Many of us have melancholy childhood memories of returning to school at the end of summer. One of the few upsides was heading to school fully stocked with an arsenal of pristine, new school supplies... finely sharpened pencils, stacks of snow-white notebook paper, multi-pocketed notebooks that cracked with that fresh plastic smell when first opened. New school supplies rocked.
Today, new school supplies look awesome too – if you buy the ones from Carolina Pad. The 65-year-old company reinvented itself over the last decade by focusing on the design of their products. Bold colors, striking patterns and quality materials have helped make good-looking school supplies a “must have” for the back-to-school season. The move also landed the company prime shelf space with some of the biggest retailers in the country, including Walmart and Target.
