Expanding Envelopes Great for Storing Student Hand-Outs

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

In the classroom, Fridays are often the day when students receive all the paperwork back from the entire week. Their quizzes are graded and homework pages are returned with teacher’s comments. Additionally, many teachers like to pass out hand-outs for what’s to come in the next week, so parents and students are aware.

All of this paperwork can become somewhat cumbersome for students to organize. Utilizing a Kleer-fax Expanding Envelope would not only allow kids to keep the pages together, but it also provides protection from the rough environment of a child’s backpack.

Hand-outs can be secured in the envelopes with the cloth tie, which helps eliminate any document loss. The one-piece construction envelopes are comprised of recycled stock, which is 10% post-consumer waste.

The envelopes, available from letter size to 26 x 20, can expand to 1 or 2 inches wide, depending on the size that is selected. The variety of sizes available will help to accommodate what type of information the envelopes will be storing.

C-Line Combines Extension Cord and Cover into One Useful Product

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

In factories and other industrial settings, there are large machines being used that need to be strategically placed by electric outlets to ensure that there is a power source nearby. Although this is an ideal situation, it is not realistic to have all equipment close to outlets.

Instead, companies must use extension cords to help expand the reach of the outlet. C-Line has a product that combines a cord cover with a lengthy extension cord.  The Lay-Flat Power Extension and Cord Cover is made from a flexible PVC, moisture resistant material, so it can withstand heavy foot traffic.

The 16 gauge cord is available in 5 or 10 foot lengths and it is ready to use with grounded AC duplex receptacles. The cover goes right over the cord to help hide them as they run across the floor. The cover also provides a smooth surface for employees to step over instead of trying to avoid the round cord.

This extension cord and cover is available in black, making it looking professional, while also being suitable for the industrial environment.

Large Dry Erase Sheets Used to Communicate with Employees

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

When there are a large number of employees within a company, sometimes it can be difficult to keep everyone involved and up to speed on how business is doing. Many companies utilize newsletters to keep their staff in the loop, but this can often become time consuming.

GoWrite’s Dry Erase Sheets provide an interesting approach to communicating with employees.

Available in a large, 17 x 24 size, the dry erase sheet can be used to write down current goals of the company or major accomplishments that have been reached. By using a dry erase marker, the content written on the board can easily be updated or erased entirely.

The self-adhesive backing of the sheet allows it to be placed on almost any flat surface. Attach the sheet to a wall in the lunch room or a door in the break room. The main goal is to choose a location that is public so all of the employees will have an opportunity to see the dry erase sheet at some point throughout their work day.

Using the GoWrite sheets to write and publicize things like employee accomplishments and company news makes it a great tool to utilize in the office.
