How to order & take prints
All of our pieces of personalised jewellery are made by using the true handprint, fingerprint, footprint or paw print of your loved ones. You can either email or post us a copy of your existing prints, or you can take new prints using our special printing kits (posted free with every order). Taking the prints using our ink-less kits is fun, easy and the most exciting part of the process! People often worry that they won't be able to take a good enough print of a young baby or boisterous dog, but it's very rare that we receive prints we cannot use. There really is no mess, no ink and no putty and you will be amazed how quick and easy it is! The kits use natural oils that are safe to use on children of all ages, including pets and newborn babies.
We make two different types of Handprint Jewellery - Handcrafted and Engraved.
- Handcrafted Jewellery is made from sterling silver and has the impressions cast deep into the metal - the prints are then deepened in colour to bring out the detail.
- Engraved Jewellery has the prints etched onto the surface of the charm and provides a more subtle look. The difference between the two types of Jewellery is shown above.

In the pack you will find a ‘magic wipe’ which is coated with a natural oil. Simply wipe over the palm, foot or paw, then press gently onto the printing card included in the pack. As if by magic, you will see a lovely dark print appear on the card! The card is A4 size, so you will have plenty of room to take a few prints for us to choose from - don’t worry too much if you get a few smudges, we can easily clean these up in the studio. Give the hand, foot or paw a quick wash to remove any excess oil and you're all done!
Return your prints to us by taking a photo/scanning and emailing them to the studio: email@example.com. Alternatively, you can return your prints by posting them to the following address: Hand on Heart Jewellery Ltd, Hackthorpe Hall Business Centre, The North Range, Unit 1, Hackthorpe, Penrith, CA10 2HX
We love seeing happy customers return to us again and again! We keep your print impressions for two years after you've placed your initial order with us, so we can use these if you wish to order again. If we already hold prints on file for you, select the option ‘you already have my prints from a previous order’ when ordering. We can then get straight to work on your order without you having to re-take the prints!
How do you know who's print is who's?
There is a form on the back of each printing kit, which you are requested to fill in with each child or pet's name.
