Rhodia fans will sometimes write to us for help in finding a product they want, but cannot locate it close to home or online. We try to put them in touch with a retailer, or ask one of our retailers to please sell it online.
One recent request was for a Rhodia Ice A5 side-stapled notebook with graph paper (Ref. 119181). We started to import these products this summer, after we got a good reception at the stationery and gift show. They will be in our 2016 catalog.
People will also write to us about products they have seen on the French Rhodia website. We import many–but not all–of the products Rhodia makes. If we get enough requests from fans we will bring the product(s) over for a show or two and see what reception we get from retail buyers. If there is interest, we usually bring it in.
Is it possible to special order products from France that we don’t carry? Yes–with some stiff caveats.
The order cannot be for one or two products–but the minimum that France requires for export. That usually adds up to several hundred dollars or multiple case packs of an item. The products need to be prepaid, the shipping prepaid, and the order cannot be cancelled or products returned. Finally, the special orders are shipped with our regular containers, so the products may not arrive for 8-12 weeks.
Please continue to tell us what you want. Your voice counts. Thanks.
