Quick, what is the difference between the two products above? Yes, they have different color borders, anything else? Both are 9×12 clear pockets, write on/wipe off.
The one on the left is called C-Line Stitched Shop Ticket Holders. You’ve seen them when you take your car in for repairs, your keys are dropped in along with your contact information and repair ticket. Specifically marketed to car repair businesses.
The one on the right is called C-Line Reusable Dry Erase Pockets. You’ve seen them in classrooms all over the country. Specifically marketed as a classroom item.
Notice both have the manufacturer name, C-Line. The ONLY difference is the color of the trim.
The C-Line Stitched Shop Ticket Holders are sold as a set of 25 for $16.99 or .69¢ each.
The C-Line Reusable Dry Erase Pockets are sold as a set of 10 for for $16.99 or $1.70 each.
I like the colors for the classroom, but depending on how I would use the product, I’m pretty sure I can make an argument to myself that I can get an ENTIRE class set for a LOT LESS and avoid the “I want that color” cries of students.
Which would you prefer?
