Laminated Calendar Expands Over an 18-Month Period

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Getting organized is often easier than maintaining it throughout the year. Whether you aimed at keeping your home office clutter-free or made a resolution to keep files in order, it is never too late to recommit to goals that you once had for yourself.

One major factor in keeping information organized is by tracking deadlines and appointments in order to always be mindful of important dates. Utilizing a calendar can be helpful to accomplishing this goal. In addition, it can make information more visible to the individual.

Understandably, people may not want to go out and purchase a traditional 12-month calendar that will only be used for half the year. Fortunately, House of Doolittle has kept this in mind when developing their line of calendars.

The Four Seasons Reversible 18-month Write-on/ Wipe-off Wall Planner is ideal for any home or work office.  Purchasing it halfway through the year is not an issue, since one side of the planner goes from July 2012 to June 2013.

The wall planner, which is 34 x 37 inches, is heavily laminated, allowing the surface to be wiped clean with a damp cloth once a water soluble marker is used on it. Additionally, the calendar comes with a self-adhesive hanger.

What are your thoughts on this type of calendar? Tell us below.

File Jacket Label & Handle All-in-One

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

File jackets are a great place to store numerous files in one central location. They become particularly helpful when trying to file away files from previous years. Taking all your prospective accounts, for example, and storing them within one file jacket helps to group all the information together.

When the jacket is stored on a self, it may not be easy to identify if there are numerous holders being store in one space. Writing on the file’s gusset is an option, but it does eliminate any potential for reuse. Instead, Kleer-fax has developed a laser/inkjet compatible label-handle combination tool that can be used.

Kleer-fax Jazz Bands, which come in five color selections, have the ability to identify file jackets, while making it easy to retrieve. By printing on the labels, you are creating a professional, customized tag that makes it easy to know what type of information is stored in the file jacket.

The label can also be used as a handle, making the jacket easy to retrieve. In addition, using the handle will extend the lifestyle of the file jacket by eliminating the potential for the gusset to tear or stretch.
