I use the unruled clothbound version every day. I'd be delighted to buy the black or blue in bulk. Unfortunately, I have zero interest in wirebound or ruled notebooks.
As a frenchman who always had clairfontaine's notebooks, it's funny to see how fancy and overpriced their products are in the states... Nevertheless, unparallel smothness of the paper...
$21 shipping to Turkey is a deal breaker for me. I'd instabuy if shipping was cheaper.
Hi guys. Wondering whether or not ink will bleed though onto the sheets underneath? I see that Rhodia states that their brand does not bleed though. Thanks in advance.

It is *possible* to make any paper bleed. I use fountain pens, and it is highly uncommon for me to manage to bleed through Clairefontaine paper, however, with enough ink, you can make any paper bleed.
Rhodia paper is 80 gsm most of the time, while this and most Clairefontaine is 90 gsm, which is a touch thicker. I find the process they use for Rhodia makes it more ink resistant despite being thinner, but, of course, they have a variety of products under both brands.
Just want to confirm that the spiral-bound books definitely have 96 sheets. I've only ever seen them with 60 sheets at other vendors.
Can anyone tell if these have the perforations for page removal?
HomicidalSif
They don't. However the bounded ones are just bounded by glue so you can easily remove the sheet without ripping the paper but the spiral one you are SOL.

Thank you, that is exactly what I wanted to know.
$24 dollars usd to ship to Canada.... absolutely unreal.
Clairefontaine is my favorite paper. If you're a fountain pen user and you haven't yet tried this stuff--you should!
Missed again!! Does anyone know what this latest drop price was? And I also agree - can A4 be an option next go round? Thx.
How much is the shipping ? Why is it so difficult to find the shipping price on a lot of these drops it’s a factor to make a decision to buy it or not?

Thanks that was a concern. eBay phobia.
Reasonable shipping for the four books but it makes the deal kind of unattractive overall for me.
If this was in A4, I'd buy a bunch!
French rule is awesome. I went through a few of the A4's that Goulet Pens were selling (at $5 a piece couldn't resist, even if it's a lower sheet count) and going back to regular college rule afterwards felt ... unrefined.
They actually have very strict rules on how you are supposed to utilize these, how far the letters should extend up and down, etc. etc.
I ignored all that and made up my own style, enjoying the giant margins and how easy it was to mix diagrams and regular writing with the help of this peculiar grid.
With that said : I don't like the forced mix. I think it would serve us better if we could order 4 of the same (although I suspect the vendor is trying to unload the clothbound books, hence this "feature" )

As a 'lefty' I agree. Give me spiral or give me loose leaf!

The $5.50 price Goulet charges is for 50 sheet notebooks. If I'm reading this drop correctly, Massdrop is offering 96 sheet notebooks. That's almost twice the paper for only a few dollars more.
The closest thing Goulet sells to what's being offered here are these, available for $9.50 and $9.00 respectively:

So, with this Massdrop offer you're basically getting one notebook for free when compared to Goulet's price.
I can get 4 of the same sizes of my choosing of covers for $22 and have them next week. Why would I join this drop and wait a month and pay more money?

Yes, I've seen them there and elsewhere, but nothing close to the price point that Ezedyseldest claimed. I suspect that $22 number may have been due to bad typing -- or bad eyesight. From what I see, MD's price on these is reasonably competitive.
Ezedyseldest
Starting to figure this out myself. At least it was only roughly $30.00,
Haha the French omelette croissant notebook :) I love this brand ! :3
Did the issue with some receiving A4 size notebooks ever get resolved? I'd like to join this drop...
stix_clgi
Yes, we have taken steps to ensure the right size is ordered this time around.

Okay, thank you for the response!
@LauraB I would go to the help center and fill out a support ticket. I did that and got a quick response.
katemo
Thanks - I will try.
katemo
Well I am still waiting on my replacement. Each time I contact support they say it is in process, or waiting on vendor, or it is shipping...all over the map on responses and yet I still do not have the correct notebooks.
Last time I will order
Any updates/corrections. This was not what was ordered, not what I wanted. No updates and support has not reached out. Been a week - customer service is LACKING greatly.
From the description: "Note: This drop includes two A5 wirebound notebooks and two A5 clothbound notebooks, with assorted cover colors." I received 2 A4 wire bound and 2 A5 clothbound notebooks. My packing slip says they are both A5 sizes. I am truly disappointed that I did not get the items I actually ordered and paid for.
ReneeNicole
Sorry for this error @ReneeNicole. We're looking into what exactly happened here, and Support will be reaching out to all those affected so stay tuned.
Received my order today and I must say I am disappointed. The pictures and descriptions are all A4 sizes - yet what I received was wire bound A4 and cloth bound A5. If you cant trust the description - I will not be ordering from Massdrop again.

I submitted this to support but thought I would share here also.
Just received order and disappointed to find 2 A5 cloth bound and (apparently) 2 A4 wire bound (49 sheets).
The photo isn't great but if you zoom on, you'll see the packing slip says they're all A5! Did this happen to everyone or just me?
I understand the A4 wire bound notebooks actually cost less than the A5, for some reason.

I was very disappointed last time I bought blank Clairfontaine cloth-bounds, as they no longer lie flat. They used to be sewn signatures but are now stapled through or something like that. Buyer be warned. They have superb paper, but bindings matter!
We need the 8 1/2 x 11 ones with regular ruled paper. I would gobble those up for school.
I'm disappointed in that these now cost more than the A4notebook. How can that be? Follow advice from others and do a bundle ofA5 ccloth boundat a competitive price. This is my favorite paper but I still can't join this drop
