Q: How long will it take to receive an inkless print kit?
A: As soon as we receive your order we aim to send your inkless print kit within 3 working days.
Q: How does the inkless print kit work? Is it difficult to use?
A: It is really simple. All you do is simply rub the wipe over the hands and/or feet and place onto the special paper provided. This will produce a clear hand/footprint. There will be more precise instructions included in the print kit.
Q: Is the print kit safe?
A: The procedure was developed in the USA, and is used in maternity wards to identify new born babies. It is non-toxic and completely safe.
Q: What if the prints I take are not satisfactory?
A: Make several prints all over the A4 paper. If necessary we can 'clean up' of the prints before using them. The majority of prints can be used. In the worst case, we may have to ask you to re-take the prints.
Q: Can prints be taken from anyone?
A: Yes, we can use prints from anyone of any age or species - don't forget your pets!
Q: Is it possible to have prints on both sides?
A: Yes, this is available with many designs, where indicated.
Q: Is there a limit to the amount of letters or prints I can have on my chosen piece?
A: Generally it is not a problem. If we feel the name you require will not fit onto your chosen piece, then we will contact you to discuss other possibilities. For example, it can be written on the back or on a separate tag.
Q: Is it possible to re-order using the same prints?
A: Yes. Your prints will be kept on file for 12 months. Up until then you can place additional orders at any time.

Q: If the jewellery is silver or gold, why are some of them not hallmarked?
Under current legislation, silver items that weigh less than 7.78 grams and gold items weighing less than 1 gram do not need to be hallmarked.also. On the pieces with 'Bonded gold' on silver they can be hallmarked with a full silver hallmark only. Should you require your piece to be hallmarked we can do so upon request, for an additional charge. All non-print parts (cufflink backs, key rings, chains, tops etc) are 925 sterling silver or gold whilst all the hand and foot print parts is 999 fine silver.
