“ Keep your page in place so you can follow along while typing or use it as a desktop reminder with your list of to-do's! „
For a long time now I have had this strange little device sat on my desk just under the monitor. It is something my husband brought home with him one evening as he thought it would help me with my review writing.
The device in question is a 'page up' and it can be used for holding upright a sheet of paper or photograph. The piece of paper that you wish to look at, be it a recipe card, user manual or some notes you scribbled for yourself while watching a film, is held securely in the slot. I suppose you could use the 'page up' either way but I have mine with the small side at the front as the paper is gently curved and angled in a way that makes it very easy to read what is written.
I usually only have one sheet of A4 paper or a photograph in my 'page up' but a quick test tells me that it can comfortably hold 18 sheets of A4 paper, any more than that and it starts to get a bit unstable. The 'page up' could be used to neatly store lots important bills, letters and appointments rather than having them all over your desk or kitchen counter.
My 'page up' is almost identical to the one shown in the DooYoo picture but there are many different colours and styles to choose from on the 'page up' website. One that particularly took my fancy has an analogue clock embedded within it. A quick look on amazon.co.uk tells me that I can get another 'page up' for about £10 including postage.
I think the 'page up' is a good little item, but I would not pay nearly £10 for one, it combines a paper weight with a handy way to hold and display important bits of paper, freeing up your hands for typing and mouse clicking. It also makes sure your papers don't get blown or knocked off your desk and it holds them at an angle that is comfortable to view and read from.
All things considered it is just another cool invention that makes you wish you had thought of it first. It is not something that is crucial to have but it frees up a bit of desk space and stops things from going missing and looks nicer than most other document holders.
Thank you for reading.
==Page Up Paper Holder==
I do a lot of typing both at home and at work and a lot of the time I find it really annoying when having to copy up a document and type it whilst the page is laying on the table. This makes for a really uncomfortable positioning whilst touch typing and it is not good for posture and neck strain. So to combat this problem there is one simple solution which costs next to nothing.
The Page up Holder is a simple item which costs around 99p and is sold in many places. I got mine from a local stationary shop but I have seen them in lots of places such as Tesco, Staples and everywhere that would sell office type of supplies.
The idea of the item is that you can stand up paper so that it is easy to look at whilst typing on the computer as you can stand it up next to your screen. The Paper Holder is a plastic dome shaped product which comes in an array of different colours. Mine is the same turquoise colour that is in the picture but there are pinks and purples and even black colours to choose from.
The Paper holder is not really heavy but they have filled it with a clear sand like type of material. You can see this through the clear bottom of the holder which shows that it is not entirely filled up but there is enough space inside the Holder for the sand stuff to be shake around, although I don't know why.
The dome shape of the holder has a slit in the top of the weighted product where the paper can be slotted in and held in the upright and easy to view position. You can put in a single sheet at a time or a few but probably no more than around 7 or so pages will comfortably fit into the slot. You can however have smaller pages but I think A4 is probably the largest it will take comfortably.
This small item on the desk top is hardly taking up a lot of room but it is a great little item which does the job it is supposed to do and it does it well. I think for 99p it was well worth the money and I would think a top score of 5 out of stars and a high recommendation if indeed you would need an item such as this.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I have used a Page-up document holder in the past at work and have had a positive response to it in the office in the past. It can hold upto 15 sheets of A4 or A3 paper and provides a prominent display for documents and works well for when you are typing up text at work. It is also helpful as it frees up desk space and works on any surface and keeps documents in an upright position in a sturdy manner.
My Page Up was recieved as part of an eco incentive and is white in appearance, containing the words 'Page Up ecogreen'. I am aware it is made entirely of recycled materials and I can imagine a company logo could be attached in order to be used as a promotional aid.
I use the document holder with a lot of success, and have had one or two people borrowing it in the past as it comes in handy and allows the user to sit properly in their chair as they read documents from it to type up. Although it is quite lightweight, it is surprising how well it holds paper and can also be used to display reminders and notes. Taking up very little desk space it is ideal for decluttering a busy workplace and will continue to use it. I would recommend picking one up if you come across them and at a couple of pounds are worth it.
I use one of these Page Up Paper Holders all the time on the desk next to my PC, I do a bit of typing for a mate of my dad's and this makes it easy to prop up the page I am using and brings it up to the same sort of height as my computer monitor so I can see what I am doing easier than having to keep looking down at a flat piece of paper on the desk.
Mine looks exactly the same as the one in the photo Dooyoo have got up but I remember when I came to buy it there was loads of different colours available like pink, purple, clear white and green. I got the blue one because at the time I had a blue computer desk and I thought this colour would go best.
It's a dead clever design. The slit you can see is slightly curved so that when you put your piece of paper into the Page Up it stands upright without bending over at the top. If the slit was dead straight you'd find tall pieces of paper like A4 size would fall over onto itself but the slight curve stops that happening.
It will comfortably hold 3 or 4 sheets of paper but if you try and put any more than that in you'll get a bit of creasing on the bottom of the paper where you have to force it into the Page Up. Any size paper can be used, most of the time it will be A4 you are using but A5 works brill too even though sometimes you will have to slide the A5 paper up a bit because the writing will usually go further down to the bottom of the page and then the Page Up might cover it a bit.
The Page Up can also be used as a paper weight because it has got a wide flat bottom and is filled with crystally granules. This makes the Page Up quite heavy for its size and that also stops it getting lost because there's no chance of it falling on the floor and rolling under the desk without you hearing it.
I paid £2.99 for mine and deffo recommend it to anyone who does a bit of typing on their computer. I have even used it to hold crisp packets when I am doing a review about them because it means I can just glance across for any info I need to make my reviews more interesting.
At the moment my desk is a mess - pages are strewn everywhere, each one relating to a different project. One sheet of paper however, is sitting up perfectly, held as if by magic in a colourful base. The base is known as a 'Page Up' - and if you hadn't already guessed, its sole purpose is to make a sheet of paper stand upright. 'Why would you want to do that?' you may ask... well, for a number of reasons really. If I am reading an important document, I want it in front of me next to the computer screen, rather than on the desk mixed in with all the junk that may have accumulated.
To use the product, you just take the sheet of paper you want holding, and slide it into the slightly curved slot section on top of the Page Up - it really is as simple as that. The device can hold a few sheets of paper at a time - if it's standard thickness printing A4, you can get around six into it, although I have only ever needed it for one. You can put paper in both ways (portrait or landscape) and due to the curve on the loading slot, the paper will stand up straight without folding or flopping over.
The Page Up company (which I believe is French) was founded in 1996, and to date has an estimated 15 million users in 42 countries - however, that's only the beginning of the company's ambitions, with the overall aim being "One Page Up per person... in the world". Somehow, I think that may not happen - but who knows!
Page Up's come in all sorts of designs, and the 'Crystal Colour' version contains millions of sand-like grains which are available in a variety of colours. Although the one shown in the picture has a blue plastic shell with blue sand inside, the one I own is a funky bright orange with a clear perspex exterior. The product is small enough to fit into the hand, and has four rubber feet which prevent the Page Up from sliding around on most surfaces.
This handy page holder really is easy to use, and has helped me be even more efficient, if that's possible ;), when dealing with important documents.
In summary, the Page Up;
-Makes documents easier to read
-Increases work surface space
-Stands all paper formats including A3
-Leaves documents unmarked and not damaged
The product is available in many stationers throughout the country, and costs in the region of £3.99 - highly recommended.
