Sizing up your notebook
It’s a stationery item long engrained into our culture – from being a kid and having them at school, to taking them into important meetings, the notebook has a myriad of uses both in our personal and working lives.
But is there a science behind choosing the right notebook for the right job?
Well, no. But there is a huge variation in our personal preferences for the specific touch and feel of a notebook not to mention the issue of where you intend to keep it. Briefcase? Back pocket? Hand bag? Desk top?
Paul’s Paper and Pens offers a range of sizes, so your chosen notebook fits perfectly into your lifestyle – enhancing it, not cluttering it. For those of you who haven’t quite decided what size to go for, maybe our guide will help

Whatever your requirements, the trusty notebook shows no signs of going out of fashion.
