's Day, Father's day and Christmas are always busy and can impact delivery timescales, during these periods it can take up to 28 days to complete and post your piece. Over the Christmas period the office is closed between 24th December until the second week of January, so please expect delays if ordering within this timeframe.

    You will be sent step by step instructions and enough of the imprint kit to take a couple of prints if you are unhappy with the first set.

    The fingerprints are taken in a product called siligum, its much like play doh;

    1. You will be sent some blue and white siligum that you knead together, until the entire colour is blue and roll into a ball. 
    2. Hold the finger flat and push it gently into the ball making a deep impression. 
    3. Remove the finger and let the print dry. After a few minutes it will go rubbery and at this point the fingerprint has been captured.

    The fingerprint mould is used to make a clay fingerprint which will be used to imprint into the silver clay. Although your actual print is used it will reduce in size slightly during the silver firing process.  

    When taking prints, please use the index finger and not the thumb. Prints can be taken for adults and children.

    Please read if your baby is under 12months old  - We do not recommend fingerprint jewellery for a child under the age of 12 months old, this is because the whorls and lines of their fingerprints are not yet fully defined.  Please consider handprint/footprint jewellery instead or contact us to discuss.

    You will be sent step by step instructions with the impressions kit, which consists of special print paper and an inkless wipe.

     

    1. Remove the inkless wipe from its packet and wipe over every area of the hand, foot or paw.
    2. Press the hand/foot/paw onto the paper provided and hold for a second.
    3. Remove from the paper and watch as the print magically appears.
    • Dont worry about smudges or fingerprints as these can be edited out and take as many prints as you can so we can choose the best one.  
    • Once the smudges have been edited out, we reduce the size of the print so it is a good fit for the jewellery, this means handprints & footprints are perfect for any age group, including adults.
    • There is no mess - the inkless wipes are non-toxic and totally safe to use, they were originally developed in the US to take the prints of newborn babies.

    Pure silver is softer than sterling silver so the charms are subject to wear and tear. Perfume, hairspray and even the oils in our hands can tarnish silver. Avoid wearing the charms where they will knock against other jewellery. Always remove before having a shower or going to bed.

    • Select the item you would like, add to basket and checkout.  
    • An impressions pack with full easy to follow instructions will be sent to you along with an order confirmation form where you can detail the inscriptions required.  
    • Return the prints and the completed order form in the pre-paid envelope provided. Handprints, footprints and paw prints can be emailed to us if preferred.  If you have your own prints we could possibly use these, email: sue@kiddieprints.co.uk. 
    • Once we have received your prints, your jewellery will be handcrafted and sent to you within 2-3 weeks, by Royal Mail second class post. (If you need your order quicker, please contact us to discuss as we can usually accommodate your request).
