Advantages Of A Kneeling Chair

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

If you’re like me and work in an office, you probably sit in a chair for good portion of the day. If you’re lucky, you’re using an ergonomic chair that conforms to your body for better posture and comfort. Regardless of the chair you are using, sitting in a chair all day long can take its toll on your back and neck. If you have already tried several chairs and still can’t seem to get comfortable, you may want to try a kneeling chair.

Kneeling chairs position your body in a way so that a lot of the pressure put on your lower back is directed towards your legs. This position is much more comfortable for many people and it isn’t uncommon for one using a kneeling chair to see a significant improvement in back pain. Kneeling chairs are also a great way to improve posture.

Many people look at a kneeling chair and immediately think, “that just doesn’t look comfortable.” Using a kneeling chair, due to the angles involved, is nothing like kneeling on the floor. These chairs are designed for ideal and optimum comfort. I have used one of these chairs personally and can vouch for its comfort.

We just recently added a Safco brand kneeling chair to our site. It is reasonably priced, in comparison to other office chairs. Please feel free to stop by our site and take a look. You can find it by clicking here.  You can see our entire selection of office chairs here.

Popular Cutting Blades & Digital Scrapbooking

Monday, July 13th, 2009

I have written several articles in the past about the best types of scrapbook paper cutters and would now like to cover some of the most popular types of blades. To start with, digital scrapbooking has significantly increased over the past five years, due in part to some great software and print-quality inkjet printers. Something digital scrapbooking is lacking is texture. Once the page is printed, albeit good looking, it lacks a certain dimension. How does this lead to paper cutting blades? Read on.

Just because digital scrapbooking looks flat doesn’t mean it’s all bad. This type of software can be used to print out some amazing patterns and pages after which photographs can be added. Adding photographs brings a layer of depth to the scrapbook page. Paper cutters can be used to cut borders around those photographs for a unique finished look.

Here at ABC Office the Carl RT-200 has been a favorite among our customers. This is because it has over 11 different blades that can be used. The blades can literally be snapped in and out for a different look. With 11 different blades to choose from, you’ll never get bored. Here are just a few examples of the unique blades we offer.

Polaroid 669 Film Replaced By FujiFilm FP-100C Instant Film

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Everyone’s favorite Polaroid 669 film has been replaced. Sad isn’t it? Although it has been gone for several months, we do get a lot of questions from customers regarding a replacement. Do not fret, there is a great replacement available.

Earlier this year Polaroid confirmed that they would stop making “Instant Film” that many of our photo ID and passport cameras use. Apparently this once popular film has fallen victim to the digital camera revolution. Polaroid 669 film was no exception.

Many people, however, really like the film. It requires no printer and can easily create instant photographs on site for identification and passport purposes. For this reason, we still sell a lot of Polaroid-style ID cameras (found here).

Still in need of instant film? You’re in luck. FujiFilm has a replacement that will work in all cameras that previously used Polaroid 669 film. This new film is called FujiFilm FP-100C Instant Film. We have a lot of it, it is priced about the same as the 669 film, and there is no indication that it will be going away anytime soon.

You can find our FujiFilm FP-100C here!
