These are actual noseprints of your pet – perfect for any animal lover and a beautiful keepsake of your special friend.
We make them from silicon moulds – the kit will be sent to you and will take only seconds to capture the little nose impression of your dog or cat. The examples shown are of my own shih tsu puppies, so are small, but larger breeds can also be done – please select the size of your dog from the dropdown menus, as appropriate.
So – how does this work?
When you have placed your order and it is received in our studio, we will mail out our special print-taking kit. You should receive this in a few days and be able to take the noseprint of your pet. Return this to us with your paperwork, checking carefully any personalisation that you may want on the back of the pendant eg name and date. We will then take 2-4 weeks to make up your piece and mail it to you – sometimes this may be quicker, but it does depend on how busy we are.
It is very easy to take the print – it should take seconds – you will receive a kit used to take fingerprints and the process is exactly the same. Your pet should not be stressed by this process at all – you mix the putty and then offer it to their nose to get the print and then remove straightaway ….. literally a second. You have time to re-ball the putty and try again if you need to, but do read all instructions supplied with the kit for special tips and if you need help or advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Remember to keep a treat handy to reward your pet for sitting for their noseprint!
