I’ve always had this penchant for collecting things—books, stationery, Pokemon, pen bodies, bookmarks.
Collecting and using bookmarks date waaay back when I had so much time on my hands. As I journeyed through pages upon pages of words, worlds, and dialogue I’d use anything I can grab as a bookmark. I’d stick receipts, tags, collectible cards, and scraps of paper in books just to pick up where I left off.
When college started, I eventually had to set reading aside for college, career, and raising a family. Though this meant spending more time online, I wouldn’t have rediscovered my love for collecting or found up-and-coming brands making amazing creative work without it.
One such brand is Mark Your Book PH, a maker of “fandom bookmarks designed and printed on high-quality card stock.” Thanks to random previews that showed up on my Shopee.ph feed, I discovered MYBPH’s Harry Potter Hogwarts Houses collection and fell completely in love with the aesthetic and quality of each design.
Their designs are neither cheap nor poorly made. Each bookmark is 2 x 6 inches, printed on quality 300gsm card stock, and matte laminated. Each order is packaged with a strip of cut-up cardboard and foam to keep the bookmarks from bending while being shipped. They’re then tied with jute string and wax sealed—a classy touch that I very much appreciate. 😍
Mark Your Book’s current collection caters to fans of Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and young adult favorites like Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series, Hunger Games, and John Green’s Paper Towns and Fault in Our Stars.
Being a Potterhead, I went straight for the Hufflepuff bookmark and quotes from a few of the series’ beloved female characters—Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, and Ginny Weasley. And to make the shipping fee count, I added MYBPH exclusive designs like the #currentlyreading and Treat Yo’ Self bookmarks. The color choices were just too good to resist.
Mark Your Book PH sell their bookmarks through the Shopee.ph marketplace, which allows you to pay cash upon delivery if you prefer to receive the products first.
They ship on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and orders heading to Cagayan de Oro takes less than a week on average, all depending on weather conditions and if there are national holidays that may delay the delivery. Fortunately, I’ve placed three orders since I discovered the brand and each order was easy and hassle-free.
So if you’re looking for high-quality bookmarks that celebrate your favorite movie, character, or book series, you’ll love Mark Your Book PH. Each bookmark is Php 40, so they may be pricey for some bookworms. But keep an eye out for promos where you can get the designs you want at a good discount. 😉
