Vickerey's classic staple bound notepads are favorites with architects, journalists, authors, designers and scientists. Our pads are staple-bound, made with acid-free pH neutral paper, are micro-perforated on top for easy and clean tearing. The stiff back covers provide the support required, and the staples do not appear on back. Eco-friendly brands like Clairefontaine and Rhodia offer an assortment of colors and sizes. Field Notes offers a pad that is waterproof, made in the USA, and has a real cherry wood cover. If you're looking for a notepad that you can record your thoughts and draft ideas on, that also has high-quality, smooth paper, you've come to the right place.
