Grown from a love of paper, Poodle & Pip is the creation of Lauren Silvester. 

“I’ve always had a love of paper and stationery. From as early as I can remember I’ve taken great pleasure collecting notebooks and journals, most of which I still have piled to the ceiling. As a child I’d spend hours making exercise books and writing novels at my Nan’s house which tipped over into my career at magazines and inserts later in life. 

My passion for creating notecards collections grew when I designed and produced my own wedding invitations – a garden themed a6 extra thick notecard with floral motifs and green/white pastel stripes. I’m normally that person who spends ages trying to find the perfect thank you card to send loved ones, then I end up taking too long to choose the right card resulting in no card being sent – so I thought what better way to combine my passions and set up Poodle & Pip. Giving people boxes of personalised notecards means you’ll never run out of time again.”
