Giant Removable Stickers Turn Any Flat Surface Into A Whiteboard

Inspiration can strike anywhere, and if you’re the type who needs to immediately write down their revelations, you might want to toss a few bucks towards Brandon Saw who’s Kickstartering a simple non-permanent adhesive wrap that turns any flat surface into an erasable whiteboard. If brainstorming is your thing, you’ll want to cover every inch of your office in this stuff.


Eraser Racers Fix Mistakes Faster Than You Can Make Them

Deep down we all know we’re learning important things for when we’re older, but that doesn’t make school any less boring. And since most teachers maintain a strict ‘no toys’ policy, kids have to find other clever ways to make it through a school day — such as innocent-looking pair of erasers that are actually pullback race cars.


Let A Tiny Trash Can Dispose Of Your Desk Clutter

Despite its diminutive stance, this miniature garbage can from Vipp is fully functional. Touch the tiny pedal where you’d usually stomp your foot and the lid temporarily pops open letting you dispose of tiny bits of trash, or store pens, pencils, paper clips, and other bits of stuff floating around your desk.


A Staple-Free Stapler That Doesn't Leave Ugly Holes Behind

The staple-free stapler isn’t a new idea; they have been around for decades, locking pages together without the need for tiny metal clips. But older designs use a method where an unsightly hole is punched through your documents, unlike Kokuyo’s clever new Harinacs stapler which simply crimps the corners to keep up to five pages securely attached to each other.


Shock Absorbers And Shields Stop The Lead In This Pencil From Breaking

It might seem like a case of over-engineering, but there’s no denying the thin pieces of lead used in mechanical pencils are prone to easily breaking. So instead of rolling our eyes at Zebra Co’s new DelGuard pencils, which actually feature shock absorbers and retractable shields to prevent lead from breaking, we should be championing their innovation.


Comic Book Sticky Notes Make Your Reminders Extra Exciting

Are you more likely to “call Ted in accounting” when the reminder is stuck to the frame of your monitor on a boring yellow Post-it Note? Or when the reminder appears to leap from the page on these wonderful comic book-style sticky notes? The answer is pretty clear.


A Carbon Fibre Stapler Is Definitely More Lustworthy Than A Swingline

In recent years carbon fibre has developed a nasty habit of turning up in places it really doesn’t belong. Its woven black finish might look neat on a mousepad, but the ultralight material should stick to places it really belongs like on high-performance race cars, in any product coming from the aerospace industry, and office supplies — definitely office supplies.


Paperclip Thumbtacks Let You Hang Photos Without Stabbing Them

The thumbtack and the paper clip haven’t seen much improvement since they were introduced to the office supply world — but that’s because they haven’t needed any. So it’s surprising how useful the two can be when merged into one tool called the Pinclip that lets you hand documents or photos without having to pierce them full of holes.


Door Handle Sticky Notes Ensure Nothing Gets Forgotten When You Leave

Is there anything more frustrating than getting ten minutes away from home only to realise you forgot something important and have to double-back? It only takes one forgotten laptop or smartphone to make these $US10 door hanger sticky notes completely worth it as a last-minute fail-safe reminder.


Elastic Bows Make Gift Wrapping Impossibly Easy

Few people dislike giving gifts, but most of us hate the expectation that they need to be properly wrapped first. It’s why gift bags must be a billion dollar industry at this point, and why these simple elastic ribbons could possibly be the greatest to happen to birthdays since cake and frosting.
