Teeth Cleaning and Engraving

I got my teeth cleaned yesterday.  I bet you’re thinking, what does this have to do with stationery and pens.  Hold on…I’ll get there! My appointment was at 8am in Des Plaines…about 35 minutes from my house.  Just so you know, getting my teeth cleaned ranks right up there with cleaning the bathroom.  I hate it, but it’s a necessary evil.  And I drive the distance because Dr. Stephanie Skopek is a compassionate dentist.

The metal is loaded into a machine, but the paper is fed by hand, one piece at a time.  You can’t get a better product.
