We love hearing from you!

Stephanie

We love hearing your feedback as it allows us to tweak our products and expand our offerings to you. It is because of your comments and feedback that we have specifically improved upon the quality and expanded the variety of options on the Webnotebook. Your enthusiasm for our dot grid format has allowed us to offer the dotPad in additional sizes and we’ve even added an additional cover option in Rhodia’s signature orange.

I am fortunate for the opportunity to learn about and try new products from Exaclair before the general public and I always tell Karen my thoughts on each item. Not every item is suitable for the needs of every person but if there is a feature that could be in some way improved upon which might make an item more useful to you, we want to hear about that.

I myself would like to see more spiral bound offerings in the 5×8″ size, with perhaps a blank or dot option.

What features or options would you like to see updated/ added to the Rhodia line, or to any of Exaclair’s other brands?

  1. I bought a top wirebound no. 16 dotpad at the Chicago pen show this year, and I love it. I’m now looking to stock up and can only find the staple-bound dotpads.

    Please make more wirebound!

    Thank you.

  3. I am new to the world of good notebooks. My first was a Moleskine, my second is currently a dot webbie, my third will be a Leuchtturm1917. Let me tell you why.

    Moleskine is out because I want to use fountain pens. Paper is just not good enough.

    Webbie is now out for me because of some simple things which if fixed, would have me buying them still.
    The first problem I’ve found is with the elastic. It is so tight I find it almost unusable. I want something that holds the book firmly and is quick to put on, not which squeezes the life out of the book and takes a while to painfully put into place.
    The second issue is with the bookmark. Even overlooking the cheap material it is made of (woven style bookmarks are much sturdier and simply nicer and classier looking), the bookmark is about 1 inch too short. To be useful and practical, a bookmark of this type needs to extend past the bottom of the book enough to easily be able to get a grip on it. The current length of the webbie bookmark is such that it can easily get lost in the pages, and when it is sticking out, I find myself searching for it.

    I want to love the webbie! And I do, at least the paper. I’m loving the dot grid, and how wonderful the paper is beneath my fountain pens. But in the end this is my everyday notebook. I use it multiple times a day, so the quibbles mentioned above cumulatively become big deals and are enough to send me looking elsewhere for a hardcover notebook.

    Hence my decision to change over to Leuchtturm. Their elastic is a good tension, bookmark a good length, and paper is adequate for fountain pens. Rhodia paper is and always will be better, but that’s why I carry a Rhodia A5 pad with me.

  5. I love Rhodia dotPads! The dot grid format has become my favorite ruling to deal with: subtle enough for writing straight lines or drafting ideas.

    My only suggestion is to offer a top spiral bound version of the dotPad (any size, but especially No. 16) so I utilize both sides of each page. I like having at dotPad No. 16 at my work desk and this would be perfect :)

    Also, co-sign on the dot grid pocket staplebound.

  7. I’d really like to see A4 or 8.5″x11.5″ dotwebbies. They’re available in Europe so I wonder why we ca’t get them in the US. A version with the same white color paper that’s in the dotPads would also be great.
