HAPPY CASTINGS 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. Casting Gift Vouchers are available that can be redeemed at a later date. Adult hand casts (either single casts or holding hands) make a fabulous and unique gift for weddings, anniversaries or pre-bereavement of the sick or elderly. We can cast family hands and also pet paw prints.
AREAS WE COVER
If you live in Belfast 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 15 mile radius from our studio. 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 from our studio premises in Belfast in the near future.
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 6×4″. 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.
