Marking Paper Clip / Paper Clip

Marking Paper Clip
Marking Paper Clip

Paper clips do not have mark function, so when finding the target file out from many files, it is always hurry-scurry, inconvenient to look for and low efficiency.Through marking in the form of text or graphics on the surface of paper clips, we can quickly find the target file, to improve working efficiency.Marking paper clip is that on which we can make relevant tags in the form of text or graphics, such as time, location, profile, categories, etc. This design not only retains the traditional form and function of paper clips, but also adds the function of tags. So users can use the clips as usual, but work in a higher efficiency.
