Archival polypropylene sheet protectors help me reminisce about the past

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

If you are like me, as the year comes to a close, you begin to get sentimental about past events.  I am not only thinking about things that happened during 2009, but also what has happened throughout my life. So what else does a sentimental sap like me do, but look through old photo and scrapbook albums.

Since all my photos and scrapbook pages are stored in archival polypropylene sheet protectors, they are safe from the damage that time can bring. And this holds true for your reports, reviews, data sheets… any materials that you want to be protected.The poly page protectors are acid-free, meaning that there is no danger of photo or printer inks, toners, colors or other materials “lifting” off the pages or pictures and sticking to the sheet protector.

Write-on project folders provide gift-giving organization

Friday, December 25th, 2009

If you have been following this blog for some time, you will know that I tend to be a highly organized individual. In my family, there are seven children, including spouses, to buy for.  So to alleviate some of the shopping stress, we do a grab bag. After we pick names, each person sends out their holiday wish list, and their “secret Santa” gets some or all of the items (we have a $100 limit).

It just so happened that this year, my husband and I each picked people who had quite lengthy lists.  So to organize the lists and other gifts ideas, I used the write-on project folders – one of my favorite products! (more…)

Happy Holidays from C-Line

Happy Holidays from C-Line

Cleer Adheer is useful even on vacation

Monday, December 21st, 2009

Previously, I told you that I like to use some C-Line products outside of the office. You already know that I cannot travel without polyzip bags and I planned my destination wedding using the expanding file with handles, but I found a new use for an old item – Cleer Adheer.

Not too long ago, I received these photos from a friend who took a cruise vacation over the summer. The cruise line gave them paper tags to put on all their luggage. The tags were pre-printed with their cabin information, to ensure the bags made it from the pier to the correct stateroom.

Since they also were flying to the port from Chicago, they figured they would not be able to get from the airport to the cruise terminal, put the tags on, and board with enough time. Plus, this was a vacation and who wants to be rushing on a vacation, right?!? Not liking the fact that these paper tags had to be secured to their luggage with merely tape or staples and survive the airline baggage handlers and cruise terminal porters, she thought of something else. Her and her husband decided to laminate the paper with the plastic laminating sheets, to make it stronger, then staple the ends together, to secure to the bags.

The laminating film protected the paper bag tags
the cruise line gave them from ripping.


Custom sheet protectors available from C-Line

Friday, December 18th, 2009

In addition to our stock line of products, C-Line also has an entire custom order department. Yes, if there is something about a product, like a sheet protector, that you need made to your specific needs, we can help.

So for instance, say you need custom sheet protectors that are a special size, like 4 x 6 to accommodate a daily schedule book that your students use. You cannot find this size anywhere and you want to sell it in your school’s bookstore. Or, you want to sell a sheet protector that features a binding strip in the school’s colors with the school’s logo embossed on it, rather than that plain, white strip in our current products. What do you do?

Welded Shop Ticket Holder – The Other C-Line Shop Ticket Holder

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Most people know about our stitched shop ticket holder; with black or neon edges, they are hard to miss. But, did you know that we also make a welded shop ticket holder? In fact, many items in the shop ticket holder line are made of welded vinyl.

The welded holder, or sealed shop ticket holder, is made by welding two pieces of vinyl together to form a pocket. This construction features non-rip seams and makes the product more economical than the stitched version. Many varieties of welded holders are available:

Top loading sheet protectors help college students stay organized

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Recently, I visited my brother at his university in Iowa. While there, I visited the school bookstore to pick up a sweatshirt.  And low and behold, while there, I discovered they sold our top loading sheet protector. This was a huge surprise to me, even though I am not that far removed from those years.
