Note pads are a small bit of paper that you may tend to overlook. They are inexpensive, useful and come in many varieties of shapes, sizes and colors. Use larger, lined note pads for more space to write. Unlined note pads provide less space, but may be handier for those little notes from the receptionist to you. Often note pads printed with a company name come unlined, but you could purchase lined notebooks with your company name or logo on the front cover.
Characteristics to consider when choosing the right notepad for a given situation include:
1. The size of the page, which affects both portability and price.
2. The number of pages, which also affects price and the length of use you get out of one pad.
3. The type of binding for the notepad, which is generally a choice between spiral-bound, glue-top or perforated.
