Frequently Asked Questions/FAQs

Q: How much material is required to create one bear?

A: It takes approximately ½ of a yard of fabric to make an 18” Memory Bear. You can either use one adult sized article of clothing per bear or you can combine multiple items to create one bear. In fact, depending on the clothing item and size of the bear ordered, it may be possible to get two bears out of one large clothing item. We can also supplement accent fabrics if your clothing item(s) isn’t enough to complete the number of bears you would like. Please contact us to discuss your order if you need more information regarding materials. 
 
Q: What types of materials work best to create a Memory Bear? 
A: We will make your Memory Bears out of any clothing and material you request, whatever is special to you. However, if you have a variety of clothing to choose from we suggest cotton weaves, denim, flannel, fleece, sweatshirts, terry and t-shirts as best choices. Please note that if we make your bear from a stretch knit fabric it will stretch to some degree when stuffed. For those with a limited selection of clothing, we'll work with whatever materials you may have.
 
Q: Can I add photos or copies of letters, poetry, etc. to my bears like some of the examples in your Portfolio page?
A: Yes, we can copy one or more of your photos, letters, etc. onto special fabric and then add them to the Memory Bear we make from your material (send us either an electronic image or a hard copy of your photos or documents). If interested contact us for further questions or pricing for this option. 
 
Q: Do you offer safety eyes for the bears?
A: While we typically use color coordinating buttons for the Memory Bear eyes, we are happy to make them with black safety eyes at your request. On the Ordering page there is a section which gives you the option to choose safety eyes at no extra charge.
 
Q: How long will it take to get my bears?

A: We will typically complete and ship your bears to you 4 to 6 weeks after we receive your materials with the exception of the couple months leading up to the December holidays when lead times may be extended due to the number of orders we receive.

 

Q: How will I know when my bears have been completed?

A: Once completed we will send you an e-mail to inform you that your bears are being shipped to you. We'll include the tracking number so you can follow the shipment's progress to your home if you choose to. 

 
Q: What types of payment do you accept?
A: You have the option to pay by credit card, PayPal, check or money order.
 
Q: Do you have gift certificates available?
A: Yes, contact us and we'll gladly to set it up for you.
