The BEST Places For Cheap Stationery – High Quality Aliexpress Stationery Stores (HAUL)

Hello, fellow soulless internet addicts; today I’m going to be talking about two things we all know and love: stationery and bargains. Namely, the best stationery shops on Aliexpress, where you can find all of the best bargains.

If you’ve been here since the beginning, you may remember my Aliexpress Stationery haul in which I shared some cute things with you all . . . Well, it’s almost a year later and my stationery addiction has largely increased – meaning that my need for affordable stationery has increased too. So here I am with a haul part 2 – featuring some of my trusted, favourite stationery stores!

Before we begin, though, for those of you who don’t know what Aliexpress is, let me explain.

What Is Aliexpress?

Aliexpress is an online marketplace where most merchants are based in China. You can buy things for a literal fraction of the price that you would buy them for in your home country! It’s my go to place for stationery as you can buy a pack of high quality pens for £1, but over here they might be £5. Or stickers for 20p that would be £1.50! (Pretty much all the stationery featured in my bullet journal is courtesy of Aliexpress.)

The reason Aliexpress is so cheap is because you’re buying directly from the factory in China, so there are no markups added. Due to this, your packages will take longer though as they’re sent through Free Post from China. I’ve had things arrive as quickly as in a week . . . but sometimes it can take up to 3.


Now that we’ve got that out of the way . . . here are some of my favourite high quality Aliexpress stationery stores! Get those savings, baby.

SHOP #1 – KSCrafts

Okay, this store is basically a stationery lover’s wet dream. It’s perfect for bullet journallers, crafters, scrapbookers, artists . . . it’s probably my favourite store on here (and, admittedly, the most expensive.) (Although expensive is still unbelievably cheap, so who’s complaining?). The range of items is crazy and the quality is even better.

This is where you can get your super cute paper backgrounds, quote inserts and really unique cardboard cutouts to stick in.

Here’s what I bought from this store:,scm-url:1007.13339.99734.0

90 Paper Cuts – £2.49,scm-url:1007.13339.99734.0

Vintage Paper Sticker Background – £1.96

40pc Floral Vintage Stickers – £2.05

Black and white floral stickers – £1.60

You’ve seen these used in loads of my recent spreads . . . mainly because I’m absolutely obsessed with them. I have no shame. Here are some examples:

At the moment, I’m leaning more towards cute vintage-y designs, but if you like the more modern stuff this shop has an awesome range for you too. Remember my Summer Bucketlist Bullet Journal Spread? No? Well, we already knew that this post was going to be image heavy – why not just chuck another image in here?

All those tabs (“Adventure”, the location pointers, the tabs with numbers and “yes to this”) were purchased from this store. That kind of tumblr/Pinterest style with all the bright colours, flamingo prints and pretty fonts etc. are all also available! Let me hit you up with some of those links!,scm-url:1007.13339.90158.0

50pc Summer Cardstock – £3

SHOP #2 – MaggieStationeryStore

Number 2 is MaggieStationeryStore. (No, I don’t name these things. Don’t look at me like that.)

This Aliexpress store has the most adorable, luxurious (well, luxurious for washi tape) products that will instantly make your bullet journal unbelievably cute.

You guys have seen their quite frankly beautiful washi tape featured in my washi tape collection, but also my How To Set Blog Goals post. And if you haven’t seen it because you didn’t read it . . . go back and read it you slackers.

Here’s what I bought from this store:

Cheap washi tape, Buy Quality masking tape directly from China decorative stickers tape Suppliers: 10 Styles Gold Foil Gild Washi Tape Hot Stamping Flower Bonsai House DIY Bullet Jornal Stickers Decorative Sticker Masking Tapes

Gold Foil Floral Washi Tape – £0.96 each

Floral Letter Stickers – £0.70

SHOP #3 – Viety Official Store

Have I possibly saved the best store ’til now? Let me give you a wholehearted yes on that. This store . . . my friends, this stationery store fulfills all of my bullet journalling/art journalling needs. It fulfills all of my dirty stationery fantasies. It makes me believe in a better world; a better future.

The stationery is so cute – so vintage and arty – that it could almost trick me into thinking I’m creative. I confess, this is probably the largest part of my haul . . . but once you see what I’ve bought, I’m sure you’ll understand why.

Spoiler alert? Loads of you have already seen and asked me about some of the washi tape and stickers from here. Grab your wallets, baby.

Here’s what I bought from this store:

1pcs/lot kawaii Retro goddess weekly plan Sticky Notes Post Memo Pad Korean stationery School Supplies Planner Stickers

Set Of 4 Designs – Renaissance Paintings Notepad x 4 – £1.90

Cheap tape diy decoration, Buy Quality washi tape directly from China masking tape Suppliers: 1.5-10cm*5-7m Vintage European opera epic washi tape DIY decoration scrapbooking planner masking tape adhesive tape washitape

Renaissance Paintings Washi Tape – £0.71 – £2.50 – Aliexpress

I now realise that it looks like I only bought 2 things from this store, but I actually bought like 5 rolls of washi tape; they’re just all under that one listing.

Okay, kids – to avoid keeping you stuck down the rabbit hole that is my blog for any longer than you already have been, let’s wrap this post up here!

  1. Good paper and good pens = back off and leave me to my own devices.
    Forgery had its Bob Dylan moment too, so to speak, of going from acoustic to electric. A place for both…. so eternally gorgeous.

  2. Nooo!!! I can’t afford to spend any more money on stationery 🙁 I LOVE buying things for my bullet journal but since it’s quite expensive in stores I end up with just a few “essential” (essential is of relative importance) things :/ I bought a planner on Aliexpress and a few stickers 2 or 3 years ago and I live them! Now, my stationery needs are increasing and thanks to you (or because of you 😂) I’m desperately needing to buy things on Aliexpress 😆

    1. I know, I know – stationery is SO BLOODY EXPENSIVE ;-; *cries with you* buuuut this stationery is all cheap and cute so i mean who could really blame you 😉 xx

  3. I am a HUGE fan of those first floral stickers and the renaissance stickers at the end, I need to invest in some fun stickers, even to stick on my bloody forehead cos clearly I’m missing out on a market! xx

  4. I have never heard of this store before now but I can see exactly why you love it – it is your aesthetic in a store! I love how you ramble in your posts, it feels more like a conversation like a blog post. xx

  5. I’ve only ever heard of Aliexpress from you before, I didn’t know there was free shipping. Oh gosh, I def have to check that site out but am a bit worried about my wallet hahaha. Love those floral letter stickers; how freakin’ adorable!

  6. I wish i was talented enough to make cute things out of bullet journals, but I’m obsessed with seeing photos of stickers and the journals. This was a great, helpful post!

  7. I never really thought about adding stationery to my nature journal. I always want it to look pretty so I fill it with mediocre drawings, haha. I love this idea and all the choices you’ve shown. There’s hope for me yet.

  8. OMG this is awesome, I’m glad you are recommending something that I can actually buy! Yesssss! So gonna check it out and hopefully improve my journaling game! HAHA

  9. WHAT HAVE I TOLD YOU ABOUT POSTING BEAUTIFUL STATIONERY at least there was no washi tape this time or the inner hoarder in me would have been screaming, *scrolls further down the post* oh, there it is and there’s me off to buy more things I don’t need…you get me girl, we’re on the same level when it comes to admiring stationery hahaha xx

  10. I only buy stuff on Etsy but I have to buy now stuff on Aliexpress. Omgggg this post is so awesome 😍😍👌 Great shops! I love stationery stuff so much especially notebooks, stickers and washi tape. Thank you for sharing girl xoxo

  11. I have ordered several different items from this company for my business. Everything has been really great: good communication, fast responses, good understanding of my wishes, and the products were all shipped safely and well packaged. We are very pleased with each item we received. Many thanks 4imprint!
