Go Back to School with Studio C by Carolina Pad: Giveaway

hypothesis The new collections from Studio C by Carolina Pad will make boring back to school supplies fun, interesting and a great way to express your individuality!

materials Several items from various collections from Studio C including a 1-subject notebook, 2-pkt folder, 1” Binder, Composition book, Ideal Book and Journal.  About Carolina Pad:

“Our products rock – at least that’s what our consumers tell us! With trendy design and great function, Carolina Pad notebooks, binders, and other school and office products stand out from the crowd. You might also catch a glimpse of our fashion collections, with catchy names like Hot Chocolate and Pattern Play, on hit shows like 90210, Greek, and Gossip Girl.

The secret to our design success:  passion, research, and attention to detail. We sweat the small stuff because we know that it’s the little things that count. Our team of talented designers, led by Signature Designer (and Carolina Pad’s first designer) Jacqueline Savage McFee, stays on top of fashion trends and makes sure each product detail is perfect. From concept to prototype, innovation team managers use the latest research to develop school and office supplies that consumers love.


I remember when I was young (more years ago than I care to admit) that I loved going school supply shopping.  There was just something about clean, crisp paper and fresh ink pens that got me excited to start a new school year.  Browsing the aisles with my Mom, the choices were quite simple: red, blue or green folder, one or two subject notebooks and black or blue pens.  But now….it’s like a color explosion on the stationary aisle!

Last year, I was fortunate enough to review some products from Carolina Pad, a leader in fashion school supplies.  I fell in love with their bright colors, bold patterns and unbeatable functionality.  So, I was thrilled to see what they have in store for the upcoming school year.


This year, Carolina Pad has unveiled the Studio C collections including Hot Chocolate, Techno, Royal Twist, Zensational, Sasquatch, and Dreamsicle.  My favorite is the Royal Twist pattern!  The fun colors and feminine design make this the perfect notebook to jot down my dance choreography.  The paper quality is great and I love the sturdiness of the front and back covers.


I am so glad I discovered Carolina Pad.  It certainly lets me add a little fun into otherwise boring school supplies.  You can find the Studio C collection at WalMart, Target and Staples.


Could your school supplies use a little upgrade?  Carolina Pad has generously offered one reader each and every product that I reviewed in this article!
