Where's the price?
To negotiate the best possible price for our members, we must agree to hide our prices externally.



Just check Penchalet and you can get four spiral bound, random color, for the same price. Unfortunately, they don't carry the clothbound version.
Shipping will cost more than the drop. How that is the case for 4 notebooks is beyond me.
It's cheaper for me to buy this bundle at Anderson Pens. Sorry Massdrop.

Link?
By the way, I would just add that anything Clairefontaine makes is my favorite paper, hands-down! There isn't a (fountain) pen that won't write better on it, or an ink that won't look better on it. If you are a paper junkie, this is China White (if you catch my drift...)
Shipping to Canada $27.75. That is more than the lowest price on the drop. Really Massdrop?

How on Earth???.... It's cheaper to ship to the Netherlands!
Canit
Well I suppose you could always buy it in Canada in the first place, eh? You know, might save you a few Loonies on shipping, eh?!

@Liz Out of curiosity, what is that delicious blue ink shown in the writing sample?
writerstephen
I believe it's Edelstein Topaz.
Actually, if you look at the sizes and binding options, Goulet is NOT cheaper. Plus there is still shipping. You save a tiny bit of money. In my opinion, worth the wait since they're something I use regularly.

$38.54 for me to get through Goulet.
Yep, same set up at Goulet costs the same and you don't have to wait longer. Come on Massdrop, once upon a time it was about getting deals by bulk purchases. Now most of the time you're just like any other online store except with longer mailing times.
$9 S/H? Come on people!
Shocked at the $9 shipping cost--puts it much closer to the "41.99" MSRP, which I never pay. Skipping this one...
Yeah you can a better deals on these through amazon.. http://amzn.to/2waJ0Q5 especially if you have prime
What I don't like about ClaireFontaine's version of French-ruled notebooks is how bright the purple lines are. They are very distracting. I have other French-ruled notebooks, such as by Super Conquerant, and those have less "in your face" lining.
Photoelectric
Thanks for your feedback! We'll definitely have to take a look at some other brands, including the one you mentioned.
Why are these so expensive in the U.S.? Clairefontaine Notebooks are like 3€ in Germany.
teschi
Because we aren't in Germany or any other part of Europe where it'd be cheaper to purchase. Not sure what the Euro to Dollar exchange rate is, but $7 doesn't seem unreasonable if you want a European product like this.
Are the clothbound notebooks perfect bound or sewn in signatures?
Technatrix
The clothbound (96 sheet) model is $9.50 @Goulet. So, yeah, comes out about the same as this drop. If you haven't tried the clothbounds, I'd encourage it. So much more paper!
@elimelendez & @XiK Is there any way to select no wirebound/only clothbound notebooks? The clothbound ones seem perfect for lab notebooks, but the wirebounds are literally unusable at work.
mgrinshpon
Sorry, this drop is structured only to offer both. Thanks for your feedback though! We can work on changing up the options for the next drop.
mgrinshpon
Not only cannot lab notebooks be wirebound, but they cannot be perfect bound. So I ask again, are these sewn in signatures, like the Kokuyo research lab notebooks? Can you bend up the top or bottom corner of a page on its gutter side? Are there visible threads in the gutter of the center pages of each signature?
I'd love to see this drop but with regular lined paper
For Canadians who don't want to pay that ridiculous shipping, Wonderpens has a number of Seyes-ruled options available - https://www.wonderpens.ca/SearchResults.asp?Search=seyes&Submit=

If you want to know the "real" price for these notebooks in France (where I live)...you can buy them in any store for 3.85 euro or about $4.00 each. They DO have very nice paper that is certainly fountain pen friendly. I use them for my work all the time and really love them. When the French retail price (including 20% VAT) is around $4, 4X$4=$16. I think the listed MSRP price of $41.99 is a bit inflated, don't you think? I could buy 10 notebooks for the listed MSRP!

They are listing the MSRP as $12 more than it actually is. I've bought a fair bit of stuff from massdrop, but inflating the msrp is just wrong.
I'm pretty sure I could buy all of that in France for something less than €10. I did not expect a difference that big.
Possibly cheaper on Goulet right now (depending on where they're being shipped to). Margin seems to be +/-$2 to continental USA.
I sent all of my notebooks back for exchange and they only sent 2 back? I would rather have 4 slightly smaller notebooks than 2 and I feel like I pretty much just got ripped off
All four were A5 instead of A4-- not just the two wire bound.
With the help of the community it has come to our attention that members have been receiving the Clairefontaine wirebound A5 notebook instead of the A4. We have been in close contact with the vendor to find the source of the issue and come up with a solution.
They have let us know that an error in their inventory system resulted in them shipping the wrong notebooks to our warehouse.
In an effort to make up for the inconvenience we have decided to give members affected a $5 partial refund.
We understand that this option might be undesirable for some members. People who are still interested in getting the wirebound A4 notebook will have the opportunity to ship back the A5 notebook in exchange for the correct item. People interested in this should contact our support team (https://www.massdrop.com/support). They will be happy to provide these members with a label and facilitate the shipping.
Members who are interested in exchanging their notebooks for the A4 should reach out to our support team before August 4th at 5 pm Pacific Time. People who don't reach out will receive an automatic partial refund. This will be applied to your payment method within 1-3 business days after.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 8/5 or sooner if something comes up.
I've also received the wrong size...
It says A4 notebooks but I received A5. Anyone else?

@Stirhoss Thanks for flagging this issue to us!
