Easy Read Ruler
Posted on August 25, 2014  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

Just in time for Back To School, Victor® Technologies has introduced the Easy Read Ruler™! If you have ever had to measure something and it didn't fall on the ½" or 1" mark, you know the drill….count the lines and figure out down to the 1/16 of an inch what the exact length should be. This not only takes time but leaves plenty of room for error! Did I count the line before or not? Is that line 1/16" or 1/8?

 

With the Victor® Easy Read Ruler™ there is absolutely no guesswork! You get the right answer every time! Who doesn't want that? These rulers also have metric measurements on the front of the ruler as well so if you need to convert your measurement to meters – you can do so just as easily!

 

In addition to being the smartest ruler in the market right now, it is made of stainless steel so it doesn't crack or break when dropped. With its cork backing, it won't slip when you are using it on paper either!

 

Be the envy of everyone at your office with the New Victor® Easy Read Rulers™! Available in 12" or 18" in easy to read blue, be sure to pick up one of these rulers today!

In order to spread the word and awareness through the office products industry, Garvey's challenged the Glass Brothers from Midwest Resource Group and Simon De Groot from Independent Dealer Magazine and Peter Frost from Proficiency Post.

Food Drive Contest
Posted on July 9, 2014  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

Did you know that more than 797,000 people in Cook County alone are unsure of when they will receive their next meal? This number is quite an eye opener to the huge problem of hunger in the Chicagoland area. The Greater Chicago Food Depository works hard every day to fight hunger in Chicago. They provide 81% of the food to local food pantries and 65% of the food to local homeless shelters and 59% of the food to local soup kitchens. All in all – that is a LOT of food to provide! Last year alone, the Greater Chicago Food Depository distributed 66 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy and meat products.

 

In order to provide this massive amount of food, GCFD needs food donations. While they work with 350 national and local food companies, they are also dependent on food drives hosted by local businesses and community organizations. Garvey's Office Products has partnered with GCFD and has become a Food Drive Transportation Partner. What this means is we can accept food donations at our location at 7500 N. Caldwell in Niles, IL or we will use our trucks to pick up your companies food donations. We then transport these food donations to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

 

Hunger is a year round issue. In order to raise awareness of this, we are hosting a special contest in July for all customers who would like to host their own food drive at their office. If you collect non-perishable food in the month of July, call Garvey's at 800-621-1503 or email us at sales@getgarveys.com and we will send a truck to pick up your donation. We will also enter your company into a drawing for a $300 pizza party to be delivered in August.

IWhen people talk of a revolution – it usually does not involve office products; until now, with the release of the AutoMax Shredders from Fellowes.  The new AutoMax shredders are revolutionary in that they will make you want to volunteer to be the person in charge of shredding!

 

The AutoMax Shredders are not your run of the mill, loud, difficult to operate shredders that jam on every tenth sheet.  The AutoMax Shredders are revolutionary because they literally allow you to load them up and walk away.  With their Surefeed technology, you can trust that the documents you loaded into the shredding drawer will be only bits of paper when you return.  With the SmartLock technology you also know that each shredding cycle is 100 percent confidential and cannot be opened.

 

The AutoMax Shredders will make quick work of shredding documents, cd's, paperclips and credit cards.  The 300C features a 300 sheet feed drawer and a 16 gallon bin capacity, while the 500C features a 500 sheet feed drawer 20 gallon capacity.

 

If you have the job of shredding at your office today, order one of these models and save yourself hours of time!

At-A-Glance Wounded Warriors 2014 Calendars
Posted on December 17, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

If you have not heard of the Wounded Warrior Project, go look it up. Don't worry, I'll wait… You back? Inspiring, right? I spent a good half hour reading some of the stories on their website before writing this. The Wounded Warrior Project, or WWP, provides services to physically and mentally wounded soldiers who have served after 9/11 in missions like Operation Enduring Freedom in the Middle East. WWP helps the veterans get support through counseling, education, and rehabilitation. It connects the soldiers to others that have had similar traumatic experiences, so they can talk about their burdens with someone that truly empathizes. Finally, the WWP helps raise public awareness about the great need for care that veterans are in. Like any other charity, they need money to do this, and companies have partnered with WWP to create products that benefit the charity.

 

One of these very gracious companies is ACCO Brands®, which produces At-A-Glance® calendars and planners. ACCO Brands® has produced a line of At-A-Glance® products that benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Each calendar or planner has a selection of stories highlighting the bravery and determination of some of the WWP's warriors. These stories are truly motivating and have definitely helped me before in getting through rough days. If you've had enough of those motivational posters with a sailboat, a mountain, or something, and big letters saying DETERMINATION or PURPOSE, then this is the calendar for you. These don't contain abstract ideas and overused clichés, they introduce you to real people with real stories. Plus, the purchase of these products sends funds towards WWP. ACCO Brands® has actually promised to make a minimum donation of $125,000 by December of next year. With your help, they could far exceed that, and you get a calendar! What a deal.

 

Make your schedule more motivating and help a good cause with calendars and planners from At-A-Glance® and the Wounded Warrior Project. Everyone can learn something from what these people have been through and the progress they have made. While most of us cannot call ourselves heroes in that respect, we can all be heroes in the way we live our lives, and helping out a Wounded Warrior is a way to do that.

NICE GUYS SWEATSHIRT
Posted on October 29, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

Everyone has a favorite t-shirt or hoodie, and everyone has a favorite office supplier – Garvey's of course! Why not combine the two into the best thing since the invention of blue jeans? The nice guys : ) clothing line! We've been producing the nice guys : ) shirts, hoodies, and sweatshirts for a few years now, and they've been a massive hit, so why not join the fun?

 

First of all, the whole line is extremely comfortable – t-shirts are 100% cotton and sweatshirts are 50/50 cotton/polyester. I wear my nice guys : ) crew-neck sweatshirt all the time because it's probably one of the comfiest pieces of clothing I own, and I'm not just saying that. They're pretty snappy looking as well, if I do say so myself! They carry the nice guys : ) logo on the front and the Garvey's slogan on the back in a friendly font – nothing flashy, we value simplicity here at Garvey's. Available in basically any color imaginable and multiple styles including V-neck t-shirts, they will fit to your personal style. Nice guys : ) clothes are pretty tough, too! They're made so you can wear them as much as possible.

 

Plus, to thank you for wearing your nice guys : ) clothes, we're constantly running promotions for people that spread the nice guys : ) word. When they were first released, if you were seen wearing your nice guys : ) shirt by a member of the Garvey's team, you would receive a gift card on the spot. Recently, we held a contest asking people to take a picture of themselves wearing their nice guys : ) shirts in front of an interesting landmark or destination. The winner received a discount on their next order! We'll keep issuing challenges and promotions to continue to thank you for being a member of "Nice Guys Nation" as we like to call it.

 

To get your nice guys : ) clothing, type Nice Guys in the search box on the website or email Barb at barb@getgarveys.com to ask about how you can get the nice guys : ) piece that fits you!

 

Also, if you place an order with us over $1,000, we'll send you a free nice guys : ) hoodie or t-shirt! That's right, FREE! Get your nice guys : ) clothing today to proudly display your citizenship in the Nice Guys Nation!

Fellowes Climate Control Footrest
Posted on October 22, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

Offices are teams, there's no doubt about that. Even teams, however, have their disagreements. I find that the thermostat is a common issue. Some like it a little warmer than others, yet there must be a compromise (personally, I find that compromise to be awfully cold). Why can't each desk have their own HVAC system? While that would be nice, it's just not an option.

 

One way you can get close to creating your own climate in your office is through the Fellowes® Climate Control Footrest. Just select a setting, place it under your desk, and feel the comfort set in. With three temperature settings, it solves any problem. Cheap boss won't turn on the heat during winter? Hello, high heat. Sun blaring through your window roasting you like a marshmallow over a campfire? The cool fan has you covered. Toes getting a little chilly? Low heat will comfort them. It's made of durable plastic, so it won't become scalding after heating or freezing after cooling for a while. Want even more relaxation? You've got it, because the footrest also sports massage bumps to relax your tense feet. Adjustable height and angle help you find the optimal position. This is sounding more and more like a spa treatment than a footrest, but, nevertheless, it is still a footrest. It's probably a lot less than a spa treatment, too.

 

Don't feel guilty about plugging it in, either. It barely uses any electricity to work, and has an auto-off feature that saves you or your company money on electric bills. You could either still go for a quote on a heating system for your cubicle from your local contractor, or just head over to getgarveys.com and get yourself a Fellowes® Climate Control Footrest. Here's a hint: the second choice probably won't give your wallet the chills as much as the first.

At-A-Glance WallMates Planners
Posted on September 26, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

I had a Dilbert comic-a-day tear away calendar on my desk last year. I got some good laughs out of it, but I couldn't help but notice how much paper it took to make one of these, then I noticed my big paper monthly calendar, also lots of paper. Finally, I thought about how I had to buy a new one every year, oh my gosh I'm singlehandedly destroying the rainforest! Wait. Calm down. Deep breaths. I don't need to get caught up in all of that guilt. I've recycled the paper that I've used, but isn't there a better way for me to keep a calendar?

 

Yes there is, past self! It's an At-A-Glance® WallMates Planner. Rather than constantly tearing pieces of paper off the wall or having to buy a new calendar every year. These whiteboard planners make the perfect organization buddy, with minimal hassle, cost, and waste. They come in the blank outline of a calendar, and you just have to fill in the dates with your favorite color dry erase marker. They're available in different styles, from weekly to year length; so, whenever that time period is up, just erase and write in the new dates – no ripping or re-hanging required! You can even get a blank style to have a big reminder board/scoreboard/doodling surface! The dry erase surface cleans easily and is smooth to write on; plus it's magnetic. Is paper magnetic? Nope. The adhesive hangers are super strong, leave no residue on the wall, and won't damage the paint. Overall, I see this as the most economical and clean solution to scheduling your wall will ever see.

 

You don't have to worry about buying these at any particular time either, since you make the dates! While it may not have a new joke every day, you can draw your own!

Dymo-Perfect-10
Posted on September 11, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

Your office or department within a larger office probably has its own printer shared by the employees near it. It's a simple, effective system. When you need to print something, just send it to the printer, walk a few steps, and pick up your paper. Now imagine this printer had to be plugged into your computer to work at all, and it was still shared among 15 or 20 people. You would probably need a whole mess of cables to reach everyone's computer, or you could just carry the printer to your desk whenever you need it. Alternatively, you could just expect everyone to drop several hundred bucks to get their own printer. No? Bad ideas? Of course they're bad ideas, that's why we made wireless printers. If you're an office that does a lot of file labelling, barcode printing, and other tasks involving labels, you wouldn't want to run into these same problems with a label maker, right? Well, then why hasn't someone seen the problem and made a wireless label printer yet?

 

Breaking News! Someone has! As much as they would love everyone to buy their own label maker, the good folks at Dymo® know that sharing is caring, and have created the Dymo® LabelManager® Wireless Plug ‘n Play. Just connect your computer to the device, pull up the streamlined software, and print! It has wireless connectivity built in, and is able to connect to any other computers using the same wireless network that you are. This isn’t a one trick pony printer either, as it can print dozens of different types of labels, from library codes to QR codes to UPC labels all at a crisp, clear 300 dpi resolution, so you never have to worry about the label not scanning right or being hard to read. It’s no slowpoke, either, because it can print 15mm per second, getting your labels out lickety-split, and it’ll even automatically cut the labels for you as they come out

 

With all of this printing prowess, you might think it's a large, complex machine, when in reality, it's the exact opposite. It weighs about 1 pound, and takes up less space than a toaster. You could even sit it on top of your printer – it could act as your printer's trusty sidekick. It only has 1 cable, a USB to connect to your computer or through an included wall adapter to charge, so it is far from complex.

 

Embrace the magic of sharing with the LabelManager® Wireless from Dymo® today, and check it out on our catalog at a price you'll definitely share with your friends!

 

For a limited time you can get the Dymo® LabelManager® absolutely free when you buy 10 boxes of qualifying labels.  Hurry – Offer expires October 31, 2013.

3M MP410 Projector
Posted on August 22, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

In today's "mobile" culture, we are always looking for more portable solutions to our already advanced technology. Cell phones evolved from large plastic bricks to little computers you can fit into your pocket; computers, which used to take up an entire room are now super-slim and light. Everything is getting smaller (except gas prices), which makes other common technology seem huge and cumbersome. I think of the projector. They take up valuable table space and, no matter how much you fiddle with it, the image somehow always ends up upside-down. Also, wiring them into the ceiling makes them hard to reach and completely un-portable. What if you need to present something in a room without a projector? You’re certainly not going to ask all of the prospective clients to gather round your laptop like schoolchildren during story time, and you couldn’t imagine the inconvenience of taking down the office projector and bringing it with you.

 

That introduction probably stressed you out just reading it (sorry), so let me present the solution before you get too worried about your imaginary presentation. Behold, the 3M MP410 Mobile Projector! This little wonder in a box solves all of those inconveniences that plague the travelling office worker. Weighing in at 13 ounces, it's about as cumbersome as that sandwich you packed for lunch, and it's smaller, too. The projector is a little bit bigger than your palm. Go ahead, look at your palm and think about that for a second– it’s tiny.

 

Just because 3M cut down on weight with the MP410, doesn't mean they compromised on power, though. It uses LEDs to illuminate the image, rather than conventional bulbs, so you don't have to replace anything, which can save you lots of dough. You would need to give a 20,000 hour long presentation to burn this projector out, and I don't think anyone has done that yet, so you should be fine. With this technology, it can match any regular projector, being able to project 17"-100" images in high-quality.

 

Finally, the MP410 way easier to use than a big, complicated projector. It has very straightforward controls, not cluttered with buttons and jacks you'll never use. It has a gigabyte of internal storage, so it can save your presentation itself and pull it up immediately, saving you time. With an available wireless input, it can even connect to your computer without having to use any wires, helping you upload your presentation from almost anywhere.

 

The 3M MP410 is the travelling salesman's trusty sidekick that is always there to get you mobile. Add it to your portable arsenal today!

HON® Huddle™ Multipurpose Tables
Posted on August 15, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

There's less than half a minute left in the game. You're down by 3. Do you send your kicking squad in to secure overtime? Do you take a risk and go for the full touchdown? One thing you know is that you can’t make that call by yourself. You have to see how the team’s feeling. You call a timeout and go into a huddle. How does the story end? I don’t know, it’s your football game.

 

Communication is vital in any team setting, and the huddle is one of the most effective forms. The members are literally putting their heads together in a real environment of teamwork. Each individual member becomes part of one large entity. While just about all businesses do not conduct their meetings in huddles, but around tables, we still want our meeting places to have the same versatility and ease of access as a team huddle. Our partners at HON® have perfectly encapsulated these abilities in their line of adaptable tables – aptly called the Huddle™ series.

 

Huddle™ tables are the perfect set of furniture for a room that serves many functions because they are light and easy to move. In the morning you could form a big square to have an open discussion with the rest of your department, then quickly change the room into a classroom-like setting for new employee training the next hour, and then store all the tables easily in the corner at the end of the day. With available nesting technology, the tables can fit together into a fraction of the space they took up when flat (this perfectly pairs with many of HON’s series of nesting chairs). Also, the nesting hinges have dampers and locks that make them easy to fold and secure in both folded and unfolded states.

 

In order to find your ideal setting and size of collaboration, Huddle™ tables offer many sizes and shapes. Most are proportioned to link together seamlessly; for example the flat side of the semicircular tables are the same length of two ends of the rectangular tables, so putting them together makes a wonderfully shaped large table. With “ganging hardware” a.k.a. those swingy hook-like things under the tables, you won’t have to worry about annoying gaps forming when the tables are put together – they’ll stay together.

 

The Huddle™ tables are no slackers in the style department either, as they are available in endless combinations of color, finish, and edge trims. They’ve got some hidden secrets, too. There are available power hookups nicely integrated in the underside of the tables, and convenient grommets that contain either standard AC outlets or USB and SD slots. The tables also hook together electrically, so you don’t have to plug in every single table. Just one.

 

Overall, the Huddle™ tables will make your office “huddles” much more productive and easier to facilitate. They’re team players that will work for you in your busiest times. Go to the Hon Spot link on our site and add the Huddle™ table series to your team today!

Post-It Notes Full Adhesive Notes
Posted on July 16, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

Do you work for a government position that deals with security-sensitive documents? Are you employed by a medical office that keeps confidential records? Are you a member of a law firm that works on contracts and other very important information? Are you a secret agent that cannot reveal any personal information? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I bet you have done a bit of redacting with a black marker or some white correction tape. There are some issues with these methods, though. First of all, using black marker is tedious and messy. If you use too little, the text is still visible, but if you use too much, it can bleed and ruin the paper. Plus, you can't write over it. While white correction tape is faster, easier, and able to be written on, it can rub off pretty easily, and, in the correct light, you can see right through it.

 

Stop living in fear of whether or not your redacted documents are really secure, because there's a new security guard on duty – Bic Redaction Tape! This new tape combines the best features of both black marker and white tape, while virtually eliminating the flaws of both! It's composed of two layers: the bottom has a black security hatch pattern so that the text under it cannot be read even when held up in the light. The top layer is a white covering layer so that it can be written on without waiting for anything to dry. This double-layer system also makes the tape much tougher than normal correction tape. You can write on it effortlessly without worrying about ripping the tape, and it won't rub or scratch off easily either. Bic Redaction Tape is applied the same way as normal correction tape, and comes in an equally compact package. It keeps your security-sensitive documents neat, while also keeping them safe.

 

Don't suffer through another round of redacting without this new and improved method! Get the best security for your documents and add Bic Redaction Tape to your cart today!

Post-It Notes Full Adhesive Notes

You walk over to your colleague's cubicle to ask him if he got your note about the important order he had to place, only to find out that the sticky note had fallen off of his wall and flew under his desk, never to be seen again. You walk into your house, feeling like you're forgetting something, when you realize that you forgot to pick up the milk because the note you stuck to the dashboard had flown out the window this morning. The second incident has actually happened to me – no joke. You wonder sometimes, "Why do sticky notes only have a tiny strip of adhesive at the top? I want more!" These were the issues and questions that plagued the minds of the average person until the Post-It® Notes Full Adhesive Notes came along.

 

This revolutionary product turns the original Post-It® Notes on its head, filling the entire back of the note with Post-It® Notes' famous high-stick, low mess adhesive, leaving a small strip without the compound for easy removal. The pad can be stuck basically anywhere for easy access, like the lid of your laptop, and, for that matter, for difficult access – you can put the pad on the ceiling if you're trying to improve your vertical jump or on the top of your shoe to work on your stretching. The notes cling to any surface like your legs stick to the vinyl seats in an old car. This makes silly situations like I mentioned before almost impossible. The same size as normal notes, I like them better than the original. And I really like Post-It® Notes, so that's saying something. Available in loads of colors, you can even color-code your reminders. I'm not that organized, but these notes definitely make everything a great deal easier.

Samsill Speedy Spine Binders
Posted on July 3, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

You have a big presentation coming up and you want to make binders stocked with your best work. The insides look beautiful, if you do say so yourself, but you want to slip papers into the spines to make the outsides of the binders look just as nice. There is one problem with this task – it's virtually impossible. If anyone has tried to slip a spine insert into the spine of a binder, you will know what I'm talking about. All you end up with is several crumpled slips of paper, a headache, and a binder that still doesn't have a title on the spine.

 

The good folks over at Samsill® felt our pain, and did something about it. They created the Speedy Spine™ Binder. It uses special spine channel construction and probably a little magic to allow the paper to literally fall into the spine. Watch the video, I'm not kidding. It has been proven by extensive research (we had a race) that placing spine inserts into the Speedy Spine™ Binder is five times faster than normal binders. Just stand the binder up, slip in the insert, and let gravity do the rest. I may be more excitable than the average Joe, but I was genuinely amazed the first time I saw the video. Samsill® has revolutionized creating custom binders – so much so that I'm surprised this hasn't been given a Nobel Prize in convenience yet. What? That doesn't exist?

 

Well then I am bestowing the unofficial Nobel Prize in convenience on the Samsill® Speedy Spine™ Binder. Why pass up the opportunity to own a binder that has such a prestigious award? Go ahead and add the Samsill® Speedy Spine™ Binder to your shopping cart – available in black or white, and round-ring or D-ring.

Fellowes Mystic Storage Box
Posted on June 25, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

You come to the office today to find that forty file drawers of records need to be transported offsite. You have to assemble 60 boxes!! There goes your morning!! You think, "If only someone could come up with an easier solution!"

 

Fear not overworked office staffer, there is a new box on the market, and it's just about as amazing as Transformer toys when they first hit the market... Okay, maybe not that cool. From the geniuses at Bankers Box® comes the mighty Mystic Box! (Cue trumpets and fireworks). The Mystic Box folds from flat to finished in the blink of an eye! With a 750 pound stacking strength, Mystic is the strongest box on the market. They are also made of 85% post-consumer recycled material!.

 

Transformer reference aside, this is an amazing product. The Mystic Box completely revolutionizes the mundane task of making boxes, turning hours into minutes. It's as easy as 1, 2. It's so easy; there isn't even a step 3. Just take the flat box and pop it open into a square, then push the base down. I probably could have made 2 boxes in the time it took me to type this sentence, and I'm a decently fast typist. Think of how much time can be saved with this because the Mystic Box is quick, does not mean it lacks in strength. As mentioned earlier, it has a 750 pound stacking capacity without breaking or bending. This helps avoid the awful inconvenience of having to re-box items because the current box has given up. Finally, the lids have fold-in handles that create a secure hold between box and lid. In every area, the Mystic Box fights crimes of inconvenience to make your office a better place to be.

 

The Mystic Box could be the savior of your storage woes, all at an oh-so-nice price from the nice guys in office supplies!

Organization is key in an office setting. Without it, it would be chaotic, messy, and you would never be able to find that paper you set on your desk last week. But even organization has its limits; we may have papers in their proper files but what about carrying those big bulging files from place to place?

 

You know the ones I am thinking of. The heavy ones you dread grabbing when you only have one hand open because you know the inevitable. You know that one of these times that file is going to slip right out of your hand putting the papers in complete disarray.

With this new technology Smead has added a grip to the file pocket to make it easier and more manageable to grip with one hand!

We are so confident about Smead Easy Grip Pocket that if you buy 2 boxes of selected Smead® Easy Grip Pockets you will receive a $10 Dunkin Donuts gift card– while supplies last!

Get the Smead® Easy Grip Pocket and never worry about those slippery files again!

PaperPro Desktop Staplers
Posted on April 9, 2013  |  Posted by: nice guys : )

When looking for a stapler we tend to base it on price, how often it jams, how many sheets it can staple at once, staple capacity, and of course, the colors it is available in. Garvey's Office Products asks you to look no further than the PaperPro Desktop Stapler! Not only does its colors include translucent green but to staple something it only requires a finger. Not your whole hand, not your entire body weight (you know you've body slammed your stapler to make sure it got all 20 pages), but just one solitary finger.

 

The technology doesn't stop there! This stapler is an anti-jam stapler, and has a no slip handle and base. So you won't drop and break it mid staple. The staple capacity is a full strip of 210 and standard staples are included! These are the staplers you've been looking for!

Do you mop? Do you mop a lot? Are you tired of constantly changing the water in the mop bucket? Are you tired of pretending your floor doesn't need mopping because you know you have to look at the dirty water, and change it out at least twice while mopping?

 

Well throw away that old bucket and mop. The nice guys : ) are here to introduce the New Rubbermaid® HYGEN™ Clean Water System! That's right folks, it's a mop bucket that cleans the water all by itself! The built in agitators, and water cleaning system that are in place filter the water and ultimately clean it so you no longer have to take trip after trip to the janitors closet to dump the dirty water. Believe me it's real, oh and it works too.

 

Not only is the clean water an excellent and efficient way to mop, but the micro fiber mop itself also has it's own merit. The mop gets floors 45% cleaner than other mops, and does not need to be wrung out to the extent an ordinary mop does, thus saving you hours of worrying whether or not your floor looks cleaner or dirtier than before.
