Also, we do 3D "outprints" where the foot or hand come OUT instead of in.

Here is a recent product review from a customer : "My mom ordered the flower handprint plaque from Etsy for my daughter. It turned out so amazing! The quality far exceeded my expectations! It is now hanging in my daughter's room and we have already received compliments about how nice it is and where we had it done. I will definitely be using The Handprint Lady for my future children's hand and footprints! Thank you for your beautiful work!"~Sonia Miller


Often imitated, never duplicated! We use super high quality molding material that is permanent and does not lose it's detail after multiple castings and we do not use play doh. We use our exclusive casting process that captures the exact print you give us. We use USPS PRIORITY 2-3 day shipping with tracking, insurance up to $50, and doorstep pickup and flat rate boxes to give you the best deal for shipping multiple items, and include a preaddressed, prepaid package for you to send the molds back to us. We pack really well! We use the whitest purest clay available, and we have perfected our technique for 17 years-we have the deepest prints around. You are not limited to what you see here; you may order anything you see on my blog at: http://www.handprintlady.blogspot.com . This is also where you will find 9 pages of pictures of my work in a diary form, also color chips for glazes, and sample pics of ribbon choices, font choices, edging choices, and embellishments.
Give a gift certificate for your "mom to be" or "new mom or dad" for the perfect gift. It is cute (not from office store) and sent in a non-crushable envelope with the gift certificate (5x7") enclosed in a nice envelope. It can be filled out and sent directly to the gift recepient with our information and information how to order, and a gift note from you, or sent directly to you for giving in person.
Everything is custom-choose your shape, color, personalization, ribbon color, ect. If you have a question about how this all works, just convo me through etsy, or email me at handprintlady [!at] hotmail.com or call me at 949)257-9176.

I keep the casts for approximately 1 year, like a photographer keeps the negatives, if you wish to reorder.

Ceramic work is kiln fired at least twice, ususally 3 times at approx. 2000 degrees F for 8-12 hours and heirloom quality. Please allow at least 8 weeks from the date I receive your molds back for finished items in non-holiday times. Personalized ornaments take 6 weeks during non holiday times. We usually have a back up for Christmas and Mothers and Father's day, so order at least 8 weeks before these holidays to allow additional time!
We have been in business since 1997 with a storefront in Southern California and thousands of satisfied customers. After hundreds of requests from all over the country and abroad, we started doing this by mail.
We do handprints and footprints for ALL ages, not just babies...and we also do PAWPRINTS.
Sales tax is added for orders in California only.
We can also ship straight to your gift recipient with a gift note from you.

handprintlady's Shop Policies

Welcome

Ceramic items are low fire earthenware, stoneware, or porcelain. they are glazed with non-toxic lead free glazes and handpainted. All items are made from start to finish by hand. I painstakingly cast and sculpt the mold, then make the clay print and dried carefully for 2 weeks. Then it is carefully sanded before firing. All items go through at least two firings: the first bisque firing is 12 hours at 1940 degrees F and takes 2 days. The items are glazed and then fired again for 8 hours at 1818 degrees, and another 2 days. Please keep this in mind when ordering. I know I'm just as excited as you are to get the finished piece, but these things just cannot be rushed. All wet clay items require 8 weeks from my receipt of your molds to receive the finished ceramic. Please keep in mind that during the months of November,December,April, May, and June, our orders are unusually increased, and may affect the delivery of your plaque in a timely manner.

Payment

I accept Paypal or credit card. You do not have to have a PayPal account to use Paypal. If you want to pay by mail with a check or money order please contact me to do this. The items must be paid before work starts or mold kits are sent. No refunds or exchanges as these are personalized items. In the event of a kiln mishap, or human error, the item will be redone, and will take an additional 6-8 weeks to complete.

Shipping

I ship everywhere in the world. Please convo me with your address and I can estimate shipping for you, and add the shipping option necessary to purchase the item for international orders. .For United States orders, The purchase is shipped within 2 days, and you should receive your item 3 days after that. All items shipped USPS Priority shipping with delivery confirmation and tracking included. And insured up to $50 included. To save a trip to the post office, doorstep pickup available included in your purchase at http://www.usps.com/pickup.
All items sent First Class take up to 10 days and to not come with a tracking number or insurance unless requested for an additional price.
I am not responsible once the package leaves my hands. Please handle any problems with the usps.

Refunds and Exchanges

If for some reason the product is damaged in shipping, then take a picture of the broken item in it's original packaging (keep the packaging just in case) and fill out a breakage form on usps.com with the tracking number on the package. All packages are insured to $50 automatically if shipped priority. Additional shipping insurance is advised, and can be purchased by convo'ing me to add it to your order. Once the package leaves my hands, it is out of my jurisdiction and responsibility, and I am not liable for post office delays or breakage. Please purchase additional postal insurance if you are concerned this may happen.
As this is a handmade custom personalized item, in the event of kiln accidents such as cracks, breaks, glaze imperfections, ect..that I have NO control over whatsoever (we call them the Kiln Gods), then the item is re-done and sent asap, which can be 8 weeks later. This happens rarely, but does happen. Sorry, no refunds.
We are not responsible for monitor differences in color, and there are inherant fluctuations in glaze application, glaze saturation, (every kiln firing is different). Every child is also different, and every mold of each child is different, so there will be differences on how distinct the lines and creases are from child to child and mold to mold that I am not responsible for. One child may have super heavy lines and the next will have fairly smooth prints. They all vary. That is the amazing thing about them. Remember your prints are only as deep/good as the mold you send me! There are no refunds/exhanges/returns.

Additional Policies and FAQs

I am happy to do custom orders. Pieces are made by hand, and as such, aren't perfect, and have some inate flaws that add to the character of the piece. No two are alike. The artist also reserved the right to substitute font styles and sizes, or glaze colors or ribbon colors due to space limitations and availability. By your purchase, you acknowledge this. Please remember the long processing time required for this custom item.
