Rhodia Treasure Box Giveaway!

******CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED******

Rhodia_Essential_Box.jpg

Rhodia's original notepad design dates all the way back to the 1930's and it hasn't changed since! These lovable orange notepads have a scored folding front cover that folds neatly behind the pad and they contain environmentally friendly Clairefontaine paper. The 80g paper is super-smooth, acid-free and fountain pen friendly. Although Rhodia paper is available as graph, blank and ruled, the graph paper remains the favorite of creative people who sketch, do hand drafting and take notes.

The Rhodia Treasure Box cleverly looks just like a large Rhodia notepad. Open the cover to find 4 Rhodia graph paper notepads of various sizes and 2 triangular shaped Rhodia pencils. These make great gifts!

Thanks for holding this giveaway! Very generous! Looking forward to being lucky!!
thanks

My personal fave is the no 8 pad, for the sheer long narrow impracticality of it. Great for listmaking.

I've never tried Rhodia before, but am very familiar with Clairefontaine -- a major fan here. As a writer to the manor born, I love to write on anything. Rhodia graph paper pads look yummy to me... grrr. (That's my finepaperhungrygrowl, intended to warn other animals of my presence and my claim to the prey. ;) )

Hoping to try out the Rhodia notebooks. I have not had a chance to use them yet. Love the idea of a treasure box for notebooks, though.

I am particularly fond of Rhodia pencils because they are orange with black wood. The wood stays black no matter how much you sharpen them!

I haven't tried any Rhodia paper yet... I'm searching for a replacement for my Moleskine which doesn't like most fountain pen ink. I've heard really good things about Rhodia, though, and am eager to try any of their paper, just to see if it fits the bill! :)

Of what I have, I like the A5 stapled notebooks because they are very simple. If I had my choice I would love to try the webbook large or the elastibook. Really any would do. Great of you guys to do this. Nr

I haven't tried Rhodia before, but I'm interested in testing out the Rhodia meeting book. I love the small size - it's perfect for taking notes or drawing.

I havent used Rhodia before but i think that will be my next choice when i run out of paper. I just become addicted to pens and paper few months ago and i received my first Moleskine just few days ago. Just waiting on my nex JetPens shipment to arrive and maybe Rhodia will be the next thing i order...

I used the stapled 6x8.25 in college for rough drafts in my creative writing workshops. Gave all that up and am compelled to begin again...

I often carry a small pocket sized Rhodia pad in my pocket for jotting quick notes and such. Very handy and the paper is great!

My fav is the 5x5 grid in any format. I carry a piece of 6x8 folder in four in my pocket at all times.. write on all 8 segments and then scan it to archive my notes. I match the 1930's style paper with a 1936 Parker Vac.. also in my pocket at all times.

We are a Rhodia household, now that I've finally converted my husband to them. My favorite is the mouse pad. I don't know how I surfed before it. I'm also anxious to try the meeting book. My husband's ever-present 3x4 pad, on the other hand, is creating the equivalent of the ring on a cowboy's back pockets from the tobacco can.

I've never tried Rhodia paper, but I've been wanting to! I think I'd start with the stapled bound notepad.

My personal favorite would be whatever pad I can find. They're not exactly common in my area, so I'm excited when I see the orange on the shelf!

I've never tried Rhodia before but have heard great things about this paper. I would probably like to try out the graph paper pads first.

Thanks!

I like the A5 like notebooks very much, because they fit in nearly any Organizer and I use MUCH as a PR Guy.


I'm a fan of the 3" x 8.25" pad. The long sheets make nice bookmarks which I can make notes on while reading.

I have never tried any Rhodia products but I have always wanted to since I saw some of them at a local Famima convenient store.The memo pad looks great for work notes.

I LOVE the newer black covered models.

I have the 5X5 notebook and I love the paper quality.

I love the Rhodia pencils and the Poly spiral notebooks for note-taking.

I am a huge fan of Rhodia. My favorite and the one product I can't do without is the meeting book. Since I began using it other managers at my work have also adopted the practice. As a result we have much more productive meetings with great follow up!

Unfortunately, I've never tried any of Rhodia's products before. However, I'd love to try the 6" x 8 1/4" graph paper. It seems like the perfect size for taking short notes in class!

I have never tried Rhodia products before but I hear many great things. Being that I enjoy sketching, calligraphy and writing with nice pens on great paper I have a feeling Rhodia and I will be a good fit.

This is so timely for me - I just decided to try using Rhodia legal pads for work and I love, love, love them. I have the R19600 but if I could lay hands on them, I'd most adore the R18601 or R 186009.

The whole reason for this is my love of fountain pens. I feel like I can write on these papers without jamming up the nib with paper fibers.

If they had one that was graph paper AND 3-hole-punched, I'd be in paper heaven!

using a #12

I'm into the smaller Rhodia notebooks, they are great for all my list making!

I use the Rhodia mouse pad and its been so amazing to use for instant note-taking as i surf the web.

I like the A4 pad and the fountain friendliness of the paper.

I like the small 3x4 that I an fit in my purse.

My current favorite Rhodia product is the black stapled 3x4 graph pad. It's the perfect size for a shirt or pants pocket, and I keep all of my tasks and plans in there. I wouldn't remember most of my life without it!

I haven't used any Rhodia products yet, but I've heard great things, and I think I could get a lot of use out of the various-sized notebooks.

I haven't used Rhodia before but I'm impressed at what I read about their paper quality. The classic staplebound pads sound most interesting to me, to see how well the scored cover works.

I haven't tried any Rhodia pads yet, but as a fountain pen lover, I'd like to try some.

I haven't used Rhodia, but I plan on it. My first choice would be the 4x6 notepad.

I have yet to try any Rhodia products yet but I've wanted to ever since I first laid eyes on their notebooks. I'm a lefty and can't write on a side-bound spiral notebook unless I start from the back, so I'd love to try their top-bound large notebook. It would be perfect for taking notes in class, and they're so unique and known for their great paper, how could you not love them!?

In Brazil don´t exist Rhodia notebooks....
Snif...
Good luck for all!!

I use the 5x5 Rhodia pad with pad holder and my wife uses the 3x3 pad with pad holder. These pads are wonderful for quick notes and their size makes them easy to carry.

The No. 8 pad is definitely my saving grace at the office! I am perpetually making lists of things that I need to do, people I need to call, random things my boss throws at me. The grids and smooth writing surface are just so much more pleasant than those ghastly yellow pads. I know, I know.. my name is Jill and I have a paper problem. But at least it's paper and and not glue, right?

I have a No. 14 pad that I picked up in an art store. I like that the creases in the cover enable folding the cover back. I use the pad horizontally. Fountain pen ink does not bleed through the pleasingly smooth paper. Even my Zig pigment ink pens didn't show through. The Treasure Box would be a wonderful thing to win!

I love the A5 graph pad, but I would love trying unlined pads because I generally prefer writing on unlined paper. Gives me room for creativity :)

This giveaway is exciting! Thanks for the generous idea :)

I've only used the stapled pads - I use 3x4 to carry in my pocket, 6x8 to test new inks and pens, and jot things down, and 8x11 for class notes. I've been thinking of getting one of those long ones for shopping lists, though...

I love my Rhodia pencil. The triangle shape is so comfortable, it feels like a natural extension of my fingers... I haven't tried the note pads yet. I am conflicted as to which I would like to try first. I love the squareness of the Metallic Reverse book but want it to be in the signature Rhodia orange.

I have used the classic pads, wirebound notebooks and meeting notebooks. My personal favorite are the wirebound notebooks; I am very fond of grid paper (engineering profession) and Rhodia offers an excellent quality paper with a grid that is not too strong nor too faint.
I look forward to exploring the February Rhodia sale, and maybe trying something new.

I use a fountain pen and the rhodia paper is great

Classic pad, blank. Pure and simple as it gets.

I haven't tried Rhodia pads before, but I'd guess that the staple-bound 4x6 graph pad (R13200) would be the one I'd try first.

the small rhodia pad it is portable and i am able to grab my cell fone messages and have them in one place

Oh, I'd love the R08200, it would be perfect for all of my list making! Thanks for turning me onto this cool product!

I never even heard of Rhodia. At first I thought it was something to do with Mary Tyler Moore! I'd like to try and use their triangular pencils, very cool.

The lined wirebound pads make for great shopping lists. It's only a shame that the 3 x 8 ¼ R08200 stapled pad doesn't come in wirebound; that would make the PERFECT shopping list pad. :) Thank you so much for offering this giveaway! eyeslikesugar [at] gmail [dot] com

I haven't tried Rhodia but I'd love to try the stapled pads.

I first became addicted to the world of pens and notebooks two years ago, when I bought my first Moleskine. Since then, I've spent countless hours obsessing over what pens to use, what to use what kind of notebook for, etcetera. I'm really excited about purchasing a Rhodia notebook. I'm sure I'd be even more excited if I had a few more coming in the mail for me for FREE, though!

I've never used thier products but the little black and orange notebooks look cute.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I'm new to Rhodia products, but I've heard of them and I look forward to picking up a Rhodia notebook if I ever see one (which, unfortunately, I have not where I am).

I've never used Rhodia before; the staple bound notebooks are probably what I would use the most. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

We love the French Orange pads - I use the R13200 graph for shopping lists and planning dinners and parties. I seem to keep things organized better with the graph paper. Hubby prefers the R18200 graph. He's a retired engineer who draws designs for vintage gokarts he's restoring.

My favorite so far is the No. 16 pad with graph ruling. It's just the right size for letters or quick sketches, and the paper takes every ink I've tried.

My hub is addicted to the no.12!

My favorite so far the the No 18 pads w/ grids. I love how well Rhodia paper work with fountain pens.

I haven't used any Rhodia, that's clairefontaine in there? hmm, heard of that... It's hard to find decent paper out here in the rural high plains, we picked up some bagasse at staples (40 miles away)recently, I guess it's ok. I started with a pheasant quill not long ago, cut it myself. Moved up to a Lamy Safari and dropped it on the nib yesterday, which is how I ended up finding your website. I'm quite sure we'll be doing some business. =8D

Just got a new pen, Binderized flex lefty, and it's crying for better paper...
