Whether your office is small or large, there’s no question about it: you need high-quality supplies and devices to make your workday easier. This includes not only computers, pens, and phones, but binding machines, paper shredder, laminators, and more. Here are five devices you need and why you should get them for your office. Check them out.
- A good binding machine. Every office needs a good binding machine because creating professional-looking documents is highly important. A good binder will allow you to punch the pages of your documents (if necessary) and then put it all together with some kind of binding element. Some of the most commonly used elements include plastic combs, color coils, and twin-loop wire spines. You can also choose a thermal binder if you want to produce hardcover books.
- A high-security paper shredder. If you don’t already have at least one paper shredder in your office, you need to get one. Identity theft is devastating and increasingly common and there are now federal privacy laws regarding document destruction that need to be followed. (One example is HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.) Paper shredders can help you keep your information out of sight so you won’t run into trouble. You should select a high-security device that will turn your papers into miniscule pieces. If you store some of your data on electronic media (i.e. CD’s), look for a device that can handle those types of materials. They are out there.
- An excellent pouch laminator. You probably have some documents in your office that are handled frequently such as name tags, phone lists, and so on. Instead of constantly reprinting these items, you can use a pouch laminator to protect them from over-handling. These devices are easy to use and can be found in a variety of sizes. Some of them even have cold settings so you can laminate fragile items without damaging them. When you have a laminator, you’ll never need to worry about your important documents becoming ripped or stained. This will give you some peace of mind.
- A letter opener and a paper folder. Dealing with correspondence is a necessary part of office life, but it can be very time-consuming especially if you send and/or receive a large volume of mail. A letter opener can be a big help because you won’t have open all those envelopes yourself. Meanwhile, a paper folder can fold your documents for you so they’ll ready to be stuffed into envelopes. Both of these devices will make processing your mail much easier and faster.
All of these devices can make your workday a lot easier and allow you to accomplish various tasks quickly. You’ll be surprised at how much use you get out them and will wonder why you didn’t think about getting them sooner. Get a binding machine, paper shredder, laminator, letter opener, and/or a paper folder for your office today so you can increase your productivity, keep your information safe, and protect your important documents.
