Questions & Answers

10 Customer Questions

I have four cats and want to get paw impressions for all of them. How many of these should I purchase?

Can these be used to transfer to tattoos?
Answer by ChewyAug 26, 2021
The discretion of whether the clean touch ink pad can be transferred as a tattoo lies in the tattoo artist in question. It is not the intended use of the product but could possibly be used for that desired function. Ultimately, you will have to consult with the artist.

Can you use this in their nose? I want a nose print?
Answer by ChewyJan 13, 2021
Pearhead Clean-Touch Ink Pad is designed for use with your dog or cat's paw.

can you use the pad and paper for more than 1 paw, like a cats 2 front paws
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2022
The ink pad and impression card accommodates paws up to 2.25 inches wide and 3.5 inches high. Depending on the size of your pets paw, one or more impression may fit.

Total fail

It ended up in the garbage after 5 tries. Different levels of pressure were tried, using the spot where the ink was thinner was tried, but each time all we got were thick black globs. The boys are only 15 lbs each and both walked over it on their own, as well as having me delicately place their paw on it. Nothing worked to get a usable print.

Great keepsake to remember your pet

Bought these to make a keepsake pawprint for my 10 year old Boxer. I was lucky enough to get it made before he passed away on 1-6-23, and I will cherish his pawprint forever. This is a great product for those who want to remember their animal.

Super cute!!

I did the christmas ornament pawprints with my cat but wanted something we could have out all year long so I bought this kit too. This worked great with my cat, who will do anything for treats! The first 3 tries, he let me grab his paw and press it down (this worked the best - I taped the ink pad to the paper to keep it steady). There was still ink left on the pad after using both the cards, so I did a few extras on a piece of printer paper. Him walking across it didn't work as well but still captured a few extra prints. All in all a success, now I can frame some of his cute little pawprints and I can get his paw tattooed!

Easy to figure out, disappointing results. I've done this with another dog using a regular non-toxic ink pad, which worked very well but obviously was a pain to clean up. Was hoping this would be cleaner and easier, but it was very difficult getting a good paw print and the ink only lasted for 2-3 pieces of paper. Ended up just throwing it away and will need to figure out another solution. Don't waste your money

Easy to use

I haven’t had any trouble figuring out how to use it. It’s pretty simple even though there aren’t instructions. I’ve made probably 10 prints so far and I’m still getting use out of my first ink pad. It’s certainly much easier than actually inking a paw pad and dealing with that mess. Making the cats print was the hardest and that’s only because it’s a cat and they don’t ever want to do anything that isn’t their idea. Making ink prints of paws takes practice. It’s rarely a one and done but some times you get lucky. This product makes it much easier because it takes the mess away from re-do’s. I’ll order it again. It also was super awesome to use to send my kiddo her buddies paw prints in a card in her care package at college. It’s easy and mess free. Buy it.

Didn’t work

Attempted on my (elderly) shih tzu who has a lot of hair around her paws and it was unfortunately a fail. Disappointed since I purchased multiple for family members to have before her passing, but you can’t really tell what it is.

Not For Large Dogs

Instructions are not very clear, but it is pretty easy once you figure out. Definitely not for large dogs! Our English Mastiff's paw doesn't remotely fit on it. I'm glad I only purchased 1 (not for all of our dogs) to try out

The trick: Tape ink pad to paper

It took me 5 tries to figure this out, so there is plenty of ink to repeated impressions. I was trying to get a paw print from my guinea pig. First two times, I placed him on it, then lifted him off = smudge. Then I had him walk across it = not enough pressure. Then I tried inviting him to stand on it = not bad, still smudged though. Finally I scotch taped the ink pad corners to the paper, placed his front paws on it and pressed down gently, then lifted him off. Perfection!!!!! The ink pad is quite small. It clearly shows you which side goes toward the paper, so your pet doesn't get ink on their paws. The borders of the ink pad are very slick, so the pad slides easily on the cards provided which smudges your print attempts.

decent for the price

after reading the reviews I knew I only had 2-3 opportunities for a good paw impression. instructions though sparse, made sense - there’s a plastic side and an inking side. first dog was cooperative (bottom print) top right was the 4th inking (3rd try with the second dog).

Worked well enough

I bought this to give to my husband for his birthday along with a picture of our dog. I got a decent paw print out of it, however, if your dog/cat moves around even a little bit while you're doing the print, it's going to smudge and streak. I'm happy with how mine turned out for the price.
