The Daily Dashboard Midori insert - free files for 2016

Those of you getting ahead of the game might appreciate these 2016 versions of the full size Daily Dashboard insert. Each booklet covers a month, containing a month on two pages overview followed by a two-page spread for each day of the month.




So here are the files.

You can choose the A4 paper versions or the Letter paper versions.

  Jan 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Feb 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Mar 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Apr 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  May 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Jun 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Jul 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Aug 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Sep 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Oct 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Nov 2016:  A4 version   Letter version
  Dec 2016:  A4 version   Letter version

What you'll download is a PDF file. This is ready to print straight away, without any need to use booklet format on your printer. Just print this straight to A4 or Letter as appropriate, with duplex set to flip on the short edge (I'd recommend you print just one or two pages first to make sure your printer deals with this correctly and make adjustments as necessary.)

Once you've printed out the pages, you can bind them into a booklet and cut to size. This video shows how.

Free 2016 planner inserts for the Traveler's Notebook - Field Notes size

I recently posted 2016 versions of my popular weekly planner layout for the full size Traveler's Notebook and for the Moleskine Large Cahier size. Today, I'm adding the Field Notes versions.




Each booklet covers half a year, so for the full year, you'll need both the H1 and H2 files.

The files are ready to print. Simply download and print on regular printer paper, double-sided with the duplex set to flip on the short edge (if you get this setting wrong, half your pages will be upside down, so practice with just a few pages first.) It you have single-side printing only, print the odd pages first, then refeed the printed pages upside down and print the even pages on the back (again, practice on a few sheets first to make sure you get this right for your printer.)

You can download the A4 version if your country has sensible paper sizes or the Letter version if it doesn't. Using either version, making the booklet will require you to cut down the printed booklet in height as well as width.

Here are the files:

  2016 A4 version: H1  H2     

  2016 Letter version: H1  H2

You can get more guidance on booklet making in this video. Remember that for this size you are cutting to 90mm wide rather than 110mm and you are cutting top and bottom to leave a booklet 140mm tall:

Free Traveler's Notebook diary inserts in the new Personal size

I recently unveiled my new Personal size traveler's notebook that I bought from Jennifer Harvey.



I promised then to make available free content in this size. Today I am providing a week on two pages diary.


The Personal size page measures 171mm x 95mm. It is based on the standard size Filofax page. 

The diary layout is based on my full size weekly insert. Here is how it looks in this size:


As well as space for each day there are current and following month calendars an checkboxes to track tasks.

I'm making available for free download PDF sets in this layout for  the rest of 2015 and 2016 for both A4 and Letter paper users. Each file contains an insert for half of the year. Here are the files:


What you'll download is a file that is ready to print straight away, without any need to use booklet format on your printer. Just print this straight to A4 or Letter paper, with duplex set to flip on the short edge (I'd recommend you print just one or two pages first to make sure your printer deals with this correctly and make adjustments as necessary.)

Once you've printed out the pages, you can bind them into a booklet and cut to size using these instructions:


Remember to cut at 95mm (9.5cm) wide rather than 110mm (11cm) wide as you would for a regular Midori insert. You'll also have to trim at the top and bottom as well.

If there is demand, I'll also make source files available so you can make booklets to cover any period you like and change the fonts and other aspects of the design.

Free 2016 planner inserts for the Traveler's Notebook - Large Moleskine Cahier size

I recently posted 2016 versions of my popular weekly planner layout for the full size Traveler's Notebook. Today, I'm supplementing these with the Large Moleskine Cahier versions.



Each booklet covers half a year, so for the full year, you'll need both the H1 and H2 files.

The files are ready to print. Simply download and print on regular printer paper, double-sided with the duplex set to flip on the short edge (if you get this setting wrong, half your pages will be upside down, so practice with just a few pages first.) It you have single-side printing only, print the odd pages first, then refeed the printed pages upside down and print the even pages on the back (again, practice on a few sheets first to make sure you get this right for your printer.)

You can download the A4 version if your country has sensible paper sizes or the Letter version if it doesn't. If using the Letter version, making the booklet will require you to cut down the printed booklet in height as well as width, but the A4 version will require only the width to be trimmed.

Here are the files:

  2016 A4 version: H1  H2     

  2016 Letter version: H1  H2

You can get more guidance on booklet making in this video. Remember that for this size you are cutting to 130mm wide rather than 110mm:

Free 2016 planner inserts for the Midori Traveler's Notebook - Monthly full size

Today it's the turn of the monthly layout:



The files are ready to print and cover two years - 2016 and 2017. Simply download and print on regular printer paper, double-sided with the duplex set to flip on the short edge (if you get this setting wrong, half your pages will be upside down, so practice with just a few pages first.) It you have single-side printing only, print the odd pages first, then refeed the printed pages upside down and print the even pages on the back (again, practice on a few sheets first to make sure you get this right for your printer.)

You can download the A4 version if your country has sensible paper sizes or the Letter version if you are in North America. If using the Letter version, making the booklet will require you to cut down the printed booklet in height as well as width, but the A4 version will require only the width to be trimmed.
