What is Horacio Printing?
Horacio Printing is a Christian brand whose mission is to help individuals unlock their inner artist and connect with their God-Given purpose. Horacio Printing was established in 2014 in New York City. Inspired by Erwin McManus’ book “The Artisan Soul,” our founder, Polly, began to create a tool to help her redesign her life into a work of art. She started by building a refocus cloud that helped her reduce/minimize distractions and the rest is history! In 2015, Horacio Printing funded a successful Kickstarter campaign and began to pledge 10% of every product sold to A21.org. A21 is an incredible non-profit organization that is making a difference by fighting human trafficking globally.
Sizing / Pricing
- Classic Planner (8.5 x 6.5) – $43.50
- Lovely Planner (8.5 x 6.5) – $44.50
- Heavenly Planner (9 x 8) – $49.00
I was sent the Classic Planner which I requested. I love the black cover opposed to the pink and marble prints of the other two respectively.
- Hardcover with Gold Foil (black & pink options with gold coil)
While the cover is nice and sleek. I will say that because it is black, of course there are fingerprints. I experienced the same issue with my Happy Planner cover I’ll be using in 2017 since it is black. Although there’s fingerprints left on the cover, the planner comes with a dust bag to put in in when you’re on the go. Will I be using it? Probably not, but it’s a great touch. I can’t see myself putting my planner in a bag inside my bag when I want to get to it quickly.
Note: The darker the cover, expect there to see fingerprints all over.
- Scriptures on Every Page
- New Pages in Dream Planning
- Two Page Weekly Spread
- Two Page Monthly Spread
- Dream Planning Exercise
- Refocus Cloud Exercise
- Monthly Praise Reports
- Seasonal Prayers / Refresh Section
I will be using this planner as my devotional and although I plan on reflecting each day on what I read, the classic look of this planner will be perfect to archive for future reference.
I will use the monthly page to mark in scriptures for that day based off the devotionals that I use. For the weekly spread I will use the to-do list. There is a shaded area where I will write the scripture and use the non-shaded portion to reflect. I could also reverse this by putting the scripture at the bottom and and use the shaded area for my personal reflection since there is more shaded space than non-shaded.
I love that the planner is broken into seasons. It will be great for me to stay on top of my devotionals in addition to holding myself accountable for what I want to accomplish in 2017. The exercise pages at the beginning of each season really puts into perspective what you accomplished the first 3 months of the year and what else you want to get done along the way.

Bank Or Tank?
I would definitely BANK this planner.
I cannot express to you all how much I LOVE this planner. I’ll be using my HP for my typical decorative planning, my Plum Papaer for play planning, my Purple Trail for business, and my Personal-Planner for day to day throw in my bag. This planner though is a BEAUTY! Absolute beauty.
If you’re looking for a luxe look, I would highly recommend this one.This planner is great for those people that like a nice, simple, clean look.
