Levenger And Rhodia Parted Ways And I'm Not Happy



Recommended Posts

So, apparently, "some time ago" Levenger stopped making Rhodia refills for their Circa noteobooks.

 

Okay. Before I plunk down $30 on refills, is the paper they are using now tolerable? The young lady with the drawl ten times more sugary than mine said it was smoother than rhodia but a little thainer (thinner).

 

Just wondering if I'd be better off finding my own paper and punching it.

I have a fair amount of the Rhodia Levenger paper. To me it's not as smooth as regular Rhodia, so I don't use it much. I have no idea what the regular Levenger papers are like. This might be a good place to ask if anyone has experience with the Staples ARC papers as well.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Thanks for the input. I've tried the Staples ARC and the Office Depot Tul. Both are good enough for "throw away" writing, i.e. rough drafts and such, but I'd rather not use them in my journal. I'll be using this as sort of a mash-up of Circa Agenda and Bullet Journal so I'd like the quality of Rhodia. I guess I'll get the Levenger paper and hope for the best. Current sale will, at least, cover shipping.

I've found that the fountain pen friendliness of their journals, notebooks and note cards has changed through the years from order to order. I don't find them consistant. I like many of their other products, but don't trust their paper.

Thank, much. I won't hold my breath. If it doesn't work out, I'll figure out something else and reserve the Circa paper for less strenuous work. Not sure what I would use in its stead but...

I wish that Levenger had given people a heads-up that they were discontinuing the only good FP paper for their Circa notebooks. I don't mind printing my own lines on 8.5x11" AA paper, but losing the smaller sizes is a pain.

Hi Jeffery!

 

For sure. Trying to get that cut in local shops is not cheap and doing it yourself is very time consuming.

That is the problem with levenger paper products. I've been buying from them for close to 30 years. It never seems to change. You buy a journal, then maybe a leather cover for it, and all the matching 'do dads' to go with it. Now you're committed. Then you go to order refills, or new note cards, and it's not the same quality.

I love their true writer pens, the leather products are top quality. In general they do a lot right. They just need to fire the paper guy and get someone who understands fountain pens.

Would be nice if they read FPN..lol..

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
