How to Create a Fingerprint Keepsake

Create a lasting impression with a fingerprint keepsake. Watch our tutorial to see how to create a fingerprint keepsake by following our simple steps to capture the most detail in your print. All you need is a pencil, piece of blank paper, and tape.

These keepsakes are great pieces for a mom, grandma, father, or anyone to keep a special piece with them always. This is a special way to show someone that they have left an imprint on your heart.

If you don't want to create a new print, you can always send in a memorial print you already have. It's important to be able to send in the best photo you possibly can with the print in focus and in good lighting in order for us to create the best engraving possible.

With our custom tracing process, we are able to capture all the lines and rings that make your fingerprint special. You don't have to worry about a complicated mold, mail it to us, or a long turnaround time. We have a unique process to get an accurate deep engraving of your print.

How to Create Your Fingerprint

  1. Use a pencil to darken about a 1 inch square section on a piece of white paper.
  2. Rub one fingertip across the graphite-covered section of paper.
  3. Stick a piece of clear tape onto darkened finger (packing tape works very well)
  4. Remove the tape from your fingertip and stick the tape onto the piece of white paper.
  5. Take a picture of your fingerprint and upload it. Make sure the fingerprint is in focus in order to engrave the full detail of the print.

    *You may use an ink pad to make your fingerprint as well.
