Reader in search of clear-cover planner

Reader Melissa emailed me with the following question:

"The planner I'm looking for is a weekly, and ideally more of a notebook size, but at least bigger than pocket size. It would have the clear cover like this one:


I like that you can put the pages into the cover so that it flips right up to the correct page. Do you have any idea where I could find something like this?"

I've never seen a planner like this before, so I thought I'd open it up to you all to see if you have any advice for Melissa.

Please post a comment if you have any ideas!  Thanks everyone! :)


  1. Well, you could go Circa/Rollabind, and either buy or make your own clear cover. The link above resulted in a 404 for me, so I'm not sure if I'm clear on what you are looking for, but the Circa/Rollabind route can be very useful. I think Staples calls it "Arc". You can just buy the rings and then make your own covers, pages, etc. I've bought clear covers and pockets and dividers designed for regular 3-ring notebooks and then cut them to size and punched them before. This does require a punch, which can be kind of expensive. However... playing with Circa is fun too! (Circa is the Levenger name for Rollabind products). (No, I don't work for any of the above named companies.)

  2. Sarah thanks for letting me know the link wasn't working, I have now fixed it. :)

  3. I wonder if the clear cover idea would work for a weekly? I think it would be too thick, esp. during the May-Jun-July months to insert the pages into the cover. Otherwise, I think the clear cover is cool!

  4. I vote for the Circa from Levenger as well. You can buy a starter Circa which you can customize to suit you. There is also a Levenger Outlet on eBay where you can find expensive items (like the Circa hole punch) for much less. Good Luck!
