Poppin 3 Subject Notebook

Poppin 3 Subject Notebook Cover

    On my recent trip to Staples, the brightly colored Poppin display caught my attention so I took a look at the notebooks that they had to offer and thought it would be a good idea to do another review of a more student oriented notebook as opposed to some of the premium notebooks that we usually review.  The Poppin 3 Subject notebook is available online via Staples and direct from Poppin online. … [Read more...]

Rhodia Meeting Book

Rhodia Meeting Book Cover

The Rhodia Meeting Book comes in both an A4 and an A5 version and you can get either in black or orange.  They both come with 80 sheets (160 pages) of 80gsm paper that are formatted with a date, notes, and action section.  There is also an unlabeled section at the top, which I've taken to using for the meeting description and participants.  The pages are also micro-perforated and separate very cleanly and easily. … [Read more...]

Armed Notebook – The Revolver

Armed Notebook Revolver Cover

Every year I do an "Editors Choice" list of the best new office supply products, which made me wonder if I should do a "worst of" list as well.  I probably won't but if I were to do one, I am pretty sure this series of "Armed Notebooks" that includes a revolver, knife and grenade cover might make the list. Now before you jump to any conclusions, I'm personally a believer that people should own and know how to use guns, and I have been shooting … [Read more...]
