Hi everyone-

 

I've been looking everywhere for a decently priced notepad that's similar to the ones I always used in France. (Currently in DC)

 

When I was there my everyday paper was the Clairefontaine french-ruled, perforated tear-out page **paper pad, no spiral bound**

 

Is there a way to find these in stores in the US? Online without spending an arm and a leg?

 

I found a similar notepad by Rhodia, but can only find it in packs of 3. It may be silly, but I'm just looking to get one!

 

 

Any suggestions would be awesome! 

Thank you!

Are the regular Rhodia notepads french-ruled? I haven't been able to tell online

You've done well. I've only been able to find French ruled in spiral bound at Goulet Pens.
Where did you find the pads?

https://www.amazon.c...rds=french rule

 

...is the only french ruled paper I've seen on Amazon (or elsewhere) that's not spiral bound.  Alternately, you can print your own - there are templates out there.

Are you looking for this ?

you can find them on Amazon.fr but I think the shipping cost is ... expensive ...

(I think that Rhodia blocs are quite of the same quality, as far I could test ...)

One pen roll, two pen rolls, three pen rolls ... So many pen rolls ! Do you want one ?
my tiny shop is open  and you can have a closer look on my website to see my cotton (and sometimes silk) OOAK penrolls.

I've searched myself and followed every link given here. None of them are for perforated tear out pads of French ruled paper that LamyLamyLamy is looking for.
I guess you have to go to France to get it. Might be worth a trip.
Nothing better than Paris, a bottle of Champagne and a hot blonde.

You can order them online from Goulet Pens in the US. I have bought from them multiple times.

What do you call "French ruled" paper, then ?

 

What we use in France is in fact called "Séyès" and that's what I showed.

The dimensions of tear out pads are 21 x  32, I tried on amazon.com  but I could not find them ...

 

I think you can find many templates on the web using the keyword "Séyès", then ...

Check out -http://www.shopwritersbloc.com/ as they have a reasonable range of "french rule" paper including individual sheets at good prices (imo). Have heard good things about them and like that they are not one of "the big dealers"!

 

I like using the French rule paper for calligraphy practice as well notebook stuff.

 

Best results...

If it's in the international catalogue, Goulet can order in batches. I send them an email saying what I want and they quote me a price. Generally blocks of 10-20. Shopwritersbloc is my alternate.

Thanks Ghost. I didn't think Goulet would offer that service. Good to know.
My opinion of Goulet Pens just keeps rising.
