Pukka Pads A4 Writing Pad
Advantages: Good quality paper, longlasting pad, easy to write in
Disadvantages: There are cheaper writing pads on the market
I started using Pukka Pads in college, and was impressed by the quality so much so that I now buy writing pads purely by brand loyalty. Though Pukka Pads are a couple of pounds more expensive than supermarket's own brand stationery, I would far rather spend a little more than lose half my lecture notes when a shoddy glued-together pad falls apart on me - my year-old pads in comparison are in near perfect good condition.
Pukka use 80gsm (paper thickness - grams per square metre) good quality paper, which is a clear white and smooth to write on. The paper quality means that fineliners and gel pens don't bleed through, so both sides of each page can be written on. 200 double sided pages lasts a substantial amount of writing, and the pleasantly chunky pads mean that you can write with the pad held, or on your lap, proving very useful in lectures and field trips. The perforated margin and hole punched sheets makes transferring the pages to files very easy, and the cardboard covers and metal binding are strong and hard wearing. The metallic jotta pad pictured above comes in A4, A5 and A6 sized sheets, and is the cheapest style that Pukka produces.
Available in most major retailers, Pukka Pads come in a range of styles (including reporters pads with the spiral binding placed at the top of the page, and project books with movable plastic dividers), these jottas being the cheapest - the A4 pad available at around £3/4. Personally, the quality outweighs any cost issues, and I will be sticking with this brand in the future.
Summary: Well worth the price for people who need pads!
