Rhodia Ice And A Giveaway

07/27/2014

Score another winner for Rhodia with the recently introduced “Ice” tablets honoring the company’s 80th anniversary. Pure white paper with gray lines and a white cover with silver lettering embellished with snow covered pine trees. Brrr! It’s chilly out there.

Exaclair, U.S. distributor of G. Lalo products, is offering a giveaway to four Inkophile readers who want to try Rhodia Ice No. 16 pads in the grid style. To enter just post a comment and a sentence or two about how you would use an icy pad. This offer is open to residents of the U.S. only. One entry per person with four random winners to be selected on 8/03/2014 at 6pm PDT. Each winner will have until 8/13/2014 to respond. If not, a replacement winner will be selected. Fulfillment will be handled by Exaclair.

Thanks, Karen, for sponsoring the giveaway. The white paper and gray lines show off all colors of ink well. One of these days I’ll get my hands on a lined No. 16 and use it for casual stationery. I think it will be perfect!

  4. I would LOVE to use an icy pad for all of my fountain-pen shenanigans! I always have a few of the black-cover Rhodias going at any one time, and a silver sister would fit so nicely in that crowd!

  5. So cool of them! Where I have any choice, I prefer grid paper; it seems the vertical guide in addition to horizontal lines gives me the neatest penmanship. As a fountain pen devotee, I also love good quality paper. I’m dying to see the paler ink, since like you, I find the Rhodia lines often too dark for my preference.

  9. What a lovely and elegant style! I love Rhodia grid and dot pads for everything from handwriting practice to doodling. There’s no other paper that handles my fountain pens as smoothly. Right now I am practicing my embroidery stitches. I think that an elegant white grid notepad would be wonderful for sketching embroidery stitch designs!

I spend almost as much time here as I spend writing with my fountain pen collection on Rhodia Notepads…everything from letters to ink journals, lists and story ideas. The Rhodia Ice No. 16 graph notepad would be perfect for my beloved Nemosine Demonstrator and new tales to be told.

I scan all my notes into Evernote, so the perforated pad works nicely. I would love to try the Ice. It would most likely be my next carry-around pad. Thanks for the chance.
