Commonly Overlooked Office Supplies (And Why You Need Them)

Your week-long presentation begins this morning and you have everything… except the copies of the slide pages. You finally print them, but where is the stapler? Does it have staples? Sometimes our best-laid plans backfire because of one tiny element we have forgotten in the grand scheme of things. Pollock Orora understands your dilemma and stocks a vast array of office supplies to keep your business running smoothly day after day and presentation after presentation. Here are some of the ones that are most commonly overlooked.

Paper Products

Not all paper products are created equal. Copy paper is essential and generally rated as an office product used daily. It’s the lesser used paper products that may surprise you with their absences. Be sure to keep a stock of the following products on hand:
• Cardstock, both colored and white
• Envelopes, both standard and business
• Sticky notes
• Folders and hanging folders
• Toilet tissue
• Labels

Sticky Stuff

Tape and tape dispensers adorn most desktops. However, this is not the only instrument used to adhere. You might also need the following products:
• Double-sided tape
• Adhesives, regular and glue sticks
• Super glue
• Packing tape
• Masking tape
• Painter’s tape

Shipping Supplies

Along with packing tape, your office is not complete without a selection of boxes to pack your inventory to ship it to your customers or clients. Other essentials include the following:
• Bubble wrap, large and small
• Plastic stretch wrap
• Pallets for large packages
• Postage meter or stamps
• Packing peanuts
• Scissors or box cutters

Forgotten Furnishings

Chairs and desks are a given. However, modern offices have a few twists. These are some items you’ll want to be sure to have in a modern office setting:
• Standing desk, or convertible standing desk
• Shredders, large or personal
• Filing cabinets (even if you are going paperless, you will be surprised how much paper you accrue that needs to be organized)
