Hello! I'm Daniel and welcome to my shop!
Based out of San Diego, California, I graduated with my BA in English from the University of California, Riverside (shoutout to all my highlanders). I started this stationery shop because I believed it was time to follow my own dreams and begin my small business journey.
I started Ecstatic Press on September of 2020 on Etsy selling stickers. I love stickers. Stickers are a fun way to decorate your personal items and make you feel ecstatic. And as cheesy as it may sound, stickers are what got me through life. I use stickers to get me to motivated, keep myself organize, and most importantly, expressing myself by adding stickers to my personal items.
In November of 2020, I started selling Mystery Books and quickly become Etsy's #2 Bestseller in the Books category out of the whole marketplace. I was overwhelmed with gratitude. As an English major, it is a huge honor for me to sell books and make other readers happier with their book selections. I never felt like I could fit in the book community, but through my mystery books, I've received countless words of gratitude, wisdom, and most of all, support to keep going.
And now, as of Saturday January 23, 2021, I expanded my business onto my own website and began to expand my stationery brand. I love stickers and books, but stationery is what kept me going in life. My bullet journals are always what kept me organize in undergrad, colored pens are like the keys to ignite the ignition of a car, stickers always kept me on task and motivated, and most of all books are what made me feel alive.
My goal with my brand is to make you feel ecstatic through my waterproof stickers, get yourself organized with my planner sticker sheets and bullet journals, and to get you a good book to read with my mystery books.
My brand aesthetic are hand-drawn art that gives the illusion of hand drawn drawings. I believe hand drawn art is the most vulnerable way to express yourself to the world. You can see this aesthetic in my stickers, sticker sheets, and notebooks.
Thank you to everyone who has kept my dream alive. Stay ecstatic.
