The cover is a thicker cardboard, glossy material, but there is a thicker plastic cover on the front and back to protect it. For those looking for something more substantial, there are leather and faux leather options available. The prices vary based on size.
You can add your name/year to the cover to rhe cover as well. Wjen designing your cover, you can customize both the front and back. On the first page you can add to the Owner Info Page a title and your contact info.
I created my collage PicMonkey and Images from Google. You are able to upload and view the front and back cover before deciding. It was a trial and error for me to make sure the pictures weren’t cut off near the coil.
You have the option to add lines to the top/bottom (or both)of each daily section in addition to adding 3 modules such as to-d0, work outs, dinners, exams, ruled, etc. at the bottom. There is an option to leave that space blank. There are also 8 other language options including: Danish, German, and Australian.
Another great customize feature to this planner is that you have the option to add personal dates such as birthdays/anniversaries/upcoming events. They will appear not only in the monthly view, but the weekly and yearly overview as well (if you choose it as an extra).
Note: For the mini & square there are only two versions of the horizontal layout while the A4 & A5 have 4 options. The wide size is vertical all the way across the week.
- Year In Overview (3 options)
- Coloring Book (6-2o pages)
- Sudoku (2-30 pages)
- Maps (4-10 pages)
- Address List (6-16 pages)
- Squared | graph paper (2-48 pages)
- Ruled (2-48 pages)
- Blank (2-48 pages)
- Sheets of Music (2-48 pages)
- Square dots2-48 pages)
- Teacher pages (up to 48)
You can add on the pages and adjust the amount you want at no additional charge. All included in the flat rate price listed above!
I added the year in overview for 2018, sudoku, coloring pages, squared, and lined pages.
The shipping takes 3 weeks and for those that are sticklers for a tracking number, you won’t be receiving one with this order. Yes, you have to be patient and wait, but the customer service is amazing, so if you have an issue receiving it be sure to contact them. I placed my order on October 3rd and I received mine on October 21st.
Perks to buying the planner?
Well, in addition to receiving your planner at the bundled price depending on the size you choose, each planner also includes the following:
- Elastic Closure (10 color options)
- Plastic Pouch
- Sticker Sheet (matte)
- Ruler (6 color options)
Bank Or Tank ?
Due to price, customization, and compatibility, I would definitely BANK this planner! If you’re looking to gift this to someone, you should definitely order a month in advance since the shipping is lengthy. Be sure to use the coupon code C-HAOT-IC16 (expires 11/14/16).
