HISTORY OF NOTEPADS
When discussing the medium to store writing, we find ourselves going back into the ancient times of where writing itself was first perceived; Mesopotamia around 3200 BC and Mesoamerica around 900 BC saw the first forms of written communication engraved on stone.
It’s only been in the last 100 years where we found a way to record writing in a simplistic, portable and compact manner.
Thomas W. Holley from Massachusetts was said to have invented the first legal pad in 1888 in an attempt to amass more space for information on paper. He made use of scraps from numerous factors and stitched them together.
In 1902 J.A. Birchall from Australia owned a stationery store, and found the existing legal pad inefficient and as such glued together a stack of halved sheets of paper, supported by a sheet of cardboard and named it ‘Silver City Writing Tablet’.
WHY PROMOTIONAL NOTEBOOKS?
The uses of printed notebooks are twofold; their primary practical use and their promotional capabilities are not to be discounted, all optimised with the use of colour by allbranded. Much like with books, the front cover either attracts our attention or they don’t. This in itself reveals just how strong marketing can be and the combination of a quality, every-day item that not only looks great but is branded with your aesthetically pleasing company logo, making use of colours to the max means the possibilities are infinite.
