Instructions for using your Inkless Print Kit
Important – The inkless wipe is NOT a wet wipe. It will feel quite dry to the touch – this is normal. DO NOT add water to the wipe as it will cause it to fail.
Do not open the wipe inside your inkless print kit until you are ready to use it. Once opened it can be used a few times but will quickly become less effective.
If you are using the wipe on a small child, it is best to do so when they are in a calm mood, distracted or asleep.
Ensure that the body part being printed is clean and dry.
Place the special paper on a hard surface, for example a hard book or tray. Lightly taping the corners can help to stop the paper moving about.
IMPORTANT: Please make sure the slightly glossy surface of the special paper is facing upwards (If no prints appear quickly turn the paper over)
The towelette will feel dry, this is normal.
If you are the person applying the wipe, DO NOT touch the paper after you have held the towelette as your prints will appear! Either ask someone else to apply the wipe or ensure the paper is ready to take the print. Wash your hands before handling the paper.
Wipe over the hand or foot with the towelette – just enough to ensure the entire area is covered.
Baby Footprint Art- Hold the child’s ankle and press gently but firmly onto the special paper, ensuring all areas have made contact with the paper. Hold for 5-10 seconds, then swiftly move the foot away from the paper.
Handprints- This can be tricky with babies as it is hard to uncurl their fingers so is best carried out when they are sleeping. Press gently but firmly onto the special paper, ensuring all areas have made contact with the paper. Hold for 5-10 seconds, then swiftly move the foot away from the paper. This is easier with another person helping.
