Hot wire foam cutters from Riema. Create custom packaging and more!

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

We are always looking for new products and have just added some hot wire foam cutters from Riema. These new foam cutters are great for custom packaging and even for construction.

There are many uses of hard foam in construction and other industries: insulation of walls and roofs (such as rigid insulation, Insulated Concrete Forms, Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems), design work (like on stucco and architectural trim), concrete work, packaging, hobbies, and many more.

The problem many contractors run into while working with hard foam is its difficulty to be cut into a desired shape. Knifes and saws create un-even and jagged edges. Further, they are never exact, create an immense mess, and one small cut takes a long time to finish.

The L-G-S 135R foam cutter from Riema cuts through foam quickly and precisely without creating a large mess. We have a video demo of the L-G-S 135R that you can watch right here.

We are excited about our new relationship with Riema. Stop by our Web site and take a look at these new foam cutters. We can also demonstrate these foam cutters live over the Internet.

Jam-free shredders. Can it be true? New GBC Shredmaster "Jam-Free" shredders.

Friday, April 25th, 2008

You have more than likely experienced a jammed shredder in your lifetime. It could be from accidentally shredding too much paper, or if you’re like me, you simply like to push your shredder to the limit. Who hasn’t grabbed 30 sheets of paper and tried to run it through a shredder? Although that’s probably not such a good idea, regardless of the shredder you’re using, there is now a new line of shredders that tout the title of being “Jam Free.”

GBC, the makers of Shredmaster, recently released a new line of “jam-free” paper shredders. These new shredders have sensors that detect when too much paper is being fed through. The shredders will let you know, by means of a red LED, that too much paper is being fed through the machine. Simply cut down the sheets being fed and your off to shredding paper again. There are no jams, no grinding noises and no visits to the repair shop.

One thing I really like about these shredders, other than the “jam-free” capabilities, is that they look nice. They are easy on the eyes and aesthetically pleasing. They will easily fit right in into any office or home.

A few of the models include the:

GBC Shredmaster Jam Free Shredders

These shredders are available in strip cut and cross cut designs. We have a wide selection of paper shredders available, so stop by and look at the entire selection. Happy shredding!

Letter openers – What genius invented this marvel?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

You don’t often say, “What genius invented this?” when referring to a letter opener. That is exactly what I say, however, when presented with the task of opening hundreds or even thousands of letters at once. And no, I’m not referring to this kind of letter opener:

I’m talking about the Porche of letter openers. The machines that are fully mechanized and ready to open hundreds of letters in seconds. They range from hand-held electric letter openers to assembly-line style letter openers capable of handling bag loads of letters.

This is an example of a hand-held letter opener. It can be easily held in one hand, is completely portable and can be stored in a cupboard or desk drawer at the office.

Hand-Held Letter Opener

And this is an example of an industrial-strength letter opener. It is designed for high-volume industrial use. This is something you would see in a large business mail room. Although big, it is still relatively easy to set up and use.

Industrial-Strength Letter Opener

These letter openers are readily available at ABC Office. Take a look at this selection of letter openers.

Letter openers vary from speed, size and quality, but any of these models certainly beat using a pair of scissors, a knife or even your bare hands. Come and take a look. You’ll probably find something you like.
