Work gloves are a necessary part of many jobs - often their use can prevent serious injuries. But do you know how to choose the correct type for the work you're doing? All gloves are not the same and understanding the glove type, material and use will help you make the right decision. Let's begin!
I LOVE Trivia Day - and I've got a good one for you today! (Try to answer it without looking it up.)
Today I'm going to test your knowledge of:
You asked for it, you got it!
No, it's not a Toyota. It's a BRAND NEW, SUPER FANTASTIC.......................
We heard you! Our customers have been asking us to bring back online custom stamp ordering capabilities. We wanted to wait until we had a great website to give you - one that is easy to use, easy to navigate and has all the items you want to order - and we think we've accomplished all that with this new site.
Arab American and Chaldean Council (ACC) is the largest community-based human and social services organization serving the Middle Eastern communities in the United States, with 40 outreach offices in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties in Michigan.

Ok - I've got a quick and dirty one for you today. It's going to be a race against the clock and your fellow players to see who can answer it the fastest, but I'm going to challenge you - see if you can answer it without looking it up.
Today's topic is:
Did I spark your interest with that title? Ha ha - fooled you! You thought I was going to post embarrassing pictures of my coworkers goofing around, didn't you? (Ok, well, I sort of am.)
Many of you know some of our staff. You may have a friendly relationship with your route driver, your account manager or the customer service rep you frequently speak with, so I thought it would be fun to do a blog about the things OEX staffers like to do in their spare time. Kind of a "get to know us better" blog.
So here goes:
It's that time of year - Back to School season! The kids are depressed that summer's almost over and the schools are gearing up for the new school year. Teachers are making lesson plans and ordering supplies for their classrooms.
Today's Product Quick Take is a great item for the classroom - Mr. Sketch Stix Classpack Scented Markers.
I recently read an article by Dan Howarth on www.dezeen.com about a new innovation in the field of 3-D printing that may surprise you. Researchers at MIT have partnered with Steelcase Inc. to develop a process they call Rapid Liquid Printing that changes 3-D printing as we know it and may make it possible to manufacture custom furniture in a matter of minutes.
I'm an intelligent person. I've spent quite a few years on this planet already. I have a college degree and I consider myself capable. When I moved out of my parents' house into my first apartment, I saved money by purchasing ready-to-assemble (RTA) furniture and I single-handedly assembled my bedroom dresser, nightstand and entertainment center.
Without power tools.
I read the directions, followed them, and did it myself. My hands were blistered and sore for quite a while afterward, but I did it myself.
I don't know anyone who doesn't use sticky notes. I have sticky notes at the office and at home - I'm sure you do too. They're pretty much an essential part of life. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and lots of different colors - you can get squares, rectangles, flowers, hearts, stars, brights, pastels, etc. Lots of fun options!
This week is a great time to stock up with a quick deal.
Hello Everyone! Did you enjoy your holiday break? Great! Well, it's time to put on your thinking caps and play the Trivia Quiz!
Today you need to summon all your knowledge on the topic of:
Every so often, I post about fun things to do with office supplies and I found some really great ideas recently online that I'd like to share with you. The people who came up with these are way more creative than I am - take a look:
Creative Uses for Rulers
Every office needs a kitchen/breakroom - a place for employees to relax and eat lunch, with essentials like a microwave, coffee pot, refrigerator, etc. Creating the relaxing atmosphere is done in part by the furniture in the room. Ask your self these questions:
- Are the tables in your breakroom large enough for multiple people (and conversations)?
- Are there enough tables to accommodate everyone who may be on lunch at the same time?
- Are the chairs comfortable?
If the answer to these questions is "no," take a look at some of the items we're featuring this week:
Hello my fellow Trivia Geeks! I hope you're enjoying warm sunny weather wherever you are! And speaking of weather...........................today's topic is:
Our world is built around technology. Twenty years ago the "must have" items for business professionals were Palm Pilots (remember those?) or a Blackberry. Now, just about everyone has a smartphone, tablet or laptop computer and we take them everywhere we go. Today's Product Quick Take is a great item for today's business lifestyle - the Lorell Mobile Laptop Caddy.
Today's world concentrates on success. We teach our children that getting good grades is necessary to get into a good college and good grades in college are necessary to get a good job. Work hard at that job and you'll get raises and promotions and you'll be successful and achieve the American Dream. We like winners. We can recite the winners of sports championship games like the Super Bowl, or World Series, TV show winners like American Idol, Survivor or Dancing with the Stars, or the Best Picture Oscar. Theodore Roosevelt won the presidential election in 1904. He was "successful." Who did he defeat - do you know? I didn't. Does that mean the other candidate wasn't successful?
If you work for a company that requires you to swipe an ID badge to obtain access to various parts of the building, you understand the importance of having that badge easily accessible. You need it within easy reach and visible to others. The solution? Lanyards or badge reels - that's what everyone uses.
Lanyards are more common, but they do present a safety issue for some job positions. They are very loose-fitting, swing around a lot, and can easily catch on something - potentially causing serious injury.
Thieves get more ingenious every day. When we find a way to foil them, they come up with a new scheme. Does that mean we should stop being careful? Quit locking our doors? Not watch when we're in a dangerous area? Of course not.
In the area of identity theft, thieves no longer need to steal your actual credit card - all they need is an RFID scanner and they can steal your credit card information just by walking past you if you aren't protected.
Here's a simple product that can help thwart those attempts - the Quality Park RFID Blocking Credit Card Sleeve.
Are you ready for some incredibly awesome and interesting trivia today? Well, I think I've got a good one for you! Today, I'm going to test your knowledge of totally useless trivia related to something that we all love. Our topic is:
