Innovative Products & OPI Winners

Innovation is a valuable resource and when it occurs it deserves to be recognized and awarded. Every year Office Products International (OPI) hosts North American Office Products Awards (NAOPA). OPI is an info hub of news, analysis, and resources within the world of office products. The NAOP Awards are designed to highlight industry advancements, promote new developments, and recognize truly innovative products. Let’s take a look at two recent winners of the NAOPA top prizes!

Colop e-mark Digital Marking Device

Core Business Product is a category that recognizes innovation in traditional and mature segments of office products. Best Product winners must add excitement and promote growth within their respective categories. This winner, the Colop e-mark Digital Marking Device, has injected energy and creativity into the world of printing.

The Colop e-mark Digital Marking Device is a versatile, handheld, rechargeable marking device capable of full color images and endless custom designs. Using tri-color inkjet technology allows for full color impressions. The e-mark Digital Marking Device is operated via mobile app, which allows you to create and change imprints whenever you choose. The built-in custom design studio, with additional editable templates and stock messages, allows you to upload logos, QR codes, and any design you can imagine.

Innovation of the Year:

3M - Post-It Flex Write Surface

3M – Post-It Flex Write Surface

Innovation of the Year Nominees can come from any category, but the product must have reached market within the last two years. A diverse group of wholesalers and dealers sit on the judges panel, carefully selecting the winner of this coveted prize.

Post-it Flex Write Surface by 3M is an innovation in the truest sense of the word. It combines several known technologies to create something brand new, something we’ve always wanted but never knew we needed. Post-It Flex Write transforms any surface into a whiteboard. You simple unroll, peel, and stick. When you are done (or just want to move your whiteboard to another surface) the adhesive removes cleanly. It can be applied to surfaces such as:

  • Primed & Painted Drywall
  • Painted Metal
  • Glass
  • Finished Wood
  • Other whiteboards
  • Chalkboards

The Post-It Flex Write surface allows users to write in both dry erase and permanent markers. Permanent markers allow for long term planning by preventing smears but can also be easily washed away with a spray of water and the included microfiber cleaning cloth. Yes, we do mean permanent markers!
