Outline

Typically, ring notebooks are bound with metal rings. Pages lay flat and can be turned, but the design suffers from a number of shortcomings. The rings hit the user’s hand and make it hard to write, and they make the notebook bulky. The Soft Ring Notebook’s plastic rings eliminate these shortcomings by bending when pressed upon so that the user can write freely. In addition, they are shaped so as to avoid bulkiness and so that they feel pleasant to the touch. At the same time, the soft rings provide just the right level of hardness to ensure that pages can be turned smoothly.
