Great Nottingham Based Businesses

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

At Office Allsorts we’re not greedy. While we like to think of ourselves as one of the great Nottingham based business suppliers, we won’t hog the limelight.

Nottingham is a bustling business hub and is part of the UK’s Core Cities Group – cities that have been identified by the government as one of the ‘powerhouses’ of the economy. There are many efficient, creative and great Nottingham based business centres and businesses that add to the city’s economy. Here are our favourites:

Trent Barton Bus Company

The ‘really good bus company’ trent barton is one of the few independent bus operators in the UK, and employs nearly 1000 people across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. Its modern, down to Earth, customer centric approach sets it apart from others in the transportation industry.

Recently ranked number 29 on a global list of social brands for its customer interaction, trent barton boasts a fantastic blog and social networking to keep customers informed, engaged and entertained.

Nottingham Science Park

Nottingham Science Park

This architecturally stunning business hub is home to a high concentration of companies specialising in science and technology, which is arguably the fastest growing sector in the city. Since becoming a Science City in 2005, Nottingham has been able to build on its pioneering research and scientific achievements, and this sector employs over 60,000 people with further ambitious plans for growth. Boots, of course, contributes considerably to this, as just one of the national companies choosing to base its HQ in Nottingham.

Office Allsorts is proud to be part of Nottingham’s business economy, and we work hard to count ourselves among the great Nottingham based businesses. With a lowest price guarantee on all office essentials, including a wide range of stationery, equipment and furniture, free next day delivery on orders over £40 and the best levels of service, including live help, we strive to be the best in our field for price, service and range.

Reduce Your Office Outgoings with Cheap Stationery

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

The economy is a difficult wave to ride at the moment. All businesses would be wise to reduce their outgoings as far as possible, so to put them in the strongest possible position when the going gets tough.

With the Euro crisis only worsening, and Greece getting set to leave the Euro, things are likely to get worse before they get better, with banks being even less likely to lend to businesses than ever before.

Ensure that your business is self-sufficient by making cut backs where you can. Consider overhauling the following areas in order to improve your bottom line:


You office consumables such as stationery and printer ink are an ongoing expense, but one that is easy to reduce. Seek out cheap stationery, consumables, equipment and more at Office Allsorts, which offers the lowest prices guaranteed.




Every business owner has an environmental responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible, but doing so has other, non-altruistic benefits. Speak to your energy providers for tips on how to reduce your energy consumption. Good ones to start with include turning off all equipment and lights etc at the end of each working day, and installing energy saving lightbulbs.

Some energy providers will even install energy meters for you so that you can track where you may be wasting energy.

Negotiate with Suppliers

If you rely on suppliers then now may be a good time to negotiate prices. They’re unlikely to want to lose precious business in these tough times, so make sure that you’re being offered the best possible deal.
At Office Allsorts you can always be confident of the best possible deal on cheap stationery, furniture and office equipment, thanks to our low price guarantee – so overhaul your outgoings and recession proof your business.

The Best Binding Machines

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Binding machines are used to bind loose sheets of paper together to form a bound document, like a book. They can be useful in a number of business situations – from putting together the office health and safety instructions to preparing a pitch for client.

If you’ve decided that you need to purchase a binding machine, Office Allsorts has a wide variety to choose from – lowest prices guaranteed. The three different types of binding machines, and examples of the best binding machines in each category, are as follows:

Comb Binders

Comb binding is a low cost option and involves using a plastic binding comb to fashion documents into a book. The machine punches holes in the paper, before attaching the comb to bind.

At Office Allsorts we have a wide range to choose from, including personal comb binders for light, personal use, to those which can stand up to heavy use.

The GBC ClickBind 15 machine is compact and stylish. Ideal for moderate use in medium to large offices, this machine features an exclusive new ‘guideright’ paper alignment system for accurate punching every time.

Wire BindersGBC Wirebind W20

Wire binders secure the loose sheets of paper together using thin loops of wire. One of the benefits of this method is that bound documents can be opened 360 degrees and can lie flat on a desk.

The GBC WireBind W20 features a flowline pro binding system which ensures paper separating and auto centring as standard.



Thermal Binders

Thermal binders melt pre-glued spines around leafs of paper to create a permanently bound document. The GBC ThermaBind T400 has an audio and visual ‘cycle complete’ signal, as well as adjustable settings for perfect results.
Binding is a great way to create professional looking reports, documents and more. Choose from the very best binding machines at discount prices from Office Allsorts.
