Have your baby's handprint or footprint imprinted onto a piece of silver jewellery


From a clear, good quality photocopy of your baby's handprint or footprint, Smallprint can produce a silver pendant in a variety of different shapes with an exact impression of your baby's handprint or footprint on it. Your baby's name can also be engraved on it if you wish.

"I cried when I opened the parcel with the necklace from Smallprint. To be able to wear my baby's handprint round my neck each day is the most amazing, special feeling. In a strange way, I feel she is very close when I am wearing my necklace"
