what ? in france they cost like 3€ a piece in stores, am I missing something ?
Wow. $24 USD for shipping to Canada. No thanks. After conversion it would be the same price or cheaper for me to just buy them from the store here...
I just ordered 6 black no. 18 dot grid for $43.96 with 6-12 Business Days shipping to the US from penworld.eu. I would have paid $50.99 here for the privilege of waiting a month for delivery.

How was your experience with penworld.eu?
Estimated ship date was March 6th, any word? Or perhaps i missed something
US$28 for shipping to Singapore? It'd better be hand delivered by a butler in a private jet. That's just insane... very disappointing MD!

Wow - NOT a great deal! These pads are $8.97 at ipenstore ( http://www.ipenstore.com/rhodia-dot-pad-8-1-4-x-11-3-4/), so six pads would be $53.82 and free shipping, since the order would be over $50.
Even by MD's own description, this is decidedly not a great deal. MD states that MRSP is $54 ($9/pad) and touts its price as $42, which is actually $53 when you include MD's exorbitant $9 shipping charge. So you save a dollar for the dubious privilege of waiting weeks, instead of days, to receive your order.
I acknowledge that there are some genuinely good deals at MD - I've joined five drops in the last couple of months.
But, as usual, MD omits its shipping charges from its pricing on the product description page. It gets tedious to keep asking MD to be honest and transparent with us - their own customers - by including the actual cost, including shipping, on the product description page. But, if MD had had included it there, even they would have recognized that it's ludicrous to expect their customers to go through the uncertainty and delay of an MD purchase to save just one buck.
Well. it's ludicrous unless you're making a hefty profit on the outrageous shipping fee.

I do not disagree, but clicking a button is far from tedious. Also, shipping does cost money, real money. Cheap rates can only be negotiated if a company has a ton of volume (like Amazon). Otherwise, most firms are paying like 90% of list rates. Look that up. They are basically in line with what Mass Drop charges.

I'm not complaining about their shipping costs, in themselves; I'm irritated that MD doesn't simply provide the full price informationon the description page. And, when pertinent, I'll point out when the same product is available from a different source , at virtually the same price, without the uncertainty and long delay of a drop. We all understand that MD re-ships all the products they bought in bulk. So, before offering a product, they should clearly give more thought to whether their shipping costs makes their resulting price point, including shipping, competitive (much less a bargain) when compared with other easily accessible sources.
Admittedly, clicking a button is not tedious compared to genuinely laborious drudgery. But it is tedious to be compelled to do something completely unnecessary, especially when it would take no effort for MD could provide us - their own customers - with the full cost information on the description page. Having to click through to the join drop page is also tedious because MD takes that as permission to send you multiple pestering emails asking if you're still interested in the drop. So, first they make it unnecessarily inconvenient for me to get the full price of the item, then they use this inconvenience that they created as an excuse for cluttering my inbox intrusive marketing. This not good good customer service - it's obnoxious.
wow, great deal, these are $13 each plus $9 to ship 6 of them from my normal retailer. snapped this one up quick!!!!! and you guys, WHERE are we finding the MD shipping charges, I feel mentally incompetent in looking for shipping charges.........

You have to click on join drop in order for the shipping charges to show up. That way you 'register' your interest in the item and Massdrop can then send you follow up spam emails about the items.
$33 shipping for me. No thank you.
Wait a minute, $48 plus $9 shipping for a 6 pack of NOTEBOOKS? Surely that boarders on the absurd. If you want the best paper quality, just spend $5 on a sketch book at your local art supply store. At least the paper is better than that bilge they put in Moleskines.
I swear by Campus notebooks which I found out about in Japan. Cheap and great quality paper which is smooth as silk with fountain pens. Made in Japan. They're pricier here than in Japan, but it's still a good deal compared with this drop. https://www.amazon.com/Kokuyo-Campus-Notebook-Semi-9-8/dp/B000I41D36/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1494695645&sr=8-3&keywords=campus+notebooks
Dunno why MD even posts "deals" like these.

Rhodia / clairefontaine paper is definitely not on the level of moleskine. If you use a fountain pen, then I am surprised you haven't tried a rhodia pad yet; they are pretty standard issue for peeps with fountain pens.
$9.00 shipping for notebooks? Seriously, who is in charge of pricing over there? Are you even trying to make a sale? I can go to a number of other retailers and get a better price with fast shipping for significantly less.
$9 to ship 6 little notebooks!?!? Are you serious Massdrop???
so basically save just a few dollars short of msrp in addition to a long wait for ship and delivery?
no thanks.
why would 71 people spend $41.99 usd on 6 notepads?

paper quality
what? 80gsm is generally considered as pretty high for writing paper... and the paper weight isn't the only telling factor of the paper's quality

$9 shipping? That's a bit excessive for 6 notebooks in the US, no? Sadly, gotta pass on this one., especially with the mix being predetermined. Bummer.

$32 shipping to Canada. For 6 notepads. Massdrop shipping rates are unbelievable.

The group's bulk order arrived earlier to our warehouse in New Jersey and many of the individual packages have already shipped back out. However, upon taking inventory of everything received, our team was made aware of a backorder affecting a small handful of units. Rest assured, we've reached back out to the vendor to resolve this hiccup and expect to have the remaining units in our warehouse shortly.

Are these notepads suitable for Calligraphy practice? Will the ink bleed into the paper?
so 51/6=8.5 per notebook+tax and a long shipping time. The only real use of this drop is for the dot pads so you can write letters because companies like black and red don't make dot pads. Even then utrechtart sells them for 7.20 w/ free shipping after $45 so you can get them there for a little less +another book +less shipping time(I would assume).
I also prefer the Webbies and the bound notepads which lay flat better than staple or spiral bound. I am slowly phasing out all of my heapo-cheapo, US government-issue, metal, top spiral bound notepads. I particularly hate metal spiral bound. The metal spirals tend to deform after a while and the ends tend to stick out snagging on items and poking holes in things. I am not particularly enamored with the top stabled either, even though I love Rhodia paper. Of the top stabled notepads, the most useful to me are the three-hole punched. I can rip the sheets out, put paper assholes reinforcing the holes, and stick the page in one of my various binders.

And I like the bound better than either stapled or spiral. e.g. Webbie notebook. Lays flat.
Why does so many people like staplebounds ? Here they are never used as they use more space and are less practical than spiral ones. As i know, the vote was for student friendly paper, this isnt student friendly

As a general rule I prefer staple over spiral since spirals don't stack as flat in a bag or on a desk. I haven't tried Rhodia's spiral so maybe they're different. I could see why someone may prefer a spiral notebook when using a single notebook for one class or project but in those cases I would just use a notebook without perforated pages. When I finish taking notes on a notepad page I always rip the page out and file it. That being said, I'm not a huge fan of the Rhodia staple bound pad. The backing is too soft and the cover doesn't fold over well which makes ripping out a page hard. I like Rhodia paper but I prefer a standard legal pad style.

As someone who owns the staplebound, spiral, and clairefontaine spiral, I can probably answer this.
The rhodia spiral has a solid black plastic spiral that, while durable, in the last three months in my backpack has caught on a few things and bent the spirals a bit. This was much more of a hassle than I expected, but so far the damage isn't extensive. I'm hoping they do not fall apart in the next few months of school as that would be a serious hassle.
The clairefontaine spiral, Rhodias other brand I guess(?), has strong metal spirals. These are better. They might still get caught on things, but they just handle that shit like a boss. If you get a spiral from this company, I recommend the clairefontaine brand. I just wish they had graph paper spirals, as those are only available through Rhodia.
