Step 2: Assembly - Print

1. Start by printing the layout in landscape mode on the text stock one side first. All 7 sheets. Grayscale of black & white.

2. Once you are satisfied with the quality, turn the sheet over and print the on the back in the same landscape mode but only print 6 sheets (I'll explain later).

3. You can print the cover plain or with any design you want. I found some interesting passport stampings on the web and inserted them into Visio for my cover design. Print one side in color or black and white.

This is a brilliant design! If I wasn't satisfied with my smartphone I'd make this in a second!
I did this last year and it was indispensable. Forgot to bookmark it, so I'm back again for 2014. Thank you for a very usable and nice looking pocket planner.
This is an awesome concept with an equally awesome implementation...great work .I'm going to have to use one of these alongside my current system.
Thanks, I had fun making it. How about rating it?
<p>Very nice design! I'll be thinking about this one when I make my own. The big problem for me is I occasionally - but not always - also need an _hourly_ planner. During the school year I sometimes have my days planned out in increments of ten minutes. <br><br>Some thoughts: since this is a long-term planner, a sturdier binding / cover might be in order. Especially if you don't tend to keep back-ups - losing this to something like a coffee spill or a torn thread could be very costly! Also, the checking off dates as you go through is a nice idea but could be done by crossing out the day or date; personally, I wouldn't sacrifice prime real estate so it could have its own column. <br><br>Re: binding: I was thinking of making my own planner to fit a mini address book binder, so I could rearrange pages as necessary. If, e.g., I found one week was particularly busy and I needed to write a LOT in each day column... then I could insert a page where the whole page is just that week. That may not be as useful for you, but I think it'd be good to have the option of more than one line for busy days.<br><br>Re: monthly view: I was thinking of a landscape orientation where the weeks are four 'main' rows and the days are columns, with little sub-rows for hours / time of day. If that description makes sense? Not sure if that would actually increase total writing space per day, but it might make busy days easier to organize. <br></p>
Paper for writing is stationery. Something that doesn't move is stationary.
I did this last year and I'm back for 2014. This little planner was indispensable for me, thank you you helped keep some very important dates.
For some reason it wont give me the &quot;Reply&quot; button but I gave you 5 stars and voted for you in the challenge...Good luck!
Thanks a lot.
