I specifically packed our baby book into our hospital bag get those tiny prints only to discover that our hospital stopped doing prints altogether.

This product allowed me to complete that page in my book. It was not messy as expected. Warning: getting prints is harder than you might think. The prints are a little blurry, because you cannot control the amount of ink on the page and it smears easily.

Best way to capture prints is to bring smaller paper to baby's hands/feet with small book underneath for support, then insert sheet onto baby book page instead of placing pad directly on baby book.

Price is reasonable- I captured all four prints with single kit. If you are a perfectionist, consider buying more than one kit so you can have multiple attempts and know going into this project that you still probably will not get perfect prints. Make sure to allow plenty of drying time, would definitely recommend.

I bought this package hoping to make some great visual memories of my daughter's hands and two feet. However, inside the box there was only one ink pad...is that normal? Right off the bat when I was in the store I didn't see any tampering (I checked), plus I couldn't see anything written ON the box stating what was inside (e.g. Two ink pads). I have no idea what to expect. When I got home I was further dismayed to find out that the vague instructions printed on the outside of the box are all that the consumer is given. For instance, if you mess up and need to re-do, what do they mean about just remove the paper and start over? What paper? Paper I supplied or is the pad loaded with enough ink so mess ups can be magically redone when I lift the pad from my project (in this case, her baby book so...no mess ups allowed)? I had no idea what to expect and quickly found out after I made an imprint of her right foot, which did look nice. Her right hand turned out to be this blob, which I kind of expected but had hoped I could re-do, and her left foot was barely visible because the ink was already running out of the pad.

If this product was going to be truly worth the price I would suggest more ink pads in the package (one for each hand and foot) with clearer instructions. I am now stuck with the blob in my baby's book and a barely there left foot imprint. I didn't bother with trying to imprint her left hand because there was no more ink left on the pad. At least the box came through on one package promise: your baby's skin never touches the ink.

          It seems great till you remove their hands or feet then it smears. No matter what you do. An there's no much ink so if you mess up there's no redoing it. I dont know how everyone else's babies are but ours is laid back an it was difficult to do it but the ink is of very poor quality. I couldn't imagine attempting on a more upbeat child.

            The product is convenient but does not state that the product is for one use, we tested the inkpad before using only to find that the pad is one use only. Wasted my money, and would have felt differently if the instructions would have stated the one use, but they said we could use and try again if needed.

              Comments about C.R. Gibson Mess Free Ink Pad:

              This is a great ink pad option for your tiny ones! I'm not sure if the package gives an age range, but my little girl is just over 5 months, and her hand is too big to fit the area of the pad. I love that it's mess free, though (assuming you place it ink side down, which I didn't do on one....oops). This is ideal for newborns up to about 4 months, I'd say, and it's DEFINITELY a two-man job! Although you place the pad directly on the surface you're printing (baby book, ornament, canvas - that was me), you really need a second set of hands (or tape) to hold the pad down while you try to straighten fingers or toes so it doesn't smudge. It's also easier to have the pad secured when you try to lift baby's hand or foot. Otherwise you run the risk of smudging again. This is meant to be a single-use product, but I found that, if I had my target spots ready to go, I could get 3 decent prints out of a single package (with decreasing darkness, obviously).

              Comments about C.R. Gibson Mess Free Ink Pad:

              I love that this pad truly is mess free - no ink will get on your child's hands or feet. However, while I didn't realize this when my daughter was a newborn, the pad is kind of small, and once the kids get to be 1 year old, it is almost too small to use for a hand print, and her whole foot doesn't fit on it anymore. I'd like for them to release a larger mess-free pad to use. Make sure you don't press too hard, as it tends to press more than what you want onto the paper (to get a mitten look, rather than individual fingers).

                I've been purchasing this ink pad each month for the past three months, since my LO was born. It's super easy and fast to use, and there's no mess to clean up afterwards (no ink gets on baby's foot). It works very well and I plan on continuing to buy one every month until she's 1yr old, then twice a year after that (until her foot is too big).
