If the impression you’d like to give your customers and clients and even your staff is one of class, power and sophistication, then you may like to consider the look of your office. First think, what is it people see first? Normally this is your desk, which many people make the mistake of cluttering! However your desk is your centrepiece and a real reflection of you, your organisational skills and your character. If you’re in a managerial role you’ll need to make sure that you have an elegant looking desk, high quality, suave finish, something which is pleasing to the eye. Your next and most pivotal consideration will be to the organisation of your desk. It’s no good having a beautiful new desk when all you do is leave it covered in mounds of paper work, and let’s face it, that’s no way to keep on top of things now is it? One way of keeping your filing organised would be to file away everything into a cabinet, leaving the paperwork which is incomplete or is needed regularly in a letter tray or desk drawers. This can then be kept at arm’s reach on your desk leaving just enough room for your desk blotter. Now this is a real gem, the queen of sophistication; a desk blotter is THE MD’s dream desk piece!
However aside from their distinguished looks, a desk blotter also protects your desk defending against scratches, heat and moisture and consistently providing you with blotting paper to draw excess ink from your pen. Aimed at professionals and specialists, those who like to experiment in Calligraphy and the art of fountain pen writing would greatly benefit from a desk blotter too.
With your blotting pad, you will of course need some blotting paper (as featured to your right) which is basically a type of paper used to absorb excess substances such as ink or oil. An example of blotting paper’s use is when absorbing excess ink left on parchment when writing with a fountain pen. Blotting paper is also used to remove ink from writing; this writing will appear in reverse on the blotting paper. Blotting paper is most popular when using dip pens and even when using fountain pens and our range of Leathercraft blotting paper perfect for this. Available in Full and Half demy and in colours cream or white, you’re sure to find precisely what you’re looking for at Office 365.
