There are many colors that lawyers should avoid. Black is used by some law firms because it’s easy to write on, but dark-colored paper can make it hard to read documents. Blue or green may seem like a good idea at first, but too much blue in the office can make people feel sleepy during long days of work, and green has toxic effects for your eyes if you stare at it for too long. The best color papers are white or off-white—they don’t show smudges as easily as other colors do and they look professional without being boring.
How many legal pads should I buy?
Most offices have two legal pads: one with half sheets (four 8 1/2″ × 11″ pages) and one with full sheets (eight 5 1/2″ × 8 1/4″ pages). The number of full sheets depends on how many different projects are going on simultaneously; the more clients you have who need their own paperwork, the more full sheets you need per pad so that there will always be enough blank ones available if someone needs to take notes quickly while working away from his desk. If you only use one kind of paper each day—for example, index cards—you just need two pads per day plus refills once every few months or so. It’s not necessary to buy an extra set unless your employees work extremely fast with pen and paper; most people prefer using computers rather than pens
