New A5 planner from Personal Planner UK!

I am extremely excited about the new fully customizable A5 planner from Personal-Planner.co.uk!!  Many thanks to Mstraat for giving me the heads-up on this new planner!

You might remember I reviewed my Personal Planner I created (and if you don't, click here to see details and photos). These planners are amazing because you can choose your cover (personalized with your name, or any text you want, in your choice of colors, or a photo), size, and every element of the planner.

You can also add customized dates like birthdays, and with their birthday calculator it will automatically print the person's age and will save the info so it will be correct in future editions of your personalized planner!

Now the new A5 size planner has more options than ever. You can choose between 4 different weekly layouts, whether you want them lined or not, timed or not, daily elements like weather, exercise and work hours, weekly lists, graphs, notes, on and on.

And in the new A5 planners, there are 40 pages in the back that you can customize with lines, quadruled, OR with a variety of options specifically for teachers!! You can choose from preschool, elementary/ secondary school, single-subject, and more.

In the back of the planner you can also get monthly planning pages, sudoku, music lines, coloring book pages, blank, lined or ruled.

The amount of choice in these planners is astounding! It's fun to play with all the possibilities.

Edited because I forgot to add: the paper in these planners is spectacular. White, super-thick. Sharpie pens and Pilot V5s don't bleed through or even SHOW through at all. Sharpie MARKERS show through a little bit, and only bleed through if the point is held on the paper!

I don't have fountain pens, can anyone tell us how this paper performs with fountain pens?

(Not to enable or anything, but they do international shipping!)

  1. Oooo interesting... I wonder if you can create one of these in A5 and not have it bound.. so no holes either... then you could punch the pages your self and it would slot nicely in to an A5 Filofax?

    Not trying to enable... but it's a neat idea!!??

    1. I've sent it in as a suggestion to see if it's possible and what the difference in cost would be.

    3. This is an awesome idea for my 2013 work planner. Designing is so easy and the website walks you through each step. With all the customization, it is remarkably affordable! Thanks, Laurie, for the head's up on this wonderful planning tool!

    4. Steve please do let us know what they say about non-bound possibilities. That would open up a whole new wonderful world of A5 Filofax insert options!!

      And yes Karyn I agree, it's a great price for a completely customized planner where you have chosen every single aspect of it!

  2. Just ordered my brother the small version to see if it helps him get a bit more organised at uni this year (he really isn't an organised person but we'll see!)

  3. I have a Lamy Safari used with a cartridge and there is absolutely no show through at all in my Personal Planner. I have the "large" size and really, really love it. There is plenty of room for keeping track of my info plus room to sketch and doodle in it. And because of the excellent paper I don't worry about my doodles bleeding through, even when I color in dark areas.

    1. The website is in British Pounds, you can go to XE.com for the conversion. 33 pounds turns out to be about $50 US.
