Paperback Notes

Despite having the latest version of the iPhone, do you still write down your grocery or to-do list on a sticky note? I certainly do; sometimes it’s simpler to write a list with a pen on paper, and then cross them off as completed, rather than type them in a notepad or calendar app. If you feel the same, then take a look at these Paperback adhesive notes. They fit perfectly on the back of the iPhone (removable adhesive covers most of their surface), and give a little more room to jot notes than a traditional sticky note. Use one at a time, or attach a small stack for additional lists later on.

Metallic Folios

Normally a folder won’t inspire anyone to get organized, but a gold or silver folio, well, that’s a different story. Shiny, special materials such as silver and gold catch our eyes and stand out in a stack of papers, thus providing you with a reason to add to your office supply collection. Plus, when considering the need to get organized, we need all the motivation we can get. Choose between silver or gold; there’s also matching metallic notebooks.

‘You’re amazing’ Card

If you don’t have someone that deserves this card, then you need to make some new friends. In fact, I’ll be your friend if you send me this card, and then I’ll tell all my amazing friends about you, then you’ll be broke because you’ll have to send out so many cards to tell them that they’re amazing. Won’t that be fun? Many more excellent cards to be found at the website of Sydney designers The Adventures of.
