Most stationery stores house all of our basic needs, but what about when you need that specific textured paper for that jazzy invite? Or to fuel a DIY project like making a lamp, or perhaps an article of clothing? We’re bringing to you a set of stationery stores that house items you won’t find in many places. Of course, if you’re an artist/ art student, these must go into your little black books!

This is every NIFT student’s go to store for two reasons and can be yours as well- they house a large variety of supplies, from paints, paper of all sorts, quirky add-ons {stickers, ribbons- to name a few} and they’re fairly priced and centrally located {if you live in South Delhi}. They’ll do special orders if you ask them really nicely, and even bring in all types of paper from Sadar Bazaar {some, only on request} to save you the trip. Also, when you want only a few loose sheets, colored, textured or otherwise, they’ll charge you by the sheet so you don’t have to buy an entire packet.

Where: Shop No. E-49, Hauz Khas main market {opp. Mother Dairy}

Yash Stationers

In a tiny corner of South Extension lies a vast collection of stationery that you may not find in most regular stationery stores. We know for a fact that they house a specific type of Japanese clay that looks and feels like a giant marshmallow and is very malleable. They also have paper with texture imitation, like wood for instance. If you’re trying to learn to draw the human form, you can buy a wooden croquis or two from them. Of course, all your regular stationery is present too, so it’s inclusive.

Where: E-6, South Extension II {next to Archies}
