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.

This is a great product that takes the mess out of getting hand and foot prints for a baby book. It's a little difficult with a squirmy baby though!

          I'm glad that the product don't have to be on the babies feet or hands....however, once you use it once you cannot continue to use it over again....I wish I could have used it twice...the ink gets lighter and lighter

              I bought this to freeze time. I wanted to get a good print of my sons hands and feet. Because this item is called an ink PAD I assumed it was like a regular ink pad that can be used multiple times. However, upon opening the box, it's basicaly a onetime use sheet of ink. The products name should be mess free ink sheet. One time use only. (At most 3 times use) after every print the ink gets less and less making future prints uneven.
