Soft Cover Notebooks

Karen

We have recently received several requests for soft cover notebooks. 

“Any plans to make the webnotebooks in SOFT cover? I’ve been using the webby, and love them, but I wish it came in soft cover!”

Rhodia does not make a soft cover Webby.  Should we?  Do you think there would be a large enough demand vs. hardcover?

The Rhodia Unlimited pocket notebook has a very soft touch cover.  However, it has a lot less sheets than a Webnotebook, and only comes in pocket size. Our sales for the Unlimited continue to grow, especially since it is now available in ruled as well as grid.

The ePure line by Rhodia (which is currently not imported to the US since the paper is made in Asia, not France,) includes soft cover leather journals and a thin, flexible leatherette cover. Both are available in large and pocket. The leatherette version is thicker than a Webby.

I have a few samples of ePure available if Webby owners want to try them out and share what they experience with others on Rhodia Drive. Please comment and let me know of your interest.

  1. I make sure to be the first of my friends and fellow coffeehouse regulars to show off my Rhoda notebooks and journals, and can tell you that I am constantly asked about all of my Rhodia gear including my webbie, however if I showed up with a softcover journal like what you are describing I would be the envy of all. I am a slightly obsessed with Rhodia and Clairefontaine products guy, and I have every shape size and well two colors when it comes to Rhodia which I love of everything I can get in the U.S. I think a softcover is a great idea and would be a great success. And, yes I would love to take one for a test ride. <3 Bodah

  3. CurtisB: I *really* had intended to check the spelling of Leuchtturm before I submitted that. Evidently I forgot.

    Anyway: yes, they have a lovely feel. Regarding the drying times, I’m currently writing in mine using the J Herbin Rollerball pen (the one that takes fountain ink cartridges): I actually find drying time to be OK, but concurrently, there is reasonably bad feathering. Of course, this isn’t the case with Clairefontaine paper, which is why a softback Webbie is my dream notebook right now.

  5. Jonathan, I also just finished a leuchtturm soft cover and I really enjoyed using it. You cannot compare the paper to Rhodia, but I liked the format and the feel of it. In fact I had to be careful what I wrote with in it as some inks take a LONG time to dry in the leuchtturm.
