Teacher Gift Ideas for any budget and timeline!

Let’s Start with Fingerprint Posters

Aaaahhh, fingerprint posters…my specialty 🙂 This is how MeganHStudio started, friends! And of course, I have a whole bunch specifically for teachers and school staff, and they are all art prints of my hand drawn originals!

Have the kids add their fingerprint and sign their name to one of these art prints. Then add it to a frame and give it as a gift and keepsake of a memorable year! It’s a gift that’s as unique as your fingerprint.

All of these are available as traditional hard copies that I customize, print on premium heavyweight cardstock, and ship. But, if you’re low on time, I have instant download options that you can purchase on Etsy, download and print right away. I’ve got ink pads for fingerprints available too, but I’m sure you won’t have much trouble tracking down some stamp pads in most classrooms 😉 See below for all the options!

Have students add their fingerprints and sign their name as leaves on the branches.

Fingerprint trees are the most common–fingerprints are the added as leaves on the branches. Don’t want to mess with fingerprints? I have signatures posters too 😉

If you are a family that loves the outdoors, then I have the perfect fingerprint guestbook for the next birthday party or baby shower you’re hosting!

Have guests add their fingerprint and sign their name to fill in the scales of the fish, then frame it for a keepsake and add it to the room decor.

It’s from MeganHStudio, so you know it’s hand drawn 🙂 Here’s a quick look at the process behind drawing this fish:

This originated from a recent request from a repeat customer who was planning a Bass-themed baby shower for her grandson. I’ve had other fish-related requests in the past, so it was definitely time to add this guy to the MeganHStudio collection!

My favorite way to draw

I used to predominantly draw with colored pencils on actual paper, and I was skeptical about digital drawing. A year after starting to draw digitally, I’m so glad I gave it a try! The equipment was a big investment, but I firmly stand by my trusty 12.9 inch iPad Pro and 2nd Generation Apple Pencil. It allows me to accomplish SO MUCH MORE and meet the needs of more customers in less time.

This fingerprint fish is available on Etsy and Amazon Handmade, and it’s waiting for you!

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. They’re great for thank you gifts to. I also have signature posters if you don’t want to have to deal with fingerprints 😉

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 fill in a pineapple.

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.

You’ll even notice a few art prints I just finished up!

It’s Time Lapse Time: Birds of a Feather

Quail are adorable and make the perfect subjects for a drawing project, but it hadn’t even crossed my mind to draw them to incorporate in a fingerprint poster. Enter a friend with a mom who loves quail and a wedding anniversary coming up, and suddenly these quail happily made it onto my to-do list!

Guests at the anniversary party can add their fingerprints and sign their names as balloons—then it can be framed and added to the house decor as a cute keepsake!

Check out the time lapse below! You might notice that I didn’t just draw one, then copy it and flip it. For things like this, I think a it’s best to that each quail has it’s own little nuances, don’t you??

I know that quail might not be on everyone’s radar so I haven’t put this pair up in my shop yet, but they may very well get added soon! In the meantime, here’s a few of the biggest sellers from last week to check out:

It’s Time Lapse Time: SomeBUNNY Loves You

My daughter has a bunny named Fireball who is the cutest, orange French Lop bunny you’ve ever seen. Naturally for her 9th birthday party she went with a bunny theme and I worked on attempting to draw Fireball to feature on her invitations and fingerprint poster.

It honestly didn’t even cross my mind to put this drawing up in my shop, but last week I got a request from a customer who was planning a bunny themed nursery for her son and luckily I had JUST the thing!

So I figured we might as well try to make Fireball famous! You can find him in the time lapse below along with in my shop 😉

Get yours using the links below!
