Sanford – PaperMate and Sharpie
By now, you’ve probably realized that I am a bit of a stationary junky. I’ve been obsessed with stationary products since I was a child and it’ll probably continue forever. Quite frequently, I work with Shoplet and review the different office supplies that they have. This time around, I received products from Sanford.
PaperMate Mates Easy-to-hold Mechanical Pencils:
Make the switch to easy-to-hold mechanical pencils called Mates. Mates mechanical pencils feature a triangular barrel design so they’re comfortable to hold. The 1.3mm, No. 2 HB lead is designed for less breakage and never needs sharpening.
The PaperMate Mechanical Pencils are so fun and unique looking. These are the perfect pencils for little kids. Matter of fact, I passed them off to a co-worker of my Mothers and they gave them to their son. This will be his first year in school and he is excited to use them. He actually started using them now, even though his parents didn’t want him to, and says that he loves them. They are easy for his little hands to hold, as the mechanical pencil has a triangle shape, thus his fingers can fit perfectly on the pencil. The eraser is nice and big, and easy to use. The lead is thicker, so it does not break as often, making it an even better pencil for a child.
PaperMate Liquid Paper DryLine Grip Correction Tape:
Correction tape with grip applicator provides maximum comfort and ease-of-use. It is great for correcting single or multiple lines of text before copying or faxing. Super strong white tear-proof film resists breaking and applies dry for instant corrections.
The PaperMate Correction Tape was immediately taken by Mother and brought to her work. She uses it quite frequently on her client’s accounts and papers when she needs to change things. She says it is easy to use, is comfortable in your hand, and has a stylish look to it. The one thing she really likes about the PaperMate Correction Tape is that it does not make a mess as the true liquid does – there is no waiting for it to dry or anything.
Sharpie Electro Pop Permanent Markers:
Permanent marker features bold, energetic colors to help you create captivating effects that are sure to stand out. Quick-drying ink is fade-resistant and water-resistant to create marks that will last. Ultra-fine point lets you thin, precise lines for detailed work. Assorted colors include optic orange, techno blue, ultra violet, nano blue and electric pink.
I have personally used the Sharpie Markers a few different times. They have a nice, bright, and bold color to them. They have an ultra-fine tip, which I sometimes do not do well with, as I have a tendency to push down hard when I am writing or using markers. However, the tips seem to be holding up. The packaging is fun and unique, as well. There is only one problem – the tops are hard as hell to get off the Sharpie Markers. You have to use quite some force to get them removed. These WILL bleed through, so make sure you have an extra piece of paper behind whatever you are writing on.
PaperMate InkJoy Ballpoint Comfortable Grip Ultra Smooth Ink:
Retractable ballpoint pens feature Paper Mate’s revolutionary InkJoy writing system, giving you the best in effortless writing. The InkJoy writing system starts quickly without dragging, requires minimal pressure from your hand, and delivers crisp, clean lines every time. Extended rubberized grip provides optimal comfort.
The PaperMate Pens are my favorite of all the products that was received from Sanford and Shoplet. The first thing that I liked was all the different colors of the pens – the outside of the pens are different colors, but the ink is, too! You will receive eight different colors; the black and blues were taken immediately by my mother and brought to her job. She uses them every day. I am a big fan of the pink and purple colored pens and use them almost every day. I love how smoothly they write on a variety of surfaces, without smearing all over. They are comfortable to write with and very stylish looking!
Overall, the products received from Shoplet and Sanford were great products that we highly recommend!
