Footprints and handprints

Footprints and handprints on pottery make great personalized gifts.  We also offer a free footprint tile for all new parents.  Just stop by with your new bundle of joy and we are happy to help you create a keepsake tile.

The process is easy. Here’s how we do it:

1: Get glazed

We’ll cover your child’s foot or hand with glaze in whatever color you’d like.

2: Make an impression

Then we carefully place your child’s hand or foot on the tile to get a perfect handprint or footprint.

3: Dry and decorate

The glaze from the footprint or handprint will be dry in just a few minutes, and then you can personalize the tile with other decorations.

4: Wait — and then enjoy!

Looking for a creative way to personalize a child’s bedroom or bathroom renovation? A ceramic tile with your child’s hand or footprint can add the perfect touch. And, of course, you can personalize other tiles for a kitchen or bathroom project using our traditional ceramic painting techniques.
