A Few Unknown Facts On Promotional Emery Boards

A little history on promotional emery boards. Emery is hard rock mineral usually ground down to make a fine abrasive powder. Industrial grade emery is generally only found on the eastern side of Naxos, the Greek island. For more than two thousand years emery has been mined there, and sent all over the world for the making emery paper, used in wood working and construction and promotional emery boards. Promotional Emery boards are disposable mail files, made by sticking two sides of thin emery paper to a think wooden or cardboard stick. The emery board was discovered accidentally, during the 1830’s, by a podiatrist call Stitts. He created his ‘orange stick’ for use with removing firm skin and dry skin from feet. He took the idea from seeing an old dental tool that could have been used for filing down sharp or jagged teeth, but the actual use is unknown. He also found that promotional emery boards were useful in filing down nails, acting like a fine sandpaper.

Custom Printed Promotional Emery Boards

Back in the days of the King’s Court at the Palace of Versailles, Marie Antoinette is credited with carving pumice stone into short pen-like shapes to use on her nails. The convenient shape was easier to use and her nails became the talk of the town. Soon, many other women were using the same method to prim their own nails, both feet and hands.

As a rule, promotional emery board is far less abrasive than the regular metal style nail files. Metal files can be harder on the nails and actually cause rough edges, whereas an emery board is gentle. It usually has two sides, a rougher side and a buffing side. There are also other style of emery board which are like long oblong blocks. On each of the four sides there is a fine emery surface, a smooth emery surface, a rough emery surface and a smooth buffing emery surface. The appropriate side is turned to use on the nails and the buffing side can be used to put a lovely sheen on the surface of the nail, for that professionally manicured look.
