It’s Academic introduces new kind of dry erase notes

BY Allison Cerra

NORTHBROOK, Ill. — It’s Academic has launched its new Re:writes dry erase notes.

Re:writes are thin, flexible and can adhere to virtually any flat or gently curved surface in both heat and cold with help from its patent-pending specialized plastic core. The product is available in more than 50 color and size combinations.

"It’s the last note you’ll ever need," It’s Academic president Bruce Shapiro said. "It can be placed and replaced an unlimited number of times. From the office to school to home, there are literally millions of uses for Re:writes. We’re very excited for this product for back-to-school. We’ve had feedback from teachers and school administrators that Re:writes are better for the classroom than individual dry erase boards. They’re easy to clean, take up less room and they don’t slide off the desk."

Available at such major retailers as Walmart, Walgreens, OfficeMax and RiteAid, Re:writes notes carry a suggested retail price starting at $5.99.

Well, P&G is one of the most popular companies in the world. And it’s nice to hear that despite economic crisis the company has survived and fixed some economic problems. Different, even very successful companies often practice taking out loans and borrowing money. All of us need financial assistance from time to time. Individuals use different services, for example, apply to online pay day lenders Canada or while companies often need bigger financial help. It’s important to support small and big business in every way because they run the economy and create jobs.
