Years ago I wrote this article on Deskmate – a set of cards that you can use within the workplace to let coworkers know your current status or whereabouts.

Well, recently I received a new and improved version of Deskmate from Sue Landay at Trainers Warehouse, free of charge, and it is called Deskmate Plus.

Each card is substantially bigger than the former version as they are 5” wide X 7” long. So they are certainly big enough to stand out in your cubicle, office, or on your desk in an open office.

There are 3 different categories of cards – Come In (6 cards), I’m Busy (12 cards), and I’m Away (6 cards). Here they are broken down into the different categories and they are shown in correct order.

(Click on any card for a closer view)

Come In

I’m Busy

I’m Away

My personal favorite is Politics-Free Zone which is so apropos in this day and age of a politically-polarized society. I do like the way that a social media icon is presented in the Come Share card. And the Don’t Ruin my Focus card has a Yoga pose which is appropriate for a world where yoga is extremely popular. There also is a location marker symbol on the I’m Here Somewhere card.

Blank Dry Erase Card for a Personal Message

There just appeared to be a lot of thought put into the cards to be in touch with the world as we know it.

And the extra dry erase board card, which allows you to add a personal message like the one on the left here, is a great addition. It uses dry erase markers and cleans off very easily. A dry erase marker is not included but I’m sure you can find one somewhere at your place of employment.

Here are a few other views of the Deskmate Plus.

If you too think you could benefit from having a Deskmate Plus at your desk, I think you’ll be happy your purchase. The cards are contemporary, very well organized, and nicely illustrated. If you can’t find one to fit your current status you can just write your own!
