We have started The Paper Project as a way to allow 30 people each week to receive paper samples from products across the various Exaclair brands. Every Monday, we will be offering paper samples from 1-4 products to 30 people on a first come, first served basis. The paper will be mailed once we reach 30 participants and recipients will be notified via e-mail.

- Rhodia 80th Anniversary ivory/grey/graph
- Rhodia Classic white/blue/graph
If you have been chosen to receive samples in any given week, please come back and leave comments on the corresponding week’s page.

One of the new products we introduced this year is an A5 Webnotepad. It is 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 or 14 x 21 cm. The paper is 90g, ivory, 96 sheets. The top of each sheet is micro-perforated for clean and easy removal. We currently import lined for the large size, but it is also available in dot grid and blank. Suggested retail is $26. You can read more about them here.
As a leftie fountain pen writer, I prefer notepads to notebooks. When I finished my No. 16, I thought I would give the large Webnotepad a try. I normally don’t use hard bound writing products because I find them intimidating to put pen to a blank page (Writer’s “Buck Fever”). Much to my surprise, I now carry around the Webnotepad instead of a regular pad. The extra hard back increases the stability for writing.
The time and the quiet to write by hand happens more during my weekend bus commute to the country, or sitting in an Adirondack chair in the backyard–not at my desk. I like a notepad with some heft. It seems to encourage serious thinking.
I would like to get feedback on the A5 from Rhodia Drive readers. Do you like the size? Would you prefer dot grid or blank to ruled? Most important, does it make writing enjoyable for you?
I have five A5s for review. If you would like to enter, please comment on this post with your name and email by Thursday, October 16th. Your feedback on the Webnotepad is welcome–what you like and constructive criticism. Thank you so much.

Contest Alert! Rhodia has designed a new notepad for its 80th anniversary year (1934-2014): a white cover with silver logo pad that we are calling Rhodia Ice. The silver and white pad is emblematic of Rhodia’s simplicity and minimalist design. It has beauty and character and a little bit of mystery. It is quite different than anything else—just like Rhodia.

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.
