About Silver Pet Prints
Silver Pet Prints was founded by the creators of the successful Smallprint franchise which makes jewellery capturing children’s fingerprints, hand and footprints and drawings on sterling silver jewellery.
Silver Pet Prints has taken the same approach of creating sentimental keep sakes and brought it to the in-demand pet market to create personalised, handcrafted, fine silver jewellery pieces that are engraved with a pet’s unique paw print. They hold a very special place in people’s hearts and their homes and as such, each Silver Pet Print they make holds enormous sentimental value to their owner.
