Review: I love stationery, and although James disagrees with me, I don’t think I ever can get enough. 3M have some great stationery products available to school starters this Autumn, including some great new Scotch and Post-it products. We were sent a selection of products from their range to try out, and I have been using them for a few weeks now.
The Back to School Stationery Essentials pack includes a set of yellow Post-it super sticky notes, a Scotch magic tape dispenser with 7.5m of tape, some blue Post-it index markers, and a Scotch Glue Stick. It’s a great set of stationery basics for school or work, with post its to make notes on, tape and glue to stick things, and index markers to keep track of important pages in books.
Magic tape is great because it virtually disappears on most surfaces when stuck down, and you can write on it with pen or pencil. This small dispenser is perfect for slipping in a school bag or sitting on your desk.
I love Super Sticky notes as you can put them on vertical surfaces such as walls and they don’t fall off. We have a Post-it super sticky note stuck to the wall above our alarm box with the instructions for it (not the code, obviously!) scribbled on, and it has been there for around a year now without coming off. These yellow notes and also the neon pink ones will definitely come in handy.
This magic tape flip dispenser is brilliant! One thing I hate about tape dispensers is you inevitably get dust and stuff sticking to your tape. With this tape dispenser, you can just close it up after use and then flip it open when you need it. This makes it perfect for school bags.
Overall I’ve been really pleased with this range of products from 3M. They are a brand I trust after using their products for many years, and this set of stationery goodies doesn’t disappoint. The prices are reasonable, especially in the case of the stationery set.
