Prices range from £24.95 to £80 and include artwork, glazing and firing. Please be aware that due to firing restrictions at busy times, we ask that you consider timescales seriously and make sure you can give as much advance notice as possible, particularly if numbers of items are high, for example wedding favours, or multiple copies.

Looking for a personalised gift item, or gift set, or have a more unusual name that’s not often featured in more standardised personalisation services, look no further. Choose from one of our four themes of hearts, stars, buttons or spots, add your choice of name with no character limit and we’ll do the rest, you can even choose your own colour scheme of up to three colours.

Mug – £10, Cereal Bowl – £12, 10” Plate – £15 or the full set for just £30.

Signature Plates

Signing Plates are an original way to mark any special occasion and are particularly popular for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, christenings, naming ceremonies, retirements, new arrivals, new home etc. 
It doesn’t have to be a plate: it could be anything from a mug to a teapot, a vase or plant pot or even a wine cooler. You choose the item from a selection, choice a illustrative design and specify any text or messages, we’ll glaze and fire the item and it’s ready for collection within a week. We’ll provide you with your choice in colour of porcelain paint pens for use at the event. Guest can write their messages directly on the item and these can be sealed on later in your own home oven! After 20 minutes baking at home the signatures and messages are food safe and dishwasher proof, an excellent alternative to a traditional guest book, Prices for this service start from as little as £35-£80, depending on the size of the item.

Hand and Footprints

What a better way for parents to recall their children’s early years and stages of development than capturing that special moment in time with your baby or child’s hand and or footprint. Prints can be made onto plates, coasters, mugs, bowls, tiles, Christmas baubles and many more items. Even the tiniest of babies can have their footprint preserved onto a piece of your choice, either to be used or simply cherished forever.

The paints we use are all washable and non-toxic and our staff are trained and always happy to help and will assist with the taking of children’s prints. There’s no age limit or how your imagination chooses to decorate these items or leave it up to us to write on names and messages and decorate with style.

Babies are welcome from 2 weeks old and prices start from as little as £3.50 for a coaster and up to £35 for a large bowl, jug or platter. The average cost of a mug or plate is £8-12. Please ask for more details about our studio fees or a price list of available items. We offer a weekly Thursday print taking service at Kings Heath Park from 10.30am – 4.30pm, with bookable time slots available, for speed and convenience. We welcome NCT and mum’s groups to the sumptuous Tea Rooms at the park, for a natter, refreshments and a creative experience for you and your little one to treasure.

Plaster Outprints
