Simply email or snail-mail us a good photocopy of your child's handprints or footprints images, and we'll create a truly custom piece of jewelry, exclusively for you.

We personally make these pieces in our studio using our own unique process of diamond engraved fine horizontal lines deeply into the piece. We use high quality Sterling Silver, Stainless Steel, and solid 14K Gold in either Yellow or White for an heirloom-quality keepsake that will be cherished forever.
We have the following jewelry styles available: oval foot print charm, round hand print or feet print charm, square charm, round pendant, square pendant, heart shaped pendants (Med, Large, XLarge), dog tag pendant, dog tag key chain, round key chain, round bangle bracelets, round cufflinks, and rectangle money clip.
Most of our customers use the footprints or handprints done at the hospital from when the child is born. It is OK if there are smudges or writing through the prints, we can edit this out. However, if the prints are not great quality (heavily smudged, blurry or on dark paper) and you have the opportunity to, you may want to retake the prints using one of the methods below.
The best quality image reproduction is from dark, high contrast ink prints against a white paper background. If you are going to create the handprint or footprint images (not from the hospital), you can use black washable ink and plain white cardstock (without any decorative textures or backgrounds). These can usually be found at your local crafts store. We also have a no-mess, no-fuss Inkless Wipe Imprint Kit with specially coated paper available that you can purchase to create your own prints.
We realize that you may only have one set of prints, especially if using the prints of a loved one that has passed away. We will do the best we can with what you send us, and treat your prints with the utmost respect that they deserve in such a delicate situation. No original copies will be harmed in the making of your custom piece, as we ask for scanned copies or photocopies of the prints. It is OK to have the prints on more than one piece of paper. Just email us each scan and specify your instructions in the email and on your order. We'll take care of the rest!
Scan the prints as a color photograph (not as a document) at 300 or 600 dpi. Save as a .jpg format. We cannot use .pdf and .tif formats. Please note that a Photograph of the ink prints does not render the best quality. We recommend that you use a flat bed scanner to capture the prints. If you do not have access to a scanner, then please mail us a good photocopy of the prints (do not send originals) and we will scan the prints in our studio for the best quality finished piece
Email us a .jpg format of your scan. Be sure to include your customer name and invoice number in the subject line to:
info @ myforeverchild.com (remove the spaces)
If you prefer, you can mail a Photocopy of the original prints with a copy of your order to:
My Forever Child

We will reconfigure the prints to fit best on the piece you ordered.
This revised image is input into our unique software, optimized, and converted into a file that our engraving machine can read. The image is diamond engraved with fine horizontal lines into a high-polish, sturdy sterling silver jewelry piece. 14K gold pieces are also available in white and yellow gold.
The image will shimmer from light to dark at different angles as the light reflects on the diamond cut metal. Photographs are not able to be reproduced with this process, only handprints, footprints, fingerprints, signatures, and line-drawn artwork.
Items are engraveable, in Block-Capitals, Cursive, Script, or Roman font. The Charms can have engraving on the Back of the piece, and the Pendants and Keychains can have engraving on the front as well, please see the individual product description. The graphic designer reserves the right to configure the personalization for the best possible fit. The first line of personalization is included in the price.

If you had a second trimester baby, it may be possible to reproduce the actual size of your baby's footprints. When you place your order, please note that you'd like the baby's actual footprint size used and include the baby's actual length and width of footprint/handprint in millimeters. Usually the best pieces to have engraved with the actual sized prints are the Dog Tag, Round Pendant, Square Pendant, and X-Large Round Pendant. Because of their tapered shape, the heart pendants are generally not large enough to have the actual sized prints. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding actual sized prints.
Optional bracelet, necklace chains, and genuine gemstone birthstone dangles are listed in the product description.
Please double check all spellings and dates on personalization. Due to custom nature of these products, returns are not allowed, unless there`s an error on our part.
Please allow approximately 3-4 weeks for processing before your order is shipped. Holidays such as Christmas, Mother's Day and Father's Day have specific cut off dates to order by, to ensure the proper time required for processing and shipping. Please see our Holiday Ordering Dates before placing your order.
