Here are 2 things to know before you buy an office/school supply: Capillary refill and Desk. Make sure you read our 2020 official guide on how to purchase an office/school supply if you don't know anything about office/school supplies!

It could feel overwhelming to look at all the products if you haven't purchased office/school supplies yourself, or haven't had it at all. This is why we gathered some information for you so you can be more confident before buying an office/school supply.

Things You Should Know

If you have some exposure to office/school supplies or related types of products, you might already know what some of the words mean. But we don't want to assume that you know and make you struggle while reading product descriptions. Here are the 2 words you need to know:

  • Capillary refill (Refill): Capillary refill time is defined as the time taken for color to return to an external capillary bed after pressure is applied to cause blanching. It can be measured by holding a hand higher than heart-level and pressing the soft pad of a finger or fingernail until it turns white, then taking note of the time needed for the color to return once pressure is released.
  • Desk: A desk or bureau is a piece of furniture with a flat table-style work surface used in a school, office, home or the like for academic, professional or domestic activities such as reading, writing, or using equipment such as a computer. Desks often have one or more drawers, compartments, or pigeonholes to store items such as office supplies and papers.

Appropriate Price Range

Office/School supplies are normally priced in the range of$2.59 - $190.00 per item. So if an office/school supply's price is outside of this range, you should question if the product is actually sold, or the price is worth it.
