Of all the fixations in the world, an unhealthy obsession with stationery can be considered to be pretty normal. If you, like us, love to hoard journals, pretty stickers, colour pens, notebooks, markers and postcards, then you are definitely a stationery fiend. And for obsessed folks like you, you've got to feel the paper, run your fingers through beautiful notebooks, try and test pens and admire colours and paints. So, without much ado, we give you a round-up of stationery stores in Bangalore, we feel you must visit when you feel the need to restock your supplies. After all, there is no such thing as too much stationery. 

Reliance Stationery Mart

Reliance Stationery Mart is a haven for artists and they have quite an array of stationery. Pick up water paints, brushes, and easels along with fountain pens and sleek gel pens. If you love writing with markers, there's every imaginable colour available from brands such as Staedtler. You'll find highlighters in neon shades (colour up those boring textbooks, perhaps?) and plenty of folders and files are on offer, too. Even if you aren’t much into art, we suggest you take a look at their range of charcoal pencils, watercolour pencils and shading pencils. You might just be tempted to try your hand at a spot of sketching!

Sapna Book House

At Sapna Book House, you have an entire section dedicated to stationery. Apart from the basic supplies like pencils, pens and cute erasers, they have a selection of notebooks (we love the spiral-bound ones and the Paper Fibre series) which might make you linger for longer than you were planning to. They have a wide range of art supplies as well, including painting materials, sketch pens, colour pencils, canvas boards and many more. All of them at affordable rates, too!

Itsy Bitsy

From beads and feathers of vivid shades to glitter and clay, Itsy Bitsy has all sorts of craft goods that will probably bring out the child in you. If you, like us, find beauty in letter writing and notes, they have the prettiest papers, envelopes and postcards, and calligraphy sets too. This is also a sanctum for artists who have been looking for professional art supplies like Black Gesso Primer, Mont Marte Charcoal Pencils, and Mont Marte Soft Pastels. Basics like clippers, folders, markers, colour pens, pencils and tape dispensers find a place on their shelves too.

Artzo India

Located on 80 Feet Road, New BEL Road (they have an outlet on Church Street as well)  art enthusiasts have been flocking to this store for their regular creative pursuits. Being an art store, you can bet they have regular stationery, but in high quality (and variety). Sketchbooks, Washi tape, carving tools and paper are perfect for watercolour paintings or charcoal sketches or crafting even. Whether you're a noob or a professional, you won't be disappointed as they have something for every budget and skill set.

From numerous paper materials (pick from cartridges, handmade, coloured charts, and newsprints) to different types of art supplies (paint, pastels, charcoals, crayons, easels and colour pencils), they offer products from brands like Camlin, Pebeo, and Winsor & Newton. And if you are not so keen on making the long trip to Avenue Road, head to their store inside the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath.

The two-floor shop will sort you out whether you are a student, a professional, or just someone who needs a lot of quality stationery in their life. We pop by the store from time to time to pick up fountain pens and have also taken a few artist friends here to buy charcoal pencils, sketchbooks, and paint kits and tools.
