Hanger-Shaped Paperclips Are Practical but Pricey

Oh, man. What is it about clever stationery that gets us geeks in such a froth? Pens, notepads and even – yes – paperclips are all enough to awaken a desire normally only stirred by a hot new slab of electronics from Apple or Art Lebedev.

Thus, I am far too excited by these hanger-shaped paperclips, called “PhotoHangers.” In shape, they’re like regular paperclips combined with coat-hangers. In practice, you combine them with pushpins and you have yourself an instant photo-gallery.

It would also be a great way to keep bunches of paper neatly filed, but close to hand. I say “would”, as these are clearly priced to be fancy display hooks and not practical office stationery: you’ll pay a crazy $9.50 for just seven of the things. That’s $1.36 each. Still, it has inspired me to roll my own. Surely a plain but oversized paperclip could do the same thing without modification?
