Index cards might seem like a pretty straightforward piece of stationery, but they’re much more than just any piece of paper. Investing in the right index cards can make or break your project, and set you up for efficiency and success for years to come. Keep in mind a few different options, and you can make sure the index cards you choose are perfectly suited for your goals. Consider lining, coloration, and your filing system, and you’re sure to find the best index cards for all of your note-taking needs. Keep reading to fill your office up with enough index cards to make sure you’ll never forget an important detail, or lose an idea again.
Classic index cards are evenly ruled with distinct lines that ensure your notes are as neat as possible. This style of index card is great for adding addresses to filing systems or making long and detailed notes about your subject. However, blank index cards are also popular and have a range of uses that their ruled counterparts can’t measure up to. Blank index cards are great for illustrations and diagrams and are also useful for students who prefer a more freeform note-taking style such as brainstorming.
Typical paperwhite is also a popular color choice for index cards. Crisp White cards allow your notes to stand out and make sure there’s no room for confusion even with the most elaborate handwriting or the smallest print. Despite this standard, index cards are also available in a range of bright and eye-catching colors. Colored index cards are a blessing for those of us putting together detailed notes or filing systems, and allow us to color-code our cards so it never takes too long to get to the right one. Colored cards are also great for craft projects, and make studying that much more fun for the little ones.
For some of us wrapping a rubber band around our index cards might be a good enough way to keep them all in one place. On the other hand, some of us need a solid system to keep our notes in check. Investing in index cards that come with a dedicated folder or cabinet can be a great way to ensure that that one card you need never goes missing. If you don’t have dedicated office space, keep a lookout for index cards that come with a clip or a key ring, so you can keep your ideas together even when you are on the go. Hold on to these ideas when you’re shopping for your next set of index cards, and you’re sure to find something that will take your notes to the next level.
