We just created two new patterns in time for the gift-giving season! These new items are some of the best yet. The first features simple colors, and classic old-school font accents. The second pattern has some cool interlocking swirls, and the brightest colors of any of our bookmarks. They are both cut from heavy duty, upholstery fabric with amazing textural elements. Here is a preview:

Look for more pics of the finished product in the next few days. These will be available for purchase by early next week, or you can request a sample through our contact page.

New Packaging – the best yet

This is exciting news… (at least for us). We have been working with Duke Packaging to create a new custom package, and we just got them in today!

This new package features a die cut window on the front and a diagram of your brain on the back. The window allows you to easily see and feel the texture and styles of each item. The diagram on the back helps to explain the neuroscience behind the bookmarks and why they are more than just a bookmark. No more struggling to explain to your friends why you are so excited about the bookmark that you gave them.

The Best Bookstore in Every State

The Best Bookstore in Every State (and D.C.)

We are excited to soon make Italic Bookmarks available through select independent bookstores around the country. Each bookstore you visit tends to have it’s own unique features and personality. Some are elegant and clean, while others are cluttered by beautiful stacks of books everywhere you turn. You will always find an inviting and comfortable atmosphere.  Some stores may feature only a small, but carefully curated selection of titles, but most have more reading material than you could ever hope to get through in a lifetime. You will typically encounter several other book-lovers searching the shelves for their next treasure. Behind every independent bookstore are dedicated owners and knowledgeable employees, passionate about providing great books to their community.

I discovered an article that features the Best Bookstore in Every State that are all examples of why we love independent bookstores. While any list is subjective, this one is interesting because it is based on recommendations and reviews on Yelp, posted by thousands of visitors, rather than just the preferences of a few people.

And in case you like a second opinion:

PureWow: The Best Bookstores in America

You can use these lists to find gems in your state, or when you travel to find the must-see locations near your destination. You will be sure to find a unique space, and there is a good chance that you will discover your next “all-time favorite” book.

Which of these stores have you visited? Are there any notable locations that didn’t make the list?

Branded!

Italic Bookmarks just got their very own, custom labels! They are pretty simple and straightforward, but the finished product looks very nice. I like the contrast that the simple design of the label provides to the unique patterns and texture of each bookmark. I am proud of this finished product.
