New Sanford Products Make Writing On Difficult Surfaces Easy

As one of the leaders in writing products, Sanford's brands are often the first ones that come to mind when thinking about a specific product. Permanent marker? Sharpie. Dry erase marker? Expo. Label printers? Dymo. Their range of brands has something for every writing need. They aren't just sitting tight either, with two of their brands introducing products designed for some particularly stubborn surfaces.

Sharpie markers are plenty versatile and leave bold marks on most surfaces, but the Sharpie Extreme is here to fill in some of the gaps such as warm weather. The Extreme is designed to resist fading in the sun, with protection against ultraviolet exposure. It also adheres better to tricky surfaces such as plastic, with better adhesion that holds up longer than traditional markers.

Meanwhile, Uni-Ball is rolling out the 307, a continuation of its popular 207 line. Like its predecessors, the 307 is a smooth, reliable gel pen. What it adds to the table is a remarkable ability to dry on glossy paper. While it isn't instantaneous, it dries much faster than other gel pens we tried. Glossy paper has never been friendly to ink (including printers), so this is a big step forward.

One more Sanford update to make your life easier- Dymo is running a promotion where buying a specified number of labels can net you a free printer. This is great for expanding printing operations, registration tables or other places where Dymo printers come in handy.

Stock Up On Safety Essentials During National Safety Month

June is National Safety Month, aimed at promoting accident prevention and precaution at work, at home, or on the road. This month, we're encouraging everybody to look around and identify potential accidents and either find ways to reduce the risk, or have a set plan of action and the tools necessary to handle mishaps that do arise.

There are several deals this month to save some money while investing in safety. 3M is promoting several products for National Safety Month that are necessary for facilities, factories or other workplaces with potential hazards. Consider hard hats for head protection, safety glasses and plugs for the eyes and ears, and particle respirator masks that filter out dust and other dangerous particles that could cause breathing problems. Some special items include corded ear plugs that are less likely to be lost when removed, and glasses with built-in LED lights that will illuminate dark places while shielding your eyes.

Physicians Care is another brand riding the National Safety Month wagon (safely seated and belted in, of course). Check out this page to find many products designed to help keep you, your household and your office in good condition. This includes first aid kits (along with refill packs), small pre-stocked first aid cabinets, packets of over-the-counter medicines, and disaster preparedness kits that include a blanket, a flashlight, and other emergency essentials.

That's not all that's available for safety supplies. Check out our full range of safety equipment and gear, products that include smoke detectors, protective gloves and caution signs.
