Things You Can Keep

We always try and give little pleasant surprises for our educators, like items made of felt by L-Pack and of cardboard by Cartonator. The bags made of felt have been a huge hit.

Our trademark protection masks have also gained popularity during the pandemic. We offer them as gifts and use them at all regional EdCamp Ukraine events during quarantine measures.

Our green flash-drive-pens, the symbol of the NUS reform, have been a huge hit among educators.
