I love all the circa products. BUT... the cover pages, i.e. Rhodia or the new Behance line are all awesome, except for the fact that within 24 hours the color peels off. The first time it happened Levenger graciously replaced but when I bought the new Behance junior book, literally in less than 24 hours the color started to wear off -- I had to go to Staples and buy contact paper sheets to cover it. and will have to do it for every cover I buy going forward. Why can't they make them with sufficient protection? something happens btwn the plastic cover and the paper cover.. very frustrating bc you can't buy just the paper cover sheet.. see the photo

...instead I got an orange piece of paper with clear plastic covers...which started to crease inside of a week from being moved around when I opened and closed the notebook. I wanted a hard orange plastic cover.I am very sad about this as I have owned Levenger items for decades and they still look like new. Have to say, they REALLY MISSED THE MARK WITH THIS ONE. Don't buy into the Rhodia deal as there are other circas on the site that will last longer.This experience has really made me concerned about purchasing the customer/creative looking covers as I can't afford to spend another $30 on flimsy paper.:(

This was my first time trying the Circa notebooks and I love it! I love the feel of the Rhodia paper and to have it in Circa allows me to get a refill whenever I want.Please bring back the Rhodia mouse pads.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this--- and will also buy for colleague/girlfriend. We are already fighting to use this-- so now we can both have our own. Easy to customize-- and I will definitely buy the hole puncher to add blank paper bc I am an artist/graphic designer
Classy and Practical
from The Sea Ranch, CA
I have many notebooks that I use for ongoing classes, lectures and teachings. They need to be able to fit into a large purse (3 ring notebooks do not!). I had been stumped before the circa system. I have the benefits of a spiral notebook as well as the versatility of a 3 ring binder. Adding to that the extra large plastic covers hold handout sheets keeping them protected. My small complaint is that as I turned the pages back while taking notes they sometimes pulled out. They were easy to replace and I think with some practice I can mitigate that happening. I am looking forward to expanding my use of the entire circa system. I great find indeed.

The product description clearly states that the notebook has “durable translucent covers with Rhodia orange cover sheet”.

Perfect for Depositions, Hearings & Trials
from Portland, ME
The Circa Rhodia Annotation Ruled Notebook is perfect for note taking at depositions, hearings, and trials ... and, it holds important written materials for easy access. I bought a number of the Rhodia notebooks, and added some accessories to a few of the notebooks, which increased their utility enormously.
My favorite binder
from Berkeley ca
This binder is the perfect size; I carry 2 in my brief case covering multiple subjects.
As a long time customer of Levenger, I thought this would be up to their usual standards, but was disappointed. The design was great, but the paper did not stand up to my fountain pen, had almost constant bleed through. I wanted to try the Circa line, and the idea is a good one, but I find I'm back to looking for something else.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review of our Rhodia Annotation Ruled Notebook. We apologize that this product did not meet your expectations. We have forwarded your concerns to our Product and Development team for review. We would love the chance to make this right by offering a replacement for your notebook.

I love my Circa notebook!
from New York, NY
I am loving my Circa Rhodia notebook! I work full time, am enrolled in a post-master's program, and I am completing an internship this Fall. I needed a notebook system that could keep all of my papers and notes organized and in one place for easy access. I am so happy I decided to purchase this notebook. My employment and educational life is neatly organized together. In addition, this Circa notebook looks beautiful- professional and put together, unlike a spiral notebook or binder. If you are deciding whether or not to buy, I wholly recommend it!(Don't forget to buy a Circa punch too :)
Circa + Rhodia = Mid-Lifesaver!
Never the most organized person, I find as I get older I'm more apt to misplace things, and my old method of grabbing the nearest scrap of paper to write business notes, reminders, to-do lists on--and then not being able to find it when I needed it--was driving me round the bend. My Circa notebook keeps it all in one spot; I remove pages as they are no longer needed, and add pages as I need them; and the annotation column gives me space to delineate notes like action items, phone numbers, important dates, etc. I may be doddery, but now I'm orderly!
from Rutland, MA
I love Rhodia paper and I love the Circa notebook system. What could be better? Rhodia graph paper. Please Levenger could you begin to offer Rhodia graph paper for the Circa system? Engineers use Circa too!
Merchant response: This is a great suggestion. The Rhodia line could use some additions with graph paper. I've notified our Product Development and Design Team.
