Notepads are also commonly referred to as notebooks. They are undeniably one of the most useful little things that you can carry around with you! That is why we have decided to offer you a large selection of notepads here on the iconsume website.
Notebooks aka notepads are so useful because they come in a variety of different sizes ranging from ones you can put in your pocket to ones that are more appropriate for larger scale drawings and give you more room to write. You can use a notepad for whatever you desire – be it taking notes, writing down things you don’t want to forget or even sketching and drawing.
Notepads have been used for hundreds of years. However, it wasn’t until the late 19th century that binder notebooks came to be. Before this they were made with loose leaf paper, but the biggest problem was that there was nothing to keep the pages in order! The first notebooks were originally covered in a cardboard-like material to keep the paper inside protected.
Over the last century there have been huge improvements in technology meaning that notebooks can be made with high quality lined or plain paper. Today they are protected by plastic-like material instead of cardboard, and come in a wide range of different qualities, sizes and weights.
