This would be easy to refill when your paper ran out. As an added bonus, you could flip a page over when you were done with one side and use the other! Sean was really into this feature. Ken thought it was alright but not a big deal…stay tuned for the ending to that story.
As for the size, we were leaning toward long and narrow, a size we hadn’t seen much of in our research. We took some inspiration from our slim notebook proportions, and looked for a silhouette that would fit easily next to our keyboards.

[More sizes? We think so too. Keep an eye out for new sizes coming soon!]
