Real-Life Dunder Mifflin Paper for Sale: Comcast and Staples Make Mockumentary History
The next time the hard working crew from the ‘The Office’ is in peril, you might be able to help boost sales – or at least, play along.
With twisted mockumentary-meets-reality irony, Staples is offering a new brand of copy paper that brings NBC’s ‘The Office’ to life and to print. The brand is called Dunder Mifflin and will be available on Staples’ Quill.com
As the Wall Street Journal reports, the project was secured through a licensing deal with NBC’s parent company Comcast. Dunder Mifflin paper sales will bestow 6 percent of the revenue back to Comcast.
The packages will come with nifty slogans from the show like, "Our motto is, 'Quabity First'" and "Get Your Scrant on." Die-hard fans can pre-order on Quill.com and NBC-store, but will have to wait until after the holidays to try the "limitless paper in a paperless world." Orders ship on Dec. 26.
In the meantime, Scrantonatics could fill their stockings with Office-themed gifts including the Andy Bernard Bobblehead ($19.95) and a full package of desk essentials titled, "The Office Kit: This is Huge! (That's What She Said) for the low price of $12.00.
