I received an email that the cover has been delivered but I only received the notebook. Is the cover being sent in a separate package? Or is this a mistake?
liteberer
Same thing for me, I will contact customer support , they were supposed to be shipped seperately, but I have no other tracking number.
Anyone out there in massdrop land own this cover and the Rustico webbie cover? Any opinions as to which is better?
Does this fit the Rhoda Meeting A5 notebook or just the Webbook?
Trinita
This cover only fits the rhodia A5 webnotebook, but we do have custom services that could modify the design to fit a similar notebook of your choice. Shoot us an email at service@allegorygoods.com for details.
Well, my allegory webnotebook cover doesn't even fit the A5 Rhodia it's supposed to. You can tell they stitched to far in and the notebook pulls at the leather. Disappointing. The stitching is also much sloppier than the pictures here. Also disappointing.

Let's get that replaced for you right away! Shoot us an email at service@allegorygoods.com
After reading all the comments *duh, should have done that before ordering*, I found that Moleskine A5 hardcover doesn't fit the cover and have written an email with a customization request. Let's see how it goes.

No answer from anybody for a week and my cover is already shipped. Awesome.
To anybody, who will join the drop: Join it only if you're 100% okay that in a case of any issue you will not get any support.

Kuzzmi,
Apologies for the delayed reply here. We're a small family shop and right around the time of this last drop we welcomed a new baby, while we've been able to keep up with production we've been away from the massdrop boards and are just now getting caught back up. We aren't able to customize products ordered on massdrop beyond the options included in the drop, but we do have several options for how we might remedy this. If you wouldn't mind sending another message to service@allegorygoods.com I'd like to review this with you and see how we can help.

Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
We are currently working towards a new update system to reduce confusion in the Discussion and in the interim, all future updates on this drop will be sent directly by e-mail. Please verify your email address is correct under your settings so that you receive the latest updates for the group. You can change your settings here: https://www.massdrop.com/settings/user_info
To read more about the new updates please go here: dro.ps/updates If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
will it fit a A5 Clairfontaine notebook - thick, but paper cover?
Young
This cover only fits the rhodia A5 webnotebook, but we do have custom services that could modify the design to fit a similar notebook of your choice. Shoot us an email at service@allegorygoods.com for details.
If i ordered this and the pen wrap, would it be possible to combine postage? (I am international)
wombat
@wombat I doubt that Massdrop can make this work because of how they set-up shipping for drops, but @elimelendez will be able to answer that definitively for you. Looking forward to making your pen wrap and webbie cover! :) -Jess
wombat
I'm interested in the answer to that question... I pay international shipping as well and would like to combine the two products, did they make it possible for you?
Anyone know how this works with the Hobonichi cousin and other A5 notebooks?

For what it's worth, our rates for customization of simply changing the dimensions aren't too steep.
AllegoryGoods
How much would it be to customize the cover to fit the Hobonichi Techo Cousin (dimensions: 8.3" x 5.9" x 0.7")? Thanks!
Curious if the only option for the engraving is at the top and curious what the character limit is on the two lines of text? Thank you!
ladylolindrath
As far as placement, we are limited to that spot, but the character limit is flexible. We recommend you submit your ideal engraving and if we're not able to make it work we'll contact you with some options.
Thanks! Chad
AllegoryGoods
Thanks!
Would this fit a Moleskine large hardcover notebook?
Postpwned
I do not believe this cover would fit the Moleskine large hardcover notebook. I have one of these covers, and it fits my Rhodia Webbie perfectly. There seems to be some flexibility in which notebooks these covers fit; some report they fit certain notebooks while others say it does not.
As a natural product, there may be some difference in how the leather stretches, or some difference in the leather cutting. (Perhaps cut on a Monday morning while hungover from Sunday's football game? ;)) If I understand their process, it sounds as if the leather is hand cut rather than stamped cut with a die.
I work an obscene amount of Obenauf's leather protector into my Allegory covers. The leather is very soft, and does tend to scratch easily, but I like how my covers are developing character of their own. I am glad that I got lighter colored covers, as I believe the darker covers might not reflect some of the character mine display.
I am quite pleased with my Allegory covers. I did not ask for engraving or any special flourishes. Other than some misunderstanding about shipping on my part, I am quite happy with my covers.
The folks at Allegory watch the comments section and are active here. I know they do custom work as well, which might be an option for your large Moleskine notebook.
Postpwned
This one won't but as Sallen mentioned (thank Sallen for the kind words!) we could work up a custom version for you. Shoot us an email at service@allegorygoods.com to discuss

I got the notebook. When is Allegory going to ship the covers?

I called them, should be shipping by today. Thanks for comment.

Hey guys. The covers shipped yesterday afternoon. :) Enjoy!
Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendors for the Allegory Webnotebook Cover - Massdrop Exclusive and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
For people that ordered the optional webnotebook add-on, as soon as the group’s bulk order containing these notebooks is ready, it will be shipped to our warehouse in New Jersey where we will broken down into individual orders and shipped out to the group members.
The Allegory webnotebook covers will be readied for individual shipment at the vendors location and will be shipped directly to you. Group members will be able to find tracking numbers for both shipments in their transaction page once that part of the shipment is on the way.
Rest assured that we we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 11/10.
I'm in on this one, but if it doesn't happen, I'd be VERY happy with the A4.
You know when they say, "vegetable tanned leather" .... I wonder what vegetable(s). Tomatoes, with a hint of chilly and in broccoli sauce would be good ....

Classic it-man comment haha
Does anyone know if these covers will fit all standard A5 notebooks. For example, I use Midori MD notebooks and they are slightly wider than the Rhodia Webnotebook. (about an 1/8").

@sallen And thank you for your thoughtful response. :) I've followed-up with the customers you referenced with unaddressed issues. They were definitely NOT buried, I just somehow missed their comments. So again, thank you for bringing that to my attention. Our partnership with Massdrop has been transformational for our business. You guys are great customers who participate in the creation and refinement of products. As a Kickstarter-born company, that's what we love. Keep the feedback coming. :)
-Jess
What about it the Hobonichi Techo Cousin? It's A5. What about the spine? Thanks.

I just opened up my shipment and my saddle cover has some dark splotches of black along the buckle and on the back corner. Is that normal?
It seems like the finishing is a bit off. :(

Hi @AllegoryGoods and @Liz I hadn't been able to ship my package because I was out of town. I just took a look at some of the things @AllegoryGoods said, and was able to get it so that the splotch is mostly gone. I'll add photos later so that people who are interested in the next drop can see what it's like.
I feel like it would be a waste to return it now, given that I've basically been able to make it look okay; could I roll back on the return? I'll also ping support, but I wanted it on the forum so people could see.
thanks :)
Kongaloosh
Hey @Kongaloosh. So glad to hear you were able to sort out the issue. If you change your mind about the markings at any point in the future. Please do reach out to us. No need to take the extra step of going through Massdrop customer service. We can take care of it for you on our end. :) Thanks! Jess
Received mine earlier this week. Great build work. It fits the Rhodia A5 perfectly great and is very snug.
As previously noted; It's also a loose (approx 1cm radius gap on the spine bend), but workable fit for an equivalent Hardcover Moleskine.
This drop might just be the last straw for me with Massdrop. The long waits alone are almost enough to make me pay the slightly higher prices on various web stores for most of the products available here. On my last drop I received a defective Lamy pen after a long wait and had to return it. I finally received my webnotebook cover, and it was someone else's - incorrect engraving, and an easy mistake to avoid considering they sent a German (?) - engraved cover to a US address. After a week I'd received only one "we'll look into it" email, but at least one marketing email per day. I returned the cover yesterday - at this point I'm not willing to wait another month or two for a solution - just give me my money back.

Hey @Deckard47, I'm sorry to hear that you received the wrong cover. I've flagged this to our Community Support team on my end, so you should hear back soon.
Deckard47
@Deckard47 I'm very sorry for our mistake shipping you the incorrect cover. This one was completely on us as we dropship to all you guys from our shop. I can't speak for the long wait for other drops you've participated in, but for our drops we make each batch to order. So, once the drop closes we need a couple weeks to make and ship all the pieces. For handcrafted pieces like ours a little extra time on our part means a higher quality piece in your hands. :) It's hard to tell from screen names on the boards if your issue has been addressed or not because we work in actual names and emails with service issues. :) If it hasn't though, please be sure to send me a message at service@allegorygoods.com and I will take care of it with you right away.

Individual packages have started to ship! The vendor confirmed earlier that majority of the group's order has been sent out with the rest scheduled for pickup shortly. Once your package is scanned into the courier's system an email will be sent with shipping confirmation and tracking info.
Expect another update from us on 8/24 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (https://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
The vendor is currently working on preparing the shipment for the webnotebook covers. Based on current estimates these should be shipping early next week. As soon each order ships each member will receive an email with tracking.
People who ordered the optional webnotebook add on should have already received an email with the tracking for this item.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 8/18 or sooner if something comes up.

I presume that you mean that an update will arrive on Aug 13 rather than May 13...
TimParris
@TimParris Yes! Sorry about that!
How/when does one submit the text one wants engraved ( for those who have paid for engraving) .? Thanks

To my email or here on Massdrop? Thwnks

When I was signed for the Pen Wrap, I got the message by email, but you will also see in the discussion as well. From what I remember the last time, the email may have come out the next day. In any sense, we have not yet seen a post in the discussion that the drop has ended and that usually does appear before the personalization emails.
By the way, I would suggest that you read the note on the description about the engraving as it does explain this. The drop only ended today... they may be still trying to set up the Google Form.
if this was just 1cm more in width, it would fit the Nanami Seven Seas A5 perfectly.. the current size can still hold the Nanami, but it doesn't look flushed.

I fold my elastic strap around the rear cover - it tucks right into the back flap of the leather cover.
What does one do with the elastic closure piece on the Rhodia webnotebook if you're sticking the whole thing into a cover?
