Want to be featured on Super Cute Kawaii? We’d love to hear from you! Currently, we are regularly sharing submissions in Discover New Shops posts.
Before you submit your shop…
1. Are your products cute?
Obviously cuteness is subjective but take a look at our recent posts and make sure your submission fits in with the sort of things we post about.
2. Are your products original and authentic?
We do not support copyright infringement so please only submit original work and official licensed products. That does include fan art – it’s fine if you have some fan art in your shop but we want to see your original designs. If you sell character goods, we expect to see that you are a licensed reseller and that product titles include the character names and brands.
3. Is your shop trustworthy?
SCK is based in the UK and while your country may not have the same consumer rights, we would expect to see clear information that your shop can be trusted. This includes your location, where you can ship to, upfront shipping costs, payment provider logos, returns & refunds information, privacy page, cookie banner, contact information etc. If much of this is not available, it’s difficult for us to recommend you to our readers.
4. Do you have good photographs?
However amazing your products are, if the photos are fuzzy, cluttered, obscured by large watermarks or too small (under 400px) we won’t feature you.
5. Is your shop ready for a feature?
We mostly feature products that our readers are able to buy from a reputable shop. So we won’t feature your art portfolio or your Facebook page. We like to see a good range of products (at least 8 for new shops) that work well together. Our readers are all over the world so if you can’t ship internationally (or at least to the USA, UK, Europe & Canada), you won’t be making the most of the promotion. While we can’t guarantee to send a lot of shoppers your way, make sure you are ready to fulfil a lot of orders, just in case!
Things we DON’T feature
- Unlicensed fan art that you sell for personal profit. If you have permission to use popular characters, please make that clear. Otherwise, skip the fan art and submit your original designs.
- Baby and kids stuff. While some of our readers are parents, we mainly promote products aimed at adults or that child-free adults can also enjoy.
- Kickstarter Projects, specifically ones that are just basically pre-orders. If you have a really unique one, or we’ve featured your work before, feel free to try us! Otherwise, consider our affordable advertising opportunities instead.

Running an event?
We’d love to hear from you too! It’s free to be included in our Kawaii Events page and monthly newsletter – just use our contact form including a web link and dates. We’re always interested in ticket giveaways/offers for our readers and the opportunity to send someone to cover the event in person. We currently have writers based in central Scotland (UK), the Netherlands (EU) and Georgia (USA).
We do not accept unsolicited guest posts under any circumstances and emails on the subject will be dealt with as spam. If you would sincerely like to write for SCK (and not for thinly-disguised spam advertorial), keep reading the blog for opportunities – we usually hire an intern for the summer and occasionally add new writers to the team.
Reviews and Giveaways
If your product is a kit, app or something else that benefits from seeing it in use, we often review products. Review posts can also run alongside a giveaway. Read more about sponsoring a review or giveaway.
We have advertising spots available for kawaii shops and sites – see our advertising page for more details and rates. Advertisers are featured regularly in our Super Cute Sponsor slot on Saturdays and on social media.
