The Paper Project puts FREE Exaclair paper samples in your hands – allowing you to try before you buy. Every other Monday we will be offering samples from 1-4 Exaclair products to the first 50 people who sign up within that week. There is no limit to how many weeks you can sign up, and each week’s participants will be notified via e-mail that their samples are on their way. 

Week 17 samples for the Paper Project includes 1 blank 90g 6×8″ sheet each from 3 different Clairefontaine sketch pads: 

Clairefontaine Crok’ Book Sketch Notebooks
Clairefontaine Trophee Sketchpad
Clairefontaine GraF it Sketch Pads

Which will be your favorite, and why? 

We want to know how this product stands up to your favorite pens, pencils, paints, and any other art or writing supplies you’d like to try with it- so if you’ve been chosen to receive samples, please come back and leave comments on this corresponding week’s page. We also encourage you to blog about your experience, and/or share links about this project to your favorite social media sites.

Tag #rhodiapaperproject on Instagram and Pinterest. If you’d like us to see your Paper Project blog posts, post your links in the comment section on corresponding week’s page OR to our Rhodia Drive Facebook page.

What kind of comments are we looking for?

  • Tell us what you like/don’t like about the paper: surface texture, ruling, ink, etc.
  • How do you like using your favorite writing/art supplies on it.
  • Would you use it to write/draw/doodle/sketch etc.?
  • …and anything else you think we should know.

Need a few recent reviews for inspiration?

From Jeff Dickerson on Week 10 offerings: “Another batch of great samples. All 90g and absolutely no bleed through with fountain pen ink. All three had great surfaces and my fountain pen grabbed well and dried quickly. The ivory with gray lines is a beautiful color and my black ink stands out on it. Ink dried in 30 seconds but if blotted it dried immediately.”

From Tony Thomas on the Week 13 offering: First, I tried it as a mouse pad. Works great. Next, as a writing pad. Although the grid lines are darker than I would like (I prefer the faint violet lines), it performed flawlessly for writing using a variety of fountain pens and inks. No bleed through and very faint show through. I also tried it with pencil and was very impressed with its smoothness. Another great product from Rhodia and highly recommended!’

Rhodia Week 12 at bjw-draw “This week I discovered an irresistible combo from Rhodia and JetPens. Clairefontaine GraF it 90g paper and the Rook pen. This is a little stubby fountain pen, fine point.It has survived rolling around in my pocket. It is the perfect match for this paper that has just a little bit of tooth to hold the nib but still allow for the smooth line.”
