Just last week I took notice of the clear acrylic stapler from Kantek and thought it was the bees knees. Shortly after that one of my coworkers let me know that Kantek has a whole line of clear acrylic office Supplies. Most of them aren't very interesting but I'm pulling out all the stops here with my list of the top ten clear acrylic office supplies.
#10. Paper Towel Dispenser
I'll admit a paper towel dispenser isn't very glamorous, but hey it is number 10 right? It'll only get better from here. There aren't going to be many people who need this, but those who do appreciate it. Because the towel holder is clear you can easily see, from any angle how many paper towels you have. You can also easily see if the dispenser is starting to gather dust and gunk at the bottom that you'll need to clean out. A black dispenser would hide all the dirt.
#9 Glove Box Holder
#8 Letter/Paper Sorter
#7 Double Letter Tray
#6 Paperclip Holder
#5 Business Card Holder
So in all fairness the Paperclip holder should be above this business card holder because I don't actually know anybody who keeps a stash of their own business cards on their desk. I wanted to punish the paperclip holder so that maybe next time it would include a magnet. I don't like this business card holder very much, but it does match the set.
#4 Monitor Stand
#3 Tape Dispenser
#1 AcryLight Letter Tray System
AcryLight Letter Trays and one set of AcryLight Connectors (yes everything is sold separately). As I was saying these are just straight slabs of acrylic glued together, they have actually molded the acrylic so that your papers sit on a concave shelf so they aren't going to just fly out. You'll still be able to remove them, but a slight incline of your desk isn't going to dump all your paperwork about. Sure the AcryLight system might be a little on the pricey side, but can you really put a price on style?
