Thank Goodness for Tape

Tape is an everyday item we use so frequently, that we don’t always appreciate how useful it is! We use it on letters, for posters, to patch up torn paper etc., tape has proven to be very handy when trying to fix something. Now, we see it in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors, strengths etc. But did you know that cellophane tape was only invented around the 1930s? It’s not even 100 years old but it’s incredibly necessary isn’t it? In appreciation of cellophane tape day, we’ve got a bunch of fun tape dispensers and tapes here to celebrate this awesome invention (we certainly use a lot of it in our office)!

It’s Visit Your Relatives Day!

Today marks a unique annual occurrence, known as Visit Your Relatives Day. Family and extended family are so important in today’s society, with many of us having special bonds with our family members, and these bonds are often treasured for a lifetime. Of course, many of us also have relatives we love who live overseas thus it’s not always that easy to see them in person. In cases like this, we can always rely on sending a card or a letter, to let our loved ones know how much they’re appreciated. Check out some of our beautiful stationery, which includes letter sets and pens/pencils, to help you get started on personalized notes for your family.

Meet Kogumachan, from San-X

Your favorite San-X critters, Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori, have a new friend and his name is Kogumachan. The word Kogumachan itself means Little Bear and the story behind this cute new friend is that when Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma were in the Honey Forest, they came across Kogumachan. Kogumachan and Korilakkuma especially struck up a fun friendship, however the two do seem to squabble a little bit when with Rilakkuma! This little guy sports brown fur with a white tuft and is certainly as cute as his new friends. What do you think of this new little guy? Check out our plushies and other cute items of him, Rilakkuma and co!
