Outprints

Raised impressions of your little ones hands & feet 

 Capture a special moment in time with our life size outprints that show every intricate line and crease on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet used to create these beautiful plaques.  

 

Our process involves taking your child's foot and handprints and transforming them into a high-quality 3D keepsake that you can cherish for years to come. We understand that these memories are priceless, so we offer a wide variety of styles, sizes and customization options to suit every taste.

Our outprint plaques are not just for babies & children. Every member of the family can get involved including the four legged ones. Just book a hand & footprint appointment and we'll do the rest.

How does it work?

Step one

  • Book one of our Hand & Footprint appointments 

  • These are half an hour, one to one appointments for you and your family.

  • We only take clay imprints & outprints by appointment to allow time to prepare the clay before you arrive.

Step two

  • You arrive at the studio 5 mins before your booked appointment.

  • We will talk through your options & help you decide what kind of prints you'd like and how many.

  • We gently press the hand & feet into our soft white clay, while you hold your baby or child. 

  • You choose the shape, colours and writing you'd like for us to finish your piece.

  • Decide whether you'd like your piece framed and, if so, what colour frame & mount.

  • We take payment for your pieces on the day of your appointment.

Step three

  • After the appointment, we use your clay impression to cast your outprint using high quality casting plaster.

  • Your plaque is left to dry thoroughly before we paint and finish it to your specification.

Step four

  • If you have chosen to have your piece framed, we will then take your beautiful glazed plaque to our picture framer down the road in Whaplode. When has been framed we will collect it and let you know it's ready for you to collect from the studio.

  • If you have chosen an unframed plaque, we will wrap & box your piece and let you know you it's ready for collection.

A lot of time and care goes in to making your outprints, including slowly drying the plaque so please allow between 6-8 weeks after your appointment for your pieces to be ready to collect.

We are happy to print babies from 4 weeks old, weighing 8lbs or more. There's no upper age limit.
