  • 7 Online feminine and pretty stationery shops that creates notebooks, planners, pens and more for girls all over the world. If you're a stationery lover, then this post is your dream destination for cute Stationery featuring Ban Do, Rifle Co, Orange Circle Studio and more.

Are you the type of girl that enters a store and immediately shoots across to the stationery section?


Then, we’re officially best friends now.

Because anyone who knows me knows that I’m a stationery addict and hoarder.

In any case, I truly believe that there is a special place in heaven for us stationery addicts where we can sit with our bright and beautiful planners and pens and just scribble and play with stickers all day.


Now, most of the stationery I buy are online because it’s difficult to get them in stores where I live. And the feeling of opening your door to a postman holding a brown parcel (containing your stationery, planners and notebooks) is the best feeling the whole world.


So, without further ado, I’m going to start off with one of the most sought after lists ever – 10 Stationery Brands every woman in her 20s is going to go ga-ga over!

1. Rifle Paper Co Stationery.

Rifle Paper Co Stationery makes women go ga ga

From Greeting Cards to Stationery and Planners to Accessories, Rifle Paper Co is every woman’s dream shop. I’m a huge plan of their Planners and Notebooks, because the paper quality is amazing.

And, the paper isn’t ghost white but a pleasant cream color which makes this line perfect for women in their twenties.

Their designs are subtle, feminine and pretty. And most of the time, they choose to go with a beautifully themed floral pattern for their designs.

So, I recently ordered a Phone Case for my mum (and myself) from Rifle Paper Co and she was beyond thrilled because it went with her most her shirts (which are all pink and floral.)

Their notebooks are a pleasure to write in. So, I regularly buy Notebooks from Rifle Co. And I’m a huge fan of their Paris Collection.

Hop on over to shop Rifle Paper Co.

2. Ban.Do Stationery

Ban.do creates stationery for girls who love fun, modern designs and lots of pink.

Ahhhh, Ban.Do.

When I earned my first blog’s income 2 years ago, I purchased a Ban.Do planner to celebrate. Ban.do creates stationery and accessories for girls who love fun, modern designs and lots of pink.


Therefore, I’m a huge fan of their stickers and Planner Accessories. And they even have a Starter Pack (which includes stickers, paper pins, pens, a To-Do list and more) that comes in a cute purse which compliments their beautiful Planners.

If you’ve not checked out Ban.do, you definitely should!

3. Kate Spade Stationery

Glamorous and shiny.

That’s how I’d describe Kate Spade. With a professional finish and lots of chic artwork in their designs, Kate Spade Stationery is for all busy women who want their desks to show off a little panache. They also have a beautiful, feminine collection of phone cases.

I love their Desk Accessories, because you can pair this with any light pink color Stationery. Ooh la la.

4. Bloom Daily Planners Stationery

They create Planners and Planner Accessories that are mainly floral themed. And these are really pretty. Now, if you’re like me and love to plan every day before you get started, then this line is tailored for you.

Also, did I mention that they have Tear-Off To Do Pads and Weekly Planner Pads?

I’m particularly loving their Magnetic Weekly Meal Plan and Grocery List! This is such a great idea, because you can stick this on the fridge and it’s super helpful and creative!

Check them out here.

Now, if you prefer to print your own Daily Plan or Weekly Plan on your printer, then you’re going to love these cute little Digital Printable Planners I’ve created and put in my Etsy Shop.

I’ve created the Daily Planner and Weekly Planner in A4 and A5. So, you can download the PDFs and print them as many times as you want!

5. Orange Circle Studio Stationery.

Mom Calendar Orange Circle Studio Stationery

Orange Circle Studio creates Planners and Wall Calendars (with pockets) that will brighten up any household! They have cute and super organized Mom Planners that I have my eye on for when I become a mom someday.

And, I’ve already added this 2019 Planner to Wishlist because it’s so pretty!

6. Me And My Big Ideas Stationery.

Their Planners and Planner Accessories are so, so, so cool!

They have different lines for teachers, students, kids and stationery crazy women like us who can’t live without planners!

I know that most of the stationery I’ve covered are related to planners but you can’t blame me.

Because I. R. Stationery Addict. *grins creepily*

Planners and Notebooks are my weakness in real life. Therefore, I’d choose a notebook/planner over jewelry any day.



Now, if you’re a fan of Planner Sets, then you’re going to love this. I’m going nuts over this Pastel Planner Box. It’s got:

  • 12 dividers
  • 4 sticker sheets
  • 3 sticky notepads (20 sheets)
  • 1 folder
  • 1 magnet bookmark
  • 1 planner

You can see the Pastel Planner Box here.

7. American Crafts Stationery.

I recently discovered this brand when I was on the hunt for gel crayons. Basically, these crayons are water-soluble. So, you can add a little water and create a beautiful water color effect.

In my opinion, these are very pretty and you should definitely try it out if you’re a budding Creative.

This brand sells everything – from crayons, stickers, cards and envelopes, journals, washi tapes, you name it.

And that brings us to the end of my favorite stationery that I cannot help but go ga-ga over!

    Glad to see these posts doing so well. Always wanted to do a blog myself but can never seem to make it about one particular subject. I always want to write about my various interests that have almost no relation to another. Which brings me to the question, how about doing a post about incorporating one’s own interests into their brand/creative page without it seeming unrelated to the page? One person I’m aware of that’s successfully pulled it off is Alicia Souza

      Hey Neil,

      Thank you! It’s very difficult to start blogging and know what you’re doing.

      Now my comics are related to hair but my blog is about creativity because let’s face it. I’m not a Hair Blogger. My knowledge of hair care products is very limited to what I use.

      Unlike making comics, you have to blog about a few topics at first just to get the hang of what’s working for you and what isn’t. When your posts do well, you will understand (based on Google Analytics) that particular posts are popular and that’s when you discover your niche!

      Alicia’s posts actually are related to her field. They are all about how she started her brand and such.
      What exactly are you thinking of blogging about? What’s on your mind? I may be able to point you in the right direction. πŸ˜€

        Hey thanks for the super quick reply! About the subjects, I was interested in making one that reviews Indie comics and webcomics too, but I’ve also been writing notes about this satirical junk food review blog that’s supposed to sound like a pretentious fine dining one πŸ˜› . At first I thought the obvious thing would be to make separate blogs but that would also mean completely different audiences, juggling multiple accounts and spreading myself thin too.

        • Angela Vaz May 20, 2018 at 1:40 am - Reply

          Hey Neil,
          No problem. Seriously.
          Okay, related to the food blogging/reviewing comics. No, you have to either stick to one, or have two separate blogs. There are only a handful of blogs that blogs about two (totally unrelated) fields and actually make it big.
          It’s more difficult to find people that are interested in 2 separate things than in exactly 1 thing. I’m speaking from experience. When I was blogging 3 years ago, I blogged about food, travel, art, and personal. What a mess.
          My blog was attracting minimal traffic and I couldn’t understand why. xD
          Having two blogs is insane! Plus, you’re making comics. So… I suggest pick one and work on that alone. πŸ˜€

      Hey Adwitya,
      I used Classmate books when I was in college. πŸ˜€ I love the blank ones.
      And yes, that was the intention. Ha ha.
      Lots of love,

      Hi Jess,
      Awww, thank you so much! πŸ˜€ Oh, your boyfriend will definitely get used to that habit eventually. πŸ˜› My husband sure did. Took him 6 years. Ha ha.
      Which Kate Spade Planner are you loving currently? Could you send me a link? I’d love to see it!
      Lots of love,
