MSBA's New Office Supply Service Saves Members Time And Money
~Big discounts offered to MSBA members~
By Janet Stidman Eveleth

The next time MSBA members need pads of paper, labels, envelopes, accounting items, computer accessories or other office supplies, instead of running out to the nearest office supply outlet, they can take advantage of MSBA’s newest member service, go online and order office supplies at big discounts in the convenience of their offices. Through a new partnership with Viking Office Products, MSBA now offers members over 31,000 discounted office supplies at an additional ten percent savings. MSBA is offering this convenient and cost-effective office supply purchasing plan as an exclusive member benefit.

In addition to saving time and money, members will receive free delivery of all products for orders of $25 or more through this new MSBA/Viking member benefit. In many metropolitan areas, same-day delivery is likely and overnight delivery for all orders is guaranteed. Viking’s products are already discounted up to 69 percent, and MSBA members will receive an extra 10 percent discount off these low rates.

“When evaluating special arrangements for our members, in addition to saving them money and time, we hope to provide convenience, quality products and service,” states MSBA Executive Director Paul V. Carlin. “Viking Office Products offers members brand-name products, convenience and reliability, and this program will save members considerable time. Viking has been around since 1960 and today is one of the largest business-to-business catalogers in the world, with five U.S. service centers, 10 distribution centers. It will also provide a one-full-year unconditional guarantee and hassle-free returns.”

Members may sign up for this exclusive member benefit by calling (800) 421-1222 and giving the code “MY,” by visiting MSBA’s website at and clicking on the Viking Office Product Link, or by going directly to Viking’s website and entering “MY” in the comments field at check-out. Member questions should be directed to Jan Jones-Branch at

MSBA’s new Viking Office Supply Service is the latest in a long list of membership benefits offered to Maryland lawyers. In recent months, MSBA has added a new Postini® anti-virus email spam-filtering tool to block junk e-mail, a magazine subscription service so members can order and renew magazine subscriptions, an office equipment purchase plan and a special plan for printed stationery, engraved and printed letterhead, envelopes, business cards and other stationery products, all at low discounted rates exclusively for MSBA members. A complete list may be found on MSBA’s website, under Member Benefits, Vendors.
