My name is Emmy Severs, and I am a 2022 graduate of the John Chambers College of Business and Economics at West Virginia University. When I graduated with a major in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, I took my stationery company, Lemon Milk Paper Co, full time.

Lemon Milk Paper Co specializes in illustrated paper goods, stationery, stickers and other gifts. We are proud to be owned and operated in West Virginia. I design and illustrate all of my products and sell them through multiple channels including my online storefront and wholesale, which contributes to the majority of my sales. You can find Lemon Milk Paper Co stationery in retail stores across the country.
