Baby and Children Hand and Foot Prints
Don't forget how small your special little person was. Here on The Mug Tug we offer a wide range of options for capturing your children's handprints and footprints for eternity in a special keepsake. Our experienced staff can create a treasured memento for you to keep and/or as a gift for Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Godparents, Christmas and Christenings etc.
With footprints available from birth onwards and handprints from about 6 weeks onwards we can paint your baby or child’s prints in a variety of options with colours and styles to coordinate with your taste.
Painted prints on ceramic items
If the bisque is big enough we can put a print on it, so no problem whether flat or round!
And with our special technique we can get a handprint or footprint for your little one, no matter how small they are or how curled their fist. Our non-toxic, water soluble paint is safe to use and washes off really easily. We take the hand or foot print for you. We write names and ages on all pieces so you never forget, we can even add birth details (date, time, weight, place) if you wish, either on show or hidden underneath. A personal message also makes it a very special gift.
Our every popular 'Hug on a Mug' is a sure fire winner if you're looking for a special Gift for Mummy, Daddy, Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie, Uncle, Godparents....or anyone. We can also turn their prints into Owls, Butterflies or Flowers or many other pictures. The must have gift at Christmas and Mother's Day is one of our Vases.

5. Leave the rest to Us
During your Appointment with us, we will take your Little Ones hand and foot prints and go through your design requests to ensure we make your piece exactly as you would like it to be. You then leave that with us to Personalise. We do charge an additional small Personalisation Fee to cover our time to do this. Prices are shown in the table below.
If you would like to personalise the items yourself you are very welcome to do so. However, currently in Covid-19 Government Guidelines, we are unable to allow you to finish items in the Studio, but we can pack it for you with a Takeaway Kit for you to finish at Home, please let us know before your appointment if you would like to do this, so we have the equipment you need ready for you.
