Paper Clip 2.0 – It Was Only a Matter of Time, a Long Time

From time to time I like to highlight new business and product ideas.

This is about an innovation to a product that hasn’t changed since 1899. Check out for more info.Clip-Rite clips

What do you get when you cross a paper clip with a sticky note? Clip-Tabs(tm) by Clip-rite(tm), the first real innovation to the paper clip since it was invented in 1899.

A new 2-in-1 instant organizing product for taming the paper monster, Clip-Tabs are now available at more than 1,100 Office Depot stores nationwide, with distribution coming to all OfficeMax stores this October and other major outlets set for later this year.

Clip-Tabs are patented in the U.S. and Europe, and patent pending in other parts of the world. The need for such a practical yet cool organizing tool is at an all-time high according to several studies.

Americans waste 9 million hours each day searching for misplaced items (a study by the American Demographics Society). The average desk worker has 36 hours of work on his or her desk and spends three hours per week sorting piles trying to find the project to work on next (The Overload Syndrome, Richard A. Swenson).

    This is awesome! A great product with paper that doesn’t smear when writing and with three very important R’s…Reusable-Removable-Recycable. Double Thumbs Up!!!

    I just bought a couple of packs at office depot and absolutely love it. Once I brought it back to the office, everyone wanted to use it and they took all my clip-tabs. I need some more but it’s an ingenius idea and like you’ve all said, I am surprised someone didn’t come out with it sooner. I wrote with my gel pens and they didn’t smear at all and they look so cute on my desktop. I absolutely love it.
