Claire, your Babyprints Bath and Avon specialist
Hi, I’m Claire. I opened my Babyprints franchise in 2017 and have been creating special memories for customers in the Bath, Wiltshire and Bristol areas ever since. I have created 100s of casts, each one unique and treasured by their owners. Casts can be taken at any age, from the newest to the oldest members of your family, from individual hands and feet to families joined together forever. The process is very quick and whilst generally adults and older children do as they’re told, babies can and do behave differently. I’ve had many that slept through the whole process, some who have smiled and “chatted” to me while I took their casts, and others who have needed a little more distraction and comforting!
Having been a primary school teacher for over 20 years, I have a huge amount of experience working with children. However your child reacts, my aim is to keep everyone as relaxed as possible so they’re able to enjoy the experience.
I allow an hour for appointments and most of this time will be taken up by you choosing the perfect frame and mount. I have a wide selection of styles and colours for you to choose from. The casting itself takes less than a minute for each little hand or foot and I like to allow extra time in case you need to feed or change your little one.
Appointments take place in my home, where I have a range of display frames that may help to guide your choices. Each solid wood frame and mount is made to order at our Babyprints framers in Bishops Stortford, so reliability and continuity of service and product is assured as your family grows. Even if it is years between visits. Babyprints can offer you the same high quality every time.
I also offer free standing statues, impressions, cold metal casts and a range of beautiful, solid silver hand and footprint jewellery. Our wide choice of products means you can always find the perfect gift or keepsake for any occasion, or budget, for those special people in your life.
Appointments must be booked in advance and are available Monday to Friday 9:30 – 4:00 and Saturday morning 9:30 – 12:30. Finished pieces are usually ready for collection within 4 – 6 weeks.
I look forward to creating your special memories.
Claire is fantastic. She put us at ease immediately (not always easy with a baby just a few days old) and was both warm and professional. She talked us through all the options and was so accommodating with trying something new for us with some old casts we had done for my other children. The casts Claire did for us are stunning, framed beautifully and will be treasured forever. I couldn’t recommend Claire highly enough.
I ordered 2 cast frames from Claire of my 2 children, 5 week old and 3 and a half year old. Nothing was too much trouble for Claire who was friendly and very professional throughout. We now have 2 beautiful frames with castings of our little ones feet and hands to cherish forever! I would thoroughly recommend to everyone! Thank you Claire!
Claire is so friendly and easy to chat with. She welcomes you into her home and makes you feel at ease instantly. My little girl needed a feed when I arrived and Claire made me a lovely hot cup of coffee-a rare treat! I am so thrilled to have such a wonderful keepsake of my baby girl. the casts look fantastic and will be treasured forever!
Such a lovely thing to have of our little ones’ hand and footprints to remember how little he once was! Claire is lovely. We really enjoyed the whole process of having our moulds done and Claire telling us how it is all made. Really interesting. Would definitely recommend.
We totally love our casts! They look so fabulous and everyone comments on them! A very special memory to treasure
Claire, is such a skilled craftswoman! From us not knowing what we wanted, she was perfect and knowledgeable in recommending what casts, colours and mounts would work well. She was so at ease with our 6 month old boy and 21 mo2nth old girl, that the whole process was lovely. I would recommend Claire for any casting work of your loved ones. We now have a wonderful piece of art of both our children to remember for years to come.
