Our Memory Bears are approximately 25cm when sitting and 35cm when standing.

How are photos and Text add to the bears
At SandyRose bears we use a printing technique called sublimation that allows for full colour printing. Your artwork or treasured photo is printed onto a sheet of specialised release paper and transferred onto our specialist fabric using a heat press which applies heat and pressure. The heat converts the solid dye particles into a gas — known as sublimation — and bonds them to the polymer coatings on the fabric. This technique allow us to copy and transfer to exact image or handwriting requested
we can also offer an embroidered name or message instead
If you would like a sonogram/ultrasound or hand/footprint photo added to your bear please contact us
