300 Circa Full Page Ruled Refill Sheets
Good Overall Note-taking Paper
I love the Circa system, and this paper does a good job for basic note-taking--nice design and a good weight. However, I would echo previous reviews in saying that it would be wonderful to have this, as well as the grid design, available in the Rhodia paper, which is absolutely my favorite and is very smooth and durable.

Love the quality
I am new to Circa products and I just fell in love with the functionality and the quality of the products. I am a fan of the full-page ruled paper because I am an avid note taker.
I would love to see the full ruled paper offered in colors like the annotated ruled sheets.

Circa VS. Competitors
Since the new paper has been available I have been much more pleased with the Levenger paper. It is much more conducive to writing with bottled ink and a fountain pen than the previous version. However, I noticed one of the major chain office supply stores has their own version of circa so I thought of trying their cheaper products. Originally I was shocked and thought it was a better buy. The paper held ink well and was good to write on. But now that I have had both brands of paper in my notebooks I have realized a quality that is imperative for this type of notebook and Levenger's product is far superior than the other brands.
Levenger's paper is much sturdier around the punched area and therefore holds up much, much better. The importance of this quality doesn't need much explaining but in short you can remove your pages many times with Levenger's without worry of it not holding up and staying in the notebook. The other companies paper after only a couple of position adjustments is all but useless.
For this one quality it is well worth the extra few dollars to invest in Levenger's paper instead of trying to save a buck and go with the less expensive brand.
One of the other reviewers commented about the paper being a bit rough, I can agree with that. Although I have not had any problems with my pens getting clogged with fibers from the paper. I also hardly ever write on the back side of a page. I could offer one solution if this is a problem for others. Try the Circa Rhodia paper. It is much smoother and a real joy to write on. Unfortunately it is only offered in annotation style pages but for those who like that set up it is the best product available that I am aware of.

I just received my order of fully lined and annotation paper (one of each). I was dismayed to find that white is now gray. My older paper is a bright white. The new stuff is grayer, and somewhat larger, making a notebook with pages of each sort look ragged at the edges. The newer paper is coarser and doesn't accept wet ink as well. I love the circa concept, and have several notebooks. I'm disappointed that it's not going to be as much fun writing on the new paper.

Just One Problem
I like the idea of the Circa system. I use one for my personal journal. My one big gripe has been with the quality of the paper. I write with a fountain pen. The front side of the paper seems to write fairly well but the back of the page does not have the same quality of finish. My extra fine nib pen clogs up when writing on the back but works okay on the front. I have a medium nib pen that works most of the time on the back but even it acts up some of the time on the back.
I am hoping that this new 90 gsm paper will help get rid of these problems. Otherwise, a pretty good product.

Bring back the Compact Size !
I love all styles of the Circa, and use this full page ruled paper most often in each size. Good feel to the paper, thick enough to write on both sides without bleed through, etc. By FAR the most useful size for me is the Compact. I have a shelf full of the refills stock piled, but am always worried I'll run out. PLEASE don't get rid of Compact full page ruled refills !!!!

Circa changed my life!
I've "sold" so many Circa notebooks to friends and colleagues I should get a commission.

Everybody loves it
This is the best notebook for shopping or taking notes on the run. Folding the cover over makes a hard writing surface, the pages move easily because it's Circa, a pen loop holds my writing instrument so I always know where it is, and best of all, this whole kit fits in my purse, taking up seemingly no space. WINNER!

Good quality paper and the lines go the whole width of the page. Great for taking notes!

These pages are great. I love the flexibility of being able to move pages around. I also love that you can use the front and the back without any ackward writing. The binder folds flat and works great with these pages.
