Frequently Asked Questions
I have four children and would love to have each of their hands in the one frame with a photo, is this possible?
I never had my sons impressions taken and I am worried now that he has turned one that he is too old?
We are not limited by age when taking impressions, whilst he has obviously grown in the last twelve months, when you look back at the impressions in ten or twenty years time you will be glad that you chose to have that special keepsake displayed proudly on the wall.
We do recommend not taking the feet moulds after the age of two approximately but it is really dependent on the size of the child as they maybe a small size child, speak with you local franchisee who is trained in providing advice such as this, possibly we could take the impression of the feet and consult you prior to framing.
There are some lovely options such as one hand or one foot or just the two hands framed together which are a lovely alternative and still enable you to capture those special memories, please view our keepsake section for further details or speak with your local Impressionable Kids franchisee.

Who supplies the photo?
We are great framers but not so great photographers so we need you to supply the photo. If you don't want to take a photo yourself we are more then happy to refer you to one of the professional photographers we recomend. We prefer either a 6"x 4" or a 5"x 7" size photo, if however you have a different size then please talk to us about resizing your frame to suit.
When can I expect the finished frame?
Do you have gift vouchers?
Do you sell a kit so I can do it myself ?
No, Impressionable Kids do not sell or recommend "do it yourself" kits as the processes involved in taking an impression takes hours of training. The chances of you obtaining a successful impression on your first or second or even third attempt is extremely slim.
The quality of the materials in kits is unknown; therefore, even if you manage to get a good impression you do not know if it will stand the test of time or turn to dust.
A comparison between our prices & the cost of a kit are minimal and the kit does not include framing or engraved plaque.
Over the years we have had many calls from distressed customers who have tried using a kit unsucessfully.
