About School Notebooks & Pads
Whether you prefer writing in a ring bound notebook or one with a spine, there’s much more to choosing your notebook for school than just whether you want lined or square paper (which is also an important consideration, don’t get us wrong)
How to choose the perfect notebook
It can be daunting deciding on a notebook, and as many notebook hoarders will tell you, there is no such thing as too many. So how do you go about picking the book that is meant to last you for the whole of the following school year?
First off, think about whether you need lines, plain paper or square paper. There are many different uses for the various types of paper markings. Squared paper is used a lot for mathematics and graphic design type subjects, lined tends to be used for general notes and writing such as for English classes or languages and plain paper is great to use for sketchbooks in art classes or other times when you need the freedom of a blank slate.
Next, you may want to think about whether you want the book to be bound at the side or at the top. It’s all down to personal preference of course - some people swear by side bound books while others prefer top bound pads. Right-side bound notebooks are the most traditional kinds and they are useful for keeping regular notes in classes and keeping track of subjects. Consider also whether you will need to rip out pages as this may dictate the kind of binding you want as some are designed to have the sheets removed and put into binders but others are not and can leave an untidy edge. Top-bound notebooks tend to be easier for left-handed people to use as well, although if you are left handed and prefer a side-bound notebook, you can just flip it over and write in it back to front so the binding won’t get in the way of your wonderful thoughts!
Finally, of course you want to think about the design of the notebook itself. Whether you want something rustic, traditional and are all about simplicity, want something that is more decorative, or even if you want a novelty character design, many stationary enthusiasts will tell you that a beautiful notebook inspires you to make beautiful notes.
So go forth and choose your perfect notebook no matter whether you will be filling it with scribbles, doodles, or meticulous notes.
