Co-founders Wombi Rose and John Wise became friends at Webb Institute training to become naval architects. After school, they realized that they could apply the same engineering skills they used in constructing boats to paper art. They fell in love with making intricate 3D paper sculptures, and developed slicegamiā„¢ to bring them to life as cards. When they shared the cards with friends and family, the reaction was spectacular, and Lovepop was born.
