I‘m a big stationery lover—having ways to record, share and organize information that doesn’t take place on a computer screen feels very soothing. My favorite part of each new semester was smoothing down the first blank page of a crisp notebook and writing the name of the course in my neatest handwriting, using a brand-new pencil or a fresh pen. These stationery accessories make me wish I were headed back to school in a few weeks (well, almost)!
Upper right: Lucky Rice’s (桔禾創意) Remarks magnets highlight important info while serving as an eco-friendly reminder to recycle your memos; middle: Duo’s Watch Me cards can be sent as invitations (write the time of your shindig on the watch face); bottom right: If you are like me and have a gazillion pair of scissors hiding in your house, you’ll appreciate Duo’s Anything set, which come with a standing holder for your cutting implements. Right: Use Tuck Shop’s Like clips on happy notes—or flip them over to thumbs-down something!
Above right: Bats are a lucky symbol in Chinese culture. I like how Dawoo-design’s magnets look like traditional paper cuttings—but I also love them because they look like bright red licorice candy! Above left: Stamp tiny eyeglasses next to important items (or onto photos of people). These are by Sha-Z, whose Pinkoi shop is enabling my raging stamp addiction. Middle: A Balance Wu Design’s Eraser-ing sure would have come in handy when I was doing my Chinese homework. Bottom left: Ichihan’s wooden tape dispensers are cute, practical and look like hungry Pac-Men.
All of these items are listed on Pinkoi, which now has an English front page and a handy Chinese-to-English translation tool on each listing.
