Our products are handmade with love. Our materials have been carefully chosen and are used at each location across Canada.
Is a form of custom dental alginate that is a safe, quick casting material used by dentists to make impression of your mouth. It is safe to eat, hypoallergenic and compostable.
Raised Impression Material:
Is a clay that has been custom softened for us to allow for delicate impressions. Clay when used wet/soft is not hazardous.
Is used after any mould or impression is taken therefore it never comes into contact with your baby’s skin. It is an upgrade from a standard plaster product to one that has a higher degree of hardness and impact resistance.
Our mold putty can be used with chocolate, food, wax, soap, polymer clay, ice, and even resin. It is non-toxic and certified to be safe for use with food.
Due to the possibility of our suppliers and materials changing without notice, we cannot guarantee the ingredients used in our materials to not be altered or changed at any given time. Although adverse reactions are extremely rare, due to the level and number of allergies and/or reactions to even natural substances today, we suggest that if you have any concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How is WP Creations Improving our Carbon Footprint?
WP Creations is proud to be taking steps in the right direction to reduce our carbon footprint.
We are in the business of creating keepsakes of moments in time which makes us all too familiar on how quickly time goes by. If we want our kids to grow up in an environmentally safe world, we need to act fast. We are determined to take steps to reduce waste which also comes at a cost savings to our franchise partners.
Here are some of the changes we have made over the last little while and look forward to continuing to make changes wherever possible.
We are using up the last of any plastic bags and are moving to paper bags for pick up. They are recyclable and biodegradable and have been weight tested to support the needs of carrying our precious products.
Mixing our moulding material and cement is as much of an art as a science and plays a key roll in the success of our ability to lifecast. We will be transitioning our artists from the mix-in-bag technique to mix in bowl or a mix in biodegradable bag technique thus reducing the need to for poly bags. It is common practice in the art industry therefore it will allow our artists to have even smoother materials to work with. Our kits currently require the poly bag process until an alternative is found. A biodegradable bag is not recommended for the kits due to the air pressure often getting caught in the bag risking it to break when mixing.
We are making changes in the plastics we use to cast with to ensure they are more widely recyclable. We currently re use our plastics therefore are not single use but we recognize for our kits, that they are single use. Therefore, we have begun substituting many of our plastics so that they may be recycled in most communities.
It is important to us that we provide all the necessary packaging to help keep your jewelry long lasting therefore a jewelry cloth and a small plastic bag to keep your sterling silver stored in when not being warn is still provided. We have however moved from organza bags that are usually made from silk or polyester to a burlap bag that is eco-friendly, disposable and biodegradable.

We are currently researching affordable and environmentally friendly cello/poly bags for our marketing material packages.
Our previous business model had each location driving around to several stores or shipping in from several locations supplies that were needed to maintain the business. Now with bulk orders and most items being available directly through our head office, we have reduced the amount of unnecessary driving and shipping. This has also saved our franchisees with young children time and convenience.
