Postino Desk Accessories

Looking for a set of desk accessories? The Postino collection by Alexis Georgacopoulos are inspired by the folds of a paper envelope, if you haven’t already guessed. The open edges give the aluminum material “a conceptual lightness”, though I’m sure if you decide to throw them at anyone they’ll be appropriately heavy.

Office Speak Rotating Stamp

Add this to your office stamp collection and see how many phrases you can use on paperwork without annoying your coworkers. Or buy as a gift for someone else to purposefully annoy their coworkers. It should be noted that it would have been enormously helpful to include the phrase ‘this should have been emailed’ just to truly thumb one’s nose at others and, of course, align oneself with the paperless movement.

Wörther Shorty Lead Holder

This was a favorite find of mine during a recent visit to Hand Eye Supply. I swear by my trusty Staedler lead holder for fine lines and controlled precision, but I can’t help but want to buy this Wörther Shorty for just the opposite reason; fast sketching and writing with big, fat strokes, compliments of its hefty 3mm soft lead. Available in plastic, natural aluminum, and maple. Prices range from $15 – $35 depending on material. Comes with two spare leads.

Personal Library Kit

$10 is well worth keeping track of all the comings and goings of your personal library… especially since certain friends need help remembering to return books that you thoughtfully lent them, and, well, sometimes it’s easy to forget who you lent them to. Usually this kit is priced at $15, so you’ll save just a little until it sells out.

Hello Card Set

I’ve been making a concerted effort to use paper and pen to send thank you notes, and as a result, I’ve had my eyes out for appropriate stationery. In Haus Press has a nice variety of simple cards for correspondence that fit my minimal-yet-cute requirements and I do think I’ll add a few designs to my purchase list. Available directly from In Haus Press.

Cast Iron Tape Dispenser

This won’t be going anywhere. It’s made from heavy cast iron, so you can be sure it’ll keep your tape in place no matter what. It’s just too bad that it also has a hefty price tag. Available with black or white text.

Geometry Notebooks

A little geometry will do you some good, especially when it has nothing to do with numbers and everything to do with decorating a simple notebook. Each blank book is hand-printed and you have your choice between Ruler (grey), Protractor (pink), or Set Square (yellow).

Quips+Queries Cards

I, for one, believe that a quick handwritten note will never go out of style, no matter how advanced technology gets. For those of you that agree, might I direct your attention towards these cards, of which there are 6 different designs all available in a set of 50. My favorites are the 8 ball and Luck designs (shown), but there’s also a pink set (with 5 different French sayings) and a blank set with a silver or gold edge. There’s also an option of 100 cards in an acrylic box if you’d prefer to stock up: Quips+Queries Set, $28.00

Hankie Pocketbook

Can you think of a better name for this than ‘Hankie Pocketbook’? How about Pocket Square Notebook? Or anything else slightly less fru-fru than ‘hankie’. Of course, the dapper gentleman/women has permission to call it by anything he or she wishes, just be aware that there are alternatives that don’t make you sound like you’re a hundred years old (not that there is anything at all wrong with sounding like a hundred year old person). This notebook has 60‭ ‬ruled pages of ‬acid-free paper and is available in 3‭ ‬colors‭: ‬Red‭, ‬Cream‭ ‬&‭ ‬Charcoal.

Sticky Note Matchbooks

For the sticky-note addicted, this is a no brainer. You know how sticky notes get quite gross when in a pocket or bag? They pick up all manner of lint and random bits of something that you’d rather not see when checking a grocery or to-do list. This smart idea of a Sticky Note Matchbook keeps notes pristine and protected, plus the size is perfectly pocket sized (for us persnickety people). Pack of 4 for $2.
