Step 2: Make your dog or cat's paw print

Follow the steps below to successfully create a paw print:

  1. Place one of the sheets of paper on a flat surface. Place the ink pad on top of that, with the ink side facing down. The ink side can be recognized by the red sticker!
  2. Position the animal's paw above the ink pad and press the paw gently, not too hard otherwise the print will be completely black.
  3. Now remove the stamp pad from the sheet of paper.

Displeased? The ink pad can be used a maximum of 4 to 5 times. You can repeat the above steps on a new sheet of paper until you get the desired result.

Step 3: Check whether the paw print was created correctly

The paw print is successful if a clear shape is visible and the paw pads do not completely merge. So you must be able to clearly distinguish the pads from each other. This way you can be sure that you will get the pads properly engraved on your jewelry. Are you satisfied? Then go to step 4, where you can take the photo of the paw print you just made.

Step 4: Take a sharp photo of the paw print

When you are satisfied with the paw print, it is time to take a photo of it. It is important to take a sharp photo, because this also contributes to the quality and recognizability of the print on the jewelry.
