A few interesting facts about the history of promotional emery boards.Emery is a hard rock mineral ground down to make a fine abrasive powder. Industrial grade emery is generally only found on the eastern side of the Greek island, Naxos. For more than 2,000 years emery has been mined there, and sent all over the world for making emery paper, used in wood working and construction and promotional emery boards. Promotional Emery boards are disposable nail files, made by adhering two sides of thin emery paper to a thin wooden or cardboard stick. The emery board was discovered accidentally, during the 1830’s, by a podiatrist call Stitts. He created an ‘orange stick’ to remove firm and dry skin from feet. He got the idea from an old dental tool that was probably used to file down sharp or jagged teeth, it’s history that is somewhat uncertain. He also found that promotional emery boards could be used like fine sandpaper to file down nails.

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 prime their own toe and finger nails. Promotional emery boards are less abrasive than the metal varieties. Metal files can actually damage the nails leaving rough edges, whereas the gentler emery board leaves a smoother finished edge.  It usually has two sides, a rougher side and a buffing side for a smoother finish.  There are also other styles of emery boards which are like an oblong block. Each of the four sides has a diminishing emery surface, from the roughest emery surface and stepping down to less gritty surfaces and finally to the smooth buffing emery surface for the finishing touch. 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 a professionally manicured look.
