Talk Back Tuesday: Reporter Notepads with non-removable pages?



“Hi there. I’m a reporter, and big fan of your notepads that fit in my back pocket – particularly the No. 16 wirebound notepad. It’s all perfect except for the perforated line on top. I don’t ever want to remove the pages, and I don’t want them to fall out and they always do while I’m on the go. Do you have a reporter’s notepad that does not have the perforated line?” – from Zach in New York


Sorry Zach, but there are currently no Rhodia or Clairefontaine reporter style notepads offering non-perforated pages. Even the newer Webnotepad shown here, offers the micro perforated pages.


Who else would like to see a reporter style Rhodia notebook with non-removable pages? Would you prefer spiral binding? Or a hard cover like the Webnotepads?

  1. God yes, non-perforated pads. Make them just like the regular ones, glue/staple bound, but without those damn perforations. When I write something, I’ve written it because I want to keep it. Why on earth would anybody want to tear a sheet out of a notebook? They’ve got post-it notes for that (not to mention email, sms, twitter, Slack, &al).

  2. I would prefer spiral bound as well. I really like the Lihit Lab Aqua Drops Twist Ring notepads and hope that Rhodia could do something similar with the better Rhodia paper. I like being able to refill the notepad and take pages out cleanly when needed.

  3. I find that I want the pages to stay in… except when I don’t! I carry a Rhodia Unlimited and keep long-term information in the front (quotes, notes for future use, etc) and short term info in the back (tear out a page to put my contact info on).

  4. Trying to satisfy every potential customer’s need is impossible. I love the webbie formats and would not mind microperfed pages in the least if I were using the reporter stye (which I do not). I was a real journalist back in the olden days. I made manual notes to supplement and emphasize microcassette recordings. I went through small 100-page spiral notebooks like crazy. I filled them long before the perforations could have separated from wear and tear. I got four to ten stories in a book so I liked the spiral format because I could deliberately remove pages, tape them to 8.5×11 pages and file them appropriately.
