Secret Message Envelopes

Shh…it’s a secret.  At a first glance these Air Mail envelopes from Sweetie Pie Press are nothing out of the ordinary, but when held up to a light source they reveal a secret message, and in this case, an uplifting and comforting one.

DBA Pen

Maybe you’ve seen this already, maybe you haven’t. Either way, it’s still the only 98% biodegradable pen in the world. The body is composed of bio-plastic, the ink reservoir from biodegradable fiber, and the ink itself is ACMI certified non-toxic. Not enough for you? Well, it’s also produced at a wind-powered facility in the US, so that should be enough to impress.

Designed to decompose in a compost facility within 180 days.

Umamy Concrete Desk Accessories

I just stumbled across this neat set of cast concrete desk accessories from Israeli design group Umamy. Simply titled “Concrete Office Helpers”, this line of organizers are sure to add a bit of industrial-chic styling (and quite a bit of heft) to your desk.  The entire set currently costs $300, but individual pieces can also be purchased.

ID Blocker

Check out this handy stamp. It contains lots of tiny symbols that block out your address or other sensitive details in your mail. Might save you some time and/or trips to the paper shredder. Or, if you’re extremely paranoid, it’ll just place an additional security measure against those that are planning on piecing together your shredded mail.

Messograf

Whoa, check out the new Theo site, the little brother/alter ego of Thorsten van Elten. It’s chock full of interesting objects for sale and the website is a sight for sore eyes, let me tell you. In a world of online shops with blaring graphics and flashing lights, it’s refreshing to see the fuss eliminated. This Messograf Pen caught my eye; it’s a caliper rule, tire tread gauge, ruler and pen all in one.
