New ScanCard Director

Director Model
The most popular post by far in the Supply Room has been ScanCards and I have used them on and off for almost 20 years. I think you will like these new notebooks by McKinley Leather. This one is the Director model. All leather and when you open it up you have cards down both sides. No place for a notebook because the cards will replace your notebook. The small leather card holder is for your shirt pocket or purse.

You have 24 cards on each side with a slot for a pen. I am using a Lindy pen. I use the cards for projects but you can also color code your projects with red being the hot one of the day. You can go to and see all the differnet Scan Card sytems that are currently for sale. Thanks to Derek Williams for sending the new Director to the Supply Room for review. There is a good reason why this system is so popular, it works. Add one to your collection.

Kickstarter Polar Pen

Here we have another successful Kickstarter project that I signed on for. The Polar Pen. To make this pen they use thirteen rare-earth magnets which come in three colors. This is the silver color pen and there is also a gold and a black. Refills are limited to the Pilot Hi Tec C which I am using an one of the Uni-ball refills. This pen has plenty of functions and lots of fun so go to for all the details. The one in the picture has the point of the pen under two magnets and the top of the pen would be a stylus under one magnet which I have removed. This pen is fun but it is also a very strong magnet and I have stuck myself to the back of my truck a few times. Add one to your collection.

Pentel Sideclickers

Here we have my first set of Pentel Sideclickers. I had recently posted the clear ones. Now here are all ten together. I remember these from the late 70s when I was over in Germany. I was buying these great pencils at a local stationary store downtown Mainz Germany. The solid ones came out first. They are also great pencils to start a collection with. I started with these in the 70s and never looked back. These are all 0.5mm pencils.  Add these pencils to your collection.

There is a New BIC In Town

I just got it in today. Posted these great medium point BIC PMs on 25 May but I did not have the rare green PM-39. Here she is. The pen is in great shape but did put a real dent in my allowance. The older BIC pens like these PMs are getting harder to find but the green ones seem to be down right rare. I am sure they were not the most popular BIC in the 60s and maybe early 70s so there was not that many out there. Start looking through those desks and see if you can find one. All these BICs can be refilled so add them all to your collection.

New Lamy Coral Neon RollerBall

Not a lot to say here accept I do like this new neon Coral Neon Lamy. Great color. Lamy came out with two new colors this year. One being the Blue Green Al Star on the right and now the Neon Coral Safari at the bottom of the picture. The Coral one also comes in fountain pen and ball point. My collection is growing and yes the purple one is a Hero. Add all these new Lamys to your collection.
