The Delightful Unicorn Etsy Shop!
I have a serious obsession with all things planner related, from stickers to TN and Planner Accessories which if you follow me you’ll know I’m a tiny bit obsessed. Earlier this month one of my favourite Etsy Shops The Delightful unicorn took part in the Planner Shops United Sale, naturally I couldn’t resist! This Etsy shop is based in the UK and is ran by the lovely Nicki whom is always open to new ideas and is friendly and approachable. Nicki’s store is filled with amazing stitched felt planner clips, a huge array of planner stickers and much much more!.
Paid or free?
My review today is of my order that I placed in the Planner Shops United Sale with The Delightful Unicorn included planner stickers, die cuts and planner clips. As my order was placed whilst the sale was on I had a discount of 30% which is always epic to save some pennies… or spend more haha!.
Let’s have a peek at what stickers I ordered…
I was super excited when Nicki told me she was releasing these Planner cup stickers, I recently actually purchased one of the Planner Cups from America, it’s one of those must have things in the planner world and as per usual most things like this are only available in America, so when I finally found a seller who would ship me one to the UK i was thrilled, so naturally when Nicki had the stickers I had to have them!. I also had the new release Period related stickers which are fantastic, I love the little quotes that are next to them, we all know being a woman sucks sometimes!. As my order was in the sale as previously mentioned above I received freebies too, a beautiful Autumn themed double box perfect for my recollections planner and a mini sampler sheet with cute little functional characters!
Next up we have thee most epic die cuts I’ve ever purchased! The Planner Cup!
As I rambled on about the cup above I won’t bore you with that story again, but these die cuts are epic, they are the perfect size for the front of my b6 Travellers Notebook and also to laminate into my personal wide ringed planner, One thing that’s bugged me for ages is shops not providing larger die cuts and these are perfect at 4″ high. I also really like the quality of the 250gsm card which is really sturdy.
The next bunch of my order are the clips!
I am a massive fan of The Delightful Unicorn’s clips, they’re really well made. Not only are they well made, they are one of very few shops that sell these clips that actually stay white, the quality of the materials used in making them are very high quality. I own so many of Nicki’s clips now I really adore them, The dreams clip is made from Leatherette material with a cute adorable holographic bow stitched in purple and is so pretty in real life. I’m a total girly girl when it comes to planner pretty’s and anything purple or pink I have to buy.
I love the cute Pink Lemonade clip, which I’m planning on using in my summer travelers notebook this year. I was thrilled when Nicki brought the kawaii cloud clips to the shop they are so cute and I know I already need another one! They too are made with Leatherette which is really nice and different with the most adorable glitter bow to finish. Now as you guessed I love pink and I am one Starbucks coffee mad person so the Planner Girl with coffee well… do I really have to say anymore? I totally love this effect of stitching it’s so pretty.
As part of the Planner Shops United, The shop was giving away a rainbow stitched today planner clip which ya know… me and rainbows… had to have! I also ordered a pickle planner clip which isn’t photographed because that’s not for me, I hate pickles yak!!! haha. My better other half loves them and eats them from the jar (Total weirdo) so I brought that for him to include him in my planning obsession haha.
Finally I ordered two Christmas planner clips.
I have a foxy fix TN which is dedicated to Christmas so these are for that, I haven’t got a Santa and being Christmas really is a must!. The Snowglobe… well, I have three of these now, one large and two small, they’re amazing, I think this clip is in my top 3 favourite clips from the shop, I totally love the idea of how it’s made it’s fab with fake snow inside that moves around, I really hope Nicki makes different versions of these *wink wink*.

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.
Paper Quality (10 / 10)
My order was completely The Delightful Unicorn’s standard matt sticker paper which recently she has changed.
The Delightful Unicorn doesn’t use branded sticker paper it’s pure white on the reverse. (Please be aware they are currently changing so you may receive some that are yellow backed, this doesn’t effect quality at all.
Vibrancy of Colours / Print (10 / 10)
The stickers that I have received within my order are really vibrant, they were bright and no faults in print quality at all.
Uniqueness of Clipart (8 / 10) The Delightful Unicorn has a whole array of designs within stickers and in planner clips, some of which are unique to her shop, that’s something I really like being different from everyone else. There are many designs that are unique that I’ve not seen before.
Cost of order (10 / 10)
I am happy with the price I paid for my paid for my order, like I mentioned I had a discount for the sale.
All the stickers products in the shop are various prices but on average Clips vary from £1-£2.25 and stickers vary from £1 upwards depending on design.
Processing and Shipping Times (9 / 10)
The Delightful Unicorn aims to process all orders within 1-2 Weeks, this means cutting, stitching and packing all the super cute stickers and clips 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 there latest shipping processing times. Usually her processing times can be as little as 1-3 working days, different things effect this e.g. sales etc.
I placed my order on the of 10th February 2018, it was dispatched on the 16th February 2018 (so 6 days processing total) and then I received it on the of 21st February 2018. Total number of days from ordering till my order was in my hands was 11 days, which is really good considering the amount of time things take to make with the detailing of the clips.
Cut Lines (10 / 10)
I cannot fault the cut lines in any of the sheets of stickers or die cuts that I received, they are 100% perfect.
Price of Postage and Packaging (9 / 10)
My order was received in a 3D Box to protect it from being bent and the stickers from being damaged, The cost of postage paid was a printed Royal Mail 2nd Class at £1.78 so I think the £1.25 price I paid for postage and packaging is more than adequate. Each Planner Clip is packaged in The Delightful Unicorn’s packaging separately which is a really nice personal touch.
Presentation (10 / 10)
All my stickers were sealed inside the envelope in a clear cello bag which was sealed with the shops business card. All packaged up inside plain white tissue paper and bubble wrap for extra protection.
Freebies/Rewards (8 / 10)
The Delightful Unicorn sends new business cards going in with all orders with a thank you card which is a nice touch, along with a small sampler of stickers (when purchasing stickers). They do not currently offer a rewards system.
Seller/Shop Communication (10 / 10)
Nicki is lovely, she will answer any questions you have or if you want something different made or colours or anything, nothing is too much trouble.r. If you can’t see something in her shop, just ask! 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 The Delightful Unicorn order and will certainly be shopping again and again.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to know what you think? Have you ordered from The Delightful Unicorn Before?
