The best things come in small packages! Open the bottle to reveal the personalised message typed on satin ribbon.
This is a beautiful keepsake for new parents or a unique way to announce your baby's arrival. It's also perfect as a godparent gift for a naming ceremony or Christening and is sure to be treasured for years to come.
Your message will be printed on the ribbon in a vintage typewriter style font and the ends of the ribbon sealed to prevent fraying. The label and tag are typed on a vintage Hermes Baby typewriter. The bottle is 4cm high and is presented in a little velvet bag. A matchstick is included for pushing the ribbon back into the bottle.
The maximum message length is 205 characters (including spaces) as this is about the length of ribbon that will fit in the little bottle. You can select:
A name or a word for the label on the bottle
A date for the tag
If you know the time of birth we'll include it on the back of the tag (optional)
Please don't include emoticons (smiley faces) or heart symbols <3 on the label or hanging tag because the characters on a typewriter are spaced slightly differently than on your computer so they won't look quite right, and some symbols aren't available. You can use them in the ribbon message though, and we can also print on the ribbon in many languages (click the "ask seller a question" button to check with us).
