A Bigger Spiral?

Stephanie

A short while back when I asked people if they would want to see the dotPads come in additional sizes, someone happened to mention that they would like to see a spiral pad with more pages…  like 250. As Exaclair does not import every Rhodia product from France, I pulled out the French catalog to see if any Rhodia products presently exist with a higher page count. Most spiral products fell into the 80 or 90 page range and even the larger Clairefontaine line didn’t really seem to have something to surpass that mark. I wonder why?Are there any brands of spiral notebooks that have more than the typical “one subject” amount of pages?

So here’s the question, would you want a side-spiral Rhodia notebook with more than the standard 80/90 pages? And if yes, how would you use it?

  1. I’m amused to find this thread but would be even happier to find the actual notebook for sale. If there were a 250-page spiral notebook, I’d definitely buy it. Most notebooks are simply too short for the purpose of journaling; there should be at least enough pages so that you could write a page a day for one year.

  3. I prefer the fewer pages and find the Black N red at 70 optimal and the Clairfontaine basics at 50 too few. I write a lot and go through 6 or 7 A4 sized notebooks per year at work alone and then another 2 at home, but it is the carrying weight that is the deciding factor for me at work and home.

  5. If Rhodia would come out with a spiral notebook with more than 100 pages, I would definitely use it. I love the look of such notebooks as the Webbie for journal use, however sometimes I want to curl up in my bed and write on my knees, in which case I find notebooks such as the Webbie uncomfortable. I don’t use spiral notebooks for journal writing because unless you get the multi subject ones, it’s just too thin for my liking. Plus, the lines on most spirals are too wide, which doesn’t work for me. So, yes… a thick, good quality paper and narrow lined (at most 6mm) spiral notebook would be fantastic.
