Dear Laughing Dog Studios Friends~ We ask that you please read thru here.

We are doing what we can to best implement the guidelines in the extremely important united fight against the COVID-19 virus in our community. As of MONDAY MARCH 16, we will continue to conduct our business, but we will not have our doors open to the public. We are still able to operate our custom apparel printing studio and all the processes involved-including garment choices, ordering, design proofing, payment-can be conducted by phone, website and email. We can arrange for curbside pick up of orders, local delivery or shipment. Our Gift Shop will be closed to the public but we can also arrange for purchases from our gift shop in similar fashion. Our Art Gallery will be closed to public viewing as well. We will be "exhibiting" works from our current art show thru our fb page so please check in for that. At this time, the Downtown Harrisonburg April First Friday event for Friday April 3rd has been cancelled.

We are operating with a small staff of just 2 family members, but we are taking extra steps in sanitation on site and at home. We will work from home as much as possible and therefore our on site hours will be limited until further notice. We ask that you be patient with us and know that we will respond to your inquiries as soon as possible. For the the quickest response, please email us at All these new guidelines for our operation will be enforced until further notice.

If you are in need of our services, please let us know. We would be happy and most grateful for your continued support, well wishes, and good positive united action in this fight as we strive to continue to operate and live safely in support of those like ourselves who have their families health, businesses, wages, rent, utilities, suppliers, health insurance and on and on at stake here. Thank you for all your support of our small family business for 30 years. Do what you can to support those who need it in anyway that you can. Be loving...we love you~the laughing dogs
