Review: Rhodia Notepads

Have you ever looked and felt a notebook and said, "I'm going to enjoy writing in this one," if so then you know how I felt about the sample notebooks I received from Karen at Exaclair to review. First ones up are the Rhodia Pads we have the Bloc Rhodia N 14 (4.3 x 6.7in), and the Staple bound Graph Pad-Black (looks like a mini-notebook at 3 x 4 3/4in).
I really enjoy graph paper in notebooks because it helps me focus on my writing, makes me try to keep my writing small and contained in the boxes, and I save paper!

If you haven't had the chance to feel/use the paper in the Rhodia notebooks, telling you its smooth is an understatement! The pages also hold ink very will and I experienced very little bleed through when I wrote this review using my Platinum Preppy Fountain pen from Jetpens. These notebooks make great gifts you can find them in your local Art Stores or online at TheDailyPlanner.com.

Bloc Rhodia N 14 info:
- 80g acid-free white vellum paper - 21.3lb
- 80 sheets
- Perforated pages for easy removal
- Cover folds over the back, which helps when taking notes

Staple bound Graph Pad-Black info:
- Card covers coated and waterproof
- 80g acid-free white vellum paper - 21.3lb
- 48 pages 24 sheets

Very nice review, you just convinced me to go put the first strokes of my Rhodia that I had not tried before today. Now I see what you mean about the smooth paper first hand.

@Office- your very welcome to be honest this was my first time using those journals and I was very impressed; I hope you enjoy yours. :)

Rhodia paper really is smooth and a joy to write on. The Bloc pads aren't that expensive but they are so useful. I haven't come across one of their stapled notebooks in the shops yet but they look cool too.
