How old does my child have to be to have prints made into jewellery?
Hand and footprint jewellery is suitable for all ages (including adults and pets!). Babies have to 'develop' fingerprints which is usually at around 1 year in age, with this in mind, it is not advisable to order fingerprint jewellery for children under the age of 2 years. This will help to ensure they have a clear enough print to show in the jewellery.
How easy is it for me to take the prints myself?
It is easy and quick. Fingerprints are taken by mixing two pieces of putty together, rolling into a ball and pressing the finger into it. Handprints and footprints are taken using a non-toxic, mess-free wipe and special paper. Simply wipe the hand or foot, place on the paper and remove. Simple! Each kit has two pieces of paper and we encourage you to put as many prints on each as you can and then choose your favourite.
