New Product: Sticky Fingers Bookmarks

Although a lot of my product are becoming more quirky and playful, the original foundation of Wask products was inspired mostly by stationery! And I want to keep making stationery things forever.

Anyway, I kept seeing magnetic bookmarks online for a while now and I just couldn’t figure out how to make a fun Wask version of the bookmarks. And then I saw a photo of some magnetic bookmarks in a row on a page in a book, and to my brain they looked like fingers gripping the page. I liked that weird thought, so I decided to make it!

You can check out the “Sticky Fingers” bookmarks here.

New Product: Lucky Number Two Enamel Pin

At some point this summer, I was wandering around Toronto thinking about how many pigeons there are everywhere. Everywhere! And yet, I’ve lived here since 2014 and have never been pooped on by one of them! Is that even statistically probable?

People say it’s good luck to get pooped on by a bird, and I started to feel some good luck FOMO after all these years. That’s why I decided we can create our own luck with the Lucky Number Two enamel pin – the bird poop pin you can wear any day you wanna feel lucky!

Just don’t tell the pigeons.

Silica gel candy – finally back!

The “DO NOT EAT” candy is back! It took me sooooo long because there were many bumps in the road – the first one being that I had to find an entirely new candy supplier! It took forever to find a suitable candy. I actually still prefer the flavour of the old one, but I think the new one is fine! If you bought the new one already, can you easily guess the flavour? 🙂

There are some distinct differences between this new batch and the previous one.

The new version:

✎ New print design
✎ Different type of paper
✎ Larger candy
✎ New flavour & ingredients (Glucose, Sugar, DL-malic acid, Artificial Flavors)

As a refresher, the old ingredients were: Sugar, malt syrup, glucose, food additives, citric acid, malic acid, flavour.

Update October 31st: Some of the candy packets are extra crumpled because they were squished during their arrival to me. I started putting those aside and I’m selling them at a large discount on this link, so feel free to grab those if you don’t mind their wrinkly appearance! (Note: The discount candy is now out of stock, but once the full candy restock is here, I will keep adding more discount candy periodically onto the same link!)

2-tips Matches: restock with minor differences

I’ve put up some new stock of the 2-tips matches online. The manufacturer has made some changes in the way they produce their matches now. They’re still the same size and function the same, but (in my opinion) are unfortunately aesthetically less pleasing now.

I’m naming these newer ones “Version 2” or “V2” because I feel they’re significantly different from my original product photos, so I want customers to be informed.

Version 1:
• Warmer shades of wood
• Match head appears more white & smooth

Version 2:
• Muted tones in the wood
• Match head appears more textured and grey

This may be the match we carry indefinitely as trying to switch suppliers is not a priority at the time, but feel free to leave any questions or comments!
