Memories in Oak
We make beautifully detailed, solid oak keepsakes – Each one as perfectly unique as your baby
Our solid Oak ‘Postcard’ showcases a raised hand or footprint of a child age 0-4 years old alongside two inscriptions: their name and birthdate.
Choose between four engraving styles, carved along the bottom edge of the frame. The age/date inscription is engraved at 90 degrees.
Our unique ‘Postcard’ has been designed to be hung or freestanding and is beautifully packaged in a luxury presentation box, making it an ideal gift.

Your child’s hand and footprints are carved into solid oak in exquisite detail leaving wonderfully tactile raised prints.
Two further pieces of oak are included to record a name and date or age of your choosing.
Personalise your ladder further by choosing from four engraving fonts, two types of rope and between four choices of 3-colour twine. The back of the piece has a black baize covering to protect your wall.
Designed for the prints of children 2 aged years and under.

Made in Warwickshire by Pete & Holly
We are a family business working from our workshop in rural Warwickshire.
Utilising Pete’s background as a classical guitar maker and modern 3D modelling technologies, we created our first carved baby handprints for our own children – born not long after Holly said ‘goodnight’ to ‘In the Night Garden’ in which she played Tombliboo-OO.
Soon, what started as a wish to create a lasting reminder of how small our little ones really were, evolved into the ‘Postcard’ and the ‘Ladder’. We’re so proud they now sit on shelves, tables and mantelpieces across the country – and around the world.
Every one of our carvings is crafted with the same level of care and detail as that first piece, and makes a perfect gift for any new parents, grandparents or friends which only grow more precious over time.
