Can you believe it’s already my 3rd year anniversary writing the Rhodia Drive blog? Guess that means it’s also time to give away a few more of my favorite things!
“If you do not have any ideas worth committing to writing, think up some now, then buy this notebook…I just took my wife to the store today to get her own Rhodia notebooks!”
Well Keith, we certainly appreciate your kind words about our products and hope your wife is enjoying them as well!

Stuart Matz snapped this at the typewriter store on Hudson street in the West Village, NYC. A bit of sleuthing uncovered AFAX Business Machines to be the store in question at 181 Hudson Street, Suite 2A New York, NY 10013.
I haven’t really spent a lot of time in NYC despite it being only a 90 minute bus ride away, and as I am somewhat enamored of all the mom & pop specialty stores that exist there, I should make the ride more often.
Do you have a favorite little specialty shop in NYC? Or in your hometown? I’d like to hear about it.

Have you tried using any of our pad holders and if so, do you like them? Do you find them to be practical for your needs? Do they hold up to the daily punishment of bouncing around in your bag?
While we are not affiliated with Timbuk2, the San Fransisco bag manufacturer founded in 1989, we do want you to know that it is possible to customize a bag to hold your most favorite orange and black stationery products….
The new dotPads are coming! Previously only available with a black cover, they will now be available in orange. Considering that orange is pretty much Rhodia’s signature color, I find it interesting that the first dotPads were only available in black. I was a big fan of the black cover on the first dotPads because I felt it really made a statement of “something totally new” for the brand.
As the orange dotPads make their way to your favorite retailers, will you be buying them or buying more of the black?
PS: We will be giving away a bunch of these at the end of April. Stay Tuned!
Out and about, our friend David Bogie says he spotted this on a fixie parked in front of the downtown YMCA in Boise ID. A fixie? Had to Google that.
According to Wiki: “A fixed-gear bicycle (or fixed-wheel bicycle, sometimes known as a fixie) is a bicycle that has no freewheel, meaning it cannot coast, as the pedals are always in motion when the bicycle is moving. Continue Readering »

Karen recently received some questions about Herbin’s Perle Noire ink. Since this is one I have reviewed and regularly use, I’d be happy to respond.
Is this ink a really dark black? While I haven’t tried every black ink on the market, Continue Readering »
A new Rhodia chart has been compiled on the http://rhodiapads.com/ website. It shows product sizes in both inches and centimeters, ruling and cover options, reference numbers and also paper colors. Is there anything we are missing that you would like to see? I suggested perhaps adding the weight of the paper. Most are 80g but the R series and Webbies use 90g.
I received a recent question from Rusty asking whether Rhodia had ever considered making fountain-pen-friendly postcards or notecards. He thinks they would be a big hit with our fans especially if available in both black and orange versions with a dotted back side.
What do you think? Would you buy Rhodia postcards? Are you finding typical post cards bleed or feather with fountain pen inks?
Our good friend Colin from across the pond recently brought this car to my attention. Said that there just had to be a Webbie in there somewhere…. I agree. (Look at those rims!!!) It’s a Citroën DS3 Racing car. It sports a 207 hp engine, a 0-62 mph time of 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 146 mph just in case you really need to get to the stationery store before it closes.
Watch it go zippity zoom in the video below.
It was in Ulan Bator, capital of Mongolia and coldest city on earth, that the first Rhodia Fashion Show took place last December 15, 2010…
Inspired by the 75th Anniversary of Rhodia and the famous communication campaign of 12 glamorous fashion photographs and combined with a free interpretation of the iconic brand of two fir tree, a fashion show was born. Continue Readering »
While looking over the entries for our Rhodia Leather Pencil Case/Pencils giveaway, (you can still enter till Midnight tonight EST.) I found this delightful comment by a woman named Ginigin from the Inklings blog:
“I’d love a chance to try Rhodia pencils (oh, that black wood!!) and the pencil case is beautiful and practical. My fondest pencil memory is from elementary school. I would get bored in school and used my pocket knife to first shave off the paint and then carve the wood of the pencil into a totem pole. Back then we were allowed to carry a pocket knife, though I think I was the only girl to do so.”
Any wood carvers out there? The thought of a black/orange pencil carving sounds so very dramatic!
