The Fingerprint Tree

Southern Highlands Welcome Centre, 62-70 Main Street, Mittagong
PH. 0488 133 232 /

A Fingerprint Tree Guest Book is the perfect way to preserve precious memories of your special occasions. Each one of the leaves are the actual fingerprints of the people dear to you, meaning a Fingerprint Tree is the most uniquely personalised memento your could ever have.

The Fingerprint Tree guest book is an image of a tree where guests literally leaf (leave) their fingerprints, marking their attendance at your celebration. The leaves on the tree are formed and created with the actual fingerprints of your guests. Guests then sign their own name on, below or above their fingerprint.

All printing, Ink Pads and Pens (are NOT created equal) - we've literally tested 100's of combinations to ensure you receive the most premium product, to achieve the best result!

Whilst we give you the option to purchase the Giclée print only, we highly recommend you include the optional ingredients with your order. Using our combination of paper stock, Giclée printing, archival ink pads and archival pens we can offer you the best possible result to complete your stunning artwork, your guest book.

Although The Fingerprint Tree® was first used for weddings, we identified this beautiful product was in-fact suitable for various events and occasions, therefore our range has been expanded to over 80 designs, in order to 'tickle' the creative bone in all of us, to open up minds and offer beautifully designed and thoughtful guest books for ALL occasions, Including but not limited to, Family Reunions, Anniversaries, Baby Showers, Baby Gender Reveal Parties, Bridal Showers, Births, Christenings and Baptisms, Milestone Birthdays, Bar and Bat Mitzvah, Retirements, Graduations, Housewarmings, Holidays, Corporate events, Church events, Funerals, Family Tree, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Sporting groups, Industry Groups, Charity events, Gift for Teacher. Fingerprint Trees can be used for any event or special occasion. Other designs besides the bare tree are used and referred to as a fingerprint tree; however, the bare tree image remains the staple and signature of The Fingerprint Tree® (it forms part of our logo).

We look forward to creating your personalised Fingerprint Tree.

The Fingerprint Tree®, bespoke gifts you'll treasure!

We love this quote!
?When you buy something from an artist you are buying more than an object. You?re buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You?re buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You?re not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul? a piece of someone else?s life.?
