About how long does it take to get?
We try to deliver your bear or bears in 8-12 weeks, pillows in 4-6 weeks, throws in 4-6 weeks, and quilts in 12-16 weeks. If your item is needed for a special occasion we will try to accommodate.
How many Bears can be made from a stole?
Most mink stoles, depending on the size, will usually make 1 Large Bear, 2 Medium Bears, or 3 Small Bears.
How do you determine what size bears you can make?
We call you when we receive the fur to discuss the details. The size depends on the number of bears you want and the amount of fur you send. We use all of the fur to make the largest bears possible with your fur.
Why are all the bears the same price?
Our labor is basically the same whether we are making a Small, Medium, Large, or X-Large Bear. If you are ordering a ready-made bear and we are supplying the fur, there is a price differential.
What happens if the fur is not in good condition?
We’ve had very few furs that were not workable. All our bears are inner-lined to take the strain off the fur.
What if I don’t have fur to send to you to create a bear?
We have ready-made mink bears available using our fur for an additional cost.
What if the fur had not been in storage?
In all probability, it will be fine.
If I have more than one fur, can they be combined?
Yes, we can mix furs and colors if they are complementary.
How do you personalize Memory Bears?
Names or initials can be embroidered on the paw pads.
Can the initials or name in the lining be placed on a paw pad of a fur bear?
Bears can be personalized with the initials or name on a foot or hand paw.
What if the name or initials are too big to be put on a paw pad?
We make a removable bib that ties around the neck of the bear, or it can be placed on the back of the bear for a surcharge.
How do you determine which neckties go where?
We work out a pattern that we feel is complementary. If you have a preference or if one tie is significant, let us know and we will place it in front on the belly.
