Claire, your Babyprints Bath and Avon specialist
I’m Claire and I am a specialist life-caster. I have been trained by highly experienced colleagues to create stunningly detailed casts and impressions of your loved ones’ hands and feet.
Having been a primary school teacher for over 20 years, I have a huge amount of experience working with children. I offer a friendly and flexible service working from my home in the Trowbridge area.
All castings are on an appointment-only basis. Appointments last about an hour, which includes time to take the casts and for you to choose your framing options. We offer a range of beautiful products including 3D statues, framed 3D casts, and impressions, all of which are finished to the highest standard. All our products, including our frames, are handmade to order with exquisite care and finished pieces are usually ready for collection within 4-6 weeks.
Babyprints specialise in providing a handprint and footprint casting service for babies, children and even adults. Unlike hand and foot casting kits, we do all the work for you – with guaranteed quality results every time, we have something to suit every occasion and budget.
Each babyprint is unique – and you get a vast array of framing colour combinations to choose from. Babyprints make a perfect gift for proud new parents and grandparents alike.
I am very excited to be part of the Babyprints franchise team and I look forward to creating beautiful keepsakes for you that capture a precious moment in time.

Peta Stathis – September 2018
We were so delighted with the impressions of our twin boys feet when we received the frames. Claire was brilliant with the babies and in helping us make the right decisions on what to go for and she even went to the trouble of redoing them when she wasn’t happy with the first go. I will share a picture when we finally get them put up (everything takes longer with twins!). I look forward to returning to get hand casts done when the boys are old enough to hold hands!
Highly recommend Claire and her service.
David James Gee – August 2018
Claire created casts of our son’s hand and foot when he was only four weeks old. Now a few weeks later we’ve collected them and they are amazing! The detail on the casting is so fine and the final framed product is such a lovely keepsake.
Claire made us feel so welcome during the whole experience. She has a lovely set up in her home where you’re able to see different examples of what can be done, types of frames, arrangements, colours etc. We never knew we’d have so much choice. The hardest bit of the whole process was us trying to decide how we wanted it framed and mounted.
Her customer service is fantastic, she is so helpful, understating and accommodating. We’ve already recommended her to friends and will be coming back again.
Emma Louise – August 2018
Claire made casts of my 9 week old baby girls hands and we and love them and really recommend getting them done. The whole process of getting them made was amazing. Claire welcomed us into her home and was warm and friendly. She had a quiet private place for me to breastfeed and she didn’t mind we had to stop the process twice (!) for a dirty nappy! She even recommend a lovely restaurant nearby for our lunch. The finished product is lovely and such a great keepsake to remember how tiny our little baby was. Thank you so much xxx
Axel Saunders – June 2018 – Absolutely brilliant.
Zara Hill – May2018
Highly recommend!! Claire did a framed hand and foot cast of my daughter when she was 10 weeks old to remember how small she was as she grows. The finished product is absolutely beautiful and proudly on the wall next to the 2 canvases from the newborn shoot I did of my daughter at 10 days old. Special memories
Thank you so much Claire for this memory

Claire Edwards – March 2018 5*
I ordered silver casts of my baby’s hands and feet for my husband’s birthday and he absolutely loved them. The detail is incredible and it is such an amazing keepsake for us. I would definitely recommend Claire as she was professional, courteous and simply lovely. I will definitely be using her again in the future.

Claire was so good with our little one, who wasn’t the most willing customer at only 6 weeks old. We’re so pleased with the quality of the casts too.
Kirsty Matthis – March 2018 5*

We are delighted with the baby feet casts that Claire made for us. It was great to have lots of choice for the frame and mount and I’m sure that our daughter will treasure her ‘baby feet’ for many years. Thank you!

Claire replied to my messages very quickly and arranged a time and day that suited me. Claire also went in depth about the procedure.
Such a calm atmosphere (my 11 month old daughter slept right through it).
5 star service from start to finish!! Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to capture a treasured moment of my daughters tiny little hand in mine.

Thank You Claire so very much for your kind surprise gift that I’d love to share.
Claire sent me the most beautiful, thoughtful gift in the post, a cast of my previous foster greyhound’s paw. The detail is incredible, the cast is very tactile, nice and solid.
A paw print is a very precious memory, Claire is such a lovely, calm, caring lady. If you’re looking for a special keepsake of your beloved pet give Claire a call.

It was such a good experience to get our Family Tree done by Claire, she was quick to respond to messages, was flexible in arranging a time that would suit all 4 of us and was very patient and good with the kids (a baby of 4 months and a 20 month old). The end result is amazing and am very pleased with the outcome, would recommend it for anyone!!!
Chez Rusz 5*
From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed. The fact you get to choose the colours, mounts & frame was just a bonus. The process was very straight forward and we didn’t have many tears from my daughter. The end project was fantastic! if anyone is interested this is the lady to go to. Brilliant service.

I would absolutely recommend Claire at Babyprints if you are looking for casting. She did a superb job for my son and now we have a lovely memento to keep forever. Reasonable price and quality product, couldn’t ask for more. Thank you!

Taking the prints:
The casting is a simple process, and involves gently immersing each hand or foot in a lukewarm syrupy material the consistency of thick custard, which sets in about 60 seconds to a rubbery mould from which the hand or foot is easily removed. We use high quality hypoallergenic moulding powder that gives a fine cast and excellent result.
The impressions are taken by pressing the hand or foot into soft clay, from which a plaster tile is created and then framed.
