While we have no copper kettles or warm woolen mittens, Office Essentials does have access to a lot of “things” to offer our clients—so as you might expect, out of a universe of thousands of items, we do have some favorite new office products for 2020!
If you had the opportunity to attend one of our open house events last year, you may recognize a few of these items. They will all boost your productivity in some way around your office—and also are pretty cool, too!
Scotch Flex & Seal Shipping Roll received the most votes during an OE employee poll earlier this month! This genius product features three layers to provide water and tear resistance, the cushioning of your item, and a guaranteed secure seal—all in one product. Cut off the exact amount of material needed to fit your item, and “gray to gray makes it stay!” AND once you remove the shipping label, the product is recyclable. It’s the trifecta– save on cost, time, and carbon. Trust me, you’ll LOVE what this does for you.
The S Gel Pen from Sharpie is one sexy pen about to take the world by storm. With a sleek modern design, this high performing gel pen has the “no smear, no bleed” technology we love from Sharpie. Great for lefties! Fair warning—this one is so popular it won’t stay in stock!
With the sit-to-stand initiative taking off in many of our corporate client offices, I love this Sit or Stand Mat! Keep in mind, you should not stand all day at your workstation if you have the capability. The key to helping your body feel better at the end of your shift is to vary your position. This mat gives you the option to roll your chair around in addition to providing a unique foam cushion to act as an anti-fatigue mat when you stand.
I’m a bit of a germaphobe, and this time of year is my least favorite. However, our friends at Purell have a “go to” product for my house and office area with their Surface Disinfectant. This stuff provides a broad spectrum, one-step surface disinfectant. Workplace wellness is on the rise with this one!
Last but not least, for the coffee lovers in the office, you must try the Folgers Coffee Filter Packs. These little gems are a filter and the perfect amount of coffee grounds all in one. No fighting over the taste of the coffee from one pot to the next, no messy grounds to clean up! The red seal around the outside of the filter absorbs the water that normally would be lost when the hot water hits the top of the pack and pushes it back down to ensure a uniform brew, every time.
