Office Equipment and Supplies

Office equipment & supplies refer to necessities without which a modern office cannot function. Although often used interchangeably, there is a difference between office equipment and office supplies. Office supplies normally refer to consumable items which are used businesses and non-commercial organizations in their offices. Office supplies include, but are not limited to pens, post-it notes, notepads, paper, file folders, labels, index cards, business cards, ink, binders, tapes, scissors, paper clips etc. Office supplies are essential for running any office, and due to their consumable/ perishable nature, they need to be bought on a regular basis for replacing the used items. On the other hand, Office Equipment refers to the fixed items which are more durable and are also essential for functioning of an office. Office equipment includes tables, chairs, desks, lighting fixtures, computers, printers, telephones, fax machines etc.
