Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Prices range from $140 for a single hand or foot in an exclusive box frame, to $300 for both hands and feet with photo and birth certificate in a standard frame. We have many standard framing options, but we can also help you create a custom designed style unique to you and your baby. We would be happy to discuss any special requirements when you come to our studio.

Do you offer discounts for multiples?

Yes, we offer a 10% discount for multiple orders, so why not order one as a gift and keep one for you! We also offer a 10% family discount for Imprints taken of siblings.

Is a deposit required?

Yes, a $50 deposit is required when the impressions are made.

How long will it take to get the finished product?

Please allow around 4 weeks for your order to be completed.

Can I have more than one child’s hands or feet? (e.g. twins / siblings)

Yes and we offer a 10% discount for Imprints of other children in your family.

Do you take Imprints of both feet and both hands?

Only as required for your order. You can choose what you would like – from both hands and feet, to just a foot, or just a hand.

Can you come to my house?

Sorry, you will need to come to us for this service.

Is it non-toxic?

Yes we use a food-grade alginate paste to take the initial impressions of your baby’s hands and feet. This is completely safe and non-toxic for babies. The final Imprint is prepared using a paste that dentists use to prepare mouldings of teeth.

Do I need to bring a change of clothes?

No, we use a thick paste that does not splash or spill. Any mess can easily be wiped off with a tissue.

How young or how old can the baby be?

It is easier to take Imprints of younger babies (less than three months) because they wriggle less, but we can take Imprints of children of any age.

What are the framing options?

We have a wide range of standard framing styles available for you to choose from.  Samples are on display in our studio for you to view, and there are some examples on our website.

Can I use my own frame?

No sorry, this product is sold as a complete kit and Imprints are not available separately.

Can I have a photo or a birth certificate in the frame?

Yes, we can design a frame to include these or other memorabilia. Please ask us for a quote.

What if I can’t decide on a frame on the day – can I come back later?

Yes, just let us know within two weeks of taking your baby’s Imprints.
