Embracing Traditional Office Supplies in the Digital Work Era

In the era of remote working, digital calendars, and smartphone alerts, it’s tempting to think that the glory days of physical office supplies are in the rearview mirror. However, no matter how many hours I log on my laptop or smartphone, there will always be a part of me that cherishes the sensation of opening a fresh notebook, engaging a brand-new pen, or inscribing my name on the inaugural page of a tangible planner. There is a certain charm in these quintessential desktop items—from delightful pens and pencils to notebooks to an aesthetically pleasing stapler—that never ceases to be enchanting. And let’s not forget: as our lives increasingly revolve around our digital displays, there is an exciting array of tech-related desk essentials that only add to the allure of starting each workday. Here, we delve into the desk essentials that our team deems indispensable for navigating the work week.

Whether you’re on the hunt for the best planner recommendation on the market or you need a top-notch laptop stand to see you through the final quarter, we’ve got your needs catered for. Continue reading for the desk essentials our team members simply can’t do without.

In this digital age, it can be easy to overlook the importance of physical office supplies. However, these tangible items offer a sense of comfort and familiarity that digital tools often lack. For many, the act of jotting down notes in a notebook or clicking a pen provides a tangible connection to their work, making tasks feel more manageable and less daunting.

One such item that has gained popularity in recent years is the electric height adjustable standing desk. This innovative piece of furniture offers numerous health benefits, including improved posture and reduced risk of obesity and heart disease. Knowing how to choose the best standing desk can significantly enhance your work-from-home experience.

In addition to standing desks, other physical office supplies like pens, notebooks, and staplers continue to hold a special place in our hearts and desks. There’s something inherently satisfying about flipping through the pages of a physical planner or hearing the click of a stapler. These items not only serve practical purposes but also add a touch of personal style to your workspace.

Moreover, the advent of technology has not diminished the appeal of these items but rather enhanced it. For instance, a TV lift can transform your office space into a multifunctional area, allowing for both work and relaxation. Similarly, the best sit-stand desk can seamlessly blend technology with ergonomics, offering a comfortable and productive work environment.

Physical office supplies also offer an opportunity for personal expression. From colourful sticky notes to sleek metallic staplers, these items allow you to infuse your workspace with your unique personality. This can make your office feel more inviting and inspiring, boosting your creativity and productivity in the process.

In conclusion, while we live in an increasingly digital world, there’s still plenty of room for appreciation for physical office supplies. These items offer a tangible connection to our work, adding a touch of personal style and comfort to our workspaces. Whether it’s an electric stand-up desk or a chic notebook, these essentials continue to play a crucial role in our productivity and well-being at work. So, here’s to celebrating the enduring appeal of physical office supplies in the digital age!

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
