D*I*Y Planner 2.5 Calendar, Letter/A4 Edition

Q: What do you get when you leave the D*I*Y Planner Calendar Classic templates alone for a couple of weeks with a pantry stocked with junk food?

A: They almost double in size. [The same applies to the template designer! - DJ]

The DIYPlanner.com team is very pleased to announce our first templates in Letter and A4 size: The D*I*Y Planner Calendar Package 2.5, Letter/A4 Edition.

Included here are all the templates from the Classic Calendar package, including:

  • Day Keepers, marked and unmarked
  • Weekly planners, in five different styles
  • Unmarked monthly planners, in both Sun-Sat and Mon-Sun weeks
  • Marked monthly planners, Sept 2005 - Dec 2006, Sun-Sat (my head is still spinning)
  • Yearly Reference, 2005-2006
  • Yearly Planning, 2005-2006 Academic Year (Aug 2005 - Jul 2006)

Almost 60 pages in all, designed to fit your Letter- or A4-size planner.

These templates are based on the Classic size templates by Douglas Johnston and ported to Letter/A4 by me, eric Farris. I have tried to make these templates utilize the added space of the new size and formatting as effectively as possible: it's not just simple resizing of the Classic templates, but rather a complete overhaul for the new layouts.

These templates should be considered a draft release in preparation for the final release of D*I*Y Planner 3.0 and thus formatting and design may change somewhat. Please let me know of any problems you find or suggestions you may have regarding this release.

As with the Classic edition, this is released under the terms of a Creative Commons Non-Commercial No-Derivatives License (see the legalese), which means mainly that you can't commercially print or distribute it. (Personal use within a commercial environment is fine.)

Calendar packages

Thank you for a fantastic mix of calendars. I have one small suggestion for future versions. Have a wider margin for the inside edge if possible. Using a regular three-hole punch intrudes into the print area. Still very usable but makes writing close to the rings difficult.

Keep up the great work — D*I*Y is an essential and valued resource.

How far?

How far in?

I use pre-punched paper at work, and the inside edge of the hole is about 0.5" into the paper, and the portable punch that I have puts it in just about the same place. I figured that 1.25" should leave plenty of space; a hole that far in would interfere with a facing pages on anything less than a 1.5" binder.

Great news!

Awesome news, here comes the letter size, weepeeee! Keep up the good work, I can't wait for the GTD forms!

Yearly planning and academic year

I found very useful the templates provided in this pack, but I have a request.

Could you make a template just like the academic year planner, for a calendar year? Like January to December? As I'm from Chile, my academic year (and probably for everyone that lives in the southern hemisphere) corresponds with the calendar year.

Thanks!

Mod Suggestions for DayKeeper

I have a suggestion for modifying the 'Actions' list on the DayKeeper pages.

Adding 'Time' and 'Priority' fields would be killer!!

Deeply and profoundly happy now

I silently screamed at my computer when I saw what you had created. I have 'frankenstiened' my own planner together for years now, and cringed at tweaking another for my new job. I am a former graphic designer, and I must say... excellent work! I knew there was someone smarter than me to create these forms.

Thank you SO very much.

THANK YOU!

Your day keeper page is perfect, or would be with one small change. The column for actions--can you make it like 2/3 actions i.e. "to dos" and 1/3 "To contact". This would be great for us GTDers.

2009 Please.

It would be great if you could update this for a 2009 version.

Thanks.

You rock!

You guys totally rock for creating and maintaining this great website that has been a godsend for me ('cause it's all about me ;) I love, love, love the letter size planner package. Will you be updating the letter size planner pack with a 2009 calendar (I only need the 2009 monthly pages and a 2-page year layout)? If I could figure out how to do it for myself, I wouldn't be bothering you. Thanks so much for the service you provide :)

Already done

Do you have the letter/A4 size calendar pack for 2011? I can't find it.
