For years, I've wanted to offer a monthly planner in my shop. Timing was never right, however, for me to make it available. But this year, I'm finally ahead of schedule and carrying a limited supply on Etsy.
The planner is hardback, wire-o bound, and uses premium 100% recycled paper. Slightly textured and so soft. The covers are wrapped in kraft paper. I love this stuff. It's super durable and the texture helps to camouflage any marks and scratches from daily use. Plus, it's a classic!
The book is split into two halves using shimmery cardstock as dividers. The first half is the calendar. It includes 2 yearly views and 12 monthly views with plenty of writing space. This was a must for me when I started designing, considering most planners never really give you enough room inside the boxes. (A major pet peeve!)
The second half includes 50 blank pages for writing...or whatever you want. The last few pages are perforated into fours. You know, for those times when you need to jot down a quick note and rip out but don't want to waste a whole piece of paper? Yep, got it covered.
There's also an inside front pocket to keep small, loose papers, and a black satin ribbon to mark your place.
All text and graphics are printed in-house on an inkjet printer, and handmade with care. It comes neatly packaged in a clear cello bag and wrapped in kraft paper. Ready to use or give as a gift.
Despite all the smart phones and cool apps out there to help us stay organized, I'm still very much old-school and will always love using a paper planner. If you're interested, you can get one here.
