College is the ultimate time for self-expression, and the first place to start is in your dorm room. With Redbubble’s expansive art marketplace, you can deck out your space with indie accessories that speak to who you are, showcase what your latest obsession is or simply add a personal touch to the otherwise blank canvas that is a college dorm. Let your friends and roommates know what your interests are by hanging a poster packed with personality from one of Redbubble’s thousands of colorful options. You can also personalize your bed with unique duvet covers or fun accessories like this Wheel of Emotions Throw Pillow that is sure to be a conversation starter.

From classroom supplies to desk accessories, there are plenty of opportunities to incorporate playful designs that make your day brighter and put a smile on your students’ faces. Whether you’re in the market for a cheery travel mug to keep you caffeinated in the classroom, a convenient tote bag to organize your supplies or a motivational poster to keep your students engaged, Redbubble has got you covered for back-to-school shopping.

High school students can ease into the new school year by making sure their school supplies are as fun as their summer was. Everything from homework to locker hangouts can be personalized with Redbubble’s creative accessories like backpacks, spiral notebooks and phone cases. Students heading into high school may also consider adorning their notebooks, laptops and water bottles with lighthearted stickers like this Plant Friends Sticker.

For grade-school students

Back-to-school shopping begins in grade school, so why not make it a fun tradition for years to come? Grade-school students need all of the basics, from a backpack to a pencil case and, of course, new clothes. Encourage creativity and self-expression at a young age by opting for unique, art-driven school supplies and tees like this Space Travel Kids T-Shirt instead of the standard picks.
