Our desktop marketing tips for small businesses can help you look professional.

One of the most common ways to advertise and promote a new or existing company is by using a business card. Outsourcing business cards to print shops can get expensive. Initially there are often minimum quantities. The price can also go up as the card is customized and personalized. Color and double-sided printing can also bring up the cost.

You may want to consider creating your own business cards. Most laser and ink-jet printers are capable of creating high-quality prints. Simple software can be used to create business cards. The cards can be created to your exact specifications.

Business Card CuttersOnce the cards are designed and printed, you can easily cut them out with a business card cutter. Business card cutters quickly cut cards to size and a high rate of speed. Business card cutters cut cards with a straight edge, unlike scissors that can make edges wavy and awkward. One such business card cutter is the Cardmate business card cutter. You can see our entire selection of business cards by going here.

Paper folders are another valuable addition to any office. They can be used to quickly fold a variety of pamphlets, brochures and other literature. We also recommend using equipment such as laminators, paper cutters and binding machines to help create marketing and advertising material.

If you need to print literature in high volumes, you should consider looking at a digital duplicator. They use ink, which costs far less than traditional toner found in many copy machines. You can see the difference in cost between toner-based copy machines and ink-based digital duplicators by going here.

If you are unable to afford office equipment to get your business up and running, remember that we offer several leasing options. Leasing is an effective way to get people into equipment they need now with little money up front.

ABC Office announces addition of Formax paper shredders.

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2006

Formax Control PanelWe are very excited about the addition of eight new Formax paper shredders to our lineup. We have sold Formax products for years. You may have heard of their popular folder inserters and paper folders. Due to our success in the paper shredder industry, we have been given almost exclusive distribution privileges.

We have had several Formax products set up on our display floor and I have had the chance to play around with the Formax FD8600CC. The first thing I noticed is how quiet the shredder is. The sound of the actual paper being shred is louder than the motor on this shredder. I have never heard a shredder so quiet. Because the Formax shredders are so quiet, they are perfect for use in areas where people are working. Compared to these shredders, comparable shredders sound like lawn mowers.

The shredders are made from durable solid metal. The menu on these shredders are very well laid out and easy to read. The mid to high-level shredders include a load indicator that let you know how much stress is being put on the motor. This helps you know whether or not you are putting too much paper into it. Putting the appropriate amounts of paper into a shredder will help prolong the shredder’s life.

I would highly recommend taking a look at the new shredders. If you are in need of a new shredder, you should try one of these out. I’m confident you’ll love it!
