Clean Desk Person or Messy Desk Person - Which Are You?

So, as you sit in your office and look around, are you a clean desk person or a messy desk person. What does one or the other say about you?

Researchers have, in the past, studied how certain personality traits affect health choices in people. Not surprisingly, they found that people who tend to be more organized and predictable, typically eat better and live longer than people who were less orderly. They also tend to have very clean offices and desks.

However, what has been less clear is whether or not clean work environments can create good habits, even in those who aren't necessarily as organized as others around them. In a study done by Dr. Kathleen Vohs and the University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management, researchers decided to find this out.

What Does MIL Weight Mean For Laminating Pouches?

The mil weight of a hot laminating pouch describes the thickness of the pouch, which determines how heavy, or stiff, the final laminated item will be. The higher the mil weight, the "stiffer" your final laminating project will end up being.

Thermal Laminating Machine and Hot Laminating Pouch
When an item is measured in "mils," your standard for conversion is one mil equals one thousandth of an inch. Standard mil weights purchased by most customers for their projects are the 3 mil and 5 mil weights.

When mil weight is being described for laminating film, it is important to know that most manufacturers are talking about the total mil weight of the hot laminating sheet. For instance, if a pouch is described as having a 10 mil weight, that means that each side of the pouch (flap) is 5 mils, for a total weight of 10 mils.

Keep in mind that a higher mil weight does not necessarily mean it is a "better" thermal laminating pouch for you. You need to consider the type of project you will be laminating and determine whether you need it to be of a standard thickness, or if you need a more rigid finished product.

Paper Shredder Maintenance: How To Care For Your Machine

Paper Shredder Machine
Because paper shredders are such simple to use machine, many people tend to overlook the fact that you can prolong the life of your shredding machine with proper maintenance. So, we have put together a few tips on the proper maintenance of an easy to maintain machine.

Oil your paper shredder on a regular basis.

All paper shredders should be properly lubricated on a regular basis with shredder oil. This helps to keep the cutting heads moving and operating to their maximum efficiency. Proper oiling of your paper shredder will lengthen the life of the machine.

Over time the dust from paper builds up inside of the cutting blades of your machine. Eventually this dust can become packed together, forming a tight "brick" that can be difficult to remove and cause jams. It can dull the blades and burn out the motor.

Paper Shredder OilOiling your machine regularly softens the sediment in the blades and allows the cutting head to move more freely, pushing it our further.  We suggest oiling, at the very least, once a week, but more often is better. Extremely heavily used shredders could even be oiled once a day. Cross cut shredders tend to require more oiling than a strip cut shredder might, due to the finer particles of dust they create.

Paper shredding oil comes in a squeeze bottle and is very easy to use. Oiling your paper shredding machine is very quick and can be accomplished in a couple of ways.

The paperless oiling method involves holding the bottle of oil over the shredder paper cutting blades, from the top of the machine, squeezing the bottle as you pass it along the length of the opening. It only takes a few seconds. Make sure your machine is turned off when doing this. After the oil has been applied, turn the machine on, in the reverse function, for about 15 seconds to allow the oil to transfer to the blades uniformly. Then simply shred a few sheets of paper in the machine, which will help remove any excess oil.

Businesses Need To Stay Aware of Domain Name Scams

We recently received an email from a Chinese domain registry company, warning us that someone was applying to register a set of domain names based on our company name. It is not the first time we have received such an email, so I figured a warning to other businesses may be a good thing.

According to these messages, the company contacting you is trying to "warn" you that someone else is trying to claim your trademark, brand or domain. They give you a limited amount of time to reply, and warn that if you don't you are at risk of losing your rights to your name. It sounds so very official and scary, right?

Buying a Letter Paper Folder / Paper Folding Machine

Letter Paper Folding Machine
Everyone know it's a pain to fold brochures, letterhead, sales letters, marketing material, invoices, statements, newsletters and church bulletins by hand. It's time consuming and tedious, not to mention the painful paper cuts you can endure while doing it.

Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to making folding paper easier? The use of an automatic paper folder can increase the number of sheets you can fold dramatically, without all the back breaking labor involved in manual paper folding.

An automatic paper folder will:
  • Increase the number of sheets you can fold per hour
  • Save you a considerable amount of time
  • Reduce physical stress and mental fatigue
  • Increase the types of folds you can create for your projects
  • Save you money by increasing output and decreasing manpower
Unless you are mailing out small quantities, or have a need for more automated folding only occasionally, an automatic paper folder can definitely boost your productivity and be a welcome addition to any office or organization.

So if you have determined that you want to buy a paper folder, before considering the purchase of one there are several things you should keep in mind:
