Four Steps To Ordering Fingerprint Jewelry

When you order your fingerprint jewelry, there are four steps to the ordering process. And you will want to be sure not to miss any part of the steps to ensure you are fully happy with your product.

We've outlined the steps below and this is exactly what you will see on each fingerprint jewelry product page:

STEP 1

First, you will be asked if you need a free fingerprint collection kit. If you do, simply mark yes. If you already have the fingerprint image, you can select no.


STEP 2

Second, you will be asked to upload your fingerprint image for us to get started on your custom order. We do not start any process of making your necklace or keychain until we have received your order, thus ensuring you know that your keepsake is completely original to you.


STEP 3

Third, you will choose your desired length of your chain for your necklace. Each necklace comes with a free chain that is 20 inches in length. However, if you would like a different length, this will be the step you will order your desired length choosing between 18, 22, 24, or 30 inches.


STEP 4

Lastly you will need to choose if you would like to include an engraving on your pendant or keychain. If so, then this is the step where you will submit exactly what you would like to have engraved on your jewelry. Again, this step ensures that you know your jewelry is completely and totally unique and individual to you and your loved one.

How To Obtain The Fingerprint

Ordering your fingerprint jewelry is easy. Sometimes, however, getting the fingerprint can be more difficult. Some funeral homes will likely have a fingerprint available for you.

If this is the case, you can ask to get a copy of the fingerprint and upload it to us right on the product page. This can make the process much easier. If you do already have a fingerprint from the funeral home, there is a place to upload it on the order page after the question asking if you need the fingerprint kit.

However, other times you will need to get creative. Below you will see our suggestions for some ideas to obtain your loved one’s fingerprint. There are two options outlined below, first we will walk you through what to do if you are able to take the fingerprint directly from your loved one. Secondly, we will provide an alternative option if you can no longer physically get the print from their fingers.

9 Steps To Getting A Fingerprint From Your Loved One

Choose your fingerprint background. This can be white card stock or a white piece of paper. The lighter in color the paper the better so that the fingerprint stands out.


Choose your medium such as either ink or a graphite pencil. With the pencil you can take a piece of paper and run the pencil back and forth until the surface is very black with graphite.


Wash your hands thoroughly, removing any dirt and oils from the skin. Dry your hands with a lint free towel.


Choose the finger for the fingerprint. Your best bet is to use your thumb as this will produce the biggest print.


This step is best performed with assistance. Have another person grab the thumb at the base where it joins the hand. You want to ink the thumb from the top of the thumb to the joint. Turn the thumb slightly sideways so that the outside of the thumb pad is placed on the ink first. Roll the thumb completely to the other side of the thumb pad and then remove.


You are going to repeat the same step as number five, but this time do it on your selected background. And again, it is best performed with assistance. Using light pressure, roll the thumb from the outside of the thumb pad to the inside of the thumb pad. The thumb should only be rolled once as additional back and forth can cause smudging.


You can repeat steps 3-6 as many times necessary to get the result that you are looking for. The fingerprint should have no smudges and clear edges.


Take a digital image of your fingerprint. It’s okay to zoom in as long as you retain focus on the fingerprint and the image isn’t blurry.


When ordering your keepsake, upload your image. After that we will do the rest to create your amazing reminder of your loved one.

As always, every piece of fingerprint jewelry from us comes with a complimentary fingerprint collection kit. The kit comes with everything that is needed including: ink strips, instructions, the card to put fingerprints on, plus the QR code to scan and upload the prints.

Other Methods For Getting A Fingerprint

You might not have a copy of the fingerprints, nor can you obtain one. In this case, there is an alternative option. Similar to forensics investigators on your favorite TV show, you can dust your home for fingerprints. WikiHow has a step by step process for how to do this.

First, you will want to find something around the house that has your loved one’s fingerprints on it. Then you will gather your supplies. The items you will need to gather include the following:

  • A small brush such as a paint brush or makeup brush
  • The powder you will use to dust with. The pros use either a white or black powder depending on the color of the surface you are dusting. For a dark colored surface, you could use baby powder and for a lighter colored surface you could use cocoa powder.
  • Clear tape such as scotch tape, do not use duct tape or anything not clear
  • Paper, this will need to be the opposite color of your powder. So, for white powder use black construction paper and for the cocoa powder, a simple plain white index card is best.

Now you will actually start to get your fingerprint of your loved one. The process will look similar to that which you have seen on TV. You will dust smooth hard surfaces with your brush and powder looking for any prints.

Once you see one you can use, take the clear tape and “pick up” the print from the surface. Immediately place the tape with the print on it on your index card. At this point you will simply take a picture of your print and upload it into your online order as explained above.

What Is Included With Your Purchase?

When you purchase your fingerprint jewelry, you will receive your beautiful piece of jewelry. Plus, if it’s a pendant necklace you will also receive the complimentary matching chain.

Additionally, it will come beautifully packaged in a gift box making this the perfect gift for someone who recently lost a loved one. As mentioned above, this item makes a lovely gift for anyone missing a dearly departed love one. And remember, if you need it, all of our fingerprint jewelry also comes with a free fingerprint kit to help you collect the fingerprint for your jewelry.

Great Gift Option

Some things to think about when you go through the order process is who will be getting this item? Who will be buying this jewelry? Having so many options when it comes to creating your own personalized fingerprint jewelry means that every person can find just the right type of jewelry for them.

This is a great gift for younger children to spouses and everyone in between. If you have a child that you would like to have a special keepsake for one of their grandparents, this type of jewelry is a great idea. If your loved one has departed but you would like to keep a special memento of them close by, again this is a great choice.

As mentioned above, we have many different items to fit any budget. Our amazingly beautiful fingerprint jewelry truly makes a great gift for everyone.
