Japan’s reputation for quality and cuteness is nowhere more apparent than in the stationery you’ll find there. Japanese brands like ZEBRA, Uni, Pilot, and Kuretake make some of the most highly coveted products. But beyond the big brands is a wide world of unique stationery that you’ll love discovering.
ZenPop.jp, based in Osaka, Japan, curates monthly boxes of new Japanese stationery. These packs include pens, pencils, notebooks, journals, erasers, stickers, washi tape, and maybe some new types of stationery you’ve never used before. New boxes are available every month, filled with 10 new items and including at least 2 or 3 writing tools. A single pack can be ordered anytime and costs $29.50 USD, which includes free shipping to most destinations around the world. Subscriptions are also available which gives you a discount AND gets you an extra bonus item every month.
These stationery packs are a fun way to grow your stationery collection, and they make perfect gifts for any stationery lovers you know. Check out ZenPop’s website to see previews of previous packs, see pictures, and read reviews. July’s pack is filled with famous Japanese characters like Gudetama, and Rilakkuma, and some lesser known characters too, like Melon Kuma, the part melon - part bear who isn't well potty trained!
Look forward to colorful summery items in August’s Stationery Pack, which will include among many cool items, the award winning brush pen (with sparkles!) from Kuretake, Wink of Stella.
