A perfect @Example of our work...

A few months ago we were contacted by the O2 Academy to produce some custom designed 'Cinema Marquee Prints' to be displayed in O2 Academy dressing rooms across the country, promoting their various Twitter handles to the world famous bands and artists that play there. 

Here is a photo that musician 'Example' uploaded to his instagram account (@example) - posing with one of the framed prints before their gig at the O2 Academy Bournemouth last week...

Adventure time...

Our latest prints have been inspired by those adventures shared with a loved one. It doesn't matter how big or small. From swimming with dolphins to making mud pies in the garden, these prints are all about remembering the good times and making everyday memorable.

With Father's Day in mind, first up is our Personalised 'Adventure' Print. With Dad as the main adventurer, this print rewards badges for each of Dad's adventures, either alone, or with a child. The title can be changed to suit anybody - couples, friends, or a lone adventurer!

 

 

Our new Personalised 'Our Adventures' Print takes on the same idea, but lists the adventures on a zig zag pattern that resembles a destination signpost. The proud adventurers names appear in a logo at the top. This print acts as great reminder that adventures do really happen here, there and everywhere!

I would run to you...

We all love a good love story and felt privileged when a customer chose to order one of our Personalised Coordinate Prints to commemorate a very unusual engagement. When we saw the text “ENGAGED, LONDON MARATHON 2014, MILE 17”, we couldn't help but get in touch to find out more - How exciting!

We get lots of orders for engagement and wedding gifts, but this proposal was a little different. The order was a gift for Laura and Craig who got engaged on Sunday 13th April 2014, during the London Marathon. To run the marathon in itself is a huge achievement, but imagine the adrenaline rushing around as Craig knew he was about to propose! 17 miles worth of anxiety… gosh.

We were able to use the exact coordinates where, down on one knee, Laura's answer to the all important question was of course “Yes!”.

We’re so happy we were able to create a print for such a momentous occasion and wish the couple a lifetime full of happiness.

And our next adventure... Marry Me?

We all like a bit of love and romance, so you can imagine how excited we were at Drifting Bear HQ when someone ordered one of our Personalised Memories Prints to be an integral part of their wedding proposal! 

We often receive many orders for prints to commemorate special occasions, but never before had one of our prints played such an important role in the main event! I think we all felt as nervous as if we were asking the big question ourselves… would she say “Yes”?

We waited with baited breath until we got the news we were all waiting for: ”It was a yes, just did it at the weekend! Very excited! She loved the print, thanks again.”

“Phew!” Big smiles all around and a few more “Ahh’s”!

We wanted to share the exciting news with you all, so asked the ‘husband-to-be’ to write us a few words. Here’s what he had to say:

“I had previously ordered a coordinates print from The Drifting Bear Co. (through Notonthehighstreet.com) as a wedding present for a friend. I was really pleased with their service and quality of the framed print.

After I had been so happy with the coordinates print, I had another look through The Drifting Bear Co. portfolio. I saw the Memories Print and thought that it would make an excellent way to propose to my girlfriend! The design was brilliant and I loved the attention to detail.

I wrapped the framed print as an anniversary gift, so my girlfriend wasn’t expecting a proposal. When she came to read the line at the bottom, I had a ring ready to pop the question!

After ten years together I was pretty sure it would be a ‘yes’, but you never know!

I did get the answer I was hoping for and am so pleased that I chose The Drifting Bear Co. to design the print. Everyone comments on how amazing it looks, and it is so nice to have permanent reminder of the occasion on our wall at home.”

We’re so pleased we were asked to be involved in such a happy event and wish the happy couple all the love and luck in the world for their future together!

Here they are straight after the unique proposal, print in hand, ring on finger!

The ‘husband-to-be’, Mr Ian Olsson is not a stranger to a wedding or two, as he is a freelance wedding photographer. You can find his website here www.ianolsson.com
