Do it Yourself kits have been
around for some time now, these companies
come and go. It is an option for those who do not have the opportunity
to visit a Ceramic Handprint Studio and have an experienced artist
take your child’s precious print for you.
We have heard
the same remark through the years: "We were
given a kit and we tried it Over and Over and it still did not
come out, and now our baby is bigger! Can you improve the impression
I took on it? Or can
you re-fire and make it looks like yours?"
Unfortunately the answer
is NO. Due to the unknown material used, we cannot take the
chance of anything being destroyed in our kiln.
Sadly some customers wait months for their purchased “Do
it Yourself kit” to arrive only to be disappointed because
the quality looks nothing like the advertised product.
our trainee’s many tries to perfect our technique before
we would allow them to even take an impression on a customer
who deserves the best! The impression is the most important part
of the plate after all that is why you’re doing it.
This is one of those times it’s worth making the trip to
an experienced Ceramic Handprint Studio and let them take the
impression for you.. We have many customers who travel a good
distance because they know how very special this moment is they
want us with over 15 years of experience to capture their child’s
infancy the best possible way and take the impressions for them.
Again impression is the most important
part of the ceramic plate.
As a mother of two teenage boys their precious ceramic prints
have become more precious with the passing of time, I am thankful
of the quality and display them proudly.
