let’s get together…
Check out our schedule to see a listing of our host stores and days and times we will be there. No appointment is necessary if you like to meet us at one of the host stores. We are also available by appointment at our studio in Scripps Ranch.
When we meet, you’ll pick the style of the plate you would like, as well as the color and the inscription. Don’t worry, we have lots and lots of samples for you to choose from. With over 30 colors and oodles of styles to choose from, this is usually the hardest part!
taking the impressions…
It’s not hard, we promise! Once you’ve picked all your options, we’ll take the impression of your little one. We use a soft, non-toxic clay that is made specifically for us. Unlike some of the do it yourself kits you may have tried, our clay is not messy, and will simply wipe or wash off. Also, because it is kiln-fired you will have a piece of art work that will last.
There is no special preparation necessary for the stamping. We do like to remind parents that if you are planning on taking impressions of your children’s feet, you might want to dress them in an outfit that we can get to their feet easily. Also, don’t worry if you little one likes to keep their hands clenched. By coming to us, you are ensured of getting a good print from even the tiniest of hands
The stamping process is pretty quick, and we generally need only about 10 minutes of your time…pretty simple huh?
Payment options – cash, check, Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
Our orders normally take 4 weeks to complete. Once we take the impressions, your order stays with us from start to finish. It is never sent out for completion. We spend a lot of time on the production of your plate and making sure it is just right. We put the time into it, so you have a great finished piece.
Please allow an extra week during peak holidays – Christmas, Hanukkah and Mother’s Day.
Generally orders are returned to the location where the impression was taken. We can also deliver your order to any of our other host stores or our Scripps Ranch studio. Shipping is available for an extra fee.
