    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:

        I wish I would have read the reviews before I bought this! It is a total waste of money. All we got was a black blob of ink after putting our daughter's hand on the "ink pad". Thankfully my husband suggested trying this thing out on a piece of paper first instead of our baby book - the page of the book would've been ruined. We ended up running out to an office supply store and getting an ink pad from there. DO NOT BUY THIS!

          Great idea since baby skin will not touch ink but too small to actually fit baby's foot or hand. And my baby is only 4 months old! A bigger ink pad would work much better

              After multiple attempts to capture my 8 week olds handprints with the typical ink and paper method, I stumbled across this product at the store an though it was worth a shot! Not only was it difficult to put enough pressure on the product to get a print, the print it produces is not good quality, it almost looks like a big ink blob with no detail to the lines and smaller features of my babies hand. I got a better print with an ink pad and fussiness of my baby then this product... Waste of money :-(

                    When using this product it did not come with an instruction manual...the instructions were on the back of the box. It was not clear to me what side to use so I had to guess what side the ink was on based on the pics on the box. By the time I realized my newborn daughter had ink everywhere, it was too late. We had used the wrong side and realized there was a sticker with stop in small letters. We were able to wash off the ink on her hands but it was tough to get out of her nails aND her onsie. I suggest getting 2 if you want to do hands and feet. They say you can make more than one print but it's uneven second round. This is not an ink pad..looks more like shrink wrap with ink wiped on it.
