ST. PAUL, Minn.--()--Scotch Brand from 3M is introducing several new products just in time for back to school season to help add personality and creativity to schoolwork, home organization and classroom décor. Long gone are the days when yellow number two pencils and black and white composition notebooks were the standard. In recent years, back to school shopping has become all about making a statement and expressing one’s personality – even with back to school supplies.

Back to School Supplies for Students:

  • Scotch Expressions Tapes and Decals give students the freedom to decorate notebooks, backpacks, lockers and more with the patterns and colors that express their style. Scotch Expressions Decals are available in Candy Carnival, Black and White Bling, Woodlands and Backwoods design themes, and there are more than 50 new colors and patterns of Scotch Expressions tapes, including six new metallic tapes.
  • Scotch Magic Tape Dispensers add pizazz and personality to any desktop. New designs include: Kitty Cat in black and white, Flower Pot in red, yellow and purple, Soccer Player and Spenser the customizable caricature dispenser with repositionable decals.
  • Scotch Restickable Designer Dots and Strips are great for decorating and organizing lockers. These stylish pre-cut dots and strips re-stick more than 10 times and don’t leave behind holes, marks or messy adhesive, offering an easy way to mount photos, reminders or important due dates on most flat surfaces.
  • Scotch Designer Student Scissors, available in colorful, confetti patterns, brighten up ordinary school supplies while providing smooth cutting action.

Back to School Must Haves for Parents:

  • Scotch Repositionable Magnetic Tape creates an instant magnetic display area making it easy to mount reminders and lunch money near the door or on the refrigerator.
  • Scotch Thermal Laminators make it easy to protect, display and preserve children’s artwork.
  • Scotch Designer Multi-Purpose Scissors and Titanium Utility Blades come equipped with high quality blades, making at-home cutting projects hassle-free. Scissors are available in fun gingham or confetti prints.
  • Scotch Expressions Tapes add a little color and flair to boring organizational tasks like labeling lunches or color coding schedules with more than 50 new colors and patterns.
  • Scotch Expressions Multi-Roll Tape Dispenser helps keep 8-10 rolls of favorite Scotch Expressions Magic and Washi tapes stored neatly on any desk or crafting station.
  • Scotch No Run Multi-Purpose Glue makes it easy to complete household repairs, craft projects and more without worrying about drips. The liquid glue dries clear, quickly.

Back to School Essentials for Teachers:

  • Scotch Thermal Laminators are great for a variety of classroom projects from making flashcards to creating a weekly dry erase calendar.
  • Scotch SMART Washable School Glue is great for younger students who frequently get glue on their hands. This washable liquid glue that dries clearly is non-toxic and safe for kids.
  • Scotch SMART No Mess Adhesive Dots are perfect for inspiring creativity in classroom paper projects, such as posters, cardmaking or scrapbooking. The dots instantly adhere to paper surfaces and won’t wrinkle or tear projects.
  • Scotch Titanium Utility Knives have a blade that stays sharp three times longer than stainless steel blades, making it easier to cut thick materials like foam core.
  • Scotch Double-Sided Tape Applicator easily dispenses double-sided tape without needing to touch the tape making it easy to hang classroom projects.
  • Scotch Repositionable Magnetic Tape helps turn any classroom wall into an instant magnetic display area for projects and photos. While repositionable, the adhesive backing mounts permanently to a variety of surfaces and doesn’t curl like other magnetic tapes.
  • Scotch Expressions Tapes and Decals offer a great way to inject some color and personality into any classroom décor or project. With more than 50 new colors and patterns, Scotch Expressions Tapes and Decals can be used to align with various classroom project themes.
