Dear Craig Thanks for your mentorship.
How does (or did) custom bears have anything to do with a "christian aspect?"
These custom bears have spiritual quotes all ready embedded on the back.
God Bless Dad Bear
Honor your father and mother--which is the first commandment with a promise. - Ephesians 6:2
My big question is how does this site differentiate, or distinguish from such larger sites as Vermont Teddy bears? That`s going to be a heavy competitor, with their national marketing on radio and all. What would you say to me, for example, to convince me to buy a bear from you as opposed to them?
To convince the buyer to buy I would add that Our Custom Bears (or other plush item/mascot) are a great Fundraiser, Reward, Donation Gift, etc.
They also help build your brand in the Community
