Fun Fact: We use the impressions you make to create a mold. This mold can be used to create as many keepsakes as you want for up to a year!

Hi! Thank you for visiting my Etsy Itty Bitty Prints Store! Let me share how I went from a career in corporate accounting and finance to being covered in clay everyday. It all started with our precious baby daughter, Carlee Claire. I desperately wanted to stay home with her. I also was needing an outlet for my artistic side that I wasn't getting in my career. I started Itty Bitty Prints in our guest bedroom with nothing more than a desire and a general idea. I practiced making keepsakes for friends, family and neighbors between Carlee's naps and feedings. Itty Bitty Prints slowly started to catch on. I never dreamed, that 14 years later, Itty Bitty Prints would grow into the thriving business it has. What a transformation of my daily life! Every morning I put my hair in a ponytail, put on a t-shirt, shorts & flip flops (obviously I never really embraced the stuffy corporate attire) and "commute to work!" My former daily 2.5 hour commute in heavy traffic has turned into 25 steps to my studio. I get such a blessing out of working with loving moms, darling babies and cute toddlers all day. I have the best customers in the world. They happily come back and see me with the birth of each new baby, and we design a keepsake with those tiny little hands and itty bitty feet. I live a dream!

I truly hope you can see the care and love I put in to every Itty Bitty Print. Each keepsake is thoughtfully designed by you and lovingly handcrafted by me. If you see something that you like in my store, wonderful! I will be happy to duplicate that keepsake for your child. Is your artistic side aching for a project? If so, let's discuss your design ideas for a one of a kind keepsake. No two Itty Bitty Prints are ever the same, just as no two children are the same!

Together, let's capture this moment in your child's life and make it last a lifetime!

    I am a 10 year old Malshipoo who stays in my mom's studio all day while she works. I keep her company and keep her feet warm by sitting on them :)

    I am a 1 year old Shetland Sheepdog puppy. I am always close to my mom or I make sure to always have my eyes on her wherever she is. That is why I am so good at my security position! I spend a lot of my day in my Mom's studio "helping" her.

Frequently asked questions
Why does it take 6-8 weeks to get my order?

The process that starts with a Play Doh impression and ends with a beautiful ceramic keepsake is a long one with many steps. The prints spend a lot of time air drying to prevent cracking. They are kiln fired twice at 2,000+ degrees; therefore, they spend a lot time cooling slowly too. All of the personalization, bow tying, packaging for secure shipping and mailing also takes time. It is a long process, but I know you will be able to see the care that went into the final product.

Can my keepsake say anything I want it to?

Pretty much! If it will physically fit on the front of the keepsake, I will be glad to include anything you wish. There may be an additional charge depending on the style chosen.

I am having a hard time getting a good print! Help!

Did you look over the instructions included in your Print Kit? Did you watch the helpful video in my store? Once in a while someone will struggle. It almost always involves very young babies or 2 year olds.

For the young babies: It always helps to have a helper. Let another adult, like Dad, hold the baby while you concentrate on the prints. I know I couldn't get prints without some help.

For toddlers: They simply don't appreciate the 30 second confinement. Enlist the help of an older sibling or the helper to distract them at the precise time you make their print. Works like a charm :)

You can also call me anytime for more tips and tricks. Together, we will get beautiful prints even if your kiddos aren't enthusiastic!

Should I put my twin's (or sibling's) prints on one piece or two separate pieces?

I get this question a lot. Short answer: It depends on your final plans for the piece(s).

If your goal is to give your children their keepsakes when they are grown, you have to put them on two separate pieces. You can't split a single piece later. If you plan to display the piece(s) in the children's bedroom, the children will probably be in separate bedrooms at some point, you would want to put them on two separate pieces.

If the goal is to keep them for your own enjoyment, one piece will be fine.

How long do I have to return the prints to you?

One year from the date of purchase.

According to Play Doh, Inc., their product has an "infinite shelf life if left sealed." Make your baby’s prints when you have the time and your helper is available. Please do them within 1 year.

If you are intending your prints to be Christmas gifts, you will need to follow the posted holiday deadlines. Mother's Day and Father's Day also have deadlines. I need 8 weeks to finish your keepsakes AFTER I receive your Play Doh prints.

I submitted my order, but I want to make a change! Can I? Is it too late?

If you make your change within a week of mailing it, there is a good chance you can. It also depends on what the change is--If you initially asked for the piece to read "Emily" and now you want it to read "Emily Ann", this would be a change that can be made easily. The personalization is done in the last stage of the process. If you want to change colors, that change needs to be made within the first 10 days to be safe. The color glazing happens in the second phase. If you want to make a change, just contact me. If it is possible given the point your keepsake is at in the process, I will be glad to do it for you. I want you to be happy with your keepsake. Sometimes that requires making changes. I promise that I am easy to work with

I made my purchase 18 months ago. We never got around to making the prints until now. Is it too late?

Yes, I’m afraid it is. You have one year from the date of your purchase to send me your play doh prints.

What do most people choose?

I am asked this question often. For girls, overwhelmingly the favorite color choice is pink. For boys, it is less clear cut. Various shades of blue are favored, but not overwhelmingly. When it comes to shape, currently square is the most popular choice. A few years ago, the most common choice was round. Tastes change, and so does Itty Bitty Prints!

Regarding style, for babies younger than 1 year, most people choose either a hand and foot style or one of the two hands and two feet styles.

My sister is having a baby. Do you offer gift certificates?

Yes! You will determine your budget for the gift, and we will work on a piece that fits within that budget. The recipient will be able to choose the shape, the personalization and the color. I will send a Print Kit to you (or directly to the recipient if we are short on time) that is suitable for wrapping. A lovely card that will announce your gift will be included.

Is it a problem if I let the Play Doh dry out?

Yes, it is. Once dry, the Play Doh almost always cracks severely. Even if it hasn't cracked yet, it will probably in shipment. I can't repair a crack that runs through the print. This is why I ask in the instructions for the Play Doh to be kept soft at all times.
