Clear all
A professional notebook functions as a creative platform for inner thoughts, new business ideas, to-do lists and everything in between. Staples offers an extensive range of sizes, materials and binding styles. Choose notebooks that are convenient and accommodate the writing tasks at hand, whether you're managing a work project or shopping for school supplies.

Which Binding Do You Prefer in a Professional Notebook?
Spiral-bound Moleskine notebooks hold pages securely and offer flexible page turning. Wire binding is stronger than spiral binding and does not bend and flex quite as much. Double wire binding is especially secure and allows the user to lay pages completely flat for a comfortable writing surface. Though most spiral- and wire-bound notebooks require pages to be torn out for removal, some offer perforated edges for clean tearing, and a few types include specialized binding technology to allow pages to be cleanly removed and replaced as needed. Spiral- and wire-bound notebooks may be bound at the top or along the left side.

Non-spiral-bound notebooks may be sewn, glued, stapled or bound in a hard cover format. Thread binding or a combination of thread and glue is especially secure and allows the notebook to lie completely flat, without the bulk that a ring binding can create. Glue binding, on the other hand, is not quite as strong and doesn't offer the same ability to lie flat. Smaller notebooks with a limited number of pages may be bound with staples.

Paper and Ruling Types for Professional Notebooks
The right type of paper and rulings should accommodate the primary nature of the work you will be doing. A blank notebook might be a good choice for creative thinkers and those who don't want to be constrained by lines. College-ruled paper accommodates small print writing and can fit more words on a page, while wide-ruled paper might be a more fitting choice for those who write larger. Choose quad-ruled paper if you're an engineer or designer who needs to draft or draw. Project planning notebooks offer wide-rule pages and margin space for notes, creating an ideal page configuration for organizing complex ideas. Others incorporate index sheets and label tabs for efficiently planning out your projects.

Choose a Size to Fit Your Needs
Professional notebooks range from small, pocket-size pads with dimensions of 3.5 x 5 inches all the way up to standard 8.5 x 11 inch pages, which can easily be stored in desks and briefcases. Consider small notebooks to keep track of your tax return information with 64 pages for easy note taking or large notebooks with 240 pages for more involved writing and business planning.

Which Cover Material Do You Prefer?
A plastic cover provides a protective and flexible feel. For a luxurious and soft cover, opt for a leatherette material. If you're concerned about damage, consider a more durable hardcover notebook. Other materials include card stock and chipboard. The notebooks at Staples are one aspect of the office supplies we carry, which come in a wide range of colors, from a professional and muted look with black or gray to a fun and interesting hue such as red, purple or blue.
