Personally, I do not see the enjoyment of artistically crossing my “t’s” and dotting my “i’s”. Painstakingly embellishing my perfectly plain off-white Muji notebook pages with stickers also makes no sense.

But after researching for this article, I must admit I’m feeling the itch to get my hands on adorable stickers and washi tapes—maybe even jump on the journalling train.

Although there are physical stationery shops of where you can buy these products from, they may not carry certain international brands.

E-commerce options like Lazada and Shopee have a wide range of specialised stores. And they even come with user ratings so you’ll be assured of quality without even having to see the products firsthand.

Some even import, curate and design their own products!

So, I found 11 homegrown stores on Shopee with 5-star ratings that are guaranteed to make even the most anti-journalling person feel the itch to pick up a calligraphy pen and make things prettier.

All of these stores are based in Malaysia hence their shipping times would be much faster compared to buying from an overseas seller (with certain exceptions).

1. Artsunami

For the avid journaller, Artsunami may be a common name for you.

With over 100 products listed on their page such as their customisable habit trackers, chrono trackers, finance trackers and more, you’ll be able to organise your life better.

This online store is perfect for those looking for rose gold-foiled stickers, motivational prints, notepads, writing tools and labeling stickers such as day and month covers, academic stickers or icons and tasks.

Plus, they also design their own journal inserts which look really slick and chic. Considering how this is a fairly new store, they’ve only got 19 items at the moment. Still, from the limited selection, you might find one that tickles your fancy, especially if you enjoy the Muji appeal.
