About us

Company Profile


Grizzly Bear was started in January 2013 by Carl & Lisa Obern.

The Company specializes in custom made signs and promotional materials for businesses and individuals. Our aim is to produce high quality products at affordable prices.

To date our main focus has been to produce items for the Equestrian market but we have recently started producing signs and promotional items for Charities and local Government.

Some of our signs have been sent to Germany, Canada and Ireland.

Although we are a small family run business, we have the capabilities to undertake any size job and will do so with the utmost care and attention to detail. Whether it is a Stable Door sign for your daughters pony or custom designed signage for your business or vehicle, we would be happy to discuss your needs with you.

About Carl & Lisa Obern

We live and work in rural Cumbria, within a stone’s through of the Scottish Borders. Our home and business is a lovely 300 year old farmhouse and buildings set amongst a stunning landscape. Animals are very important to us as we have gathered quite a menagerie over the years. We currently have three Border Collies, about twenty rare breed chickens, Guinea Pigs and two horses. One of our horses is an 18 hand Shire horse called Helen.

Carl is a registered Farrier and has spent most of his working life around horses and still enjoys shoeing. Lisa is a country girl through and through and has enjoyed horses all her life. They both run their own successful Farriery business.
