How We Got Started
In early 2009, Jill found herself in her basement, with a 1 ton hunk of iron, a macbook and a vision. She had always wanted to own her own business and early ideas spanned from a gymnastics studio to a dog kennel – can you imagine! Much to her parents relief I suppose, she headed back to her creative roots and true passion : paper & design. After spending a solid couple of years creating and growing her Internationally sold wedding line, she decided to bring on partner, Brian Shephard, to take her dream to the next level. Together, they gave Ruff House Art a facelift along with a new wardrobe and the retail line was born. It has been a fast paced roller coaster since, with a daily fury of filling orders balanced with creating new and exciting products. Keep your eye on Ruff House Art! You haven’t seen the last of us.
What You Can Expect
Ruff House Art carefully selects all of our paper stock and printing methods based on quality, environmental impact & printability. With each order, you can expect reliability, craft and professionalism. We offer digitally printed stationery as an affordable and sometimes necessary option, however letterpress is our speciality. All of our products are printed locally and we have our own in-house letterpress machines. Printing and assembly are all done by our in-house production team making 100% of our products 100% Made in the USA.
