The Craftville Bears

Bride and Groom Bears
By now many of you will have seen some of the designs in our new character set. We are really pleased with the Craftville Bears For a long time we have wanted to develop our own bears but it has proved a bit more difficult than we imagined. Whilst we fully support "copyright" it is remarkably difficult now-a-days to develop a bear character which doesn't resemble some other too closely.

If you think of all the bear designs in existence, many of which are covered by copyright. We have Paddington Bear, Winnie the Pooh, Rupert Bear, The Care Bears, Yogi, Ted and even Smokie. Add to that Bears which have appeared in films and TV but not necessarily as the main character; Baloo, Fozzi, Lots-O'-Huggin Bear (Toy Story), Teddy (A.I.) and lots lotsw more, I'm sure you can think of many more. So you can see how crowded the market has become for bear designs, I wonder if there will come a t time when no more are possible!

Anyway we are really pleased with our designs and we how to use it in a wide range of  situations and styles. So far we have a soilder bear and a nurse bear. These will soon be joined be a fireman bear, a lollypop bear ( sorry that may be confusing for the non-UK readers... crossing guard bear may explain it), bride and groom bears and many many more.

As with all of our papers these bear designs are completely free to download, print and use in your paper craft projects. We hope you like them as much as we do :-)
