         I have purchased several of the newspaper binders, and have been very pleased with them. They are sturdy, and they protect my newspapers completely while keeping them in order for me for quick references. I am very pleased with them, and will continuing purchasing them as needed.

         When i left the newspaper world to become a freelance writer, one of the first thing I missed was a supply cabinet full of these little notebooks. So I was happy to learn that I could order them direct from portage in a bulk that fits a freelancer's budget. Even though I'm a tiny account, the company was extremely responsive when, one time, I receive an incorrect invoice. The president of the company was on the phone with me the same day to make sure every thing was corrected.

         I am one happy customer, having received my order of News Reporter's Notebook - found at your company after an eBay search and check of your sponsored link. I've been in the news reporter business for 30 years, and these are the exact design and feel of the notebooks I used(way back when). I am happy to have found the original, it fits so well in the hand and always have inspired great writing. Thanks for keeping this oldie(the notebook, not me) a goodie!

         I was a reporter for six years and used the Reporter's Notebook religiously. I no longer cover news, but i write newspaper columns and screenplays. I still use the notebooks to write my ideas, things i see. I even use it for TO-DO lists and as a tool to write down whatever my wife says. It's an at-my-fingertips lifesaver, and affordable, too. Thanks for such a great resource.
