It's that time of year again: back to school shopping season. Students of all ages are picking out the perfect backpacks and choosing the cutest laptop sleeves, carefully selecting the ones that will (fingers crossed!) make the best impression on the first day of school. It's easy to get lost in a sea of similar-looking backpacks, but for those who really want to stand out on the first day, we've found the site for you. Society6 is home to hundreds of thousands of artists from around the world who share their original designs, which then get turned into consumer goods, including backpacks, tech cases, notebooks, pillows, rugs, and more. Not only will you get a phone case or a pillow cover no one else in your school or dorm will have, but your purchase will also help support an artist.

Ready to make your classmates jealous? Shop some of our back-to-school favorites below, then head to Society6 to scope out thousands of more designs.
