Using blotters for desks
A desk pad or blotter is a table protector used for work such as painting or writing which would otherwise damage the table or desk. Many companies like to decorate their boardroom table with a desk blotter at every space, to give a professional look and feel, while protecting the surface.
Different desk pads have specific uses, for example Chinese calligraphy uses a blackvelour desk pad since Chinese calligraphy is written using an ink brush. Here in Ireland we tend to use simpler writing pads with disposable paper surfaces that can be used for writing, note taking, and scribbling. Often these pads are pre-printed with calendar pages.
