So you must be wondering what do I want to blog about today? I usually talk about arts and crafts here but for today, I would like to talk about convenience for a change. Recently I found this really cool website called Apple Toner that specializes in tending to all your commercial printing needs. That means they sell household and office printing equipment like laser printers, printer cartridges, ink refills as well as repairs and maintenance services (in my case it was for the standard HP ink cartridges). They carry most of the mainstream brands so as long you don’t go all hipster or pick out some obscure brand, you’re good. It’s easy to find a compatible toner for your machine as long as you know what you’re looking for. A quick type on your printer brand and series and the site lists down all the things you’d need.
Apple Toner is a local company based off in Klang but offer nationwide delivery for all their products, even same-day services if you order before 12pm on a weekday. Like most others, I get a bit uneasy when purchasing certain types of products online, and these guys even addressed that issue by placing a 1-year warranty on all their items. So buy something from them and if it doesn’t work out the way you want it, then BAM!!! They’ll sort you right out! So I think that’s pretty cool.
There’s this one part though I thought was a considerate touch - they made a step-by-step walk-through on how to place an order with them. I think it may not seem like that a big a deal for most of us, but I can imagine quite a few beginners to online shopping would appreciate the gesture.
The above photo is a screenshot of the page where they teach you step by step on how to make the order. Like most e-tailers these days, they offer a variety of payment options which makes it super easy to deal with.
It seems they’ve got quite a fair amount of companies as well, tending to government and private companies alike. All in all I quite like what I see so far. Not too bad. I know where I’ll be getting my next refill of HP ink cartridges next time around. Ha! But do note that these guys offer compatible toner types only. NOT the original printer cartridges. But they do boast about its high quality and they’ve got a strong line of customers so that’s saying something. So do check out their FAQ to find out more about this.
I'm so happy that I finally had the time to make my very own handmade hot glue gun holder yesterday using some double sided tape rolls and tissue rolls that I've kept for recycling purposes some time ago. I never throw them out ever since I found ways to recycle them.
You will be surprised to find out the things that you can do with tissue rolls and such especially if you search about them in the net. I for one prefer to use them to make functional things instead of decorative items for now. I can't remember exactly when I saw a tutorial on the hot glue gun holder but it was on Facebook. Ever since then, I wanted to make one so that it would be easy for me to use it. I needed a specific place for me to put it away after using it too. So it was high time I did this project.
Since the double sided tape rolls had prints on them, I decided to paint them to hide those prints. I am just so lazy to paint them but in this case I had to. The prints were too obvious. I just had to hide them. The red acrylic paint didn't manage to completely hide them so I covered it up with the bronze colour. Although it may not look that pretty, at least it served the purpose and got the job done.
At first I thought it would be ok to just leave the hot glue gun holder on it's own. Then I thought it would be good to attach it to the second stationery holder I made. Yup, I have two of them now on my table! Haha! Secure it there so that it would look neat. After that I had another idea of attaching more tissue rolls on the same row as the hot glue gun holder. I needed places to hang some other items like the stapler, scissors etc. I wanted to fully utilize the stationery holder as much as I could.
Some might say I'm a bit frugal for doing this but believe you me, all I was thinking about was how to recycle and how to make work easy for me in future. I definitely have solved my problem by doing this. My pens, and other stuffs never get lost in my studio and are easily found because of this holders. My stationery items have their own place now. Loving it!
Hope this will give you an idea to recycle your tissue rolls and such. At least it will help reduce the waste in our country. :)
