I am an admitted paper fanatic! I am completely in love with quality office supplies and especially notebooks to write in. Writing just happens to be an obsession of mine. So, I was absolutely thrilled to discover Roaring Spring Paper Products! It was founded in 1887 and is celebrating it's 125th Year Anniversary as an American manufacturer of Recycled & Sustainable Paper Products! They are one of the largest independently owned producers of school and office supplies so they sure caught my attention.
Roaring Spring Paper knew the way to my heart. I received a whole collection of notebooks and legal pads that were completely unique from any others I have ever used and by far my favorite hands down!!! I will start with telling you about the Genesis wirebound notebooks.
The Genesis is by far the most Premium Notebook I have ever used. I have the 1, 3 and 5 subject versions! The first thing I noticed is the thick and durable vinyl cover which protects your notebook from falling apart. The covers come in gorgeous colors like Plum Purple, Kermit Green, Aqua Blue and Flamingo Pink and are embossed with the Genesis logo in a foiled silver. It has a heavy duty chipboard back for added protection. This is extremely helpful for students who are toting their notebook back and forth from school, along with throwing them in their lockers.
I am in love with all the features on the inside, too! The notebook opens up to expose a double pocket to tote any loose leaf pages in. Then you will find an attached page to complete with your contact information in case it gets lost along with a class schedule/assignments page. The paper itself is a Sugarcane Fiber Paper. Sugarcane fiber is a waste material obtained during the sugarcane refining process. This waste material can then be used as a pulp to create very fine and bright multipurpose paper.
The Genesis is by far the most superior and durable notebook out there! I love mine and continue to use them daily.
I also have two of the Roaring Spring Wide 11" x 9.5" Landscape Pads in canary and white. These are genius! Brilliant! They are basically the shape of your laptop screen, so they are perfect for taking notes or plotting a web design or just for everyday use. I love that they are not the long legal pad length, yet you can still flip the pages.
I am absolutely in LOVE with the thickness of the recycled paper on these. I have truly put it to the test and it has passed with flying colors. For instance, I purchased a well known major brand, expensive daily planner. I went to use it for the first time with my favorite purple pen and it bled through. Really? Ugh! I took the same favorite purple pen and wrote to my hearts content on both sides of my Landscape Pad paper and it did not bleed through! Then I put it to the ultimate test...permanent marker! It didn't bleed through either! How awesome is that?!
Back to my obsession with paper... my #1 paper love is pretty, colored paper. When I realized that I had 3 smaller scaled Wide Landscape Pads in pink, aqua and purple, I was overjoyed! These smaller scaled writing pads are perfect for grocery lists, school excuses, notes to the kids and even love notes to the hubby! Come to find out, you can even get the Genesis Notebooks in these shades as well! The girlie girl in me is thrilled to have a new source for pretty paper!
