Frequently Asked Questions
When fingerprints are collected and submitted by a partner funeral home or crematory, the images are stored in our secure database and made available to the funeral home and family for memorial keepsakes, with a unique, alpha-numeric Personal Identification Number (PIN) assigned to the fingerprints. The family or funeral home may then use the PIN to order keepsakes here on LTKeepsakes.com. This unique PIN ensures that the fingerprints used are the correct ones. Just so you can be absolutely sure, we ask you to validate your PIN each time you order and allow you to confirm your Loved One's initials and the funeral home or crematory you are working with.
Fingerprints are securely stored in our database in perpetuity and your PIN is always available for ordering personalized keepsakes to honor the memory of your Loved One.
For security purposes, the fingerprints in our system are not available to the public for viewing. Should you wish to view your Loved One's prints, please contact your funeral home or crematory and they can assist you.
As a general rule, we do not share fingerprint images. We keep all identity information safe and protected on our secure servers. Everything stays between the family, funeral home, crematory, and Legacy Touch, unless required by law. In very limited instances, images may be made available to our affiliated technology partners to improve our internal systems and applications, but in such cases, all identifying information about who the prints belong to or where they came from is removed before the images are made available. The family, of course, may share fingerprints with whomever they wish.
Legacy Touch Keepsakes Products
Our fingerprint charms, pendants, dog tags, pocket knives, lapel pins, and more are all available on 24-hour turnaround ( click here for the complete list). If you select Express Delivery Service for any of those products before 12:00 pm Central Time, your order will be placed in our same-day manufacturing queue. The keepsakes you ordered will be hand-crafted to your specifications and shipped overnight. We do this to make them available for funerals and visitation services. Fingerprint keepsakes serve as remarkably moving reminders of the ways a Loved One touched the lives of others. Express Delivery Service guarantees a specific delivery date, while Standard Delivery dates are approximate.
That’s the idea behind our Express and Accelerated Delivery Services. We know of no other company that offers Next Business Day turnaround on personalized keepsakes. For orders that aren't quite as time-critical, but still need a specific delivery date, our Accelerated Delivery Service is great option as well. For gifts such as bookmarks or lapel pins, it’s especially important to be able to deliver multiple products in time for funerals and visitations. Our fingerprint pendants and charms, with inscriptions or monograms, are also eligible for these expedited services. Express and Accelerated Delivery Services guarantee a specific delivery date, while Standard Delivery dates are approximate.
Your beautiful keepsakes are quality heirlooms worth protecting. When not in use, we recommend storing them individually, in an airtight bag to guard from humidity. Avoid all chemicals (including chlorine), which can be damaging to fine metals. Lockets and urn pendants carry precious photos and ashes. For this reason, they should not be submerged in water. Quality jewelry should always be shielded from hairspray, bug spray, lotions, and swimming pools. Care for your keepsakes, and they will return the favor with many years of cherished comfort. For specific care instructions, see below or you can download or print the PDF version.
We use premium grade optical crystal to capture your Loved One’s image. Our crystals are lead-free, hardened, and highly polished. All crystal is fragile, and care should be used when handling. Crystals can be cleaned with mild glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Do not use household cleaners, paper towels, or any product with abrasives.
Lockets can be cleaned with a soft cloth. For other 14k gold keepsakes, use warm water and mild dish washing soap. Soak your 14k gold keepsake for 20-30 minutes in the solution. Gently clean with a soft cloth or a soft-bristled brush. Rinse with lukewarm water to remove any soap residue. Please, no chlorine or other harsh chemicals or abrasives.
Lockets and urn pendants can simply be wiped clean with a soft cloth, or a silver polishing cloth. Rub gently, following the grain of the silver. All other sterling silver keepsakes can be wiped clean–or treated with silver tarnish remover, following instructions. Tarnish remover should be followed with a warm soapy wash. Rinse well, and towel dry.
Stainless Steel & Titanium
To clean your stainless steel or titanium keepsakes, use lukewarm water and mild dish washing soap. Soak your keepsake in the solution for approx. 5 minutes and then gently buff with a soft cloth. Rinse and allow to dry. Tarnish can be cleaned with a jewelry polishing cloth. Please do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners.
To clean your polished brass keepsakes, use lukewarm water and mild dish washing soap. Soak your keepsake in the solution for approx. 5 minutes and then gently buff with a soft cloth. Rinse and allow to dry. Tarnish can be cleaned with a jewelry polishing cloth. Please do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners.
A Loved One's PIN, which uniquely identifies the fingerprint, is not required to purchase an eGift Card; however, a PIN will be required to order a fingerprint keepsake. The PIN is created by our partner funeral homes when they upload the prints into our system. Please check with the family to ensure that a PIN exists before purchasing a Legacy Touch eGift Card.
If a PIN does not exist for any reason, but fingerprints of the deceased Love One are available from another source (eg. from military or hospital records, etc.), please contact us for assistance in uploading those prints and creating a PIN.
An eGift Card functions just the same as a regular, physical gift card or gift certificate, where an amount is pre-loaded on the card and then redeemed for merchandise. However, eGift Cards have several great advantages, including:
No problem. Simply enter your own email address in the fields above and the eGift Card will be sent to you. Once you receive the email, you can print and hand-deliver it at your convenience.
Legacy Touch eGift Cards never expire. However, if there has been no activity for a period of two years, we may charge a small inactivity fee of $2.00 per month, subject to federal and state laws and regulations.
No. eGift Cards are only redeemable for products and services on our website, www.LTkeepsakes.com.
eGift Cards are redeemed on our website, at www.LTkeepsakes.com/redeem using the following steps:
*If you don't purchase right away, that's OK - your balance is safely tied to your new customer account. When you're ready to purchase, just make sure you are signed into your account and your balance will automatically be applied to your order when you check out.
Lost or stolen eGift Cards cannot be replaced, so please protect them as is they were cash. If the eGift Card did not get delivered for any reason, please call Customer Service toll free at (855) 802-6800 as soon as possible.
We work very hard with our email providers to make sure that our emails get delivered with a high degree of reliability. However, sometimes our emails get blocked or flagged as spam or junk by highly sensitive filters. Please have the recipient check their junk/spam folder and make sure that "ltkeepsakes.com" is on their list of allowed senders (whitelist).
If you had the eGift Card emailed directly to the recipient, you should have received an emailed copy of all the pertinent details for the eGift Card (recipient email, gift code, gift amount, etc.) in addition to your order confirmation email. This let's you know that the delivery system has successfully sent out the email to the address you provided. If you didn't receive these details, or you made a mistake in the recipient's email address, please call Customer Service toll free at (855) 802-6800 as soon as possible with your order number and email addresses.
No, our eGift Cards cannot be reloaded or have value added to them. However, it's just as easy to purchase another one and multiple eGift Cards can be redeemed on a single order.

Shipping, Warranties, & Returns
Currently, we ship Legacy Touch Keepsakes to the United States and Canada, but we welcome other international inquiries. Please Contact Us to inquire about special shipping arrangements.
Shipping charges vary based on order contents and destination and are calculated in checkout. Many of our keepsakes offer the option of Express or Accelerated delivery service. If you select one of our expedited delivery services, a $20 Express Production Fee or $10 Accelerated Production Fee per keepsake will be added to the price.
The $20 per item Express Fee ($10/item Accelerated) only covers the expedited production and manufacturing of your unique, personalized keepsake. Each piece must go through multiple steps of layout, setup, proofing, engraving, polishing and packaging before it is shipped and to get all of this done the same day (if ordered before 12:00 pm Central time) is quite an accomplishment! The shipping charges, which are calculated in checkout, cover the cost of sending your order via tracked, insured courier (FedEx).
When your order ships depends on many factors, including product(s) ordered, overall order volume and when the order was placed. Once your order ships, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number that will allow you to determine the exact date of delivery. Most of our products can be delivered in about a week, but a few of our keepsakes take a little more time. Many are also eligible for Express Delivery Service which delivers orders placed before 11:00am Central Time by the next business day. For our customers in the Kansas City metro area that choose local pickup, Customer Service will contact you directly to let you know when your order is ready to be picked up.
