Dunder Mifflin Paper, from 'The Office' to Your Office

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Fans of The Office will soon be able to score a piece (or a whole ream) of Dunder Mifflin memorabilia, thanks to a deal between the NBC sitcom and the office supply website

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the Staples-owned will sell Dunder Mifflin brand copy paper as part of a reverse product placement deal. The goal: To sell more paper at a time when hard copies are increasingly going out of style. To that end, packages of Dunder Mifflin paper will be emblazoned with Office appropriate slogans, like “Quabity First,'" and “Get Your Scrant on.”

Cartons of paper are on sale through January for $34.99 each.

Stocks Have a Mixed Wednesday

Gold prices are up again, now at $1,440 an ounce, a gain of ten dollars, and global oil prices are above a hundred one dollars a barrel. Fears about supply are a major drag on financial markets. If gasoline and oil prices stay high they could cut U.S. economic growth . 

The office supply retailer Staples reports an 18 percent rise in fourth quarter profits, but sales were flat.

Strong sales for Costco as profits rose and the result beat analyst expectations. Sales at U.S. Costco stores rose 7 per cent in the latest quarter.
