About Us

Lydia & Pugs all started with the love of a pug named Lydia. She is the inspiration behind the brand. What began as an idea with a fat pug leading the way, turned into a thriving small business that people everywhere soon fell in love with. Lydia & Pugs paper goods are available nationwide at Anthropologie stores. 

Lydia & Pugs is a stationery and gift boutique based in Orlando, FL. Dawn Armstrong, is the owner and creator behind the brand. With a background in interior design, as well as, advertising and public relations, these were the necessary tools needed to create her own stationery line and eventually branch out to other creative possibilities.

We specialize in hand-drawn watercolor designs of whimiscal pet related illustrations. Our unique and colorful work appeals to a large audience especially animal enthusiasts. From sketchbook to editing to the print process to packaging, we are very much involved in every step of the process. Lydia & Pugs strongly believes that the best gifts are the one's that contain thought and care, a personalized gift that tells a story and has meaning. We hope these are the gifts you'll find at Lydia & Pugs. Dawn resides in sunny Florida with her husband Chris and pug puppy Sprinkles.
