A Thumbies personalized print charm is such a unique and precious piece of jewelry, created from actual fingerprints, handprints, or footprints. Combining the wonders of modern scanning technology with the ancient technique of lost wax casting, the prints are fashioned into artistic and intricately detailed jewelry.
These charms are truly the ultimate keepsake gift idea for a loved one – or for yourself!
They are a touching way to remember a parent, spouse, sibling, child, or friend and to keep their memories alive and close to you in your everyday life. The personalized print charms are available in sterling silver and 14K yellow and white gold.
The "standard-sized" charms are about the size of a dime and the "grand-sized" charms are about the size of a quarter.
Each charm is listed individually on their own web pages. You may select a small synthetic birthstone or a genuine diamond if desired to be included at the top of the charm (on the “bail” or hoop where it connects to a chain), adding elegance to each finished piece.
You may purchase your charm with an 18-inch gold or silver chain with a high-quality closure. We also offer a link for Pandora bracelets. You will have a chance to provide engraving when you order on-line or when you receive your ink print kit and send your prints in to our jewelry designers. The engraving is done on the back side of the charm in capital letters using an Arial font. A script font may also be requested.
Please Note: For a baby keepsake charm, we strongly recommend a baby foot print or hand print (babies don’t develop mature fingerprints until they are 3 years old). Please select a hand or foot print charm for babies and toddlers.
Our charm process is surprisingly easy. Select your preferred piece of jewelry and place your order. We can send you a Print Ink Kit by mail if you need one to take the prints (the kit comes with a self-addressed envelope so you'll know where to mail the prints). Or if you already have an ink print taken, you may mail it to us at Tear Catcher Gifts, or you may submit the print electronically to us at firstname.lastname@example.org - Please be sure to scan each print individually at 600 dpi, crop out extra white space around it, and save it as a jpeg file. Please don't send in your print until AFTER you order, and reference your order number when you submit the print.
We will confirm that we received your order and your print. From the time your print is received, it takes 4-5 weeks for production. Each keepsake charm is one-of-a-kind and is truly as individual as the print it replicates! These charms make uniquely personal wedding, anniversary, birthday, Mother's Day, and remembrance gifts.
Thank you once again for your interest! We hope to hear from you if you have any questions.
