It is pretty safe to say that if one customer has a question regarding a product, there are probably several others out there with the same question.Subscribers, and customers, are more than welcome to send us questions anytime. They will always be answered and may even be featured in the newsletter.

The “Ask Dave” newsletter goes out on a monthly basis. The newsletter usually features a few promotions exclusively available to newsletter subscribers. The format of the newsletter usually includes about three to four questions with answers. Industry news is sometimes mentioned in the newsletter as well.

Security equipment has changed significantly over the past decade with the invention of the DVR.

January 5th, 2007

Here at ABC Office we have traditionally sold office automation equipment and supplies. One thing you may not be aware of is that we also specialize in security equipment as well. Products include anti-theft devices, metal detectors, camera systems and more. One of our biggest selling pieces of security equipment are our DVR recorders.

DVR recorders are capable of digitally recording security video fed to them from security camera systems. Traditional VHS-style recorders are decreasing in popularity as DVR or Digital Video Records bring the ability to record more video at a higher resolution. This data is not only clearer, but itis also very easy to review the video.
DVR Security Recorder
Traditional VHS-style recorders utilized a multiplexer to help organize multiple security cameras for recording. Most DVR recorders have multiplexers built in for convenience. Many DVR systems are capable of recording hundreds of hours of video and eliminate the need of a tape. Video outputs make it easy to
transfer video to a tape if needed.

You can see our entire selection of DVR security recorders by going here. Take a look and order your DVR recorder today!

How safe are your torn-up credit card applications?

November 14th, 2006

Paper ShreddersOver the past week or two, you have probably received at least one or two credit card applications. If you’re like most people, you probably throw them in the garbage. If you’re concerned about the application being stolen, you may tear the envelope in half or quarters.

This may put your mind at rest, but some ambitious criminals don’t mind using a little Scotch tape to patch things up. Taped credit card applications are often accepted regardless. Although tearing a credit card application up isn’t a bad idea, weeding out most ID thieves, it is not fraud proof. This is certainly better than doing nothing.

Although dumpster diving is legal in most states, what they do with that information can make it illegal. The best failsafe to prevent dumpster divers is by using a good cross cut shredder. I keep a shredder in my own home office and shred anything that has personal information or applications.

Shredders are great at home or in the office. I recommend having one in both places. The price of a shredder is nothing in comparison to damaged credit or identity theft. You can see our entire line of paper shredders by going here.

The home office made easy, with a little help from ABC Office

November 3rd, 2006

Office FurnitureHave you ever wanted to try and create your own home office, but may have limited space or money? Perhaps you are tired of using that old card table as a desk. We have a wide selection office furniture and accessories.

To begin with, I would recommend getting rid of that card table or old desk and try using a workstation. We have some nice looking Leda workstations that can be used at home, or even in the office. They use a modern design and are great for getting maximum use with limited space.

I would also recommend a filing cabinet for keeping track of paperwork. We have a variety of cabinets from Leda designed to take up little space while keeping things organized. They are set on casters and are easy to move around. This makes re-arranging the office easy.

The final piece of furniture needed to complete your office is a nice chair. You may be working (or gaming) in your office for hours and may need a nice place to sit. Our office chairs are ergonomic and designed to help support your body while providing maximum comfort. We have a wide variety of office chairs to choose from.

We have a wide variety of office furniture, including custom wood furnishings. Feel free to stop by and take a look.

Cutting has never been so precise! Rotatrim paper cutters.

October 27th, 2006

Who would have thought the pizza cutter to be such an ingenious invention! Why? For eating pizza? That much is obvious. Circular blades are also used in rotary paper cutters, which are great for cutting paper, photographs lamination and more.

Rotary paper cutters
have a round blade that spins as it is run across paper. The round blade slices through the paper with the push of a hand. The round blade is encased in a housing that sits on a rail. This rail is firmly mounted to a base, eliminating any movement that could cause a crooked cut.
Rotatrim Paper Cutters
Rotary paper cutters are very popular with professional photographers who have to make sure every cut counts. Not only does a straight cut make a finished product look good, but it also saves money by eliminating ruined material.

Rotatrim is by far THE most popular rotary cutter we sell here at ABC Office. Rotatrim paper cutters are made in England with the highest quality parts available. This cutter can also cut through paper, card stock, laminated documents and other material.

What else is there to like about the Rotatrim cutters? For one, they ship for free. Being that we are centrally located in the United States, this means you will have your cutter in a matter of a few business days.

You don’t have to be a professional photographer to enjoy one of these beauties. These trimmers are also widely used for home projects, copy shops, schools and other businesses. Take a look for yourself and order your own Rotatrim paper trimmer today!

Digital voice recorders capture hours of audio with a device the size of a cell phone.

October 20th, 2006

Digital Voice RecordersAlthough it may be nothing new, digital voice recorders have surpassed the popularity of traditional cassette tape recorders. You may not have had this problem lately, but traditional cassette tape recorders were notorious for eating tapes and making a big mess. Reliability wasn’t guaranteed. Most compact cassette tapes were incapable of recording for more than 45 minutes!

Digital voice recorders don’t use any tape at all. None! I can’t even begin to tell you how nice that is. Digital voice recorders are also capable of recording audio for hours. Our highest-end recorder can record audio for up to 65 hours! That equals out to be about 86 cassette tapes. The audio doesn’t degrade over time either. Traditional tapes could only be used a couple of times before the audio worsened.

Our digital voice recorders are also very compact, the largest being only 3.4-inches tall. They can easily fit into a purse or pocket. The recorded data can later be transferred to a computer for storage or for editing. Feel free to stop by and take a look for yourself.

I have used them myself and can assure you that you will not be disappointed.

ABC Office now has its own brand of money counters.

October 13th, 2006

ABC1150 Money CounterWe have been selling money counters, coin counters and counterfeit detectors for years now and have seen the demand increase. Due to this success we have decided to manufacture our own brand of money counters
& money handling equipment. These new line of counters carries the brand ABC and are available in several models. Because we manufacture the money counters ourselves, we can pass the production line savings on to you.

Two of the new products are bill counters, designed to quickly count bills in seconds. These models are the ABC1150 and ABC5500. Both models are available with counterfeit money detectors built inside. When a
counterfeit bill is detected, the machine alerts the user to the problem. Both these new money counters can be found here.
ABC440 Coin CounterThe third new addition is the ABC440 coin counter. This coin counter can take hands full of coins and quickly sorts them and gives you a total monetary and denominational total. Banks, retailers and other
organizations that handle money on a daily basis commonly use it. The ABC440 brings ABC Office’s total line of coin counters to six.

The last two new products that ABC Office manufactures are counterfeit money detectors. These models are the ABC-75 and the ABC-95. Both these units use UV light to detect security strips found in most U.S. bills. They also have magnetic sensors capable of detecting magnetic ink found in U.S. currency. A built-in light makes it possible to see watermarks as well. These new counterfeit detectors can be found here.

Top-secret shredders are designed to shred the most sensitive documents.

September 7th, 2006

The government doesn’t use just any shredder when it comes to shredding sensitive and top-secret documents. They use the highest-security shredders available on the market. The National Security Agency (NSA) has come up with a list of shredders that they consider to be appropriate for the shredding of top-secret documents.

These shredders are referred to as security level six shredders and shred paper down to 1mm x 4-5mm. The particles are almost as small as dust.

Security Level 6 Shredded Particles

You can find a complete description on security level six shredders by looking at our paper shredder guide.

You can find a list of our high-security paper shredders by going here. Is your shredder on the list? Take a look and see.

Although security level six shredders are nice to have, they are not necessary for everyone. Most ID thieves won’t bother looking at shredded material. They may piece together strip-cut documents, but will almost always avoid cross-cut documents. Thieves usually don’t want to put forth the effort to piece documents back together, and will usually move on to another location for something un-shredded.

Ever thought about recycling your shredded paper?

August 11th, 2006

Industrial ShreddersHave you ever considered recycling your shredded paper? Although recycling shredded paper, as compared to non-shredded paper, is more complicated, it can be done. Many people also use their shredded paper as compost.

If you have properly destroyed sensitive information, you can take those shredded particles and recycle them. If you shred a lot of paper, or work for a large business, you may want to consider a shredder baler. Shredder balers shred dozens of sheets of paper at once, compact the particles and bale them. The bale looks much like a bale of hay you would see at a farm.

Baled paper is very dense. It is easy to transport with a cart or a hand truck. The baled paper can be stored in a warehouse or loaded on a truck where it can later be recycled. One bale of paper, usually about the size of a box, contains the equivalent of several bags worth of shredded paper.

Shredder baler combinations vary in size. Some can fit in an office environment, where others will fill a small warehouse. Shred services often use shredder balers in their trucks due to the limited space. Shredder balers vary in the amount of papers they can shred at any given time. Some high-volume shredder baler combinations can shred up to 400 sheets of paper at once.
