Glue, Scissors & Stencils Allow Creativity to Shine
Childcare centers, schools and stores with display windows can all benefit from the use of glue, scissors and stencils. Add a fun creative spark to the office, or let your design shop's creative talents shine with the right tools.
Make Your Ideas Stick With the Right Glue
From hot melt glue guns to sticky wax, and from fabric glue to glue sticks to glitter glue, you have many choices for sticking one thing to another. Washable school glue lets children explore art without making their parents unhappy about ruined clothes, while glitter glue in bright, fun colors adds sparkle without causing a dreaded glitter explosion. Fabric glues are perfect for costume and prop shops, milliners and fabric artists. Use a Kaisercraft glue runner to complete store displays or classroom boards, and tack up signs in the office using Stikkiwax dots that are removable, reusable and nondamaging.
Good Scissors Cut Your Effort, Stress and Mess
There are almost as many varieties of scissors as there are materials waiting to be cut. Precision craft work requires the short, sharply pointed blades of precision scissors from DoCrafts. Metal-cutting hobby shears can find a home in the toolboxes of gutter installers, roofers and contractors. Teflon-coated blades on the office shears from Poppin mean you can cut through office red tape without getting gummy. Costumers, clothing designers and upholsterers can save wear and tear on their wrists by choosing curved-blade scissors that cut with twice the force (and half the effort) of straight-blade scissors. Learning to use scissors is an invaluable way for children to gain important hand-eye coordination. Confidence blooms as the child progresses from using four-handled training scissors with the teacher, through safety scissors with rounded-blade tips to a pair of child-sized scissors with pointed tips. Handi-squeeze scissors from Westcott spring open to make cutting easier for special needs children.
Stencils Make Crafting Fun and Easy
Stencils are a quick and easy way to personalize or decorate a wall, add interest to a display, or jazz up a sign. From Folk Art to Art Deco, stencils can help you express a decorative style to impress your clients and beautify the office space with little to no artistic skill required. Children can use simple, colorful stencils to practice letter shapes and manual coordination, and large-letter stencil sets can make it easy to label cabinets and provide signage in the workshop.
You Can Really Get Attached to These Staplers
You might start thinking about hiding your stapler once you've gotten a hold of one of these babies. Choose a heavy-duty steel stapler to staple up to 230 sheets at a time, or try a hand-held plier stapler for strength married to portability. A spring-powered squeeze stapler is ergonomically designed to save on wrist strain, and teachers love the standard executive stapler with a rotating anvil, which allows them to switch from stapling papers to pinning up displays on the cork board.
