Back to school time means shopping for supplies and this is typically when I restock my home office supplies as well. With a kiddo going into middle school and one taking college courses, there are so many things on the list and just the thought of shopping can be overwhelming. Luckily, I found Plus Corporation of America and they were generous enough to send me several of their items to review.
Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan with North American operations based out of Beaverton, Oregon, PLUS-America has manufactured stationery products for over 50 years. The company holds several innovative patents and it invented the Guard Your ID Stamps. It is also the largest manufacturer of correction tape. Along with these two types of products, PLUS also manufactures craft items, paper clinches, scissors, notebooks, and much more.
The decoration tape has a pen-style applicator making it simple to apply. Just push the button to extend the tip and pull it across the paper. When finished, retract the tip to store it. It is an easy and fun way to adorn cards, gift tags, and so much more. I received the Decoration Tape – Sports and my son immediately began using it. He used it to decorate the inside of the binder he will carry to each class. It was so simple to use and the tape featured bright colors. You can find over 20 patterns including cupcakes, flowers. and animals.
The Decoration Roller is by far my favorite out of the products. It is an applicator with a self-inking stamp that you can apply to cards, notebooks, scrapbooks, and so much more. It is easy to use and there are over 20 patterns to choose from. You just need one applicator since you can switch out the stamp cartridge as often as you want. I received the Cupcakes design and it was so fun to use!
Guard Your ID
Guard Your ID is a line of products designed to protect your confidential information. The line includes tapes and stamps that use patterns to cover up letters and numbers when applied. They come in handy to use rollers or applicators for ease of use. The Guard Your ID products also come in various sizes to meet your needs. They are a convenient alternative to paper shredders. I love, love, love the Guard Your ID Roller I received. This style has a self-inking stamp cartridge and it is effortless to use. My favorite part? It takes up so much less space than the shredder. It really does cover up text and writing so you don’t have to worry about your sensitive information falling into the wrong hands.
I have to admit, I had never used Glue Tape before receiving these items and I have definitely been missing out. I am the person that ends up with glue up to the elbows even on small projects. Glue tapes are easy to roll on to the surface and there is literally no mess! I also received a Glue Tape Dot Pod, which works in the same way as the regular glue tape. It places the glue in small dots however, instead of a line. PLUS carries several styles of glue tape, most of which are refillable.
Correction Tape is a lifesaver if you are like me and get to going so fast that you make silly errors. It helps you achieve a professional look on all of your documents. The tape is easy to apply and it requires no dry time. I received the Correction Tape FX and after trying it out, my son called dibs on it. He claims he needs it to cover up mistakes in school.
I despise staplers. While they are handy, I always seem to find random staples on the floor regardless of how careful I am. With a baby at home, this worries me as she is always squirming all over the floor or putting things in her mouth. A Paper Clinch eliminates this problem and I so wish I would have known about this wonderful little accessory sooner. This little device fastens papers with an inter-folding process. It is easy to use and PLUS has several styles available.
PLUS has a wide selection of scissors in an array of sizes and with different features. They have curved blade scissors, junior scissors, extra long scissors, and much more. I received the 8″ Curved Blade Scissors in Blue. They cut at a 30 degree angle for effortless cutting. The blades are made from stainless steel and they have a double-layered grip.
PLUS Corporation carries Extra Strong Magnets that are perfect for the office. I received a Square magnet in silver that can hold up to 150 sheets of paper at one time. It also has a hole on the side to hang a pen from a string. The magnets come in all different colors.
The company also manufactures notebooks that are quality made. They offer a variety including slim styles, with rings, or with binding. The notebook have subtle grid lines making them suitable for more than just taking notes. You can use them for sketching, graphing and more. I received the Notebook Slim Ring – Pink. It has a durable plastic cover, 2 pockets on the back, and an elastic closure to keep everything securely inside. I also received the Notebook Wide – Black, which has a larger size making it just right for writing more information.
I am impressed with all the items I received from PLUS Corporation of America and each one will be used whether at school or in the office. Everything is durably made and best of all, affordable! You can shop for home or office supplies while staying on budget!
