April is National Card and Letter Writing Month, which means a whole month to celebrate the art of snail mail! What better way to celebrate than to send some fandom-themed mail to brighten up someone’s day? Here are seven shops to find some fandom-based/themed stationery items for your geeky delight.
Fandom lovers can unite with designs created by Princess Destiny at her shop Pixal Dust. From notable cartoons such as Craig of the Creek to general Kawaii aesthetic stickers, this shop has such a variety to choose from. Whether you want to purchase some stickers for yourself or for your pen pals, Destiny has a sticker selection for you. She is an artist and graphic designer who loves creating art for people who enjoy fandoms just like her!
Are you an avid reader that loves to get lost in a good book? Check out BareBookish which is run by shop owner Manpreet. She carries a variety of bookish goods such as bookmarks and some very cute bookish-themed stationery. Some of this stationery will definitely appeal to fans of popular book series like ACOTAR, Six of Crows, and Shadow & Bone to name a few. A lot of items to decorate your bookish stationery and book review journals.
K-pop has a large growing fandom as a whole and for each individual group/soloist as well. Why not send a card to a fellow friend who is also a K-Pop fan? Erin’s colorful designs in her shop Hello Hanguk are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face and she carries a multitude of groups from BTS to G-IDLE. These cards are a fun way to brighten any K-Pop fan’s day!
Wish Upon Magic
This colorful and vibrant Etsy shop has many magical designs that would appeal to the Disney fandom. Run by shop owner Ada, Wish Upon Magic’s stickers are water-proof & weather-resistant. You can decorate your bottles, phones, cars, and of course stationery! A portion of proceeds from every purchase is donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I love the transparency of these stickers so they can blend in on any surface.
Do you love to watch anime? Then YumePop’s store by Jessica may pique your interest. From classic shojo magical girls like Cardcaptor Sakura and characters from Toilet Bound Hanako Kun, this shop has some very cute anime designs. Jessica states that she is inspired by San-x and Sanrio stationery, and I can really see that same kawaii aesthetic applied to all of her lovely designs.
Another anime fandom entry on this list! PalletTownPrints has all of the Pokemon designs so that you “gotta catch’em all”. Sara has creations of make types of stationery goods for any Poke fan. There are cards that feature a multitude of different Pokemon that you can send via snail mail for any special occasion such as a birthday or just a way to say hello!
Looking for the cute and cozy aesthetic of comfy video games? Tanpopo House by Amy features many designs from the popular game Animal Crossing. I love the watercolor style used for all the designs. Amy truly does capture the charm of these adorable characters. Additionally, the shop’s sticker sheets are waterproof and dishwasher-safe vinyl which means you can put them on multiple surfaces!
