3x5 jotters and cover-ready plastic

Hi.

Was wandering around Staples tonight and spotted these items.

Express Pocket Jotter (in blue Nylon). Has a jotter pocket on one side and two pockets on the rear for spare cards. Didn't think to look for a pen loop. $7.99

Style Pocket Jotter (in plain black or red vinyl). Same as above, $7.99.

Tech Pocket Jotter (in green or brown pseudo-skin texture). Same as above, $7.99.

Of course all of those are found next to a bunch of coordinating desk accessories. Spotted them on the endcaps, not in the aisles themselves.

Also, in the comb binding/laminating aisle, packages of plastic, pre-cut to letter size:
Clear View Presentation Covers
in packages of 12, 25, 50, or 100 in various grades and textures and colors of plastic. Prices range from $14 for 50 opaque plastic 'grain' texture covers to $45 for 100 transparent plastic covers (very like the spare parts I've got lying around, but possibly lighter weight). These have no holes and most of them have square corners. They are waiting to be punched. The size is 8.75 x 11.25 inches.

Laura stole a march on me in another thread and mentioned she saw the covers too--but here are the prices and package sizes at least. :)

Sorry, shris!

You are, of course, the goddess in these here parts. I was just excited to have something worthwhile to contribute!

I haven't figured out the jotters or the hPDAs yet. (Though I strongly suspect that I am just too, well, wordy to use them. Darn writing genes!)

Hi Laura.

Never mind calling me a goddess. I'm a newcomer in this forum. I was just excited walking around Staples thinking I might have found something the Rolla/Circa lovers would like. :) Silly me.

The universe will always find a way to tweak your nose. :)

Staples

shris,

My parents babysat today so I could go to Staples. Okay, I also had a doctor's appointment, but I'll be honest about where my interest really was!! I sat in the waiting room, sketching notes for my new (circa) planner design in the starter set I got at Levenger last weekend. And then I wandered around Staples (sans toddler) and felt like a little kid in a candy store.

My parents think my affection for office supplies is nuts. My husband is tolerant. (I think his words were something to the effect that I was a nerd but cute or some such.) Until I stumbled on this site, I thought I was all along in my addiction... :)

Picky Picky

Hi.

OK, now you're just getting picky. :p

Go to the Staples website (www.staples.com) and type "GBC Clearview" in the search box. That will take you straight to the entire list.

Not picky

just lazy :)

More covers

Hi.

MyBinding.com seems to have a whole page of different kinds of cover materials..

Linkety Link

Covers...

I wonder if printing places that do copying/binding would sell plain cover page(s)? I loved the ones on that link, but they're in packs of 100. That's 200 classic-sized covers!! 8-O

Nice Find

I saw those too at Staples, they are nice, not as nice as Levenger but cute....
BUT, I was just wondering, does anyone else have issues with being helped TOO MUCH in Staples? Everytime I go there (about 2x a week/ yes I'm addicted;) Every single crew member asks me at least once if I need help.

Then again maybe its a regional thing.

working retail

A lot of companies train their employees to interact with any customer that is within earshot. Throughtout high school and college, I worked for a company that had a time table for each customer that walked in. (greeting within 2 minutes, followup within 5 minutes, etc). And if it meant multiple employees 'assaulting' the same customer, that was encouraged.

I think some customers complain if they aren't helped and then corporate gets scared and comes up with the "GO GET'EM" mentality.

I can't complain...

...about the overly helpful people at Staples. I spend too much time at Home Despot, where you could go into labor and give birth in one of the aisles, and no one would even peer down the aisle to see what all the moaning and screaming was about.
