We’re surprised this hasn’t already happened on some fan website somewhere. Or maybe it has. But now it’s official: the fictional paper brand, Dunder Mifflin, portrayed in The Office, is coming to the real world. In a deal between Quill.com (owned by Staples) and NBC Universal, cartons of Dunder Mifflin-branded paper can be yours.

NBC made a two-year licensing deal with the office supply company that will get it six percent of the profits from the sale of the paper. And it might actually be a practical financial purchase. According to the AP: Each box of 20-pound Dunder Mifflin paper — that’s 5,000 sheets — will set you back $34.99, compared to $39.90 for the next cheapest brand of similar weight and color copy paper.”

Economics aside, we love it for its appeal to rabid fans of The Office.  Not that there are any of those around here …
