News: Your Best Value Paper is New & Improved

Your new Best Value PaperAt Perry Office Plus, we work hard to keep prices competitive on the products that are important to you and we know paper needs to stay competitively priced without sacrificing quality.

That’s why we’re transitioning from our Perry-branded copy paper — which would see a price increase soon — to this new Universal-branded paper as your best-value, go-to paper in order to avoid passing on a price increase to you.

We’ve loved seeing our Perry-branded copy paper box out in the community. People use it for moving things, storage things, and we get a little rush when we see folks carrying them around or stacked up in an office storage room. Yeah, I know — “Nerd alert!” — right?

But our customers’ needs are more important to us than a pretty box, or a little free advertising. We know we have to stay competitive and we know that issue often starts with copy paper. We think this new product is a great solution.

The Universal HB Print & Copy paper is produced by the same manufacturer as the former paper so you won’t experience any change in quality, and an INCREASE in brightness — an eye-popping 95+ high-bright paper. That’s more bang for your buck!

The new item number — UNV91200 — will replace the CS140502 effectively immediately and you will see this new item number added to any Favorites Lists where you once had the old number. The old number will continue to work for a brief time, but when your order is delivered, it will be this new Universal paper.

We’re confident you’ll enjoy this new paper and we hope you’ll share your thoughts on the new paper when you get a chance to try it out. Of course, we know copy paper isn’t your highest priority, so we’ll consider no news as good news! 🙂

As always, our Customer Support team is available to answer any questions: (800) 234-6605 or customercare@perryop.com.

5 Office Supplies You (Probably) Don’t Use Anymore

A Post by Bonnie Johnson, Marketing Manager at Perry Office Plus

A reporter recently asked us if we had seen a decline in sales due to the age of smartphones and tablets. Of course, we certainly can’t attribute any changes in our sales over the years to technology, so much as we see the change in products. It’s easy to spot how manufacturers have responded to the changing workplace and economy to develop new products and let the dinosaurs go.

Remember these dusty ol’ favorites?

1. Address Book

No, not the one in Outlook, Gmail, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or on your phone. Remember paper address books? Barely? Same here.

But we do still sell them!

2. Rolodex

Yep, see #1. But again, we still got ’em!

3. Pocket Calculator

The only calculator in most people’s pockets these days in the one that’s on their phone. But does anyone really do their own math anymore? Besides figuring your discount during the clearance sale at the mall, that is. Of course, I’m sure our Accounting department would beg to differ! And we still sell them, too.

4. Pencil Sharpeners

Aside from schools who still use these a lot, I bet you would be hard-pressed to find even one pencil sharpener in your office. We have one and I have used it exactly twice in the last five years. X-ACTO still makes some really great sharpeners, though.

5. Index Cards

Again, schools use these fairly often, but not many others. From homemade flashcards to speech notes, these trusty little pre-cut cards have gone the way of the paper address book, as presenters rely more on notes from their computer or iPad. But we certainly carry them in all their ruled and unruled glory.

Now, these products won’t be going away any time soon because there IS a demand for them, it’s just much smaller than it used to be.  Or have I been too hasty? Do you still use any of these products regularly? Or do you know of any other office “dinosaurs” we’ve forgotten? Comment below and let us know!
