Default Office / Stationery supplies

Hello -

I'm after some office supplies - namely:
1 - some laminating sheets (small)
2 - wire / comb binding wires

In AD we would buy this from my mate Farook... but where do we get it here? We don't want to go to a high end craft shop in Jumeriah and pay 10x the true cost for this stuff.

I'm in Satwa this evening so near there would be great!

Thanks...

got that... need the sheets and bindings.

basically, I'd like to laminate and bind my smut mags for that wipe clean quality.

well I was suggesting that if I did in fact see a laminator there then they may have the supplies to go along with it. I should have said that I posted that just in case nobody else had any ideas as MOE is not near Satwa anyway.

you have to be waxed - there is nothing for the velcro to grab on to. We use tit tape.

Sounds promising - will check that out too.

We have also found a Farook Stationery in Dubai too so there is hope.
