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.

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

      We purchased this product with hopes of capturing hand prints for the baby book.
      Our babe is 11 weeks and does tend to move around a bit so we did them during feeding. The small square made it hard to maneuver to get the right angle. The first print came out VERY smeared. The second one we used the wrong side (eek), but the ink was easy enough to wash off. The third print there really wasn't enough ink.

      It didn't work for us but I could see it working with a babe a little older if the ink pad provided was larger. Also I wish they would have had the ink side cardboard in all red...lol sleep deprived parents did not see it all that well.

                  Doesn't come with clear directions on which is the ink side and which is the side is safe to touch. You can't press too hard and it's only one time use cause it doesn't look good after a second time.

                  Packaging is misleading

                        The packaging says "add baby's prints" but there's no way you will get more than one print. I wanted a hand and a footprint for our baby's scrapbook but this is a one-time only ink pad. If I'd known this, I would have bought two! However the quality was poor anyway and there was a big crack in the middle of the ink pad. When we got a footprint of my son, the same line now appears in our scrapbook. I had a much better quality ink pad set (that came with two pads!) when I did hand/footprints for my daughter 3 years ago. I would not use the cheap Babies R Us brand again.

                            If you read the box, it makes it sound like you can use it more than once. We found that it isn't possible especially with an infant.

                                  I bought this product to add handprints and footprints of my newborn into her baby book. I loved how easy it was, I did it while my baby girl was sleeping and the prints turned out better than I thought they would. Awesome way to create a keepsake without all the mess that it would normally entail
