The Day-Timer Magna Pad is a great faux leather clipboard that uses magnets to keep the pad secured to the backboard. Three steel posts hold the notepad in place, while the top easily snaps apart to allow for the paper to be turned over or a new pad inserted.
The strong backboard, which holds notepads measuring 8.5 by 11, allows for a level writing surface. There is also an attached holder to keep your pen or pencil in place and easily accessible. The notepads, which are made from 50% post consumer recycled paper, are quite thick and definitely gel ink friendly. The paper also comes in several styles, including lined, notation, graph, and story board.
The Staples price is definitely easy on the wallet, both for the Magna Pad and the paper refills. At Day-Timer, you have different color options as well as a smaller, jotter-style size that is easier to carry. This is definitely something to check out if you are looking for a new clipboard with a bit more style and ease of use.
