Ramona & Ruth (formerly Paper Lovely) is a boutique paper goods company with a focus on simply sweet, delicate designs. All of our products are created in the Midwest with high quality materials and the utmost attention to every detail.
In 2009, founder Kim Burks acquired her very first antique letterpress and started printing her hand drawn illustrations in the spare bedroom of her home in Omaha, Nebraska. Over the past 7 years, the studio has grown to include a Golding Pearl letterpress from the late 1800’s, a Heidelberg Windmill from the mid 1900’s, and an antique Paragon paper cutter.
Ramona & Ruth is named after Kim’s grandmothers who embodied the entrepreneurial spirit themselves. Ramona was a florist who started and ran her own flower shop and Ruth was the wife of a farmer who could be found tending to the cows and feeding chickens. Both were hardworking, dedicated women who helped cultivate Kim’s passion for developing her own business.
At Ramona & Ruth, clean design with a lasting impression is our specialty. We strive to make beautiful, quality products that add a bit of happiness to the everyday. We love creating products that make you smile, and it is our hope that you are able to spread this same feeling to others through the special gift of a handwritten note.
Ramona & Ruth has been featured in Brides Magazine, Country Living, Midwest Living, Design*Sponge, Refinery 29, Style Me Pretty, Cool Mom Picks, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper Crave & more.
