Q: What if my child moves during the taking of the moulds?
A: If the child moves, and the mould is damaged, we will simply
redo it. I can tell by the mould if it has to be redone; you are
guaranteed good molds. (P.S. They all wriggle and move!!)
Q: Will you do "Baby Parties"?
A: Although people ask for this service, I feel that too many children
and parents together in one place over stimulates, and frankly,
the results are not as nice. A relaxed environment in a one-one-one
situation always works best. This way, I am able to spend the time
needed to make the best product I can for you. I do however offer
a 10% discount for twins and a 15% discount for triplets.
(makes you almost wish you had triplets instead of twins :-)
Q: Will you do imprints of deceased people?
A: Yes. We do imprints of recently deceased family members.
