Arc Notebook Review and Giveaway

I love office and back to school supplies.   I have always been drawn to the neatness, stylish expression, and opportunity for creativity that good office supplies offer.  That is why I am excited to tell you that a representative for Staples has provided me with some new Arc notebook supplies for review and giveaway on this blog.

Arc Notebook Review:

Arc Notebook and accessories
The Clear Poly Arc Notebook from M by Staples offers eight fashionable ways in one package to customize the cover design with four reversible inserts protected by a clear poly cover. Each cover slip, complete with one fashion print and one solid color, can be easily swapped or removed so that a picture, schedule or other notes can be displayed.  The extra covers are also useful for creating dividers for different subjects.  The Arc Notebook is available in two sizes: Letter and Junior.

Arc Notebook Review

My favorite part about the Arc Notebook is that you can easily add, remove and rearrange pages.   It is perfect for school, office, or travel because it is so customizable to fit your needs.  For instance, I will use my Arc notebook for keeping my blog information organized.  I can use the extra covers as dividers to create separate places for my editorial calendar, my project ideas, my follow up list, and my to do list.  Then I everything handy and easy to access in one notebook where ever I go.

I also really like the Arc Notebook accessories to keep myself organized.  You can get refill paper in narrow ruled, graph ruled, project planner, and to-do.  I also saw that they have a weekly/monthly planner insert available and I totally need that.  I did receive poly pocket dividers and those will be great for stuffing business and cards and receipts into when I am on the go at conferences.  I also got page flags which will be great for marking important notes and adhesive notes which will be handy for writing myself notes!  The Arc Notebook System is sort of like a cross between a 3 ring binder and a spiral notebook- you get the best of both worlds.
