Carolina Pad Review and Giveaway!-CLOSED




The Carolina Pad story begins in 1945 in Charlotte, North Carolina. That’s when Joseph K. Hall Jr. and several business associates managed to scrape up enough money and equipment to start up a school supply manufacturing company. Joe had been operating Hall & Morris, a school supply wholesale business in Belmont, North Carolina. The new company offered composition books, notebook paper, primary tablets, pencils, crayons, and other school supplies. A former teacher, principal, and coach, Joe was excited by
the new company’s offerings

The Review:

The good people at Carolina Pad offered some of their products for me to review. As a mom of 5 kids, I need reminders about events that are happening. Seriously, though I have mom-brain...if I don't write things down I will most likely forget about it. Well that is--until Carolina Pad came to my rescue. I am constantly running out of paper because my kids start doodling on my notebooks and use up all the paper. I received a free sample of various paper products in their line of their 2009 collections:
Simply Chic
The Kendall Collection
Eye Candy
Hot Chocolate
Whimsical Flower

Chit Chat

One thing that I loved about Carolina Pad's products are the amazing and fun designs. They make such a fun statement and are easy for me to keep track of because they are unique. Another thing I loved about their products are the quality. They are made with a such great quality that they can withstand wear and tear from my kids, unlike some other
products I have used previously. (Which is a huge plus!) The notebooks worked great for my notes and I love that they come with an elastic band on them. The coils don't get snagged. And the perforated pages help keep the notebook neat and my notes too.

I loved reviewing their products mostly because I like finding a product that works well, especially when the end result is a product that I would honestly recommend to others.
One of the most impressive things about the Carolina Pad company is that not only do they offer recycled products, but one of their product lines called the Kendall Collection helps in raising funds and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Thanks so much Carolina Pad for the wonderful products I truly enjoyed my review!
I hope that you will take the time to sign up for their consumer insights panel.
