Though the Rugg Road Paper Company of today stocks everything from greeting cards to bookbinding supplies, it began with only one product: handmade paper. From 1982 to 1994, the business inhabited a small studio, where its artist owners pedaled their unique paper exclusively to other artists and designers. But when the pair handed the reins to Amy Madanick and Casandra McIntyre in '94, not only did the location change—they moved to a stately brick row house on Charles Street, where the shop thrives to this day—the inventory and clientele did, as well. Of course, Rugg Road still caters to its artist clientele by stocking roughly 600 handmade papers from around the globe, but the shop also welcomes the general public to peruse its other paper products. From wedding invitations and photo albums to birthday cards and stationery, Amy and Casandra help customers sift through an impressive assortment, especially given the fact that the store only measures to 800 square feet, since that was the largest pad of paper the owners could find to use as a rug. Some of its finds include cards by Blonde, a design duo that goes heavy on soft pastels and flowers for birth announcements and wedding invites. Crane & Co., on the other hand, uses engraving, embossing, or letterpress printing to craft stationery formal enough for a sworn affidavit declaring innocence in the matter of the fridge's missing leftovers. The diverse collection of designers and products led _Boston Magazine_to name Rugg Road Paper Company the best place for stationery in 2008, 2009, and 2011.
