Welcome to my guide of my favorite stationery shops in Seoul. For each shop I’ve linked the official Instagram account and any in-depth blog posts (with more photos, hauls, and video tours). These shops often have varying opening hours and can move locations, so check the shop’s Instagram page for the latest hours/location information before you visit!
This is the Google Map of my Seoul Stationery Guide (Updated March 2023). Google Maps isn’t as accurate or widely-used as Naver or Kakao Maps, so would recommend using either of the latter two before you visit Korea.
GUIDE UPDATED: March 2023 (in progress)
Jongro (near Gyeongbuk Palace) / 종료, 경북
ALL WRITE Shop (올라이트) / @allwrite_shop / Blog post (w video, but at old location)
All Write is a stationery brand aimed for those who love to record and write. They have a variety of minimal design notebooks, notepads, postcards, washi tapes and stickers. I used their 1/4 Year Planners for years, and still have a stockpile of their washis and palm-sized notebooks that I carry around.
One More Bag (원모어백) / @onemorebagkr
Technically this might be a bag (purses, totes) store, but they have a great selection of local artists’ stationery. Everything from cute to minimal. They often also do pop-ups/exhibitions with different themes and creators. Definitely worth a visit if you’re visiting Gyeongbuk Palace.
Little Tempo Design Shop (리틀템포 디자인샵) / @little_tempo_shop
A cute and tiny little shop tucked in an alley a short walk from Gyeonbuk Palace. Carries original character-themed stationery and accessory items such as stickers, stamps, pouches, bags and more.
