Hello! My name is Hedy Hale. In 1974 my husband Ross and I arrived in the seaside community of Morro Bay, California, with a plan to open a working pottery studio. During the first year of working, it became readily apparent that we needed a way to bring in extra income on a daily basis. Hence, 33 years ago our ceramic handprint business Pawprints was born. We started out on a shoestring, and as we made money we invested more. We built our handprint business from the ground up. What started out as a way to preserve lasting memories for our friends grew by popular demand into a thriving business.
For the last 33 years we have been privileged to preserve thousands of families precious memories of their children and pets through our ceramic handprints. Our business Pawprints has contributed to the lives of others and significantly to our own. Our small gift from the heart has created a way for us to raise and support our family while living a flexible, creative, and meaningful life. It is the gift that continues to grow in our lives as well as our business.
Over the years we received many inquiries from our “mom” clients on how they too could create ceramic handprints and start similar businesses in their communities. Because we wanted to share this opportunity for a rewarding business, we decided to develop a hands-on business-training program that offers step-by-step instructions on how to run a ceramic handprint business. We share everything we know, and no experience in clay is necessary. We detail all facets of the business from production to marketing methods. For over 18 years we have taught 3-day personalized business training programs in our studio in Morro bay, CA. Many of our “mom students” have successfully opened and operated their own ceramic handprint businesses as a direct result.
To make our business opportunity even more accessible to all moms, we have now created and are excited to share our At Home Ceramic Handprint Business Training Program Step-by-Step DVD and Manual. This audio-visual training is a professionally produced instructional DVD paired with our comprehensive manual where moms are able to learn in the comfort of their own home at a pace that is comfortable for them. It is a complete business start-up package that includes all the information you need to make the highest quality ceramic hand and footprints, organize and run this business as well as tried and true marketing methods based on our decades of expertise and experience. Plus we offer ongoing technical support. We use these exact steps in our business everyday.
Our ceramic handprint business has proven to be very rewarding and profitable for us. We enjoy working with the families and kids. We are currently doing second generations now! For years we have been part of our community helping with many fundraisers for great causes. We love what we do, and feel very fortunate that we have created this successful ceramic handprint business for ourselves and are able to share this success with all moms and families who desire a flexible and creative home business where they are able to raise their income while they raise their children at home. It is a great feeling to know that we are making a difference in women’s lives by sharing our experience and knowledge with them. Our personal training programs give them the confidence and knowledge to start their own successful family handprint business with heart. We want them to succeed in their business. Their success is truly our success.
