What is a Fingerprint Tree?

The  Fingerprint Tree, also referred to as a Wedding Tree or Thumbprint Tree  is a unique and creative alternative guestbook to the standard traditional guestbook.  It is a image of a bare tree which guest literally leaf (leave) their fingerprints. The leaves on the tree are formed and created with the actual fingerprints of your guest. Guest then sign their name on, below or above their fingerprint.  The final result of the Fingerprint Tree is a beautiful keepsake and amazing piece of art that you can frame and display in your home and cherish forever.

Although the Fingerprint Tree was first used for weddings, as its popularity increased, today, they are used for various events and occasions, including but not limited to; Weddings,  Anniversaries, Family Reunions, Family Trees, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, Births, Christenings, Milestone Birthdays, Retirements, Graduations, Housewarmings, Holidays, Corporate, Church Events and much more.  Fingerprint Trees can be used for any event or special occasion.

What size do I print my Fingerprint Tree?

That is totally up to you and will depend on the number of guest and attendees. The size of the Thumbprints/ fingerprints of your attendees is also a factor to take in consideration. Therefore, if you are unsure, it’s best to go with a larger size print.

We offer 5 sizes in either rectangular or square shape prints.
10×14.1 or 12×12 (up to 60 guest)
15×21.2 or 18×18 (up to 100 guest)

What kind of ink pads should I use?

Choose ink pads that are archival inks, fast drying and fade resistance.  We recommend Tsukineko Memento ink pads or a similar archival-quality ink pad.  Get them here:

Is It Messy? If so, will this deter my guest from participating?

No! Just be sure to have wet wipes and perhaps a towel or disposable towels/towelettes available so guest can removed the ink from their fingers immediately.  In addition, have a bin or basket available for the used wipes.  Lastly be sure to have someone assigned to let guest know the process as well as to facilitate and coordinate the fingerprinting process.

In regard to the lack of participation due to ink, we have several testimonies of adults who got an absolute kick out of the Fingerprint Tree activity once they understood the significance.   If you’re still on the fence about it, as an option,  you might want to consider getting leaf-shaped stamp pads and just having guest use it and then sign their name.



What kind of ink pens should I use?

We recommend the following pens or pens of similar quality with regard to  pigment ink, acid-free, archival quality, fast drying, waterproof, fadeproof and non-bleeding:  Sakura Pigma Micron, Zig Memory System Millennium, Zig Photo Signature, Promaster Archival Marking Pen.   However, please test, test, test, test and test… as ink performs different on different paper.  Reference our “How It Works” page.

How do I set up for my event?

Reference our “Fingerprint Tree Setup” page.   It’s like the real estate agents’ mantra: location, location, location.  You want your Fingerprint Tree Guestbook to be placed in a highly accessible location.  An idea would be to have it where attendees can “sign” it through the course of the event, rather than all at once. So make sure your guests can see and access your Fingerprint Tree Guestbook at any time.






Will the colors on my print be the same as those on my computer?

Because individual monitors and device settings vary from device to device, we cannot guarantee this.  A professional printer can assist you with this.

What if I want a color or font you don’t have?

We welcome your creativity!  While we constantly add new tree templates, colors, fonts and enhancements to the system and offer a sufficient amount of colors to match any color scheme, if you have a particular color which we don’t yet have included in our Fingerprint Tree Generator, simply contact us with the specifics.  We’ll have our programmers add it.  This applies for a particular font as well.

UPDATE (January 2016):  You can now make the font any color you desire.  This same functionality for Templates/trees is forthcoming.

Will My Fingerprint Tree Grow?

Yes, it will!  You will start off with a bare Fingerprint Tree that will be watered and nourished with love by each guest when they each stamp their fingerprints and sign their names; thus causing your tree to grow, bloom and blossom into an absolutely beautiful work of art.
