Tutorial – How to take Adult Handprints and Fingerprints using our BabyRice Inkless Wipes and Cards.
See just how easy it is to capture handprints and fingerprints using our BabyRice Inkless Wipes and Cards! The detail is incredible as you will see and the inkless wipes are mess and fuss free to use.
This tutorial shows how to take adult handprints and fingerprints, though you can of course use these on babies and pets (more tutorials to follow). Our BabyRice Inkless Wipes are totally safe to use on newborn skin and conform to EU standards.
You will need:
A flat surface to put your cards on, have your cards placed so that they are ready to be printed on.
Have a damp cloth or baby wipes ready to wipe your hands after each use (though do wash your hands with soap and water once finished).
You might find it helpful to have some tissues or a small towel handy to wipe your hands dry.
The inkless wipe will soon dry out, therefore, only remove from the wrapper once you are ready to take the prints.
The paper is coated on ONE side only and it’s the coated the side that you need to put the print on.
The rear uncoated side is printed, so this is the side NOT to be used!
1. Have the cards ready for you to print on. Remember to have the cards the right way round (cards say ‘do not print’ on reverse side).
2. Before using the wipe, make sure the surface area of the hand is clean.
3. Remove the wipe from the wrapping, unfold it and wipe all over the hand.
4. Then gently, but firmly, press the hand onto the coated side of the paper – gently roll the hand from the palm to the fingertips – an adult’s palm tends to not be completely flat, so by rolling the hand you will get a better print of the palm.
Your print will appear immediately and will take a few seconds before it’s fully set.
5. Fingerprints – wipe the wipe over the tips of the fingers. Then gently press each finger onto the card and see your fingerprint magically appear! Do not press too hard as the fingerprint lines will be squashed together and the fine details of the print will not be very well defined at all!
6. Repeat as necessary
