I do not believe you will use these for their intended purpose unless you have a private club, bar or restaurant. You very well may be like me, an obsessive note-taker and if you are an obsessive note-taker, like me, then you might also be regularly searching for a new thing to write notes on when a piece of recycled paper is not around. I found these to be especially handy for quick and easy note-taking as they are numbered and I can write the date and even a summation of the note on the side of the check that remains in the book. Every color was appealing; it was too hard to choose. I hope to visit the factory to see how these are produced, will be sure to share the infos. Thin paper, nice font, borderline nostalgic. To keep in arms reach.
