Pricing starts at $9.95 per month for Endicia Standard.

DYMO File: If you've got a pile of paper that's starting to resemble the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Dymo File system ($199 for Office Edition) will help you create digital files of your hard copies. The program creates bar code labels that you can print out using the optional Dymo Labelwriter printer. Apply the bar codes to your paperwork, scan in using your own scanner and you'll have that loose-leaf mess digitally organized in no time.

mimio Interactive: Mimio Interactive turns your dry erase board into an interactive presentation platform. Attach the portable device ($729) to your board--it will work with almost any projector--to turn it into an interactive touchscreen. Want to save those important doodles you drew on the whiteboard? You can also digitally capture the notes you've made.

M by Staples: If youre looking for office supplies that have a bit more style and charm than the usual black and gray, the new M by Staples collection may suit your tastes. Offering everything from notecards and file folders to pushpins and binder clips, the collection features patterns including houndstooth and plaid and higher-quality materials such as genuine leather on its notebooks and journals--all for affordable prices.
