Circa Rhodia Annotation Ruled Notebook
Further Enhances the Circa Experience
Having been a fan of both the Levenger Circa system, and Rhodia Clairefontaine paper, I was thrilled to see these two products combined together like this. After having tried out my new notebook, I couldn't be happier with the experience, and I've already purchased the pack of 300 sheets of the Rhodia Circa Clairefontaine paper to fill up my Circa Bomber Jacket Notebook. I wrote up a more detailed review with more pictures and a writing sample that can be found here:

My favorite binder
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.

I love my Circa notebook!
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 + Clairefontaine paper = Wonderful! I bought this because I had nearly back-to-back conferences and knew that I would need to be taking copious notes. I'm a long-time Circa fan and this paper seemed an ideal addition. It has been receiving rave reviews for excellent reasons. This paper is far superior to the reviews. Get it, use it, love it. Absolutely worth every penny. If you use fountain pens (Visconti 'Homo Sapiens' for those conferences) this paper is what you've been searching for - all glide, no bleed through. Added to the Circa format, this paper is a true winner. Go order, I'll wait.

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!

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!

This Rhodia notebook is almost perfect. I love the paper and the design. However, the problem I have with all CIRCA notebooks is that, when I turn the page, the pagers I've written on already come loose from the rings. This is especially bad when I am in the middle-to-end of the notebook.My ideal notebook would be exactly as this one, but with a perforated left binding. The Rhodia pads, which I also use, are problematic because after the very first use, the cover will no longer lie flat. These pads would be ideal with a heftier cover that would close properly and stay closed. Can your R&D department develop these pads/notebooks? As a novelist who writes everything out longhand, I would be thrilled with such products and you would have a customer forever!

COVER PAGES - defect
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

Simply the best notebook system ever! Add the Rhodia Meeting Book Pages and it gets even better! If the green grid pages came in Junior, I'd buy them as well. The Cornell System will help you make a better path to objectives, and you can even scan and tag important pages with your phone using Apps like DocScan.
