MUJI Stamp Set Funny Face

Muji Funny Face stamp set

Add some personality to your sketch notes with these stamps from Muji. The great thing about this set is that only two or three of the stamps are immediately recognizable as parts of a face, so you can use this same set to improvise arrows, patterns and bullets. Buy Muji Funny Face stamp set here.
