The Difference Between Yellow & White Rhodia Paper: Would You Like to Test it?

Rhodia Yellow

A short while back we received a comment about the texture of the yellow paper in our No. 19 Staplebound Pads. When the person had mentioned that the yellow paper had more “tooth” than its white counterpart, Karen sent me one of each to test and I would tend to agree. While both papers are manufactured by Clairefontaine and are each 80g in weight, the 80g white performs as expected but the yellow does indeed feel “toothier” and is especially nice when used with a pencil.

So here’s the deal: We’ve got 5 pairs of these tablets to give away. If you are located in the USA and are willing to provide us with timely feedback on the yellow versus white paper with whatever media you prefer, (pencil, fountain pen, gel pen, etc.) please enter your info on the form below and click submit. (The form may not be visible when viewed on a mobile device or if you are subscribed to our blog via e-mail. Please visit RhodiaDrive.com to view the form)

This particular offer is open to USA participants and will remain open until midnight EST on Friday February 21st. Participants will be selected at our discretion and notified by e-mail the week of February 24th with additional details on where to submit the product feedback. Testers are also welcome to write their own blog reviews about these products.

Guest Post: Bring Back My Webbie to Me!

Taupe

Bring Back My Webbie to Me!
By Amit Yariv from Ramat Hasharon, Israel

It was the Great Winston Churchill who said, “I am a man of simple tastes, easily satisfied with the best”, a statement to which I (and I suspect quite a few of this blog’s readers) subscribe with heart and soul.

I am both a lawyer and a writer – both occupations I like quite a bit, one of them allows me to create reality unbound by the rules of logic, sense or common morals; the other one is my writing career. Continue Readering »
