Love Prints Personalised Keepsakes - Prints on Pottery
Perfect for prints
We have so many different pottery pieces suitable for hand and footprints. We can take prints on functional pieces like mugs, plates, bowls, jugs, vases etc. or decorative pieces like plaques, tiles, photo frames and decorations. We have such a wide range of different sized pottery pieces we can accommodate anything from a single footprint, right up to handprints of the whole family.
You can rest assured that the safety of our customers and staff is top priority. We always take prints with clean and freshly sanitised hands and PPE will be worn to ensure the safety of you and your little ones. The underglaze colours we use are water based and non-toxic so super safe for little hands and feet. And we always have a baby wipe on hand for a quick clean up once the prints have been taken.
Taking the prints
Capturing the perfect prints can be tricky but with so many years experience we've had lots of practice! Hand and footprints can be taken at any age although it can be trickier to get good quality painted handprints with babies as they tend to curl their fingers when they feel the paint. Because of this we usually recommend footprints where possible for babies under one although we’ll always give it a go. We are often asked to capture prints from your furbabies too and as animal lovers we're always happy to help.
What happens next
You may have painted your pottery with a pale coloured background before the prints were taken or you may decide to decorate around the prints once they are safely on the pottery - spots or patterns around the edge are popular. Or why not turn your prints into a cheeky monkey, elephant or other animal. If you’d prefer, we can complete the art work for you, once the prints have been taken, for a small charge. Equally effective is keeping it simple by just adding a name and age and letting the prints shine.
