Check out all the Latest Designs!

I’ve been busy adding more fun designs to my collection! Read on for the latest and greatest! But first…

What is a Fingerprint Poster??

Well I’m glad you asked! A fingerprint poster is an alternative to a traditional guestbook for events like birthdays, baby showers, and weddings.

Guests add their fingerprint and sign their name as a clever way to complete the picture. Then you can frame it and add it to the room decor as a keepsake of the day! Fingerprint trees are probably the most common (guests add their fingerprints as leaves), but the possibilities are endless—fingerprints can represent balloons, spots on a giraffe, flower petals, or watermelon seeds!

There are lots of artists out there offering fingerprint posters in all kinds of fun designs. When you buy from MeganHStudio, you know it’s always an art print of my hand drawn originals 😉

It’s Time Lapse Time: One Cool Cat

I have a lot of favorite customers, but my kids are definitely my top 3 favs — every year we have fun deciding on a theme for their upcoming birthdays and putting together fun invites and fingerprint posters. My son recently turned 7 and he spent months before his party debating what theme to go with. Sonic, Mario…Sonic AND Mario, Metal Sonic…at the last minute he threw us all for a curve and decided to go with a Bobcat theme since that’s his favorite animal.

So we went with a “one cool cat” theme and had fun with bobcats in sunglasses! Here’s the time lapse of the bobcat drawing.

Every once in awhile, my kids pick a theme that results in something with mass appeal that I can also offer to other customers, but mostly…not! One year my oldest daughter decided on a jaguar/pelican/parrot theme…you can bet THAT design isn’t in big demand!

For items with a bit more mass appeal, check out hear fingerprint guestbook alternatives that have been popular this week:

5 Unique Baby Shower Gift Ideas

You know the parents-to-be will get 3 sets of the same pack of onesies from Target at their baby shower–the same batch of onesies that every baby born that year will be wearing. Don’t get me wrong, onesies are an important staple in any new baby’s wardrobe. They’ll go through them. So go ahead and get the onesies, but also keep these unique baby shower gift ideas in mind!

1. Something Personalized

ChipolaStudio creates incredible personalized pieces with different themes that LIGHT UP (are you kidding me??)!

With price points for any budget, they offer DIY Paper Art Kits that you assemble yourself or, they also have pre-assembled framed paper light boxes that are absolutely incredible. You definitely won’t find something this special at Target!

 

2. Something Baby Needs When He’s Older

I love the wooden toys and games from SmilingTreeToys. They’re hand crafted, and many of them can be personalized.

Wooden toys have such a classic look, they can be use for nursery decor until baby is old enough to play with them.

Check out the stacking toys, and name puzzles they have available. I use the stacking toy as a photo prop whenever I can get my youngest to stop playing with it 🙂

3. Something Funny and Cute

BellaLexiBoutique has a lot of funny and cute options for baby clothes.

A funny and sweet baby bodysuit from the “otter” side is just the start. There’s a pun and cute critter for every theme! New to the Herd? This Little Piggy? She’s got you covered!

Something like this defintley won’t be a duplicate gift! These bodysuits will stand out as favorites when it’s time to get dressed (or re-dressed).

4. Something for Big Brother and Sister

And not just those cute T-shirts that say “Big Bro” and “Big Sis,” although those are great too. The role of an older sibling in the family will change dramatically when the new baby comes. Help ease them into it!

Depending on how old big brother and big sister are, TheIdeaBoxKids has some great options! They have boxes filled with wooden coins that have different questions or activities that relate to the new baby and mom’s pregnancy. It gets kids thinking about how they can be involved and what they can do to be a helpful part of the family as big changes start to occur.

Check out their Big Brother Box and Big Sister Box. And btw, they have a box of coins for every occastion!

Recommended for age 3-10.

5. A Fingerprint Guestbook Alternative

I may be biased since this is a big part of what I do as an artist, but I wouldn’t make fingerprint trees if I didn’t beleive in their sentiment!

When you’re pregnant, everything goes SO fast. Some things are terrible (morning sickness), some things are awesome (maternity leggings), but it ALL goes quick when you look back on it. And there’s so much that we forget as time passes.

A fingerprint tree helps to hold the baby shower in a freeze frame so we can remember that time, that day. All my kids have fingerprint trees framed and hung in their rooms. We often talk about the birthday party or baby shower that goes along with each. We remember not only who was there, but how Papa’s fingerprint usually ends up in a funny spot, how we came up with the theme for the tree that year, and the special things that happened that day.

Guests add their fingerprint as leaves on the tree and sign their name. Then, frame it for a keepsake and add it to the nursery decor!

Baby showers are special. If you show up to one with a fingerprint tree and a  set of ink pads, you will be the baby shower hero! And the great news is, I’ve got one for just about any theme, and any timeframe you’re working with!
