How can I purchase a Prints in Clay ceramic impression?
Prints in Clay is a home-based business located in Celina, TX and serves the Dallas/Ft. Worth and surrounding area. Impressions are done by appointment only, and can be made by calling Jamie at 469-271-5514 or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are your products safe for infants or children?
Yes, absolutely! I use a very soft organic, non-toxic, high quality, local clay that is safe for your child's hands and feet.
How long can I expect our appointment to be?
Appointments last between 15 to 20 minutes for a single child impression. For multiple children, please expect to be here between 30 to 45 minutes. The lengthiest part of your appointment is selecting your plate design, choosing the color for your impressions and then selecting your font options. The impressions themselves are only a few quick minutes. Once payment is made and impressions are captured, your appointment is completed. Please allow additional time for multiple orders and/or siblings.
What should we expect during our visit?
After selecting your pieces in my studio, and filling out your order form, we will then start the imprint process. I know how important it is to keep germs at bay, before we begin I sterilize my hands with a hand sanitizer. I will ask that you hold your little one securely while I carefully and gently press your child's prints into the prepared clay. In just a quick moment we will have created a detailed impression of their hands and feet. When finished, I offer fragrance-free wipes to clean your baby's hands and feet and remove any remaining clay residue.
When should I receive my child's impressions back?
Due to the great care and time I put into each ceramic impression, orders will take approximately 4 to 6 weeks to complete. During the busy holiday season, it may take an additional 2 weeks to fulfill orders. Once your plate is ready, I will contact you to arrange a studio porch pick-up. Please know I am not responsible for any damage to plates beyond 48 hours of messaged pickup time.
Will my impressions look exactly the same as the samples?
Each plate is unique. Please know that I put many laboring hours of love into each piece. I take great pride and care in my work, spending extra time to ensure that what you see in my studio is the same as what you take home. However, each plate is hand cut & sculpted, hand painted, uniquely crafted and truly an art that's one of a kind - just like the sweet prints themselves. Some glaze colors may have slight variances to them, being lighter or darker in shade than the sample shows. Some plates may vary in design as a result of being adjusted to accommodate your child's prints.
What if the impression is damaged during production?
Ceramic is very delicate, and sometimes unpredictable. In the rare and unfortunate event that your impression has an imperfection caused by clay or glaze variances, kiln misfires or breakage, I will notify you right away and fix or replace it at no additional fee to you. I know how fast your little one grows, and I want to be sure to capture the reprint as early as possible.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, checks, or Zelle. I also use Venmo, or Square for payments on all major credit cards for a small additional service fee. Payment is due at the time of your appointment. Please know tax will be included on your final total.
