If you've pumped gas, used a grocery cart, or touched an escalator handrail,
you've come into contact with a few of our most germ-ridden public places. But
what about less public spots, like your office? Turns out that's a hot bed of
bacteria too. Before cold and flu season gets into full swing, let's take a look
at the top 10 germiest places at work. Here's our top ten list of the
1. Office phone - According to University of Arizona research, your office phone gets coated
with bacteria from your mouth and hands, harboring about 25,000 germs per square
2. Keyboard and Mouse - Unavoidable and
3. Desktop - Most of us don't wipe
down our desktop before and after eating lunch or a snack, yet food particles
can be a breeding ground. And if you place your purse or briefcase on top your
desk, you've just added to the petri dish.
4. Fax and copier machines - While the toilet seat gets regular cleaning, have you seen
anyone sanitize these recently?
5. Communal kitchen items - The communal coffee pot, refrigerator, and microwave are all
laden with illness-causing germs.
6. Water cooler - The spout rarely gets disinfected and you often see people filling their already
used water bottles or cups with it, sometimes touching the spout directly.
7. Shared pens - You might want to think twice about
letting a co-worker use your pen. On average, surface germs lurk for up to 72
8. Common areas - Conference room armrests,
doorknobs, light switches, and railings, touched by many hands and cleaned only
occasionally, if that.
9. Vending machine - Beware the
innocent vending machine. Fingers, money, and food - a great combination for
harboring potential pathogens. Neither the vendor filling it nor the cleaning
crew wipe down this germy beast.
10. Elevator buttons - There's a reason you see people using their elbow to press their floor.
Even the cleanest person comes into contact with various bugs and bacteria on a
daily basis. While frequent hand washing remains your best defense, add an extra
layer of protection by using disinfectant wipes on frequently touched items and
keeping a hand sanitizer available. And, just in case the bug bites, be sure to
have a fresh supply of cold and flu medicine on hand. With these tips in mind,
you can stay strong and healthy this season and all year long. Twist OP has everything
you need to keep your office clean - go to www.twistop.com and order today.
A group of people have gathered together for the first time. They don’t know each other
well, if at all. What’s missing from this picture? Using name tags or name
badges can make it easier for people who are not familiar with each other to
interact and open up. It’s a simple way to make meetings a little friendlier,
and helps encourage people to get to know each other.
Avery Clip Style Name Badges with Garment Friendly™ Clips attach easily to lapels, pockets and belts and won’t
damage fabrics. You'll find them in standard business card size or larger 3"x 4"
convention size, if you'd like more room to include additional information.
Print names in large, bold type so they’re easy to read, and include a company
logo if you wish. You may want to include additional information in smaller
type beneath the name, such as the person’s company, job title or location to
help spark conversation. It’s easy to design and print your own custom-printed
name badges for any meeting or event with free Avery Templates.
Other ways to help break the ice:
- Arrange seating assignments to encourage people to interact with others they may not work with often.
Use Avery Tent Cards to designate seating assignments.
- At large meetings, help new people get a warm welcome. Place red Avery color-coding dots on
name badges to identify new people. Encourage others to look for the red dots
and introduce themselves.
Say “hello” to Avery Name Badges—and say goodbye to awkward social encounters. Thanks to our friends at Avery for sharing their meeting strategies.
Wow the Crowd with a Powerful Presentation
Presentations can be an important part of business. Big accounts have been won and
lost due to the quality of a presentation. Whether you want to add new clients
or service the ones you have, being a good presenter is a key to
In this article, we’ll show you how to create
professional-looking presentation materials that are easy to put together.
You’ll also learn ways to deliver your presentation so it’s entertaining and
dynamic. Here are some tried and tested tips to make your next presentation a
Prepare presentation materials that pack a punch
The thought of speaking in front of a crowd is a bit unnerving for most of us.
But with some good preparation and a can-do attitude, you can keep the
audience engaged and interested in what you have to say. Here are a few things
to do in advance:
Create a handout they’ll want to keep
Put together the key information from your presentation to pass out to your
attendees. They’ll have something to refer to during your presentation, a place
to take notes, and a handy takeaway to use as a reference later.
Or, if it’s the kind of presentation where you need all eyes on you the entire
time, pass out the materials at the end so they can review your information
afterward and keep it fresh in their minds. To give your handouts a
professional look, start with Avery Durable Binders. Then organize the information inside with a clean, printed-on look
with Avery Index Maker Dividers. The clear label tabs can be customized quickly with free Avery
Design & Print Online software, and it’s easy to create labels for both the front and back of each tab.
Bring a back-up, because the show must go on
Don’t let technical difficulties be your presentation downfall. In the event you’re
unable to project your slides, bring a hard copy of your slides organized in
an Avery Binder so you’ll have something to refer to as back up and can continue presenting
without a hitch.
Get the audience involved
For large audiences, Avery Postcards are
a great way for the audience to jot down questions for you to address during
the presentation, or to get feedback afterwards. For collecting feedback, it’s
always helpful to include at least one question you want them to answer on
their feedback card.
Your cards can look even more professional by
customizing them with graphics and including your logo, too! You can hand them
out at the beginning of your presentation, or tuck them into the binders and
let the audience know they’re there.
One more idea on your presentation materials: if you’re shipping your materials to the conference
location ahead of time so you won’t have to carry them with you, why not brand
your Avery Shipping and Mailing Labels with
your business logo? You’ll have a more professional look down to the smallest detail.
Deliver your presentation like a pro
When you’re presenting, you’re looking for nods of approval, not people
nodding off in the middle of your bar chart screen. Whether you’re new to
public speaking or just a little rusty, there are three words that can help
you: practice, practice, practice! Here are some other simple tips that can
take your presentation from blah to aah.
Be friendly and open - Start with a big, high energy smile and lots of eye contact.
Break the ice - Find a common thread in the audience with topics such as parenting, sports, a
relatable product, etc. and open with a refreshing or heartwarming anecdote to lighten things up.
Interact with the audience - Ask the audience to participate by asking opinions and questions about their
experience on the subject.
Use humor - Don’t be afraid to poke some fun at the obvious, like “This pie chart has so
many colors, it could pass as a beach ball.” You’ll get a lot of smiles and be
able to break any tension.
Keep their interest - Even if you’ve got a lot of facts and figures to discuss, your presentation
doesn’t have to be dry. Mix things up with interesting visuals, share stories
to make points more memorable, and keep the flow of your presentation going at
a good pace.
With the right preparation, customized Avery products, and
a little practice, your next presentation can be your best
Avery, you've done it again. Thanks for wowing us.

Breast cancer is an important
health issue, affecting one in eight women during their lives. Unfortunately,
the most significant risk factors for breast cancer are ones you cannot change -
being a woman and growing older. Despite the fact that every year approximately
200,000 women will find out they have breast cancer, there are still a lot of
misunderstandings about the disease, its diagnosis and prevention. Here we
separate fact from fiction.
Antiperspirants contribute to
FICTION: There are two myths associated with this
often-found internet rumor. First, that deodorants contain toxins that can build
up in the lymph glands of the armpit which then can cause cancer in the breast
tissue. And second, that deodorants inhibit your body from perspiring the toxins
that cause cancer. There is no scientific proof to support either of these
Mammograms are your most reliable way to detect early
FACT: By the time a tumor can be felt via self
examination, it is usually bigger than the average size that can detected by
mammography. When looking for a good mammography center, look a high quality
facility and a radiologist who reads about 300 mammograms a month. Keep in
mind, however, that mammography can sometimes miss detection, so self
examinations and regular exams by your doctor are also crucial to the screening
If there's no history of breast cancer in your family,
you don't have to worry.
FICTION: Every woman is at risk for breast
cancer. About 80 percent of women who get breast cancer have no known family
history of the disease.
Breast cancer can be passed through
FACT: Breast cancer genes can be inherited from your
dad's side of the family. So let your health care practitioner know about cases
on both sides of the family, in both men (although rare) and women.
Your risk for breast cancer increases with age.
FACT: A woman's chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer is about 1 in 200
when she's in her 30s and rises to 1 in 8 by the time she's 85.
Breast cancer always starts with a lump.
While a lump may indicate breast cancer (or one of many benign breast
conditions) there are other signs too. These include swelling, skin irritation
or dimpling, breast or nipple pain, nipple retraction (turning inward), redness,
scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin, and discharge.
Caffeine contributes to breast cancer.
connection has been found between drinking caffeine and getting breast cancer.
In fact, some research suggests the opposite could be true.
There are measures you can take to reduce your

including losing weight, getting regular exercise, lowering alcohol consumption,
examining your breasts regularly, quitting smoking, and getting regular
