Our Story: From Beagle Love to Ecommerce Business

In the heart of every creation at Moxie Graphics is a tale of love, laughter, and a beagle named Moxie who left paw prints on our hearts and an indelible mark on our online business.


A Soul Mate with Paws

For some, a soul mate is found in another person. For me, I found mine in a dog - Moxie, the beagle with the sassiest face that ever existed turned out to be the foundation for our sarcastic designs. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call her a soul mate with paws. She was more than just a pet; she was a companion, a source of constant inspiration, and a reflection of pure, unadulterated love. Her personality was a paradox wrapped in a furry package - craving love and attention while simultaneously being the master of side-eye and aloofness.


The Spirit of Moxie

Moxie was animated, full of life, and had a unique way of communicating without saying a word just like our snarky gifts. Her expressions were priceless - especially her top-notch side-eye, which could convey a thousand words. Her spirit was infectious, and her presence was a constant reminder of the joy and humor that life holds. Moxie Graphics is, thus, our way of materializing this beagle love.


Inspiration and Legacy

Sadly, Moxie's time on earth was shorter than we would have liked, and her absence left a void. But in that space, Moxie Graphics was born offering fun and witty products. Many might consider it as a tribute to a pet, but it began as a way to channel our love for her, to keep her spirit alive. The ethos of our brand - fun, snarky, and light-hearted - is a direct reflection of Moxie's personality. She taught us to find humor in the mundane, to seek joy in the little things, and to express ourselves unabashedly and became the inspiration for our online business.


A Reflection in Every Design

Each of the sarcastic designs we create at Moxie Graphics carries a piece of her. When we pair flowers with swear words or craft a witty one-liner for a magnet, it's Moxie's spirit we channel. Her love for attention, albeit on her own terms, inspires our approach to these snarky designs - to stand out, to be bold, and yet, to maintain a certain charm and elegance.


Moxie Graphics: More Than a Brand

Moxie Graphics is not just an ecommerce business; it's a tribute. It’s a reminder that love can take different forms and that sometimes, the most profound connections we make are with those who don't speak our language. Moxie was not just a beagle; she was a muse, a motivator, and the heart and soul behind what we do.


Forever in Our Hearts and Work

Every day, we miss her and her side-eye humor. But we find comfort in knowing that through Moxie Graphics, her legacy lives on. She continues to bring smiles, laughter, and a dash of sass to homes around the world, just as she did in ours.

So, when you bring a piece of Moxie Graphics into your life, know that you’re not just getting a product. You’re getting a piece of a story, a fragment of a heart, and a sprinkle of the spirit of a beagle who was, and always will be, so much more than just a pet. She was our Moxie, our inspiration, our soul mate with paws.
