The Case for Briefcases in a Digital World


The briefcase remains an important organizational accessory despite the pared down number of items we transport each day. Available in a variety of styles and price points, the briefcase allows the carrier to arrive crisp and prepared while heralding the user’s professionalism and dedication. If you don’t carry a briefcase, here’s why you should.


Protect precious cargo

The sturdy, regular shape of a briefcase provides a protective structure for all your precious cargo like laptops, tablets, recorders, phones, and even documents. Avoid screen cracks and paper crumples with a well-organized briefcase. For toting heavy binders, consider binder caddies which are specially designed to hold multiple binders and their contents securely.


Don’t be caught empty-handed

Sure, you can upload some of the files and documents you need for your meeting. But what about the tools you need to seal the deal? When you carry a briefcase, there is a place for everything you need. No more juggling items or searching your pockets! Use your briefcase to store pens, notary seal, notary stamp, and more. Don’t forget your USB drive. If your computer crashes or your presentation disappears, you’ll still be prepared.


Power up

Few dispute the value of technology. It is convenient and works great, except when it doesn’t. Don’t be caught with a dead battery. Use a dedicated briefcase compartment for your charging and backup apparatus to ensure you aren’t technologically stranded mid-presentation or client meeting.



Snack smart

Hunger and thirst can derail mood and performance. Be your best, even when the meeting goes long. Carry almonds or a protein bar (both non-perishable) and a water bottle.


Look sharp

Arrive in style with a crisp shirt or jacket and briefcase in hand. Other bags may wrinkle your shirt or jacket, or rub your clothes, causing twisting. Look as put together as you feel with everything you need organized in your briefcase. This is especially important when you need to make a great first impression during an interview or when meeting a potential new client.
