About Lovepop

Make every occasion magical.

Founded by best friends and naval architects, John Wise and Wombi Rose, Lovepop creates beautiful laser-cut pop-up cards designed on ship-building software and handcrafted in the ancient art form of kirigami.

Lovepop is on a mission to create one billion magical moments by making it easy to do something creative and meaningful for the people you love.

Available online, at retail locations across the U.S., and via thousands of third party retailers, our products create a memorable, shared connection between giver and receiver - a meaningful, beautiful, unexpected or seemingly impossible experience. That’s a magical moment.

Since earning an investment from Kevin "Mr. Wonderful" O'Leary on ABC's "Shark Tank" in 2015, Lovepop has created hundreds of designs to help make every occasion magical - whether it’s a birthday, holiday, anniversary, or any milestone for someone you love.   

Our founders

Wombi Rose and John Wise, Lovepop Founders
Wombi Rose and John Wise became best friends at Webb Institute training to become naval architects. On a Harvard Business School trip to Vietnam, Wombi and John discovered the incredible paper art form of kirigami and were inspired. The duo took their engineering background and combined this ancient art with the sliceform structure used in ship design to develop Slicegami™, and Lovepop was born.
