A Memorable Memory Aid

Posted on 05/15/14 in Office Space
On office desks throughout America, from those of telemarketers to CEO's, you will find notepads. These often include to-do lists, memo pads, or a pad for notes and reminders to be written on, torn off, and thrown away. Promotional notepads offer a fantastic way to spread the name of your business across the desks of many. These small thought collectors have a unique history often unknown to its many users today.

History of the Notepad

Today's modern day notepads had their humble beginnings in 1888 when scrap paper was sewn together in order to create affordable notepads for the general public. Before this time, adults and children alike were reliant upon small chalkboards on which their notes were kept or school work was completed. However, the chalkboard method was very impractical because of its limited space and staying power. After 1888, the notepad became increasingly widespread with a variety of career men succumbing to its benefits:

  • Farmers began to keep notepads to jot down tasks that needed to be performed. This helped them stay organized and make better use of their time.
  • Salesmen began using notepads to track the names and any other relevant information of potential clientele so they were able to market products more directly.
  • Ministers used notepads to write down inspirational ideas that would help develop future sermons certain to please the congregation.
  • Doctors used notepads to write out symptoms and treatment plans for diseases and conditions, helping to streamline the diagnostic process.
