I'm looking for a good quality stationery retailer based in Canada that offers online ordering of their product. Do any of you have a recommendation? Thanks!

Stylus Fine Pens in Edmonton and Papeterie Nota Bene in Montreal are the two that spring to mind, both with many supporters here on FPN. I haven't ordered online from either of them, but Stylus is my local stationer, and it's a great little shop with a fantastic selection.

Ditto. The people who work at Stylus are also very knowledgeable and very happy to help - there's no such thing as a silly question at that store! Their prices are quite reasonable as well.

I found some very good prices on Amazon.ca for Rhodia & Moleskine products, btw.

That's a good idea - will have to check out Amazon, see what they have.

Yes, the best prices on Rhodia that I've seen in CAN stores, and better Moleskine prices than most equivalent Chapters stuff. Plus shiping is free over $25. I know it's not a fancy stationary store, but prices are excellent....

Where are you finding the Rhodia stuff? Amazon.ca's only returning Moleskine for me and I can't find Rhodia anywhere....

Ooh, thanks! Just found it - that's definitely cheaper than at the stores I've found the webnotebook at. A pity they don't sell Rhodia's other products on Amazon, though.

Looks like we're both on here at the same time - haha.

No worries! I know what that's like, as I have an iphone. :P

You can also try Laywine's in Toronto, but they do mail-order by request, not a formal online store.

If you wish to save, wait for the 20%-off sale at the previously mentioned Papeterie Nota-Bene in Montreal. The owner Russell really knows his stuff. Give him a call through the 1-800 number because I think the sale comes this spring...

I should also add that Laywine's has a store-wide sale every year for the entire duration of May. Anywhere from 20-80% off.

No idea if the sale prices apply to the mail-order side of the business, but I can't see why they wouldn't. Give Peter a call and ask!

I've ordered from stylo.ca, they have really good customer service and the packaged shipped to me (in Mississauga) quite earlier than I expected!

Check out Stylus Fine Pens & Desk Accessories in Edmonton AB. 

Personally, I've always phoned in my order, but they may have an on-line shopping option.  I don't know.  

Stylus is my regular source for the Japanese APICA CD11 (A5 size) notebooks that I use for journals.  Real nice folks.  No sales tax in Alberta, "yet".

Plus they have free shipping after 50$

Wonder pens has a flat fee which is great too!
