Geometry Post Its

Yeah I know, a rectangular stickie note makes the most sense in the squared-off world we live in. But whatever, these cool geometric shaped ones are just fun. Even if you don’t actually do work with them, they’d be great to have around for gifts and other crafty projects. Someone buy me a pack of hexagons.

About Blank Notebook

This notebook might not look like much, but that’s precisely the point. No logos, subltle barely-there white lines on the pages, and it opens fully flat. So while all these things are small details, added up together it makes for a notebook that doesn’t get it the way of your drawing/writing.

Alphabetical Paper Clips

Rather than using folders to organize, you can use these paperclips to file documents alphabetically. Plus, you’ll have the fun of stringing them together to spell out words (during your coffee breaks, of course).
