Although stenographers and transcriptionists are far more likely to work on stenotype machines or computers, the stenographer’s notebook remains popular for note taking. The distinguishing characteristic of these notebooks is the center vertical rule.

Gregg Ruled

The lines on a Gregg ruled stenographer’s notebook are typically 3/8” to 11/32” apart and have a faint margin rule running down the middle of the page, separating it into two columns. It is designed for use in taking shorthand notes.


Stenographer's notebooks are generally small, measuring 4” x 8” or 6” x 9." A notebook often has at least 70 pages.
