Legend has it a 24-year-old Massachusetts paper mill employee invented the legal pad in the early 1900s when a judge asked him to lengthen the pages to allow for more notes.
It may be a tall tale.
Nonetheless, that taller – 8.5” X 14” – page size people love to hate has been around for over 100 years and the prestige associated with legal sized documents has steadily grown beyond the legal arena.
Despite the efforts of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger, who tried to ban legal sized documents from the federal courts in 1982, or the Project ELF (Eliminate Legal Files) initiative in Florida, legal sized pages are still widely used for business presentations, real estate documents, tax reports, contracts, and financial reports.
Their size undoubtedly adds to the important stature of the documentation they contain.
But that extra three inches at the bottom makes legal sized documents difficult to organize and present.
They don’t fit inside standard folders or binders. And they don’t conform well to most file cabinets.
