AgeOptions
Posted on January 16, 2017  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

At Garvey’s Office Products, we’re always excited for the New Year. While part of that excitement comes from new gadgets in the office supply world (We know, we’re nerds), the other part comes from being able to announce a new recipient for our Recycle for a Reason program. For 2017, we are proud to introduce you to AgeOptions.

 

For those of you who don’t know, AgeOptions is a local Chicagoland nonprofit. Its mission is to improve services that help people thrive as they age, believing that quality of life is essential to everyone. Remarkably, this organization serves 130 communities in suburban Cook County, and it’s our personal goal to see that this quarter’s Recycle for a Reason donation reaches every one of those communities!

 

There are two ways you can make a difference:

 

Current customers (because Nice Guy customers get special treatment)
If you are a current customer, the process is downright easy. First, collect any used toners, flattened cardboard and old electronics you have lying around the office. Next, call your Nice Guys rep (800-621-1503). A Nice Guys driver will pick your donation up free of charge on his next delivery to you.

 

Non-Customers
If you are not a current customer, we ask that you drop off your donation at 7500 N. Caldwell Ave., Niles, IL 60714. Collections will be accepted during open office hours: Monday-Friday, 9-5 PM. Please make sure you check that your donated items are on our list of acceptable things before dropping them off!

 

Collections for AgeOptions end March 31, 2017. Let’s make this quarter the best yet!

Sharpie Highlighters
Posted on January 9, 2017  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

We’ve all been there. Highlighting something in a presentation only to have the yellow color smear the words into something unrecognizable. Turning the page and discovering that you not only highlighted one line, but three pages worth!

 

The experience is annoying to say the least. Frustrating if you’re on a deadline and need to present. Enter Sharpie’s Gel Highlighters. We were excited to test out this five pack with its claim that it doesn’t bleed or smear. And it didn’t disappoint. The gel glided across the page and smearing was minimal.

 

As far as our Nice Guy rating goes, it was the best in the category that we’ve seen yet! We’d definitely recommend it as an office supply staple if you love to highlight.

Organize Filing
Posted on January 3, 2017  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

It’s a new year! For many administrative professionals, this can mean wrangling the file cabinets into a system that is usable and clearing out the clutter from last year. If you’re at a lost of where to start, try these three simple tricks to organize like a pro.

 

Alphabetize your drawers.
It’s the one filing system that everyone is trained on in grade school and can understand. Every file cabinet should be alphabetized by department; every file within that cabinet should be alphabetized by subject.

 

Invest in folder tabs that work.
Anyone who works in an office knows what we are talking about. Avoid buying folders with tabs you have to latch on with those little paper inserts. Instead, invest in folders with the tab already build in. You’ll thank us.

 

Label folders with…. labels.
Although you may be able to distinguish your handwriting, the likelihood that someone else may not is high. Avoid the confusion all together by investing in a labeler. Brother labellers are super easy to operate and read.
