The Baby Handprint Company Creates Lasting Keepsakes of your Baby to Love Forever!!
Hello! My name is Debbie and I create lasting childhood memory prints. I am married to my wonderful husband and we have two precious daughters who are my inspiration. I have worked with ceramic clay, since I was introduced as a child in Girl Scouts, then again in H.S and University. The Baby Handprint Company was born after my two babies were very young and I wanted to find a special way to hold on to their cherished hand and footprints forever. I began creating handprint impressions and pop out handprints in my ceramic studio before sending out to Moms all over. I began sending Handprint mold kits out on etsy to offer mothers all over the world wonderful cherished memories that I have enjoyed myself.
Preserving your baby's hand and footprints is a wonderful way to make time stand still. It is amazing to see the change in size of a baby's hand or foot as they grow. It will be wonderful to look back for many generation's to come. Ceramic clay hand and footprints make wonderful gifts for Baby Shower's, Birthdays and Holiday's for family and friends.
The Baby Handprint Company is a passion for the love of family and the cherished bond we have with our children. I have combined my two passions in life, Children and Art.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Each listing can be customized to your liking. Choose colors you will find in listing pictures. I have most popular colors listed in my picture of heart chart and if you still like more options there are more colors to choose from. You have writing options to etch or stamp. I can paint on if you prefer too. You may want to match a plaque or ornament you have done in past so all you need to do is show me your past work. I will do my best to match it. Many of my plaques can come with a border if you like and I will send out paper with border options and writing options. if you have a new idea for plaque , ornament or border let me know and we can work on it together.

Shipping includes sending out mold and the final piece to you. You are responsible to send back mold to me. Care instructions
I prepare and make your kit 1 - 3 days and I send out kit first class that will take 3 -4 days. I work from order form you fill out and return with mold. The date I receive is the beginning of the time frame of the approximately 8 weeks until I return your finished work. many ask about rush orders, but unfortunately it is impossible to rush. Ceramic clay has to naturally dry on it's own or it can crack. I create pieces in bulk to kiln fire so it takes more time. As Holidays get busy length of time shipping mold and final piece can be delayed
This is for parents who's child fall outside the growth norm and are either smaller or larger on growth chart. Your child may be 7 - 8 months and still fit a 6 month ornament if your child is in the 25% of growth chart or just the opposite is true and your child is in the 90% in growth and is 6 months, he or she may have larger measurements than the ornament. if you are wanting a hand and footprint plaque please trace hand and foot next to each other and measure the total outside width and length. In main listings I have measurements of plaques to give you size.
Can I order more from my same mold later?
Yes you can. What is great is the mold only gets better and harder over time. I hold onto your mold for 1 year. I have a high rate of re orders from customers after they have ordered their first plaque or ornaments. Many give as gifts to grandparents.
About mold kit
Order form, directions, wax paper, Non toxic easy soft mold to use . Mold will keep for a long time if left unopen. Once opened you will need to use, but you can still package back up well to last longer if needed. If ever sticky it has become to warm/soft you will need to leave it alone and check on it until it cools down. If feels hard just knead to soften. Non toxic material that will need time to dry before sending back. Should feel like a hard sponge and you should not be able to stick a finger into and leave a mark anymore. Please do not package back up into plastic baggie it will tend to soften and not continue to dry.
I have a mold discount. I discount on multiple orders when using the same mold. This is the only discount I have because my pricing is one of the best you will find online.
These custom orders take a lot of time Why?
Yes I know and how and I wish I could speed up the process. The main reason is the drying time the clay has to go through. All clay has to dry completely and this takes time, otherwise there will be breakage in kiln. Also I am working on not just a few pieces, but many to be fired in a kiln not once but twice. Each pieces need to be cleaned before a kiln firing and then cooled down after kiln before they can even come out. Then I individual paint and detail each ornament / keepsake plaque to get ready for the final glaze firing. Finally the last touches of ribbon, writing and packaging of each special keepsake before it makes it's way to you.
