In past blog posts, we provide comparisons between different types of notebooks and why the spiral notebook is, in our opinion, the best choice when choosing a notebook. That being said, we have not yet explored the different styles of spiral notebooks on the market, as well as their pros and cons. In this blog post, we hope to help you find the best type of spiral binder for you and provide the pros and cons of different styles of spiral notebooks.
Classic Spiral Notebook
To start with the pros and cons of different spiral binders, allow us to begin with a classic spiral notebook. A traditional spiral notebook is simple, and its simplicity plays into both the pros and cons of this product. A pro of having a simple, classic spiral notebook is that it can be used for various projects, and it can easily be converted as you see necessary. That being said, the traditional spiral notebook’s simplicity can also be seen as a con.
The classic spiral notebook’s simplicity can be seen as a con because other spiral notebook, which we will discuss in this post, have more features to offer the consumer, such as folders, pages, and structured formats. Additionally, the classic spiral notebook can be less functional for individuals who want to start using their notebook automatically without changing the product.
Spiral Notebook with Sections/Folders
Another type of spiral notebook is a spiral notebook with sections and folders. These notebooks can prove extremely useful, especially for an individual trying to start organizing. Purchasing a notebook that has dividers and a structure already in place can help individuals stay organized. That being said, the sections/folders of this type of notebook can also be seen as a con.
Purchasing a notebook with sections/folders can be seen as a negative because it limits the consumer’s use of the notebook to its specific design. For example, if you want to continue working on one section past the section/folder, that information will be separated. The same speaks for if you need fewer pages in between sections/folders.
Structured Format Spiral Notebook
Now, more than ever before, there are products for sale with structured formats. What does that mean? It means that the pages come with helpful prompts when filling out any product, but they can prove to be the least adaptable to a consumer’s needs and let us explain why. If you receive a notebook with sections/folders, you can work around the divisions, or with traditional spiral notebooks, you can add to the binder products from Clipmatic to help organize your work.
A structured spiral notebook tells you where to put what throughout the notebook and does not allow for originality or change. These structured format items have become extremely popular and are often promoted on social media.
This blog post has hopefully encouraged you to get organized and find a suitable spiral binder for yourself. There is no wrong choice when choosing, but each design is best for different projects. And remember, with Clipmatic you can customize your spiral notebook however you please.
