MORE THAN STICKERS: KeenaPrints’ upgrade to business
Posted on 09 November 2018
Local and small businesses are inspiring, especially when you know the real deal in their starting stories. I personally love supporting small businesses here in the Philippines because I see how these owners value hardwork a lot and how they create impacts in their customers’ lives through their dedication. One of my favorites is of course, my friend’s (not so) small business, KeenaPrints. I’ve been blogging about the shop’s stickers for a couple of posts on my site before and now, I want to highlight the business beyond stickers.
Since Keena is a very talented and creative artist slash entrepreneur, her designs have already expounded for almost a year of me purchasing from her shop. Before, she focuses on her sticker designs but now, she also has become innovative for the needs of planner girls and journaling enthusiasts. Her designs are versatile - KeenaPrints has the stickers for all occasions and emotions - and it was nice seeing them to be placed on other stuff aside from stickers.
As a sucker for washi tapes, my washi tape lover self became really happy when Keena designed for her first washi in 2018. She first designed an exclusive collaboration designed washi tape for a planner group in the Philippines back in 2016 (I think), and for 2018, this is a year for her new washi tapes. I’ve been collecting them since the start of her bundle / collection series, and I really adore her designs and color choices. I use her washi tapes on my planner spreads and journal pages. I even design my devotion journal with her washi tapes.
Speaking of collections, KeenaPrints has released seven Lolita girls series for the half of 2018. That’s a lot, I tell you. Designing them, I believe, was not really easy since you have to be really creative and unique so that the customers will come back to your shop again, and KeenaPrints has proven to be capable of doing so. As of the moment, the KeenaPrints collections include Sweet Lolita, Tea Time, Marble Lola, Chic Lolita, Wizard Wonderland, Cozy Holiday, and Candy Lolita (Candy Lolita will be released today, November 5).
Additionally, KeenaPrints also offers tote bags and pouches, as included in some of the collections the shop has. There are also pouches and coin purses of the original KeenaPrints girls like Keenachi and Wednesday. My personal favorites are the Sweet Lolita tote bag, Keenachi pouch, and Keenachi coin purse.
Lastly, KeenaPrints also sells other stationery accessories for your planners like ring planner dashboards, sticker diecuts, bookmarks, sticker albums, patches, and magnets. Some of these are also patterned to the collections. Of course, let us not forget where it all started - the sticker line!
