Ruff House Art



 About Ruff House

Ruff House Art is a letterpress stationery brand & print studio located in Lawrence, Kansas.


In early 2009, Jill Shephard 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 the timing was right. She created a handful of wedding suites, put them online, and Ruff House Art was born.


After spending a couple of years creating and growing her Internationally sold wedding line, she brought on partner, later turned husband, Brian, to take her dream to the next level. Together, they grew Ruff House Art and the retail line was born.


Jill is inspired by her everyday life. Her husband and their friendship, her daughter and her laughter and the stationery industry and all the talented folks in it. Driven by the desire to make a positive impression on her daugher so she’ll learn the value of hard work and determination. The sky is the limit. Lots of coffee, tears, laughter and stress can create magical things.


They have been creating wedding invitations, greeting cards and Eco-friendly paper goods since 2009.  Their paper stock and printing methods are based around quality, environmental impact and print-ability, with a goal of providing reliability, craft & professionalism. All products are printed in-house or locally, with all design and assembly done by their in-house team making 100% of their products 100% made in the USA.


Ruff House Art’s designs and products have been seen in Better Homes & Gardens, Food & Wine, BRIDES, Stationery Trends, Gift Shop Magazine, Giftware News, Coastal Living, Country Living, The Knot and Town & Country. You can purchase their products at stores around the world from the US to Canada & even Australia.
