What's your traveler's notebook planner size?
The first step is always the hardest! Picking a planner size can be difficult but we are here to help make the leap into the world of traveler’s notebooks a touch easier. To pick your size first decide how you will use it. Do you want it small to fit in your purse? Or larger to stay on your desk?
- Micro is the smallest at 3 x 4 and while it is cute it may not always be the most practical.
- I am going to skip over passport because it is not that popular and we don’t have a lot of options available in that size.
- The next 2 sizes in the smaller size are pocket and A6. Pocket is 3.5 x 5.5 and while quite useful most have seemed to start leaning towards A6 which is a hair wider and allows a pocket size that has that touch more writing room you may need at 4 x 5.75.
- In the larger realm we have Standard, wide, and A5 which are all 8.25” tall and from there it is just a decision on width. Standard used to be the “standard” but at 4.25” wide it seems to be skipped over now in favor of a 5” Wide option. Our A5 is a 5.4" wide (a true A5 is 5.8). We visited small and large so now let’s jump to the middle.
- Here we have Personal and B6 (and B6 slim but that one is so rarely used we even forgot it in the photo line up!). Personal is a narrow option at 3.75 (so even thinner than A6). B6 is a 5 x 7 which has not only come in as a popular size but seems to have a lasting vibe. This size can easily be used as an at home, work, or in your purse planner. We also offer the most layouts in B6.
- Now that we have discussed all the sizes I would recommend visiting our printable size guide to get a better hands on feel for the sizes.
- Also remember, when shopping by size you need to use the drop down to select the proper size.
B6 is a 5 x 7 and by far the most popular size. A6 is approximately 20% smaller so perfect for a purse planner!
Comparing to B6 again we have Wide which is the same width at 5" wide and gives you another 1.25" in height if needed.
Pocket size at 3.5 x 5.5 (basically a tad more narrow than A6). Micro is the smallest size we offer and quite cute at 3 x 4.
Now that we have went over the first step which is also the toughest we can move into inserts (step 2). Inserts are the heart of your planner so take your time and make sure you get what you need/want.
Now you have done the hardest and most important tasks of picking a size and selecting your inserts. Next up is step 3 which is selecting a cover to carry your inserts.
