Behind the Bookmarks

 

We focus on creating characters that cheer you up and always stay where you've last left them.

Once upon a time in a land far away called Vancouver, two girls were sitting around with lots of creative ideas but no ways to share them! By doing what they loved, Diana and Erica joined forces to send smiles around the world!

After many scraps of paper, pages of doodles, and endless nights of cutting, they came up with their newest adventure, craftedvan! 

Handmade: Designed, Cut & Packaged with lots of love!

Craftedvan specializes in magnetic bookmarks, magnets, and cards. 

Our bookmarks are made locally, often while snacking on our delicious goodies and watching our favourite tv shows. You can find our products on our Etsy or in stores at: Vromans BookstoreBird on a Wire and the SFU Bookstore.  

Who are we?

Our names are Diana Luong and Erica Carreras. We've been friends for 9 years and began craftedvan together in 2012. We opened our Etsy shop in October 2013, which has been a blast of an adventure! Diana handles all the design creation while Erica handles all the production magic. We experimented with tons of different products before falling in love with magnetic bookmarks and fridge magnets! Outside of craftedvan, Diana is a designer and Erica is a registered nurse, resulting in a perfect mix of love, creativity and care in all of our creations.

 

Excellent quality. Beautifully wrapped. Fast shipping. Just gorgeous. I wish I could give this six stars. Highly recommended!!!

Cutest book marks I’ve ever had! Went to the library for more books to use them with. Amazing product - fantastic shop owners.

I am reading several books at the same time so having a set makes everything easier. The magnet part also makes it easier to manage than traditional bookmarks. Love them and the cute note/envelope that came with the bookmarks. Makes you feel like you just received a present from a close friend!
