Small and lightweight. Easy to fit in purse or wallet. The best tool for handling lots of paper and flipping through stacks or files looking for a certain page or item. Besides inventory at the office, I keep these everywhere, in the house for going through mail, personal filing, and especially in my purse. Have you watched sick people at doctors' offices licking their fingers and flipping through magazines? Now do you want to lick your finger and stick it in that same magazine? Nasty. I give them to the teachers at school too. I feel naked without one. Various sizes available!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
These are probably very nice "finger tips" (for small/medium fingers). Had to return...needed a larger size. Needed for thumb - May need a huge container of Band-Aids to cover all the splits on my thumb,however. Does anyone know whether or not these thumb tips are still made and where they could be purchased??? Had one from my antique collection which, unfortunately, lost in the midst of a huge project of shredding old records. Staples employees were very helpful and gracious. Thanks.
