Best quotes about books – recommended sites
Etsy – it’s the top destination for anyone who wants to express the love for books. The largest marketplace with hand-crafted goods offers thousands of literary quotes – on posters, jewelry, personal items, electronic accessories, and clothes.
Redbubble – a marketplace for custom-designed items, including prints, stationery, cases & covers, or t-shirts. Opposite to other sites, such as CafePress, the quality of artwork is very high.
Zazzle – the site offers a huge variety of merchandise, from clothing, to home decor, to personal accessories. What’s more, users can upload their own image and create their own design.
Amazon Handmade – if you don’t want to sign up to other online stores, you can start exploring Amazon’s own section with hand-crafted items. It’s quickly growing, and you’ll find here posters, home decor, and stationery – also with book quotes.
