Reader needs help: Planners with wide line spacing?

A friend of mine asked me if I know of any planner that has wide ruling/ line spacing. I can't think of any off the top of my head, and unfortunately my stash of planners is still on a ship somewhere on its way to me, otherwise I'd go through them all with a ruler.

Planner ruling tends to be 6 mm for most. This is Moleskine's ruling and has become a bit of a standard, but there are some exceptions.

Due to handwriting and dexterity issues, he needs wide line spacing or blank day spaces. At this point he's not even picky about daily or weekly, although weekly would probably be better.

Week + notes formats like Moleskine's weekly notebook and similar with blank day spaces would work in theory, but I think those day spaces aren't big enough for him. I think he's looking for a week across the two pages.

And, he's a guy so nothing girly please!

If anyone knows of planners with wide ruling or large blank daily spaces please post a comment!

Thanks everyone!!

  1. I just ignore the lines and write as big as I want to. My Franklin Covey pre-printed lines were small so I just used two lines at a time. However, if you're obsessive compulsive about how your planner looks, that wouldn't work. But for me it made writing much more manageable.

  2. Franklin Covey used to have some planner style that had wide lines. I have not purchased from them since the store in my area close so I'm not sure what they have in the current line. But I bought some specifically from them because of the wide spacing.

  3. Looked through my stash and they all have tiny lines. My printing is small so I never thought about this before. School planners are out in the stores; I wonder since they are for students if the lines are wider? May have to go shopping. . .

  4. I would suggest that your friend take a look at planners designed by the Korean company, MMMG (millimeter milligram), many of these are undated and several have completely blank spaces. Here are a few links...

    MMMG Planner-M ver.5 (blank weekly)--http://shop.thehach.com/product/mmmg-planner-m-ver-5 I also have some pics of it at my neglected blog- www.schoolsuppplydance.blogspot.com

    This looks similar to the above but isn't MMMG: http://shop.thehach.com/product/gj-half-year-large-planner

    This planner also is undated and has blank weeks and is a modified moleskine layout: http://poketo.com/shop/stationery/planners/Weekly-Eco-Planner

    The Draw Your Tomorrow Planner, undated/weekly. It has some lines and some open spaces as well. http://poketo.com/shop/stationery/planners/Draw-Your-Tomorrow-Planner

    Overall, I would keep checking at TheHach, Poketo and Notemaker.com.au I have ordered from all three and have had great customer service and have been happy with the products. Perhaps if your friend would email them directly, they may have recommendations.
