Little feet, big inspiration . . .

Hi, my name is Kathryn Garhartt. I am the owner and artist behind pitter.patter.print, a collection of baby footprint art prints.

pitter.patter.print started off as a small collection in my Etsy shop RedWallStudio. I had intended on working part time, focusing on my charcoal drawings and personal artwork while I stayed home to take care of my newborn son. I opened the shop in February of 2012. That was also right around the time I used my son's baby footprints stamped from the hospital to create Valentines for our family members. Everyone loved them, so I decided to add them to my shop.

Over the next few months those little footprint hearts quickly started to take on a life of their own. Not only did my customers adore them, but my creative wheels went into overdrive. First it was a butterfly, then a bee, then cascades of butterflies and bees, then an elephant, then a woodland collection, then a nautical collection and so on and so on. Those little feet were such a big inspiration to me. So big, that I realized they needed their own space to grow, so I decided to give them their own Etsy shop. Fast forward four years, and pitter.patter.print is a full time endeavor with over 400 footprint & handprint art designs and 5,000 + sales.

My five year old, was my original muse and he continues to inspire me daily. He is also my biggest critic, and will tell me right away during the design phase of a new product if an owl looks like a flamingo, or a balloon looks like a banana. So I can safely say that even though the nursery art prints can be somewhat abstract, I work on them until they are kid approved! The arrival of my second son has sparked ideas for an entire line of sibling art prints.

I am thankful every day for the opportunity to work from home while raising my boys. I know these years are precious and few. I’m very blessed to be around for the big moments, the small everyday moments, the tears and the laughter, all while being my own boss and fostering the part of my soul that NEEDS to be creative. Some days it’s a struggle juggling both roles, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I am happy to match nursery colors, bedding and work on custom designs. I also offer printed sample color sheets to ensure that the colors you are requesting will match the nursery or room they will be placed in.

If you have any questions about my process, products or how to place an order please feel free to contact me.

Frequently asked questions

1. How does this work?

1. Place the item(s) into your cart and proceed to checkout. Be sure to select the option "Use custom" if you are a 1st time customer & wish to use your child's foot/hand prints on the product.

2. Then you email or message me through Etsy, the foot/hand print image. See below for specific instructions about how to obtain/send.

3. Upon receipt of both the Etsy order and foot/hand prints I will send you a reply email or message with your proof date. This time frame varies from 2-3 days up to 3 weeks depending upon the time of year. Current turnaround times can be found in the first sentence of every listing. Once the proof is approved, I print and ship your order.

2. What is the difference between USE CUSTOM, CUSTOM ON FILE and USE STOCK?

USE CUSTOM = You would like to use your baby's, child's or an adult's foot/hand prints. These are custom imprints YOU provide. There is one time fee to have each foot and/or handprint converted into a digital illustration. Once on file, they can be used over and over again for future purchases.

CUSTOM ON FILE = Foot/hand prints have already been converted to a digital image & are already on file from a prior order. If purchasing multiple items using the same set of hands/feet in the SAME TRANSACTION you can also select "Custom on file" for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th (etc) item purchased since the cost will be included in the first item.

USE STOCK = The foot/hand prints used in the listing photo will be used. These are not your child's prints.

3. How do I obtain my child’s hand/foot prints?

You can use the hospital stamped foot/hand prints taken as a courtesy. I am able to digitally remove any smudges, smears, overlapping images or other blemishes.

OR can take them yourself. A stamp pad or paint will produce the best results. Any color paint, stamp or paper is fine.

I will gladly edit obvious blemishes, but the overall shape of the foot/hand print you send me, will be the shape of the foot/hand print that you receive back. I will use the footprint that was taken as best I can, without any additional edits to what the footprint "should" look like. (ie. if the toes are uneven, your print will have uneven toes. This makes every art print just as unique and beautiful as the child it came from!

4. How do I send you my child’s hand/foot prints?

1) For best results please scan at 300 dpi the stamped foot/hand prints & email to kathryn@pitterpatterprint.com or Etsy msg me a PDF doc.

2) Or you can email me a photo (camera or smart phone) of the stamped print(s). Please be sure to take a picture of the entire sheet of paper the prints are on. This way, I can determine the dimensions based on the paper size. If you send a close up please include the length from second toe to heel at checkout

3) OR you can mail them. Once your order has processed I will contact you with my mailing address. Please mail a photocopy of the document. I am not responsible for lost or damaged original documents.

I will confirm receipt within 2-36 hrs & let you know when you will receive your proof.

5. How does your proof/production schedule work?

Your order will only be scheduled to be made once I have received BOTH the Etsy order & foot/hand print file(s). Purchasing a product will not hold you a spot on my schedule. Turnaround time & estimated ship dates are subject to the day I receive ALL information. This is for organizational reasons, as some customers wait weeks or months to send prints.
Turnaround time for proofs is based upon the 1st available date I can schedule your order to be made. If my turnaround time states 5-7 days, it physically does not take me 5-7 days to make your design and send you a proof. It means there will be 5-7 days BEFORE I can start working on your order, as I have orders to work on for 5-7 days prior where all information was received prior to yours.

6. It’s the night you told me I would receive my proof. Its 11pm and I haven’t received it yet. What should I do?

I typically respond to emails and confirm orders at various times throughout the day, but create the prints between 7:00pm - 1:00am EST, M-F. Please understand that when I quote you a time of Thursday night, I mean night or possibly early morning. I work on every order in the order received, meaning if your order was the last that I accepted to be worked on that night, you many not receive your proof until 3am. Respectfully, emailing me constantly to inquire about the status of your proof only delays the process for everyone, as I have to stop what I am doing to respond. I thank you in advance for respecting this. If the next morning you haven't received it, please do contact me. On occasion, emails get stuck in my outbox or go to spam.

7. How long do I have to send you the hand/foot prints and approve the proof?

If I have not received your child's footprints within 60 days of your order, and we have not made arrangements, your order will be cancelled. All coupons and promotions will be void. I will make attempts to contact you regarding this via Etsy Conversations. Please understand that it is your responsibility to send me the footprints. It is not practical for me to send you email after email reminding you to send them. If you are purchasing as a gift PLEASE PURCHASE A GIFT CARD or mark your order as REGISTRY. If you have not approved your proof within 30 days, I reserve the right to send you your print without proof approval. All changes or errors will be the responsibility of the buyer.

8. When & how will my order ship?

All prints require proof approval prior to shipping. Generally speaking, orders ship within 1-2 days of proof approval.

Etsy's "Scheduled to Ship By" Dates are ONLY applicable if foot/hand prints are sent the same day as the placed order. If they are sent after the day the order is placed then the "Ship By" date is determined by the turnaround time on the day the foot/hand prints are received.

All US orders will be send via First Class or Priority and receive a tracking number.

All International orders will be mailed via First Class Mail and also receive “courtesy” tracking (ie. They don’t HAVE to scan it for updates but typically do).

9. What happens if my print arrives damaged or not at all? What if the information is incorrect?

Orders typically arrive without a hitch & in perfect condition. However, if your order arrives damaged, (ie. bent in half to fit in your mailbox), please contact me. I purchase insurance on every shipment and can file a claim. Please email me a photo of the damaged product & shipping package that I can submit to USPS and I will replace your order immediately.

All orders receive tracking. If your order has not had an update or moved location in over 48 hours I am happy to look into the issue for you.

All orders require proof approval prior to shipping. Once a proof has been approved, I am not responsible for errors. Unless, what you receive differs from the proof. If you notice an error after approval, please contact me.

10. Can you explain to me your Copyright Polices?

Buying my work does not transfer Copyright. All products, imagery and wording are Copyrighted by pitter.patter.print By Kathryn Therese. Unlawful reproduction will incur all legal ramifications and penalties. I take my intellectual property very seriously. Just because something is posted on Pinterest does not mean that it is not protected by copyright laws. Please understand that all designs, layouts, color placement and style are my intellectual property. Please consider this before copying & pasting my listing information, shop information & replicating my designs. It is not only unfair, but illegal, to duplicate art, call it your own and attempt to sell it. I thank you for respecting this & encourage you to foster your own creativity.
