Organisation is everything! That's why it makes sense to invest in practical organisation aids right at the start. Your handwriting is a disaster? Welcome to the club. In order to avoid cursing in front of your folders and desperately trying to decipher your handwriting, it makes sense to buy a labelling device. With it, you can easily and comfortably label and sort all your folders, boxes etc. A labelling device can also be practical at home. In our test, the Brother P-touch D400 labelling device scored best. It convinced us with its good handling and a large selection of fonts. It is easy to operate at the table, but can also be used very easily when travelling.

Laminating like a world champion...

... with the Laminator from Fellowes. Laminating is a sensible solution for important documents - so they can withstand transport and do not crumple unnecessarily. For example, if you have documents that you want to show to customers, lamination will keep them looking good for much longer. Other applications include menus in restaurants, posting safety instructions on machines or other equipment, or protecting older documents from fading. The Fellowes laminator can laminate documents neatly and reliably in seconds. If multiple pages need to be stapled together, this can be easily done with the Pulsar+ 300 plastic binder. The Pulsar+ 300 plastic binding machine has a good punching performance and is easy to use. So order comes into your office.

Without a good printer and a good scanner, nothing works

Printers are a horror to most people. No wonder: there are countless models on the market, the printers are expensive and yet often do not work properly. To make sure you don't waste any time looking for the right multifunction printer, we have made a selection of the most popular models and tested them for you. The HP Color LaserJet Pro M281fdw is our test winner with a test mark of 1.4. The printer enables a high printing capacity and a fast print output. So it can be stressful in the office and the printer will still work fast and flawlessly. A further advantage is the many functions: print, scan, copy and fax. So you have everything you need in just one device. The printer can be connected via USB 2.0, LAN, WLAN, Wi-Fi direct, Apple Airprint and Google Cloudprint. With so many options, you're sure to find the right one for you.

If you already have a printer and need a scanner, or need a compact second scanner, the Canon P-208II Document Scanner is for you. The device is so small that at first glance you would not expect a scanner behind it. However, the quality of the scans is very high and the installation of the device is very easy. You can easily use this scanner even when you are away from home and store it in a drawer to save space when not in use.
