SoWa Vendor Spotlight: LOVE POP

I'm sure you've seen these quirky origami-like cards around New England, but a Lovepop is more than just a greeting card, it's some serious love in an envelope.

The intricate 3D paper sculptures are designed by naval engineers on cutting edge software and then hand-crafted in the Asian art form of slice form kirigami. Whether it’s a wedding or a birthday, if you’re saying thanks (for not mentioning that thing that happened in Vegas) or celebrating (a co-worker’s compulsive love of cats), they’ve got you covered.

Lovepop founders Wombi Rose and John Wise became best friends at Webb Institute training to become naval architects. After school, the duo traveled to Vietnam where they discovered incredible hand-crafted paper cards. They headed back to Boston and put the cards in the hands of friends, family, and strangers--and watched. That moment when someone opened a card and saw the paper sculpture revealed for the first time became their obsession, and Lovepop was born.

The two launched Lovepop out out of the Harvard Innovation Lab in late 2014. Since then, they were named to the 2015 Techstars class, nominated for 50 on Fire by BostInno, gained the confidence of professional investors, and have been featured on The View, Shark Tank, Good Morning America and more!
