Love it!


I'm writing a novel. Just used up a cheap 5 subject notebook that I wrote in for six months and it's falling apart. Just started on one of yours and love how the paper texture makes for smooth, neat writing. Like how wide the pages are and the pocket dividers. Really love the toughness. Will be buying nothing else from now on.

The pocket folders inside do NOT fit a regular size piece of paper. Don't buy if you want to actually use these folders

Don't tear the pages out, you won't be happy


I've had no problems in the past when tearing out pages but my most recent purchase is a whole other story. Disappointing when you have such high expectations

more like no star


whenever i used a fivestar notebook it quickly fell apart the the metal thing always fell out of place to stab me over and over again and or the papers would be ripped or destoryed in some parts of the notebook and no matter how softly i write the paper would just rip making it nearly impossible to use the folder did similar things such as break in half for no reason and the places that held it just usually fell out bottom line i recomend paper folders and 18 cent notebooks over this at least they last longer then 2 weeks under any type of use

Exactly what was needed


So glad we found ORANGE! School required orange and we could not find it locally anywhere. Finding it at Mead online was awesome! If the 'odd' colors continue to be required, we'll order everything directly from the website!

Used to love this now I don't.


Quality of paper has recently gone downhill. Paper is so thin you can see your writing on the back side of the page. It's horrible. This spiral notebook used to be a quality product, until now. I won't buy it again.

Too small now


These used to be my most favorite notebooks to use for work...but no longer. I just bought 2 in Canada thinking that they were the same 8 1/2 x 11 size tear-out paper size and they are not. The tear-out paper is 8 x 10 1/2, and I can no longer fit full 8 1/2 x 11 size sheets in the pockets. I used to be able to store reference sheets inside the covers and in the pockets, now I can't unless I cut them down in size. I had stocked up so hadn't bought for a few years so I'm not sure exactly when these were changed. Maybe this was a cost-cutting measure -- but I no longer find them useful and will have to hunt for a new favorite. What a shame!




Perforated pages do not tear cleanly!


I usually like Mead products but have been very disappointed in my most recent purchase. I purchased these notebooks to use for notes in my college courses. When I try to remove the notes to transfer them to a 3 ring binder, the pages end up jagged and torn because the perforated edges aren't perforated enough. Please fix this so I don't have to start buying another brand!

  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
