The full line of products designed to empower, enrich and excite, while encouraging students to reach beyond their goals and influence the world around them, are now available at Office Depot retail store locations nationwide.

“Launching my own line of NCredible school supplies is a dream come true,” said Nick Cannon. “Back-to-School was always such a fun, exciting time for me as a youth and I am grateful to Office Depot for giving me the opportunity to introduce a stylish and affordable option to help students achieve their goals everyday.”
