About Captain Notepad
A HISTORY OF quality customized notepads
Since 2000 the company moved several times to accommodate the growth of the business. Finally, in 1998, they moved into a large office-warehouse space where they’ve been for the last 16 years. By 2000, with a focus on printing for the real estate industry, many realtors asked if Jace could print notepads as one of their marketing tools. The answer was “yes!” – and Captain Notepad was born.
