Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
Prices range from $60 for a single hand or foot, to $190 for both hands and feet in a standard frame. We have many standard 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 3 – 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?
Yes, we can visit you at your home in the Ballarat area, however there is a charge for this service.
Is it non-toxic?
Yes we use a food-grade alginate paste to take the initial moulding 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 make 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. We do provide a baby change table for your use if your baby needs a nappy change.
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.
