BabyRice Home Casting Service
Our casting services make a fantastic gift to not only new parents, but for anyone wanting a keepsake to cherish of a loved one or beloved pet. Let us do the hard work and we'll create beautiful hand, foot and paw keepsakes of your loved ones.
New parents will cherish the teeny tiny hand and foot casts we can create of their precious newborn baby. Extra casts can be made for doting grandparents. Baby hand and foot casts are a treasured keepsake and make for a wonderful family heirloom.
Adult hand casts (either single casts or holding hands) make a fabulous and unique gift for weddings, anniversaries and chersihed keepsakes of the sick or elderly. A perfect and stylish sculpture for any home. Lots of poses can be replicated - clasped hands cast for a 'forever holding hands' cast, thumbs up cast, hand shake cast, pinky promise cast, I love You hand sign cast, hands holding sports equipment and so on. Hands are as unique to each of us as are our fingerprints, and we can replicate this uniqueness perfectly.
Family Hand Casting is the ultimate family gift, if only we could have family hand casts of our ancestors today, imagine just how much we'd cherish them! Create your own Family Hand Cast heirloom, have something unique and true to life that will be treasured for generations to come.
Dog paws can also be made into 3D casts. Dogs are man's best friend, always there when needed, loyal and faithful to the end. We can capture your beloved dog's paw - either their paw cast on it's own, or even with you holding your dog's paw, holding on to them forevermore. If your dog is a calm cookie we can certainly create your dog's paw cast with ease.
Areas we cover
If you live in Worcestershire and the surrounding areas and would like us come to your home to make casts for you, please fill in your requirements below. Serving areas within a 10-15 mile radius from our studio, we can travel to you if you are in an area starting with any one of these postcodes: B31, B60, B80, B97, B98, DY10, DY11, DY12, DY13, DY14, HR6, HR7, HR8, WR1, WR2, WR3, WR4, WR5, WR6, WR7, WR8, WR9, WR10, WR13, WR14, WR15. If you are just outside of these areas, then please do still contact us as we are sure we may still be able to travel to you. We are working towards offering professional casting and family photography from our studio premises in Worcestershire in the near future.
Our caster (as well as all of BabyRice staff) has been double vaccinated. We are taking all precautions necessary to ensure we and our customers are protected as well as we all can be from Covid-19. Regular hand washing, antibacterial gels and cleaners for surfaces are regularly used and we are still wearing masks when being less than 2 metres away from each other.
What happens on a home casting visit
It only takes a few minutes to create the moulds that are needed to create the casts. While we are with you, we will discuss finishing and display options for your casts. For example, we can show you the various paint colours, our range of plinths and personalised engraved plaques; or perhaps you would prefer to display your casts in a beautiful a box display frame. There are so many options to choose from! Plus we can also make a bespoke frame if you prefer something different from our standard range (bespoke framing is available at an additional cost, price depends on frame material, sizing and mount requirements). If you are wanting your casts to be framed in a display frame that will have your baby's photo, then for our standard sized frames the photo needs to be 6x4". It would be helpful to have your favourite photo ready in advance of our visit.
Once we have your casts and photographs, we will undertake the next stage of creating your order back at our casting studio. Your completed order will be ready to collect from us within 10-14 days - we will contact you when your order is ready. It is possible that we can send you your finished casts by courier at a cost of £9.95 which also includes the extra packaging that will be needed to help keep the casts safe during transit. We can also send a frame or plinth along with your finished casts, the frame will be in kit form and you would need to glue the casts to the backing card yourself and then put the frame together (this is easily done with the help of our easy-to-follow instructions and we will also provide you with the glue). The balance payment for your order needs to be paid either prior to despatch (if you are wanting us to courier your order to you) or upon collection.
Please note: We do not cast intimate body parts – for this, please purchase one of our do-it-yourself casting kits!
Casting Gift Vouchers are also available that can be redeemed at a later date.
