If you’ve been following my bookstagram (@lyrical.reads), then you’ve probably heard the name “Bookster Designs” at least once. If you haven’t, then I’ll tell you that Bookster Designs is my new Etsy shop! I’ve always enjoyed design and photography, so I put both together to create my bookmark store (hopefully I may be able to expand to include more products😉)! The unique thing about Bookster Designs is that all of the background photos of the bookmarks were taken by me!
I was especially inspired by Catherine, who is the owner of Hey Atlas Creative, and the way she runs her business *nudge* go follow her bookstagram to get updates! I came up with the name “Bookster Designs” because of @thebibliotheque and her invention of the word “bookster” (and it’s corresponding hashtag). I was thinking of potential shop names, and bookster just stuck with me! I added the “designs” part in order to keep my options open if I ever want to venture into designing prints! (my first 2018 New Years Resolution?)
I’ve also announced that I’m officially opening on Black Friday! (time tba, but maybe around 10 EST? Comment below to suggest a time!) I’m really excited to be offering FREE domestic shipping, and international shipping is relatively inexpensive since the bookmarks are mailed in a regular letter envelope! Because it is Black Friday–and you can’t have Black Friday without a sale–I will give a 10% discount code to use from Friday to Cyber Monday if you share Bookster Design’s opening! It can be through your Instagram stories or any online platform (make sure to link me to the announcement)!
Now for the super fun part😏…
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the bookmarks that will be stocked on Black Friday!
The first reveal is a Nikolai inspired bookmark! Perfect timing, since Leigh Bardugo recently announced that she’s writing King of Scars! The bookmark features a classic Nikolai line from Siege & Storm, the second book in the Grisha Trilogy.
If you’re going to open a bookmark shop, then of course you’ve got to have a bookmark with a book quote😉. That’s where Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices steps in…
I don’t think Bookster Designs would be complete if I didn’t create at least one Harry Potter inspired bookmark! I’ll tell you that there are three stocked for the grand opening! The quotes featured are by some of the strongest ladies in the series🤗!
