Guillotines, Trimmers and Cutters - The first point to clear up is what exactly are guillotines and trimmers as many people refer to them incorrectly. An office guillotine gets its name from the much less popular type of guillotine used during the French revolution and in a similar fashion to those machines the blade a blade is pulled down from above onto the paper to be cut. A trimmer on the other hand has a rotary blade which is mounted onto a horizontal bar. The blade is then pulled across the paper to make the cut. Guillotines generally cut more paper at a time than paper trimmers and are better for scoring paper. Trimmer are less expensive and perhaps easier to operate, they are best suited to an educational environment.

Display Board & Foam Board - A lightweight and strong material used for display purposes at exhibitions or as backing for framing art.

Technical Pens - A broad selection of Rotring technical pens including Isograph pens, Rapidograph pens and replacement nibs.
Cutting Mats - Are used in conjunction with sharp knives such as craft knives to protect surfaces from the blades. They are manufactured from self healing material and come in sizes ranging from A1 to A4.
Plan Storage - Plan storage is used to hold multiple large sheets of paper in a suspended fashion generally on a moveable trolley. Plan storage is an effacement way of storing plans, maps, drawings and any other large documents in a space saving manner. Clamps are suspended for either a wall rack or trolley and these hold the documents in a vertical manner preventing damage whilst also enabling easy and quick access.
