Howdy, Bear Artists!

We're thrilled to have you on board for some colorful adventures at Bear With Us. Before we dive into the paint, here are a few friendly guidelines to ensure everyone has a roaring good time:

1. Only Perfect Bears Allowed: Let's keep it fair and square. We want everyone to have the best painting experience, so we ensure that the base bears you are assigned are in perfect condition. No defected bears, please! Each canvas deserves to shine.

2. Speedy Bear Pick-Up: Your masterpieces will be ready for cuddles within 48 to 72 hours. We get it, you're excited! Please aim to pick up your bears within 10 business days. We'll do our best to drop you a text, but sometimes the bears play hide and seek with phone numbers. After 72 hours, you're safe to assume your bears are ready or slide into our DMs on Instagram for confirmation.

3. Insta-Quick Communication: Need to reach us in a bear's blink? Our Instagram DMs are the express lane. It's our fastest way to chat and ensures you get the info you need pronto.

4. Uniquely Fluid Art: Just like every bear has its own personality, your painted bears might dry slightly differently. No worries, it's all part of the fluid art magic. But we promise, it's pretty much like the original pattern's awesome twin.

5. Bear Refunds (Almost Unbearably Rare): We want your bear experience to be as smooth as a bear's fur. If, by some wild twist of fate, your bear is severely damaged upon pick-up, let us know. However, we have the best bear employees in the world so they would usually pick up on anything before you've even seen them! In the rare instance, we'll summon the manager and sort out a refund. We've got your back!

6. Unhappy Bear Situations: If you stumble upon any hiccups or quirks with your bear when you're picking it up, give our staff a heads-up. We're all about solving things right then and there, ensuring you leave with a grin as wide as a bear's picnic spread.

7. Bears on the Loose: Once those bears step outside our cozy haven, they're on their grand adventure with you. Sadly, any issues that might arise after leaving the premises can't be refunded. We'll miss them dearly, but they're all yours!

Thanks for painting with us! We can't wait to see your bears come to life. If you have any questions, remember, our DMs are always open.

8. Embrace Your Bear's Uniqueness: At Bear With Us, each bear is as unique as a pawprint! You've got one shot to create a masterpiece that's authentically yours. We believe in celebrating the quirks and charm in every stroke, so remember, no bear re-dos here. Cherish your bear's one-of-a-kind magicβ€”it's what makes each cuddly friend extra special!
