imprinted in clay

Call us at 528-1360 to book a private appointment, we’ll imprint your child’s footprints and handprints in clay and create a beautiful keepsake for Moms, Dads, and Grandparents. Two weeks after your appointment, you can return to decorate your piece (no reservation needed this time) and we’ll give you all the assistance you need with decorating ideas and techniques. Your finished piece will be ready to pick up a week later. Alternatively, we can decorate the piece for you for a $15 surcharge so you don’t have to come back for a second visit—just come back to pick it up! Imprint prices include two studio visits, additional pieces are 25% off.

...and on pottery

Using special ceramic ink, we’ll help you put your child’s footprints and handprints onto beautiful pottery such as mugs, picture frames, and tiles. We have hundreds of shapes from which to choose, a rainbow array of colors, decorating tools, and all the creative assistance you need! No reservations required, just drop in for our studio fee plus the price of the pottery you paint. Your finished work will be ready to pick up in a week.
