Here’s a great way to add a simple detail to your binders and notebooks. Russell+Hazel makes these great heavy duty rubber bands printed with very cool graphics for a dash of color. You might be thinking, why would I ever use a rubber band around my notebook? Let me share. For some reason, many marketers like myself have an infinity to spiral notebooks and three ring binders for all of the note-taking during those long brain/brandstorming sessions. I never thought anything of it until my colleague in Austin mentioned it when I walked into the conference room with a Mead spiral. She, too, was holding a similar notebook. Since then, I’ve upgraded to Moleskin journals and Muji binders for a more professional presentation, but nothing will beat the joy of writing on college-ruled lined paper. Jumping from meeting to meeting, I’m often handed additional paperwork during those conferences and I’m placing them in the pages of my notebook. A large rubber band can help keep everything in place and address the dreaded accident of letting pages slip out.
