I once got a 6 figure sale with all correspondence on a While You Were Out pad that people still discuss.

It must have taken Selke and the Rocket months to negotiate that deal.

Not at all!
Seriously though, being able to sell something worth $100K or more on a notepad is something you don't see often I guess.

...but when I try to make hand-written documents in unsharpened pencil on my Ziggy pad, people give me **** for it. Good grief.



OK it was crayon.



...OK it was the washable kind of crayon. But I felt the naughty doodle at the side was a nice touch.
