Linouspots Etsy Shop!
Linouspots is one of my top favourite etsy stores for unique planner stickers, The Etsy shop is owned by a lovely lady Line and supplies a whole collection of beautiful unique hand drawn and hand watercoloured planner stickers in so many themes. This Etsy shop is based in Switzerland and opened in 2015.
Paid or free?
My review today consists of me preplanning an idea in my head to use different Linou’s sheets to make a spread, without actually using a weekly sticker kit. I’ve paid full price for these sheets that I am using today, as well as the beautiful washi tapes which were provided to me free with my PR package.
So I had the idea of trying out a rough design of what I had in my head out on paper first, I kind of wanted to build a weekly scene of sorts without using a weekly kit is a challenge to me as i usually plan with a full or mini kit.
All Line’s designs are avaliable in a choice of matt removeable and matt permenant and more recently she is starting to release designs in clear transparent too! Alot of the stickers I’ve used in my spread are from a mixture of sheets that i have been hoarding for such a long time, they are truly the kind of stickers you want to hoard because they are too pretty to use, haha!
I wanted to show off this sheet because whilst it’s named autumn time my spread this week is obviously spring time so you can use them easily in any spread for anytime of the year!
Now then! If you follow me on instagram @strudelsdoodles you’ll know i’m terrible when it comes to buying and hording pretty washi tapes, so when Line started making her own designs back in January I had to have them! I was super suprised when I receieved my PR package from Line that she had kindly included the newest tapes…
How pretty are these!!! From these I knew I wanted to create a spread with these colour combinations.
Here’s my final spread…
I’ve used up lots of elements all from Linouspots etsy store to create a spread from scratch!

My Personal Score
Each Shop Product I now review comes with a possible score of 100. This is determined on ten factors as below, you can find out HERE what the overall score means in my world.
Sticker Quality (10 / 10)
My orders are always completely without fault, I tend to mostly order the matt removable paper which has a soft and buttery feel to it, cut lines were always perfect. Matt removable means if you happen to pop a sticker in the wrong place you can easily peel it up and move it! Something I really like!
Cut Lines (10 / 10)
I have never had an issue with any cut lines from Linouspots they have always been perfect!
Vibrancy of Colours / Print (10 / 10)
The colours are even more vibrant in real life, the print quality is very very high to pick up the smallest details of her designs.
Uniqueness of Design (10 / 10)
One thing I look for when ordering planner stickers is unique art, all the designs in store are created by hand by Line and they are fun, quirky and truly unique!
Cost of order (8 / 10)
Prices range from as little as 95p to £37.26p in store, the average price for a single EC sized sheet is around £2.99, which is on the high side for planner stickers but for the quality and the unique designs you would expect to pay a little more.
Processing and Shipping Times (10 / 10)
Linouspots aims to process all orders within 7-14 working days, this means cutting and packing all the stickers and then actually posting your order out to you. Obviously different things factor the length it takes to process orders so please always check Etsy for her latest shipping processing times.
The last order I placed was on the of 27th March 2019, it was dispatched on the 30th March 2019 (so 3 days processing total) and then I received it on the of 4th April 2019. Total number of days from ordering till my order was in my hands was 8 days, which is extremely fast considering dispatch times are 1-2 weeks and coming from Switzerland to the UK.
Price of Postage and Packaging (7 / 10)
My order was received in a large letter card enverlope to protect it from being bent and the stickers from being damaged, The cost of postage paid was £4.52 to the UK from Switzerland, Linouspots doesn’t offer a flat rate postage as Swiss post works on weight and thickness which is unfortunately out of Line’s hands, I will point out that Linouspots has some incredibly cute postage stamps!
Presentation (10 / 10)
All my planner stickers were sealed inside a clear cello bag which was sealed.
Freebies/Rewards (8 / 10)
Linouspots does provide freebie sampler sheets with orders now and again, moreso on sale times, at the moment there isn’t a reward scheme but being in the know, something is in the works!
Seller/Shop Communication (10 / 10)
Line is lovely, any questions or quires you may have feel free to contact her. If you can’t see something in her shop, just ask, although time is tight Line will always do her best and is always open to ideas! Communication is fantastic and everything with my order was on-time and as expected from the moment I placed the order. Her shop about me section is informative and helpful for those who have questions and wanting to know about the shop too.
Overall – 94/100. (See here for breakdown of my score chart)
Over all I’m thrilled with my My Linouspots order and will certainly be continuing to use this shop for future purchases.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to know what you think? Have you ordered from Linouspots before?
