Japanese Stationery Shop Review – Sweet Supplies Store

A while ago I started a series of Japanese Stationery Shop reviews. Only Cute Things from Japan and the Rainbowholic Shop were reviewed, before Cato fell ill :(.

To complete this series, I would like to share two more shops with you, starting with the Sweet Supplies Store. I already had a pleasant shopping experience there and this time I ordered washi tape and stickers. Because you can never have too much kawaii stationery, right?

Each package from Sweet Supplies Store will come with the cutest Japanese stamps. Everything is shipped in a sturdy envelope, so you don’t have to worry about items getting bend.

My order arrived with a card and a couple of cute flake stickers as gift.

Sweet Supplies Store offers MT washi tape at a very reasonable price. I can’t recommend MT tape enough, the quality is great and it’s easy to reposition. I also use MT to hang up garlands, light strings and cards, it sticks well and leaves no residue.

This ‘Chima Kira’ cat sticker sheet was the reason I started filling up my cart. If you look closely you can even spot a cute white cat resembling Cato. This particular sheet is sold out, but Sweet Supplies Store offers plenty of other cute Japanese cat stickers.

Shop owner Eriko has got a thing for budgies, so you can find many bird related stationery at Sweet Supplies Store. She also offers a great selection of official Mind Wave stickers, a kawaii Japanese brand that I’m very fond of.

Sweet Supplies Store Review Summary

Cute stationery in this shop

This store offers plenty of stationery, such as stickers, sticky notes, washi tape, rubber stamps, notebooks and pens. All the prints have got a cute theme, such as pets, fantasy and Sanrio characters.

Packing and shipping

★★★★★

Eriko emailed a picture of the ordered items and the package itself. She shipped the package very quickly and it arrived within a week. You can expect to find the cutest Japanese character stamps on your package ^_^

Product and shipping prices

★★★★★

The stationery items are all very affordable, especially if you order over $14.00. In that case you’ll receive a 10% discount. Shipping prices will start at around $3.50, for reference shipping by Airmail was $5.43 for my package. A tracking number will cost about $4.00 extra.
Shipping is a little on the higher side, compared to shops as Cute Things from Japan and Kawaii Shop Japan. But given the fact that Eriko has to pay Etsy fees, I think the prices are fair and she deserves 5 stars.

Customer service

★★★★★

Eriko responds very quickly to questions on Etsy and she restocked an item that I asked for.

Sweet Supplies Store is my go-to shop for cute quality washi tape and sticker sheets. I do recommend ordering over $14.00 (for a 10% discount) and to aim for lightweight items, to avoid high shipping costs.
