A gift to celebrate the birth of a new baby must be that extra bit special and this is exactly what my new baby plaque is. It’s the perfect keepsake to give to the newborn or to their parents and is one of our most popular products. Every plaque is made to order in my workshop in beautiful Perthshire, Scotland. Because the gift is handwritten, it can say exactly what you want it to.
Making each plaque follows a basic process. After two coats of Farrow and Ball paint, it is then sanded and buffed to a create a smooth finish perfect for writing on. Next, I paint the teddy and small hearts in either a soft pink or soft blue. Then, I hand write the message onto the plaque, the baby’s name onto the teddy and the important birth details onto the 3 small hearts. The font used is my own Billiedoo lettering, developed by me over the years. Everything is done by hand, I never use stamps or stencils. All the parts are then given a coat of satin varnish to ensure the colours stay fresh and vibrant. Once the teddy is glued onto the plaque, it can be tied with jute string, decorated with a ribbon bow and the small hearts strung in a garland below.
If you want, I can handwrite your own message onto the back of the gift to make it even more personal and unique.
Your personalised new baby gift will arrive through the post in an envelope box, like a love letter, but with a Scottish twist. Or you can choose to have the gift posted directly to the recipient, if you prefer. This can be done when checking out.
My aim is to give you as much flexibility and choice as possible, so you can get the personalised gift that you want, the way you want it.
With love to you, from Billiedoo
