Sadly sometimes infant death is not unexpected and there is time to gather precious mementos.
This beautiful, tactile, infant hand or foot print record is an invaluable gift for parents or grandparents who may be too preoccupied to think of gathering important memories for themselves.
The little ones hand or footprint, name, and date (or age) are carved into solid oak and housed in a carved oak frame.
This frame is typically suitable for babies or infants up to four years old.
The child's name will be engraved along the bottom edge of the frame. The age/date inscription is engraved at 90 degrees. There is a choice of four fonts available for this carving - see images.
How does it work?
Once you've placed your order:
- You'll be sent a attractive gift bag with some super-soft clay and simple instructions on how to take the perfect impression of your little one's hand or foot. (The Creators’ special compound of clay allows you try as many times as you like.)
- When you are happy with the impression pop the clay in the oven for 15 minutes to set.
- Send it to the Creators in the pre-paid envelope provided.
- The latest image capture technologies and traditional craftsmanship are then combined to create the perfectly detailed print that is then carved in 'relief' into the solid oak.
- The finished keepsake will be sent to you in a presentation box.
Postage on this item is free.
The frame can be free standing or can be hung on a wall.
