How do I send you my child’s artwork?

How do I get a print of my child’s hands or feet?
For detailed instructions, click here.
1. Use a non-toxic, washable, dark ink on plain white paper with no lines. We recommend testing the ink on an adult first to determine how easy it is to clean and remove.
2. Liberally cover the bottom of your child’s foot/hand/finger with ink.
3. Press the inked surface evenly on the paper and repeat several times.
Hints: its easier to bring the paper to the foot (instead of stepping on the paper). Use a hard surface (hard cover book) to support the paper.
Once you have the prints, take a picture with your phone and upload them on the product order page. Alternatively, you can email them to us.
Do you offer products that aren’t on your website?
Yes! We love to work with our customers to develop products that are right for you and your family. We are very happy to discuss any ideas that you may have and offer some of our own. Together we can create a product from your child’s art that will last for generations to come. Send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get started!

How do I get my child’s handwriting to you?
It’s easy to submit your child’s handwriting for engraving. You just take a picture with your phone and upload it on the product page when you order. For detailed instructions and tips, please read this article.
It works best if you can have your child write with black marker, on white paper with no lines. Then take a photo in good light from directly above with your smartphone and email us the largest file size possible. Don’t worry about the layout of the writing, we can re-arrange it to fit onto the product you have ordered. We will send you a design file via email to approve before we engrave your gift for you!
