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:

      The ink pad packaging said I could take my babies prints and if I was dissatisfied just try again. Wrong. I did a test foot print, and after the first foot print all the ink was pretty much gone. I tried a hand print after that and it came out very faded with no detail. There's no way you could do more than one print. Also the film they use to seperate ink from babies skin distorts the print somewhat... I purchased this to get both hads and both feet prints into her baby book...there's no way. Its pretty much just good for ONE print, so if you mess up, you have to buy a new pad. I ended up just using non toxic craft paint and got all the prints I wanted with much greater detail. Dont waste your money. Will be returning

      We made foot print of new baby girl and it came out awesome. Hand print was a little harder to get only because baby kept moving her fingers.

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

            Bought this hoping to make it easy to put my sons prints in his new baby book. I would rather have had the hassle of a "real ink pad" and having to clean up the mess from that. First off the package does not tell you how many uses you get from it and it's really only like one for the $5 cost. You make the first print and almost all the ink is used and it's way too much! You are left with one big inky blob of a mess not on your child's foot or hand but all over the paper! The ink is so wet and heavy and it doesn't dry and smudges everywhere.You can try and use again but the ink is uneven and spotty. So disappointed with this:(

            This was the second time to use this product. First time was for baby's hand and foot print for her 1st month. The foot print worked fine, but hand print didn't go well... When we pushed her hand on the screen, she moved the fingers...
            This time, I used it for the hand print for father's day. Now she is 8 month old. She kept hand still, but ink was smeared on the card between fingers. I couldn't make clean hand print...

                            This made getting a good handprint and footprint so much easier and less mess that a standard inkpad. My only complaint would be to make the backing a harder surface to push the hand or foot onto.
