Shoplet Artistic Review

We’re back with another Shoplet Artistic Review. Shoplet offers great Office Supplies and Office Stationery at great prices! They have things that I never knew existed for the office! I have fallen in love with there site and I’m sure you will love them too! I received the Artistic Rhinolin II Desk Pad to review!

Shoplet Artistic Review

 

I love how many features this desk pad has! Even though it is pretty plain it is a smooth writing surface, has anti-glare to not strain your eyes while you are trying to write, and even has Microban antimicrobial protection! I could tell immediately that this was going to be a great product. Sadly, I do not have an actual desk to work on. However I do have a rather large heater in our living room that I use as a desk because we no longer run it and our landlord won’t replace it or get rid of it altogether, but that’s a story for another day. I am always worried that if I put something small on top of it that it will fall in through the cracks.

With this pad I was able to make the heater into more of a desk than it was before. Now I can actually write on it and keep everything more clean and organized. We live in a oddly large awkward shaped triplex. So there is hardly any room for anything, at least in the areas that would make the most sense. So getting this pad maybe the most simplest fix and I wish I would have thought of it sooner!

I love that it looks so great it makes everything looks on this pad too! It would add a nice touch to any desk! It also is safe for all desk surfaces, so you don’t have to worry about you desk pad scratching up your desk.

Shoplet also has a site for Promotional Products and they even have Promotional Shirts! You can find anything you need for your office from Shoplet. Be sure to check them out!

Shoplet: Avery Product Review

I am always excited when I hear that I get to participate in another Shoplet review. This time around they sent me some wonderful Avery products. I have always been a fan of Avery products, in fact when I buy products for school or anything else they are my go-to products.

Shoplet.com - Office Supplies from Staples to Printer Paper

Shoplet offers great prices on really great office products. They always have the latest and greatest products and I love just looking at what cool new stuff they have!

I received an Avery Flexi-View Ring Presentation View Binder, Ready Index Contemporary Table Of Contents Dividers, Round Easy Peel Labels, Blank Printer Compatible Tags with Strings, and Tri-Fold Brochure with Tear-Away Cards. I have fallen in love with all of these products and I love how many things you can do with all of them!

First I will start off with the Flexi-View Binder. I really love this binder! I have been using it for my blog organizer. Before I had a similar flexible binder, but it was so flexible that it kept falling behind the couch so I was very excited to have this new one. While it is flexible it is still sturdy. My old one also was somewhat see through, so you could see that there was something inside but you couldn’t see what is was. I love that this binder has the opening in the front so that you can put a cover inside. I think it would be great for any business to have one!

Another thing that I love about this binder is that it also has a slit in the back to hold loose papers as well as a business card. I have been using this area to keep all the press releases and representative cards for the reviews that I am working on. It is VERY high quality, and probably one of the best plastic binders I have ever owned!

Next up is the Ready Index Dividers. While they are pretty great in quality, I did not enjoy these as much as I thought I would.

I do love the colors, but I really do not prefer the table of contents over being able to write on the tabs themselves. I got rid of the table of contents for my binder and now I am much happier. The ends where the hole punches are is reinforced which is great because I swear every time I buy dividers they end up ripping out of the binder. If you are looking for great dividers with a table on contents included this would be perfect!

Next up are these great Printable Tags with Strings. I am still not sure what I will use these for, but I would imagine that they would be great for a small business for price tags or even for luggage tags for someone who travels a lot. I love that you can print them from your computer and I really like the strings that come with them. I like that they are not your typical plastic ties that are ridiculously hard to take off. They seem to be really sturdy and add a little extra flair to the tags.

Just like with the Printable Tags, these round labels have me stumped as far as what I could use them for in my home. I know that I used to make homemade candles and I think these would have been perfect to add a special touch to my candles. Since I am no longer making candles I am thinking about making name labels for my girls toys, or really anything that should have our names on them. The labels themselves are not your average printable labels that seem like they would rip apart when you try to stick them to something which is something I really appreciate. I just want to go nuts and label everything in my house because I am that type of person, but these would be great for those that make and sell products that would love to have their logo attached to the product itself or even the packaging.

This product is one of my favorites of the bunch! These brochures with tear-away cards are great because not only are they perfect quality for brochures, but they also have 4 tear away cards that you can use for business cards, coupons and so much more! My parents recently opened their very own Senior care home, so I offered them up to create affordable personalized brochures for their business.

I was very impressed with Avery because I thought I was going to spend hours trying to find the right program and the right template to be able to create these brochures, but I was happy to find out that you can go to Avery’s website and find lot’s of great templates and their website is super easy to navigate.

Be sure to check out Shoplet.com for all your office related product needs. I know that school is starting soon, so make sure to check out their website here for great prices on all your school necessities!

Take your writing to a whole new level! BIC Review

Now that I am back in school having a great pen to write with is even more important! Thanks to BIC and Shoplet.com I now have many great options to choose from, and of course review for you! I tend to become obsessed with a good pen, and will have multiple backups of my favorites in case I lose one or in case one runs out of ink. Luckily the pens I am going to share with you are very inexpensive so you can have your cake and eat it too. Or well, you can have your pen and write with it too.

First up is the BIC Atlantis Ballpoint Retractable Pen. I used to buy these pens all the time! Not only are they great pens, but they also come in many different colors! I’m sure by now you have noticed my obsession with colors. These pens feature BIC’s Easy-Glide System that is up to 35% more smooth than traditional BIC pens. I received samples of their blue pens, and they are just as great as when I originally started buying them! The Atlantis pens are great to have around when you need a pen that won’t let you down.
Since I am such a pen fanatic I am always looking for a pen that is not only functional, but that is girly. The BIC for Her line really takes the whole “girly” concept to a whole new level! These pens are not only very sleek, but they have some really pretty designs on them. They come in pink and purple but feature black ink. So for those of us that are not really supposed to write with colored ink, we can still have our fun! While they may not have as smooth of writing as the Atlantis pens, they are still very smooth and are super easy to write with!

I seem to have a hard time finding good permanent markers whether I am looking for one at home, or whether I am searching for new ones in a store. Sure you can buy the expensive brands that you know will work, but if you are like me you need something inexpensive that you won’t be upset about if you lose. BIC’s Mark-it Grip Permanent Markers not only are they great, and inexpensive, but they also have a grip on them! Not only that but they are non-toxic! I love having these markers around, you can use them for just about anything!
My favorite pen of the bunch may not be the prettiest in the bunch, but is really quite amazing! The BIC Velocity Roller Ball Retractable Pen really lives up to its name! The Velocity pen features Permanent acid-free, fade-resistant gel ink. They provide skip-free smooth writing that is vibrant and easy to see, which is what I love most about these pens! Some pens either are light to begin with, fade over time, or fade from smudges, but you don’t have to worry about either with this pen! Being in a medical class I have to take a lot of notes very quickly about things I still am not quite sure I understand so nothing is worse than going back over my notes and not being able to see what I had written. With the Velocity pen I can rest easy knowing that I can go over my notes at any time and they will still be there! I think that everyone should have at least one of these pens at all times! I know that I have 3 of them in my backpack right now!
Last but most certainly not least is the BIC Wite-out EZ Correct Correction tape. We all make mistakes, and when you are obsessed with pens it is even easier to make them. Luckily for us BIC also makes correction tape so that we can start over. I love that this tape is super easy to use, and you don’t have to wait for it to dry like most correction pens. Also unlike most correction tape it doesn’t break as easily. Every time I go to use other brand versions of correction tape the applicator breaks before I can even use it. I was very happy that I could actually use this one!
If you are looking for dependable products for your office needs make sure to check out BIC at Shoplet.com. They have tons of different products and you are sure to find ones that are right for you. They also have some really great prices!

Cool Westcott Products For the Holidays

Shoplet.com - Office Supplies from Staples to Printer Paper
Wrapping presents during the Holidays can be a real pain. Luckily we can find products to help us make wrapping presents more easily, and Westcott has some great products that you should know about. I was able to receive three great products from Shoplet.com to review for you: Westcott Titanium Bonded 8″ Non-Stick Straight Scissors, Westcott Kids Scissors With Microban Protection, and a Westcott Scissor Mouse.

The first thing I am going to talk about is the Westcott Titanium Bonded 8″ Non-Stick Straight Scissors. I just love how sturdy the name makes these scissors sound. What’s great is that they look even better! I love that the blades are more of a sparkly silver color than the traditional stainless steel color. The handles are more comfortable than any other scissors I have used which made them very easy to use.
This is the description from Shoplet.com:

“The very latest technology from Westcott combines titanium with a unique non-stick coating that is permanently bonded to the blades, delivering improved cutting performance. Blades are five times harder than stainless steel, stay sharper longer and are resistant to adhesives such as glue, adhesive tape and Velcro. For left or right hand use. Cut Length: 3 1/4″ Scissor Length: 8″ Tip Type: Pointed.”

I love that they are coated and resistant to glues and tapes. I know that this is not office or really Holiday related, but I like to use tape to decorate my nails and I always get the tape stuck to the scissors and it is extremely difficult to get it off. These scissors are great for craft projects because you don’t have to worry about things getting stuck to them.

Next up is the Westcott Kids Scissors With Microban Protection. I remember using kids scissors when I was a kid, and I always hated how they wouldn’t actually cut what I wanted them to cut. These scissors actually work great, and have the protected edges. So you get the best of both worlds. My daughter loved that she had her own scissors and immediately starting cutting the wrapping paper. She was so excited that she could help me wrap some presents. Here is the description of the kids scissors from Shoplet.com:

“Stainless steel safety blades. Perfect for cutting projects, in the classroom or at home. Handles infused with Microban antimicrobial product protection to inhibit the growth of bacterial odors. Cut Length: 2″ Scissor Length: 5″ Tip Type: Blunt.”

What I think is extra special about these scissors is that they have the Microban Protection Coating. I know that my girls will be protected from germs with these scissors, and I know that they will be easy to clean when they are done with them.

Last but not least is the Westcott Scissor Mouse. It looks like a computer mouse, but it has a blade on the bottom so you can use it to safely cut your wrapping paper or craft paper. I really like that the blade is hidden so that you won’t cut yourself or anything else but the paper that you are trying to cut. So not only is it great for adults, but it is great for kids of all ages too! Here is the description from Shoplet.com

“This revolutionary device acts like rolling scissors and its ergonomic design won’t harm surfaces. The scissor mouse cuts with a smooth paper slicing action which makes gift wrapping a breeze! It’s great for cutting paper, coupons and craft projects on flat surfaces with speed and precision safely. Cuts straight lines or long waves. Blade is not exposed making it safe for adults and kids to use on any surface.”

One thing I did not like about the Scissor Mouse was that it needs to be used on a flat surface like a table. I have ALWAYS wrapped my presents on the floor and the Mouse does not like carpet. When I used it on the table it worked great, so for future crafts with the girls, or anything else that I may be doing on the table this would be great! As long as you are using it on a table it works great, and is pretty simple to use. I think that they should have designed it a little differently by having it be two pieces joined together by the blade so that you can slide the paper in between the two pieces to cut it. That way you could use it on any surface. Either way, this little guy will be something I can give the girls and not have to worry about them getting cut, or hurting any of mommies things.

Overall I thought that these products were great, and that they would be a wonderful addition to any home. I am glad that I got these in time for the holiday season and they have already helped me wrap many presents, and I’m sure they will wrap many more in their time. You can find these and other great products on Shoplet.com

Zebra Pens Review

I absolutely love pens! Especially ones that have pretty colors, but who wouldn’t? I was very excited to learn about my first review for shoplet.com. I was even more excited when I saw my pens, and noticed that one was purple, which if you haven’t guessed by now is one of my favorite colors!
Out of the 8 pens I received this purple Zebra Z-Mulsion EX Ballpoint Pen was my favorite. Not only is it my favorite color, but it is a wonderful pen. It fits perfectly into my hands, and it writes extremely smooth. There’s nothing I don’t like about this pen! It’s the perfect size, the perfect color, had a rubber grip so that it doesn’t slip, and is very comfortable and easy to use. I have not had any issues with this pen, and I don’t think it will ever let me down!

This next pen was another favorite of the bunch. It is the Zebra F-301 Retractable Ballpoint Pen.

While the ink may not be a pretty color, it is definitely a wonderful pen. It writes extremely smooth, even more so than the Z-Mulsion pen, and makes it very easy to write. While it is a little heavier then I would think it would be because it is a small pen compared to most similar pens, it was not too heavy which was nice. The grip is not rubber like I would like, but does have texture to it which makes it easy to grip. The pen itself is very stylish, and would look great on any desk.

Zebra offers many different writing products like these pens, and even pencils. After trying the products I received I can definitely say that Zebra is my new go to pen company, and I will gladly be purchasing more in the future.
You can find more Zebra products, along with tons of really awesome office supplies on Shoplet’s website here.
