What are inserts? And how do I choose?
The inserts are the heart of your planner. There are dozens to choose from and this is how you customize your planner for your lifestyle. Whether you like to plan a whole week on one page or you like planning everything by the hour, there’s an insert for that! Everything from gratitude lists, wish lists, housekeeping, expense records and much more. You choose what you want! Could it get any better?
What size insert should I choose?
Choosing the size of your planner insert is as personal as picking your favorite ice cream. As much as we wish we could do this for you, only you know how large you write, what you’re daily scheduling preference is, and what you’ll be carrying your planner in. However, we hope these dimensions will help you make your decision.
Micro - This 3” x 4” insert is not only adorable, but it can fit almost anywhere making it the most stylish tiny planner ever.
Pocket - Sized at a convenient 3.5” x 5.5”, this size fits comfortably in any purse and can always be with you.
A6 - At 4” x 5.75”, this size is much like the pocket size but is a little wider, which can give you a little bit more writing room, if that is something that appeals to you.
Personal - 3.75” x 6.75”, this is a long and narrow insert. It falls in the middle as far as insert sizing and can fit in almost every purse.
B6 – This 5” x 7” insert is quickly becoming a favorite due to its manageable and relatively proportionate size.
Standard – Sized at 4.25” x 8.25” makes this insert a little larger than the others, but is a familiar narrow set up that still allows for it to be carried along in a larger handbag or work bag/briefcase.
Wide – 5” x 8.25” This insert is about the same size as a half sheet of paper. The largest of the inserts available from The 1407 Planners, but it’s still manageable to carry with you and offers the most room for writing.

What cover do I choose?
Next, you’ll want a beautiful cover to place all your inserts in. We are so excited and proud to now offer beautiful leather Traveler’s Notebook covers for your planner made by JTKing Leather and branded with our signature flamingo on the back. Be sure to choose the size that coordinates with the insert size you have decided will work for you. Now find a color you love and let the fun begin! Please note that at this time we only offer covers in our shop in Pocket, Personal, and B6. More sizes are coming soon!
How many inserts can I fit in my cover?
This really depends on the spine size of your cover. On average, a cover will fit 3-8 inserts. The covers we are offering have a double elastic but with the use of jump bands will hold 4-6 inserts.
How do the inserts stay in the cover without rings or discs?
Traveler’s Notebooks use stretchy elastic bands that you slide your inserts under and they stay securely in place. This makes it very easy to swap things out or add inserts to your planner. If you’d like to add more inserts than you have elastic bands, we offer a wide selection of jump bands here.
For more on Jump Bands check out our YouTube Channel or join us on Facebook in our group: the1407ers.
How can I make it uniquely mine?
Stickers, dashboards, charms…..so many options and ideas! Being creative in your planner is as easy as picking up a kit and letting your creativity flow. We offer a To-Go Kit and a Monthly Traveler’s Notebook Kit.
